About Us

1.            Try you for the first time,
2.            Come back regularly,
3.            Spend more per visit on your most profitable lines.

That’s where marketing comes in – it’s how you get people to do those three things. 

To help you achieve this AA Training Associates has put together two marketing-based courses; Finding and Keeping Customers and Producing Marketing Campaigns. Both are aimed at making your marketing more effective - the first provides you with the basic principles involved in marketing, with the second showing you how to deliver it effectively. 

The two courses can be taken separately to provide you with any skills you may not already have, or together to provide a thorough grounding in how to market your business. Finding and Keeping Customers is aimed at those with no marketing knowledge with Producing Marketing Campaigns aimed at those who know a bit about marketing but who want to know how to do it more effectively.

Every establishment needs to generate a flow of new customers as well as encouraging the ‘regulars’ to come back and spend more. This course shows how marketing can help you do this 

At the end of the course, delegates will be able to;

1.                  Identify the most appropriate target customers.
2.                  Create marketing campaigns to appeal to these types of customers.
3.                  Choose the most effective media and forms of advertising.
4.                  Monitor and measure the results of activities.

The course uses case studies and examples to illustrate best practises.
