What is

The Marketing Deep Dive


This is a 6 week online course.

Marketing today is far more diverse and complex than it was five or seven years ago, which is why viewing it as a much needed discipline as opposed to a “nice-to-have” is so crucial for startups who want to scale. Our marketing course has been designed to provide entrepreneurs with a ROI toolset that is practical in its application and rigorous in its approach.

Each of the six modules takes a deep dive into the intricacies of marketing starting with the process of truly understanding who your customers are, where they fit into a sales cycle, developing specific sales and marketing goals all the way through to the intricacies required when developing a marketing campaign.

The beauty of this course lies in its ability to clear through the unnecessary clutter that so often accompanies other marketing programmes and instead empowers entrepreneurs to build businesses that are successful and significant.

Course Overview

Module 1

Customer

Regardless of how amazing you think your product or service is, if you don’t have customers then you don’t have a business. Marketing to customers is key, however, before you embark on this journey, it’s important to know who you’re going to marketing to and what methods are best suited for each of your customer segments. This module dives into why it’s critical to understand your customer and how they make their purchasing decisions.

Module 2

Sales and Goal Setting

Sales and marketing often work in parallel. The key to understanding sales and converting ‘would-be’ customers into brand loyal and repeat customers is knowing the sales funnel inside out! This module will focus on the different levels within a sales funnel and also touches on goal setting – a crucial component to any sales and marketing plan.

Module 3

Brands and Marketing

Brands are big business and can play a major role in moving your startup to the next level. In this module, we’ll focus on how to develop your company brand, including the brand personality, and some other key elements that tend to get forgotten but are necessary when it comes to scaling.

Module 4

Content Marketing

Just because you’re a startup with a limited budget doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t put a great marketing plan into place. The art of marketing, specifically when it comes to startups, is to focus on creating interest and impact. In this module, you’ll learn the basics of content marketing and discover how effective it can be in promoting your business.

Module 5

Social Media

Leveraging the power of social media might sound simple but it really is an art. In an age where customers can make or break your brand and business with one comment startups need to be focused, engaged and, above all, listen to what customers are saying (and not saying) online. In this module, we’ll provide a very practical step-by-step guide on what social media platforms are available, which platforms to leverage off and how to go about setting up an account on the platforms that best suit your business.

Module 6

Search Marketing and Your Personal Brand

Search engine marketing can be difficult to understand and even worse to implement. Our final module breaks search engine marketing down into its finer (and easier) details. We will also delve into the importance of developing your personal brand and how to leverage off that.
