Writing a marketing plan
Working out how your marketing strategies will fit together is an important part of planning your business. A marketing plan lists your key marketing strategies and explains how each one will work, how much they will cost and how the strategies support each other. Things to consider when writing a marketing plan are:
- price: will you price as a quality item, or try to undercut the competition, or encourage bulk buying(‘buy one get one free’)
- advertising: will you include the internet, print or other media?
- direct marketing: will you contact by mail, email or phone?
- public relations: should you have a public launch or press release, or sponsor a community group?
- trade shows or events: how will you assess customer interest?
- customer service: how can you be assured of good word of mouth (money back guarantee, customer loyalty club)?
