Overview

Marketing is concerned with identifying and satisfying customers' and consumers' needs. Its aim is to ensure that the business is able to anticipate changes in these needs, and to gain and retain customers efficiently and profitably.

Although marketing is concerned with satisfying these needs, its scope goes far beyond the process of selling goods and services. Indeed, to be truly effective, the marketing process needs to be present throughout the entire business process, building on a broad understanding of the markets which the business serves, designing into the product or service the characteristics which consumers and customers will find attractive and ensuring that the entire business adopts policies and strategies that cater for their needs.

About our Marketing Course

Marketing is sometimes presented as a discrete, specialised function or as a set of techniques. But as this marketing course will make clear, a more appropriate understanding of marketing only emerges when it is viewed as a business philosophy or as a principle around which the business can be organised and managed.

Introduction to Marketing Management

Approaches to Environmental Monitoring in Marketing

The Characteristics of Industrial, Consumer and Service markets

Market Segmentation

The Marketing Mix

Communication in Marketing

Level 3 Marketing Certificate of Achievement

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that learndirect has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by learndirect to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
