In many B2B markets, excessive competition is driving-down prices, and products are becoming commoditized. So, companies must use marketing in a more effective and structured way. However, most B2B companies do not understand what marketing is. They confuse it with marketing-communications and as a result they find it increasingly difficult to compete and be profitable. They think they can solve the problem by sending out more communications, but that often achieves nothing and wastes money.

This training course will show you how to apply marketing effectively in a B2B environment so that your company can establish itself as an added-value provider and can overcome price competition. It is specifically for B2B companies and it shows best practice with many real-life B2B examples.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Help your company to use marketing effectively
  • Know how to overcome price competition
  • Win customers and build better relationships
  • Increase your company’s credibility among stakeholders
  • Prioritize marketing actions and give clear direction
  • Avoid wasteful marketing and increase profit margins

Who Should Attend?

This training course is for senior managers, middle managers, marketing executives and anyone else who really wants to understand what marketing is and how to use it in B2B markets. Even if you have studied marketing at degree level, this course shows you how to apply it in practice in B2B markets specifically.

This training course is suitable for a range of professionals and will greatly benefit:

  • Leaders who need to know that marketing is not just communications
  • Senior managers who must guide their company in the market
  • Managers from non-marketing disciplines who don’t understand marketing
  • Executives who want to know how marketing works specifically in B2B
  • Sales managers who need to win marketing support
  • People recently placed into a marketing role
