Guided learning hours: 60

Unit in brief

Unit introduction

Customer communications is a key component in the overall marketing strategy of an organisation to engage customers. Organisations may have many different types of customers. Understanding how to best engage with these customers by segmenting and targeting them means that organisations can better meet the customers and the organisation’s needs. By understanding their different buying decision processes, organisations use this information to retain customers, gain new customers or launch new products.

In this unit, you will look at the variety of different methods that can be used to segment and target a variety of different customers in different buying contexts, including business to business (B2B), business to customers (B2C) and not for profit (NFP). You will then be given some detailed information on a given business within a given theme and will need to evaluate the stages and influences on the buying decision-making process for a selected customer segment that you have deemed relevant.

This unit will help you to progress to employment in marketing agencies or in-house marketing departments. It will also help you to move on to further study in higher education or to professional qualifications related to marketing.
