    • Role of marketing
      • marketing provides the ammunition for the front-line of sales that ammunition could be the right product, competitive pricing, inspiring collateral, intuitive training, etc...
    • Provides much more…
        • The voice of an organisation – public relations
        • The interactivity of the organisation – digital marketing
        • The eyes and ears of the organisation – research
        • The managers of the organisation – customer-centric processes
        • The trackers of success – marketing and business metrics
      • Marketers shape and develop new products; develop and track strategic and tactical plans; assign and control budgets; and build knowledge about the organisation’s customers.
    • Critical business function
      • Marketing is critical for organic growth of a business and its central role is in creating, communicating, capturing and sustaining value for an organisation.
      • Marketing helps a company create value through better understanding of the needs of its customers and providing them with innovative products and services.
      • This value is communicated through a variety of channels as well as through the firm's branding strategy.
      • Effective management of customers and pricing allows the firm to capture part of the value it has created.
      • Finally, by building an effective customer-centric organisation a business attempts to sustain value over time.
