Today’s marketers have to assess the value of an ever-increasing range of activities and justify decisions in terms of anticipated ROI. As if that’s not challenge enough, authors and editors
can have high expectations, yet often time and money are in short supply.

This workshop is designed to help you capture the value of all areas of marketing activity and present them positively and professionally, even when resources are limited.

What’s the day like?

It’s a mix of tutored sessions on the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of planning and budgeting, and short exercises to get delegates thinking creatively, applying suggested templates to their own projects.

Who should attend?

Anyone with the new responsibility of marketing within publishing, or anyone who has tended to shelve the ‘planning’ through lack of time.


  • The customer journey, market segmentation and the marketing funnel, the marketing mix, the 4Ps, and how all of this applies in the real world
  • The key activities and channels and how to make use of them cost-effectively
  • Setting precise objectives and targets
  • Devising and managing a budget
  • Marketing plan templates
  • Getting the best from authors and the value of author questionnaires
  • How to present a small-budget marketing plan to an author with confidence
  • Measuring and reporting on results/ROI.
