A quote that I use on a regular basis is "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail" by Benjamin Franklin. In business, the most important plans to have are a business plan and a marketing plan. Today we will discuss the marketing plan. The marketing plan shows the direction of all marketing and advertising efforts. Remember, marketing is the total efforts of getting together buyers and sellers, whereas advertising is the types of communication used in marketing. Advertising includes TV, radio, online, print, and other mediums. Let's go over some important parts of the marketing plan that will help your business succeed.
The marketing plan is the overview of multi_channel approaches you should be implementing to develop and retain your prospects. It may include a call for brand development and demand generation as well. If your existing strategy is somewhat successful, but you want to grow _ the marketing services it recommends may be more focused on customer relations _ such as social media marketing, email marketing and telemarketing services.
