Marketing Courses: Yay or Nay?
I attended online marketing courses only, but they really helped me market my services as a florist! I used to struggle with my small business, but acquiring marketing skills really helped me!
Even if you have the greatest product or service in the world, you’re not gonna make any money if no one knows about it. Marketing skills definitely can help change that!JollybirdTopics: 2
I never took marketing classes, but I guess what’s great about it is that you can connect with other people who want to learn marketing, and find it interesting and important. Then maybe you can develop business relationships with some of these people and you can help each other out… or maybe you can just make some new friends!potterfanTopics: 1
What was most helpful to me in the courses I attended, was to learn online marketing tips and tricks. Anyone can get a social media account and post some content, but to reach out to the right people, and to get them to pay attention and interact with your business account… that demands skills!
Businesses need to be online if they want to succeed, and marketing courses can teach you some very valuable secrets.damonTopics: 1
I think marketing skills are a very important tool for anyone running a business, or thinking of starting one. Everything you learn in a marketing program can be useful: analysing market trends and understanding consumers, developing your communication skills, pitching ideas…
Whether you want to start a business, or you’d like to work as a marketing consultant, I think everything you will learn will have great value for you.
Thank you all for your insights, it’s very interesting to read. I don’t really have any plans to start a business, but I would like to work as a consultant to help entrepreneurs boost their marketing efforts and get great results.
I think it’s right to say that marketing is a tool that every entrepreneur should master. Most focus their efforts on developing their products or services, but they have no idea how to market them, and who they should market them to! I’d like to help change that for at least a few people.wolfyTopics: 0
This is such a great idea! And since you seem to have a passion for marketing, I’m sure you will love working as a consultant and helping other people!
I guess it’s one benefit of marketing courses, there are many roads you can take once you’ve acquired all these marketing skills and knowledge. You’ll be able to help entrepreneurs… so in a way, you’ll have to market your services to them, so your marketing skills will help you do that!
I didn’t think of it that way, but you’re totally right, I’ll be marketing myself as a marketing consultant! I can’t wait to get started with the courses, I really feel like I have found my way at last.
