why have a marketing plan?
Do you know what you want to achieve in your business or are you winging it? (and there’s no judgement from me there if you are winging it - that’s one of the biggest mistakes I made in my own business.)
Without focus and direction - without a plan - it’s all but impossible for your business to truly fulfil its potential. And isn’t that what we all want for our businesses at the end of the day?
If you’ve never written a marketing plan before it can be a daunting prospect. But without a marketing plan, are you really giving your business the best chance to really thrive?
(Hint: the answer is no)
Having a robust marketing plan gives you clarity on:
your business goals
who your target customers are and how best to reach them
how to talk about what makes your business the best choice for your potential clients - what makes you different
how to position and price your products or services so they are aligned with your business goals and brand
what marketing materials you need to support your business
the best ways to promote your business to achieve your business goals
what you need to do online to support your business (including websites and social media)
your numbers - a realistic budget and a forecast of your sales
what you need to be measuring to ensure you stay on track
what marketing success means for your business
I'm not going to pretend it's not a lot of work, because it is.
And the work doesn't stop once the plan is written, but it is worth the effort and investment.
It's much easier to work to a plan, than make it up as you go along and then wonder why you're not getting the results you hoped for.
get a marketing plan that's useful and practical...and won't end up written, then forgotten about
Here's why it makes sense to team up with me to get your marketing plan written.
I've written a lot of marketing plans over my 20 year marketing career. I'm generally quite modest, but I am happy to state I am the queen of writing concise, clear, practical and actionable plans. I don't waffle on. And I don't have my head in the clouds and my hands in your wallet wanting to spend all your money.
I believe it's critical to be recording and measuring your results, so as part of your marketing plan you get a customisable template to record and evaluate your results.
We'll be working together...it's not about me telling you what to do, it's about me being able to tease out what you really need and put in place a plan that works for you.
I'm realistic. I know the difference between what's actually achievable and what's nice to think you'll do but will never get done.
