Were you Taught Marketing As Part of Your Certification?

Congratulations! You’ve finally taken that course that you’ve been planning on for ages. You’ve got the certificate or your diploma in hand, added it to your resume and your Linkedin profile, and you’re ready to step up your game.

It was very thorough, and certainly a lot of work. You’ve covered everything you needed to… or have you?

One question: Did your course include marketing?

Business runs differently these days. Globalization and new technologies are rapidly changing the face of marketing. More attention be paid to corporate social responsibility, social marketing, and sustainability. Technology has provided new and more effective ways to identify, target, and interact with consumers. Thus, today’s marketing professionals need a working knowledge of traditional media channels, social media, digital marketing and visual design. Marketing will teach you how to translate ideas into sales using a variety of strategies.

Marketing strategy isn’t confined to your marketing team. Everyone, from the President and CEO to event coordinators, need to know about marketing and building a brand, as traditional marketing functions are now included in the job descriptions of almost every member of a company. By understanding how to align marketing strategies with business strategy, high-performing business leaders make better decisions about their products, services, customers, brand, and competition, as well as how to build marketing tools for their own careers. In short, anyone in business, or anyone looking to start a business, needs to learn about marketing.

Although everyone will benefit from training in marketing, specific people who will benefit are individuals contemplating a career change or new to the marketing field; professionals who are involved in marketing initiatives at work; public relations professionals who want to expand their knowledge and skills, and anyone who is self-employed, like business owners or people involved in multi-level marketing endeavors.  Not everyone has the time to invest in marketing training.  That is where Holistic Hub Websites & Marketing can help.  We are a complete source marketing team.
