Effective marketing for your business and brand starts with a considered, well-informed, high-level, marketing strategy. For marketing to drive growth, we have to connect your marketing strategy to your current business plan and goals – and, if you don’t have one of these, we can help with that too! Once we understand what the business wants to achieve over the next 1-5 years, marketing can begin connecting the dots between activities, results, and business objectives.

Where are we now? Where are we going? and, How do we get there?
The questions ever leader should be asking. The answer lies in your marketing plan.
A marketing plan documents your planning process and no, it does not need to be a long-winded formal document that never sees the light of day!
Your plan needs to answer three major questions of, Where are we now, Where are we going and, How do we get there?
Your marketing plan will become a dynamic working document. All marketing plans need to remain agile; they will be continuously adjusted and updated in accordance with measurable data, and changes in market conditions.
Your marketing plan captures all the information you have learnt about your market, your customers, and your competition. These insights and evidence support your strategic decision-making around services, products, channels to market and sales.
And finally, your marketing plan will act as the tool that informs and aligns your teams, as it contains a coordinated set of programs, activities, timelines, goals, and budgets for tactical marketing initiatives.
