Course Outline

Unit 1: Marketing

All businesses need to consider the customer experience, and marketing puts this thought into action. It is all about drawing customers in and keeping them loyal to the business. Since products exist to fill needs, marketing helps business owners figure out which customers are best served by their products. Then it lets the public know what it has to offer. But marketing is also anticipating needs and understanding how customers make decisions. Good marketing can boost business, so even small businesses can benefit from a little marketing savvy.

those who are likely to buy a business’s product and those who are not. Or maybe it is a product that almost everyone needs, so mass marketing is the way to go.

This takes thoroughly understanding the product, considering the right promotion, knowing how to get the product to the customer, and finding the price that maximizes profit. These steps are the 4Ps of marketing and what it takes to get the message out to the public – ready to dive in?
