Member Exclusive: Five marketing tips SMEs need to know for 2023

  • Broadcast: Thursday 11 August 2022

Small businesses are the backbone of every economy, as they are a source of innovation, entrepreneurship, and job creation. They are also frequent innovators in marketing, as SMEs are close to their customers, have an intimate understanding of value and are agile. SMEs do marketing that is sophisticated, not necessarily complicated.

This webinar outlines five key marketing issues that SMEs will face in 2023, suggesting ways that SMEs can identify these issues and turn them into opportunities for marketing success. CIM course director and experienced business consultant, Jonathan Deacon, will present examples of SME marketing and how some small firms have excelled in times of economic turbulence.

  • Practical examples of SME marketing in action (it’s different to large firms!)

  • Digital marketing approaches SMEs can adopt (who says it needs to be complicated!).
