Knowing how to target your marketing investments wisely - both your time and your money - can make the difference between a struggling and a thriving business. It’s essential to know the tried and trusted principles and theories in marketing before you begin yours. Once you’re familiar with these, you need to know how to implement the most up to date developments in online marketing so you keep the edge in your market.

In this Marketing course, we take the introductory Marketing ideas included in our Start Your Business course and expand and add to them.
