Developing a Marketing Strategy

Organizer: NYC Department of Small Business Services

Many business owners spend significant money on marketing. But few have a research-based marketing strategy that ensures every one of those dollars is well spent.

The goal of this course is to help entrepreneurs at any stage build a foundational marketing strategy that will inform every marketing tactic they use.

During this course, you will:

  • Define the “why” behind why you are in business
  • Map out your customer using a customer persona
  • Develop your unique value proposition (UVP)
  • Write and deliver an elevator pitch
  • Understand the value and role of digital marketing in a business strategy

This course is the first module in the NYC Department of Small Business Services’ (SBS) six-module Digital Marketing series. It is followed by the second module, “Creating Content Your Customers Value.”
