MARKETING PLAN DEVELOPMENT
VALIDATE YOUR INVESTMENTS
Only 10% of small businesses have a marketing plan.
It’s kind of like driving a car; it’s difficult to reach your destination if you don’t know where you’re going!
Your business will have a competitive advantage if you are in the 10% that develops a personalized, workable marketing plan.
PLAN ON IT – REDUCE BUSINESS UNCERTAINTY
It’s often a challenge for business owners to understand which marketing strategies and activities are most effective.
A marketing plan provides a clear reference platform for evaluating, prioritizing and selecting marketing activities. It is also typically a requirement for funding a business.
Developing a marketing plan can require considerable research on your market, your competitors, and so forth.
The planning process provides a unique opportunity for gathering information and encouraging objective discussions. But it is time well spent given the importance of optimally using your limited resources.
