WORKSHOP - MARKETING IS NO LONGER ABOUT THE STAFF THAT YOU MAKE BUT ABOUT THE STORIES YOU TELL
Marketing continues to be one of the main activities that determine whether or not a product and/or service are successful. Until this day the record-breaking success of the Iphone can be mainly accredited to the storytelling techniques of Steve Jobs. While a product or service may be ideal for satisfying a consumer’s needs, the consumer may reject it if the manner in which it is presented to them is inappropriate. Many products have even failed simply because of ineffective marketing communication strategies. “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place”(George Bernard Shaw).
Marketing communication strategies have been forced to change just as quick, if not quicker, as the changes in society. Technology advancements have forced companies all over the world to reinvent how they communicate with their customers. This workshop will educate the audience on the advancements of marketing communication all the way to its digital form.
