Reach out to customers with a brand meeting their needs, but ensure profitability!
Learn how to set prices according to expected revenues vs costs
Choose the right communication media to reach out to your customers and allocate resources wisely
Salesforce & Distribution decisions
Choose the right channel to distribute your brands, as well as distributor margins
The competition will be fierce and teams will have to monitor competitive actions and anticipate their next moves.
Exploiting market research studies effectively will be key to be successful.
