So what is it exactly?
A marketing plan is an overview document to broadly guide and combine your business’s marketing communications activities throughout the year. Ideally it should be reviewed on an annual basis, or more frequently if your business operates to a shorter seasonal programme.
The plan needs to detail all key aspects to your marketing environment in order to be sure that your communications are of value, that the channels you are using are relevant and that the style you are using is appropriate. Therefore, your plan should primarily define clearly your industry situation, your competitive environment, your target market, your value proposition and your strategic alliances.
With this information detailed and agreed, it is then a simple step to outline strategies and, thus, the relevant marketing communications activities for the year ahead.
Investing in a good marketing plan is an investment in growth.
