CPD Course: Working with Marketing

Working with Marketing

Reputation, engagement, communication: while it may sound like we’re describing a healthy social life, we’re actually listing just some of the reasons that an organisation relies on great marketing. Marketing communicates what an organisation has to offer to its audience, keeps customers engaged and coming back for more, and preserves the organisation’s reputation with these consumers. Without it, there is no profit, no growth and no longevity. 

Since the success of marketing can benefit an entire organisation, understanding its role and providing support should certainly be a priority. Finance professionals are especially essential for supporting marketing through activities like pricing and budgeting. This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge necessary to become an asset to your marketing function and, by extension, your organisation.

Provides 12 hours of CPD

  • How the essential elements of a marketing strategy are defined and controlled so you fully understand how finance contributes to marketing success through budgeting and pricing decisions and monitoring key performance indicators
  • How data, including big data, and the insights from this can be used to market and price products more effectively 
  • About the stages of the product life cycle so that you understand how you may need to adjust prices and budgets in response to changing costs and sales 
  • How to use direct product profitability, customer account profitability and customer lifetime value calculations to determine the most profitable products and customers to focus on 
  • How marketing (and, by extension, finance) can use the PESTEL model to tailor the marketing strategy to capitalise on the latest trends and address developing threats
  • The ways that finance and marketing work together to achieve the organisation’s goals

In addition, this course includes a range of practice questions to cement your knowledge of working with marketing, as well as a practical workbook to help you apply this to your own finance role.

By returning your completed workbook, you can earn a certificate of completion for your completed CPD hours.
