With over 30 years experience in strategic marketing, I can work with you in assessing your business needs and formulating, where required, a practical Marketing Plan. As a former Marketing Manager for large organisations, I have the formal background to assist smaller businesses plan and market themselves more effectively.
No two companies are the same. Even if your product, structure and size bear similarities to another company, your objectives and operation will vary - and so should your marketing approach. Marketing is about identifying where you are now and where you want to get to in the future.
To achieve your goals, we need to communicate the features and benefits you can offer your customers and what makes you stand out from the crowd. A tailored marketing approach will add value and enable your business to grow and prosper.
A professional, practical Marketing Plan is the ideal starting point. If your company has never had a Marketing Plan, this is something you should seriously consider. If you have already taken this important step, but have not updated it recently, then this is something I can help with also. We usually begin a strategic Marketing Plan by establishing your short and long term business goals, which may include:
This is important to establish how you wish your company to be viewed by customers, suppliers and competitors - your market positioning. After this the Marketing Plan may typically consider and review the following:
The end result should be a realistic, flexible programme to take the company forward and measure its ongoing performance. It should be constantly reviewed, amended and referred to over future months and years.
