    5. 5. Selling or Marketing <ul><li>There is an important distinction between ‘selling’ and ‘marketing’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Selling’ is about persuading your customers to use your services and buy your products </li></ul><ul><li>Marketing’ is about making sure that you provide the products and services that your customers want to buy </li></ul><ul><li>The more effective you are at marketing, the easier it will be to sell! </li></ul><ul><li>The problem often is that short term pressures to sell can make it difficult to spend the time and allocate realistic funds for marketing. </li></ul>

    11. 11. The Customer Experience …or another way of thinking of your ‘Brand’ <ul><li>What do you sell? What are you selling? Two different questions! </li></ul><ul><li>To create a good, lasting experience you have to create a good relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone in your organisation plays a part in creating and maintaining this relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>A relationship is founded on values. In a corporate environment, values are not just the usual qualities of trust, integrity, honesty, loyalty and respect – they embrace a dozen or more other attributes that define the quality of the customer experience. </li></ul><ul><li>If this is obvious to you, don’t assume that it will be obvious to everyone else in your organisation! </li></ul>

    30. 34. Survey Swift Overview <ul><li>Survey Swift has a high level of functionality. It has many question formats and enables you to create filters that direct respondents through surveys according to their previous answers.

With a block of responses, you can conduct as many surveys as you wish each year, with no limitation on the number of questions in any survey. </li></ul><ul><li>If you purchase a block of responses, our training programme covers the principles of questionnaire design in addition to how to use the system. </li></ul><ul><li>We provide interactive support over the Internet – if you need help when designing a questionnaire, we can monitor your progress and suggest alternative approaches, on the telephone, whilst you are actually working on the questionnaire. </li></ul><ul><li>If we are building a questionnaire for you, we can give you interactive access so you can see its progress and comment as necessary. </li></ul>

    32. 36. Feedback Steph Bowen, Marketing Manager, Kent Union, University of Kent At Kent Union we have been working with Hedley Basford of Survey Innovation Ltd to develop online Student Satisfaction Surveys. The software has given us a foolproof way of developing questionnaires which has allowed us to find out more about our Students and our service provision than has ever been possible before. The support and guidance provided by Hedley has been invaluable in helping us to get the best from the system and I would be happy to recommend Survey Innovation to anyone looking to develop their online research capabilities. This system has made Marketing Research a pleasure to do!
