Introduction:

If you are not eating your competitor’s lunch, they are probably eating yours. In business, you either need to be hunting or you will be hunted. Often, this pressure to stay ahead of the competition can rush a marketing department to execute tactics like lead generation and digital programs ahead of strategic review and messaging clarity.

This workshop will take you through all the fundamentals and pre-requisites needed to ensure that your marketing strategy does a “gut check” before execution, and drives and connects all your value propositions, messaging, web, and sales tools content to ensure you are maximizing your impact on supporting the sales cycle such that you are improving the probability of a win.

Each section will have a “tactical plan” follow-up next steps guide to help with the sometimes-challenging transition from marketing strategy to marketing plan.

And with AI being all the rage, we’ll offer insights into what it can do for a marketing department on the strategy and tactical side and how that helps drive business growth.  A list of marketing AI tools with links will be provided as a reference.    

All this and more will result in a well-orchestrated corporate brand and digital strategy that will support sales and business development success. Further, by putting an impactful and effective Marketing Strategy in place that supports your business strategy, you will drive your business’s top-line growth and improve your market position as a leader with your target market. This workshop is focused on building the foundation of an effective B2B Marketing Strategy to do just that.

More than 25 worksheets and templates will be provided as part of the workshop material so the participants can use them to build their marketing strategy.
