The former concerns how people buy products and how knowledge of buying behavior can be used by marketers, while the latter concerns analyzing a market as part of the development of a marketing strategy. This immediately raises some fundamental questions such as:How do consumers decide what to buy?How do marketers use that knowledge?What is a market?What is a marketing strategy?What kinds of analysis do marketers do to determine whether a market for a new product might exist?Your SLP asks you to develop a marketing strategy over modules 01 ? 05, broken down into five parts, one for each of five modules, which begs the question ?What?s a marketing strategy and how does one do one??The resources on this page will directly help answer all those questions.Resources for All ModulesThe course designer has prepared background materials for each module that can be accessed through the presentations link at the top of each page.An extensive glossary of marketing terms can be accessed atMarketing Power Dictionary (2011).
