Training course overview

Most B2B markets are very competitive. Profit margins are being eroded and products are becoming increasingly commoditised. If you are in that situation and you want to increase your profit margins, win more customers, and become the preferred supplier to customers, you need to construct a clear marketing plan.

At present, everyone in your company probably has different ideas on how to win and keep customers. That is the cause of the problem. So you have to get everyone to adopt a consistent and integrated approach.

That is why you need a clear marketing plan that you, and they, can understand and follow.

Enroll on this Coventry Academy training course today and learn how to construct a marketing plan that works for your business.
