Marketing Research will be the first component for your marketing plan. You may be doing this in house or you may elect to hire a top marketing agency, a marketing consultant, or maybe a specific marketing research firm. You need to obtain and capture all data about your business along with your products and services to help you properly facilitate any potential marketing problems. You may also be able to get some marketing data from an industry trade association or from other businesses within your specific industry.
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.
