    Are Your Branches Taking Full Advantage
    of Marketing Opportunities in Their Areas?
    Businesses today face unprecedented challenges. In the face of these current challenges, there will be further emphasis on augmenting branch revenue and profit.  Branch-Based Marketing relies on effective utilisation of information to provide the right product to the right people through proactive marketing programmes.

    Consider the following key drivers:

    • The Malaysian retail market is 40% oversupplied

    • How will your organisation survive?
    • Retail chains are centralising their support functions and improving technology to meet increasing pressure to respond to customer needs

    • How will your organisation use branch networks to meet this challenge?
    • Branch managers, area and regional Managers must make the transition from operations to marketing and sales

    • How will yours do it?
    • What's in a "Name"?

    • How will your branch network compete against "signature" stores and be profitable?
    • Research and studies have shown that customers want a branch network to better serve their needs, but different from what is in operation today

    • How will you position your branches and staff to meet these need and be profitable?
