Course Overview

All of us, the consumers, are free to choose among thousands of products and services. Every day, we are bombarded by all types of messages and information targeted to persuade us to buy and use anything that can satisfy our needs. Corporate Businesses of all types, either trading, manufacturing, commercial, services or NGOs, must communicate with their clients to secure delivery of their products and services. All these are achieved through various types of communication media, including advertising, social media, product packaging, direct marketing, websites, events, exhibitions, and many more. Successful campaigns consider all elements of the communications mix. In modern years, competition, technology, and environmental issues have radically changed consumer behaviour and the function of the market, with online shopping, social media, search engines, product variety and many more, in a more user and naturally-friendly manner.
