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.
To prepare for your discovery meeting you first have to contact Marketing.com using their online form, chat option, or via email or phone. They will want a brief overview of your product and services, and then they will schedule the discovery meeting. For the discovery meeting you will want to bring along: The existing marketing plan or strategy, Analysis reports, SEO strategies, Product/service descriptions, Development descriptions, Demographic information. The marketing professional will then be able to look at these and ask more specific questions to gain insight into what would be the best marketing services to include in your plan.
