WHY STUDY THIS COURSE?

  1. Many conservation marketing roles are in charities, non-profits or small start-ups with limited resources. Thus, efficient marketing is a must. This course will show you how to understand your target audience so they can be reached effectively.
  2. Changing people’s behaviour means first understanding it. This has never been more relevant as people are swamped with often conflicting information about protecting the environment. Consumer confusion over eco-labelling is just one example. This course will show you how to get inside the mind of your target audience to shape your messaging.
  3. Learning how to champion your customers and present arguments internally to ensure their needs are met will be invaluable when keeping customers/supporters loyal – something that is a modern-day struggle that many charities and organisations face.
  4. This course will teach you how to understand external trends and anticipate future changes that may influence your customers and offerings. As the sustainability market grows, so do competitors, for example. Knowing how to monitor and account for this is crucial.
  5. As well as providing marketing theory, this course gives you tools to carry out market research and analysis, plan, implement and monitor marketing programmes and manage your brand.
