Marketing for Entrepreneurs workshop at IIMB


We often complain of weak marketing in our organizations. The problem in fact is not so much with the organization but the approach we adopt to marketing. We do not ask ourselves questions like “In what way is my product/service different from that of my competitor? How can I make it different? How can I make my communication unique so that I stand out? ” and so on. In short the problem is the lack of innovation in marketing.

 

Consider the following questions.

 

  • What is the most innovative application of blue tooth or laser technology?
  • What are the ten most innovative products/services (IT or otherwise) in today’s market and what can we learn from them?
  • Why is it that some start-ups become Google-like but others fall by the way side?
  • How is it that some companies are able to charge a premium for their products and services while others are not?

 

Given our schedules we hardly get time to reflect on such issues that impact our business. Keeping these typical concerns in mind a 2-day program exclusively devoted to marketing has been planned for entrepreneurs. A broad overview of the content is given below.

 

Program content

  • How to market innovatively? How to create radically different products or services? How to position them in the minds of customers distinctly?
  • Is there a systematic method for the application of innovation to marketing? What are the steps involved and how to learn the method?
  • How do I reach my customers? Is communicating with customers different in IT as compared to say, consumer products?
  • Can I be given a dry run or demonstration of how to make an innovative communication plan for reaching customers?

 

These are some of the questions to be addressed in the program. If the participants have other specific issues they can be discussed. Overall the idea of the program is to help entrepreneurs think innovatively to address their marketing problems.

 

Pedagogy: Lectures, exercises, case studies, group discussions and role-plays

 

Course Fee: Rs. 6,000/- per participant if registered on or before 10th May

                      Rs. 7,000/- per participant if registered after 10th May

You will see how easy it is to get swept up into the day to day drag of getting a salary and buying stuff.

The magic of the game is that you will discover the answers to exiting the rat race.

Learn how to harness to power of leverage – Leverage is one of the key factors and differences between the rich and the poor. Rich people know how to use OPM (other people’s money) and OPT (other people’s time) to build passive income You will understand and practice using leverage to build your asset column while playing CASHFLOW® 101.

This game is not about playing for timepass on a Saturday afternoons.

It’s about changing the financial position and security you have in life. It’s not about the price you pay for the game because if you don’t play the game then you just made the costliest mistake of your life.
