As the accounting and financial advisory sectors become more competitive, marketing is increasingly outsourced to specialist web developers, content managers and social media specialists. However, there remains a strong need for someone internal to drive marketing initiatives as a strategist and administrator.
Who’s driving the marketing for your firm? Where is the accountability for results? If you’re like most professional service firms, your marketing is largely focused on website management, ebulletin publishing and some ad hoc social media activity that generates little objective results. Do you have a formal marketing plan in place?
The Marketing Administrator course is designed to help administrators responsible for the co-ordination of marketing activities to take control of both the strategic and operational elements necessary for effective marketing activities. This 12 part course will guide you in establishing roles, responsibilities and expectations, setting goals, developing key elements and implementing actions with clear measurement and review processes.
