Coming from a 35 year career in property and financial services, I had employed many marketing initiatives and saw the benefits of these during my career. But, like many I suspect, I had not had the basic training and learnt the building blocks. And social media has influenced marketing to the point where sales and marketing should be much more closely aligned. Undertaking Ascent Learning’s online course entitled The New Marketing Blueprint has been a very accessible, enjoyable and hugely beneficial training course for me. It puts all the pieces of marketing together in a very digestible format. Allied to this you get to keep the slides, transcript and various downloads which are all invaluable. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone and especially those who do not have the dedicated marketing resource and want to maximise their impact in this competitive world. It represents great value for money.
