BUILD A PLAN - TRAINING COURSE
WHAT IS BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MARKETING?
Business Development can mean many things, put simply it can be thought of as the implementation of strategies designed to drive growth. These can sit across multiple departments including both Sales and Marketing.
The reality of the situation is most of us need to drive new product and/or company awareness by getting people to talk to us and eventually, if all goes well, buy from us. Unlike classical sales where we can service leads, farm our existing or prospect, we need to start fresh by finding and starting new relationships.
Business Development Marketing is where classical sales prospecting and outreach tactics are merged with marketing tools to get customers to engage with you.
This course looks at sales & marketing tactics to drive sustainable interest and awareness in your products for prospects in markets you are not yet established in. Together we explore the options available but individually you build a business development plan that you can execute alone or with the help of others in your business.
The course is designed for selling solutions to end-users at Universities, Research Establishments, Pharmaceuticals, Biotec, etc or components to OEM potential partners.
The course design ensures that all tactics can be executed without a deep knowledge of sales or marketing.
