To make the most of your marketing dollar, the first thing to do before you plan is to answer these questions: Do you have the right marketing plan? Do you have the budget to accommodate your marketing plan? Have you allocated the resources needed to fulfill your marketing goals? Do you have the proper staff in place to reach these goals? What are your strengths? Weaknesses? Opportunities? Threats?
Once you have answered the above questions, the next step is to develop a realistic plan based on where the market is headed. The above step is called developing a SWOT Analysis; analyzing your internal (strengths and weaknesses), and external (opportunities and threats) effects to your business. Once accomplished, you are able to develop a much more effective marketing plan. From there, you can look at previous goals and forecasts to develop a sound marketing plan that can help to grow your business.
Once the plans are in order, the next step is to find a way to market your business utilizing lean marketing techniques, and sound business practices.
