Presenter: Richard Kohn
As management and marketers engage in social media there has been an increase in brand content. The strategic challenge has become developing and disseminating content that is relevant, consistent with the brand positioning strategy and meaningful. Unfortunately, and increasing volume of content is just that, content for content’s sake.
Far too many ‘strategic’ marketing plans are failing to deliver on corporate business growth targets. Why? Because these plans have become tactical, short-term operational documents inconsistent with and not tied to absent clear marketing objectives. This webinar will explain where marketing objectives sit within the marketing planning process, the key marketing objectives that should be the foundation upon which tactical operational plans developed and provide some practical tips on how to develop powerful marketing objectives.
