You have to come up creative, meaningful and compelling messages that address the expectations and requirements of your audience. Select the most effective mediums of conveying these marketing messages. A variety of online and offline marketing tools are available. For best results, you will have to use a judicious mix of conventional and online marketing techniques.

List the media outlets that will be used to execute your marketing plan and break out the online, social, e_mail marketing, e_brochures/e_catalogs, TV, print, radio, PR, tradeshows, sponsorships, philanthropic partnerships, direct_mail, telemarketing, and other outlets. I would also identify which components that will be completed in house and whether you will have an outside agency to help with your media buying and planning.
