Start Here! First Steps in Data-Driven Strategic Marketing

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.  To be put on a waiting list, call 303-607-9957 or email Marilee.

In a world in which tactical marketing moves at the speed of light, there are certain fundamental principles that should always serve as a critical foundation for your strategic marketing. In this interactive roundtable, Leo Lewis will discuss the first stages of the marketing planning process, and why it is especially important that these be data-driven.  Common frameworks and data sources will be discussed in the context of how these can be used in a marketing organization’s planning effort.

This session is designed so that participants walk away with key strategic marketing knowledge and practical know-how, and it will help answer the following questions:

  • How do I assess my company’s internal and external situation?
  • How do I determine where my company’s strengths align with market opportunities?
  • What do I need to understand before developing marketing organization goals?
  • How do I determine the best product-market strategy to support marketing organization goals?

Armed with this knowledge, a critical foundation in marketing planning can be established.  This foundation will guide additional strategic marketing decisions related to market segmentation, target market selection, product development and competitive positioning.
