Registrations are closed

Brief Summary:

Many STP processes are based either on obsolete principles that have been portrayed as “common sense” or very radical approaches that are displayed to be data-driven but seem to throw logic out of the window; too rigid or too loose; too complex or oversimplified.

In this seminar, participants will learn about the importance and the proper use of segmentation, targeting, and positioning in marketing. The seminar will cover the basic and key concepts, various perspectives, strategies, and techniques involved in designing and implementing practical and successful STP to inform and guide effective brand and marketing strategies.


Each participant will learn:

- How to find the most appropriate ways to do market segmentation
- How to identify and target specific customer segments
- Being up-to-date from traditional to contemporary STP methods 


The company will gain:

- A practical understanding of how to support the organization’s segmentation, targeting, and positioning activities 
- Insights for data-driven decision-making in choosing market segments to target and when, and positioning the company’s brands to win in these segments;
- And avoiding wasting resources, missed opportunities, competitive advantage and brand dilution
