Every Business Needs a Marketing Plan
Having a well-defined Marketing Strategy Planning Process can keep your business on course when unexpected challenges arise.

Maximize the Value of Your Marketing
Marketing planning closely aligns with your business plan and overall business strategies. Creating and following a marketing plan will maximize the value of your investments. Having a sound marketing plan will help you effectively execute on strategies that lead to your business goals, including revenue, profitability and product development.
The scope of your marketing plan depends on your company size and industry. Some organizations require a formal document with timelines, schedules and annual budgets tied to each. Others require a more flexible strategy and plan that may be adjusted on a quarterly, or even monthly, basis.
The sheer volume of marketing tactics available today can blur the lines between following a sound marketing strategy that leads you toward goal achievement and a “gambler’s approach” that can drain your budget and produce unpredictable results. Listed is a sampling of traditional and online marketing options:
- Print advertising
- Radio advertising
- TV advertising
- Foot canvassing
- Direct mail
- Press releases and media coverage
- Search engine optimization (SEO)
- Search engine marketing (SEM)
- Pay Per Click (PPC)
- Landing pages
- Robust HTML email and newsletters
- Online videos
- Blogs and RSS feeds
- Social networks
