Course Overview

What are Marketing Fundamentals? We keep vying for the attention of our prospects after having created a product or service that we consider to be the best. This makes us introduce our products and services to the buyers in ways which not only create an impact on them but also stand out from the competition.

This requires us to focus on marketing activities and their fundamentals. Marketing is at the core of any organisation and the consumer is the heartbeat. There will be no demand if there is no consumer – and of course no sales. It thus makes it important to understand the fundamentals of the market and how to develop and maintain a competitive advantage.

All this requires the effort and contribution of all the departments in an organisation. Many times departments other than marketing or sales fail to appreciate the need to share the vision of the Marketing function leaving enough space for rifts and regular conflicts.

Do you see regular conflicts in your marketing and the other support departments?

Do you notice a lack of empathy in the support departments towards the marketing function?

This training program designed by ZOE Talent Solutions will help the participants appreciate every fundamental function in marketing.
