Thursday, October 19, 2023, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM MDT
Category: Education

The busyness of everyday marketing tasks and assignments can sometimes make us forget how budgets and finance play an important role in the work we do. Why are budgets vital to our marketing roles, and how exactly do you go about establishing a budget? This 1-hour session will walk you through the relationship between finance and marketing and how a proper understanding of this relationship can help you develop a marketing budget tied to your overall firm strategy and adhere to it throughout the year. Travis will also explain how financial knowledge will enhance your big-picture understanding of your firm’s business and make you an even more valuable asset to your company.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn why finance is important to understand as a marketer
  • Understand finance/accounting basics necessary for creating marketing budgets
  • How to create an effective marketing budget
  • Become a more well-rounded resource at your company with an enhanced big-picture understanding of your firm and potential customer’s business
