Training course overview

Is a lack of B2B marketing knowledge causing your organisation to have to sell on price, and preventing you from growing your business?

Many B2B companies have no idea of what B2B marketing is. They confuse it with selling, or advertising, and as a result they are unable to adopt a strategic approach that builds their business. Instead, they end up competing on price, which reduces their margins; and their products become commoditized.
