If you have decided to start a business then you have embarked on one of the most exciting adventures, and I can definitely tell you; It is no simple task or “smooth sailing”! Nevertheless, good on you! Starting your own business or being part of a team that embarks on the road of entrepreneurship is indeed one of the most rewarding experiences and life changing moves you could involve your self in!
Regardless of what you think, no matter how amazing, unique and innovative your service or product is, you are going to have to let people know you exist. Don’t expect people to magically appear at your door with a fist full of money to give to you. You are going to need to put extensive work on letting people know who you are .
Is this for me?
The Marketing Basics Series is for anyone that is planning, in the process or has started a business. Even a mature company can update and brush up on its understanding of marketing and new trends. Marketing is not something that is specific to a size or nature of an organisation, it is a philosophy of management and existence and should be implemented strategically by anyone interested in communicating what they offer.
By following this course you will obtain a basic understanding of what we professionally offer at Pink Panster and you should have a fundamental understanding of some of the basics of marketing, communications, and PR.
