Introduction

What is a marketing strategy? 

A marketing strategy most often refers to how a business or organisation plans to attract potential customers, so letting people know it exists and engaging them.

Some important aspects that are usually included in a marketing strategy would be a brand identity (explained in the workshop), the platforms and methods you want to reach people, some key messaging and, most importantly, an understanding of who you want to reach e.g. who would be interested in using or buying your idea?
