Marketing and Business Model Workshop
In this module, students will get a real time, real world understanding of current customer purchasing behaviours, and will learn how the use of new and innovative marketing strategies are a must in today’s connected and fast-paced world. We will cover the basics, from the evolution of the sales funnel to how it looks today, and what the current industry focusing with regards to a full connected marketing strategy: from prospecting, lead generation and qualification and funnel creation, to intercepting the customers at the right time with the right content, and guiding and influencing their purchase decision-making process. We will touch on industry standards and top CRM integrated tools.
The second part of this module will be a truly ‘hands-on’ experience, where students will be asked to create and deploy a full marketing plan that will generate leads and ultimately create sales, from mapping their ‘niche’, creating content, engaging potential customers, generating promotional activity, managing the prospect and lead funnel and ultimately making a ‘sale’.
