“This course was a fascinating look at the ways marketing works to develop your brand and engage existing and potential customers.” –Josh, Business Development Manager, and Fall 2017 short course participant


Have you ever questioned if you are investing your marketing budget in the most effective way? If you are a ceramic or material company business leader who wants to improve your skills in marketing to a technical audience, join engineering marketing industry expert Rebecca Geier for this one-and-a-half day course.


Course description and learning outcomes  

Ceramic company business leaders across disciplines often question what the best marketing investment is for their company. Redesign the website? Attend the same trade shows, or try new ones? Start an AdWords or LinkedIn ad campaign? When you add in new marketing terms—from content marketing to inbound marketing—it is even more difficult to understand the language. Finally, while there are many viable marketing investment options, all have different measures of ROI and varying degrees of effectiveness for skeptical, technical audiences. Attendees will hear answers to these and other common marketing challenges, while learning about new data and best marketing practices for marketing to highly technical audiences.


“I have been coming to the Ceramics Summit for six years and Rebecca’s presentation was the best interactive and most beneficial program that’s been provided at ACerS,” —Mike Alexander, VP at Allied Mineral Products and President of the American Ceramic Society.
