Build brand awareness and increase sales

You don’t need to hire an agency to market your business. After all, nobody understands your brand, product or customers as well as you do. This 6-week online course includes a combination of interactive learning activities, practical tools and online coaching support to help you successfully market your business, yourself. Develop a customer-centred mindset, define your target market, create social media campaigns, set sales targets and more.

This course takes a uniquely South African marketing perspective, and aims to equip you with valuable skills and tools that can be applied to your business in real time.

The Course Outline

Develop a marketing mindset, define your target market and learn how to tailor your marketing strategy to each of your customer segments.

Discover the relationship between sales and marketing, develop a marketing plan and set sales targets, build your sales funnel, and create effective marketing communication for your business.

Learn how to use content marketing to create interest in, and engagement with, your brand. Apply a step-by-step guide to set your social media pages up for success, manage your social media presence, and create your very own Facebook and Instagram campaigns.

Learn the basics of search engine marketing, explore various online advertising strategies for your business, and create your own Google ad.

You journey on this course ends with an exploration of websites that keep customers coming back, videos that hold their attention, emails that they are excited to read, and mobile marketing they want to engage with.
