Why is a Marketing Plan necessary?

OUR APPROACH – Marketing Planning
Planning is an essential process. Planning provides direction, tactics, timescales and competitive advantage.
Environmental analysis – macro analysis
Audit – micro-analysis
Discuss the vision – the Big Picture.
Identify what you want to promote, products, services, price changes, new features, improved delivery, and offers.
What do you want to promote? Why do you want to promote it? What are the key features and benefits? To who? When? How? Expectations? What do you want people to feel and say about the brand, product, service, and offers?
Set the marketing objectives.
Identify the market segments and identify the marketing communication platforms these customers can be found and engaged with.
Revisit the Brand Strategy – does it need updating/developing to include any new product or service launches? Will new copy and artwork need to be created? Will creative briefs need to be planned and actioned? Will the teams involved need schedules, book time for brainstorming sessions?
Compose clear, consistent brand messages, and offers for marketing, sales, customer service, and social media.
Develop the marketing strategy/plans.
Discuss the Marketing tactics – Marketing Mix.
Develop the Marketing Communications Strategy – decide which marketing tools from the tool box will be the most effective to reach the market segments
