People don't buy products. They buy brands. Who creates brands? People. How do they do it? Through proper marketing research and planning. The traditional marketing mix emphasizes the four P's: product, price, place, and promotion. However, this fails to address two other important aspects of marketing: planning and people. Planning and people are vital to any marketing effort. Marketing planning guides how marketing is carried out, so it's imperative that it is informed and comprehensive. And because employees impact the marketing mix so strongly, it's equally important to ensure they understand and support the company's marketing actions. In this course, you'll learn about the types of people needed to create and support strong brands. You'll become familiar with internal branding and the importance of engaging employees as brand ambassadors. You'll also learn about how strategic and tactical planning are employed for conducting effective and cohesive marketing research that will inform digital marketing efforts. Finally, you'll learn about the factors that contribute to an integrated marketing communication plan.
