Nature and Role of Marketing Analysis (Byte Size Skills Course)

The analysis of the market is an important part of any overall evaluation or implementation of a marketing strategy. The techniques employed by analysts can be used to assess the correct marketing mix, changing market structures, support or reject hypotheses that have been proposed and forecasting or estimating market potential, to name but a few. This course looks at the differences within data, the range of data that can be encountered in marketing analysis and some of the main techniques used in the evaluation of such data.

A marketing analyst makes use of a wide selection of techniques from the quantitative methods in order to explain the market, forecast elements of the market and support management and corporate decision making.

The course will examine techniques from the quantitative methods which find widest use in the analysis of markets, such as hypothesis testing, which can be used to examine data and statistics from samples with a view to supporting or rejecting assumptions about the market population. Regression and correlation will be examined as techniques that can be employed to assess the existence and strength of relationships within a market and also their use as a possible forecasting tool. Finally, an introduction will be made to a range of multivariate techniques, which have found widest use in marketing analysis in the analysis of data from questionnaires. It is quite common to link the multivariate methods to enrich analyses. The section covering these methods will make use of a case study to demonstrate this.

Modern approaches to analysis make wide use of questionnaires to obtain primary data and computer software to analyse data. The first section of this course will therefore introduce different types of data and the approaches to coding data for analysis. There exists a wide range of statistical packages to analyse data; probably the most widely used package in the UK is Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), which has been used to facilitate analyses for this course.

By the end of this course you should be able to:

Section 1

  • Explain the use and application of variables.
  • Distinguish between the different principal types of variables.
  • Explain and identify four categories of data measurement.
  • Understand the procedures for coding data.
  • Distinguish between the methods of summarising data using location and dispersion measures.

Section 2

  • Calculate a standard Z score.
  • Set up a confidence interval with known parameters.
  • Appreciate what is meant by an hypothesis and understand the difference between a null hypothesis and an alternative hypothesis.
  • Undertake an hypothesis test and appreciate the importance of significance in hypothesis testing.
  • Undertake a chi-square test on two-dimensional data (hypothesis on non- parametric data).

Section 3

  • Understand the nature of bivariate data and straight-line relationships.
  • Measure the strength of linear relationships between variables using coefficients of correlation and determination.
  • Determine a least squares regression equation and line.
  • Estimate and forecast future data values using technique of interpolation and extrapolation.
  • Be familiar with one approach to the analysis of a time series set of data.

Section 4

  • Explain the concept of multivariate analysis in marketing.
  • Describe the application and use of a range of multivariate methods as individual techniques.
  • Describe the application and use of a range of multivariate techniques linked in an analysis.
  • Interpret printouts from a statistical package (SPSS).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 1 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
