Developing compelling value propositions
About this 1-day Value Propositions training course:
This fast-paced, inspiring one-day course will explore and explain exactly what you need to do to develop and write really compelling marketing propositions that get noticed, get read and get results.
Whatever your market sector, and whatever product or service you sell, it’s the power and relevance of your proposition that makes your customer respond or buy.
Customers now expect suppliers, both existing and new, to communicate with them in a way that’s insightful and relevant to their particular business drivers and concerns. In response, sales and marketing disciplines have become more entwined so that they can deploy more targeted and productive communications and adopt more effective marketing disciplines such as Account Based Marketing (ABM).
What you’ll discover
Whether you are currently engaged in ABM, looking to win new customers, or want to know how to create more targeted and productive messaging, this course is for you. It will provide the expert insights, tools and techniques you need to create compelling marketing propositions that target individual people, departments and business drivers, rather than just industry sectors.
