Marketing Plans

Before you invest in advertising, a marketing plan will help keep your team headed in the right direction. If you have a current and completed marketing plan, we align our work with it. If you don’t, we can develop a new one or update an existing version with new information.
We partner with you to clearly state your vision and mission and how you bring value to customers.

We create a clear plan for how you’ll achieve your company’s goals and milestones for the future. We help you tie in your company’s core values and principles into your plan. In this process, we help define how your team should behave based on your beliefs. The plan should include your brand promise, unique value proposition, target market, competitive position, and other market factors. It’s helpful to have a full analysis of what benefits your brand offers and how it solves your customers’ problems.

We can help you create or adjust strategies, set business goals, and understand current and future risks. Some factors may benefit your business and you may want to make changes for your product lifecycle or marketing tactics.

Your marketing plan also includes an analysis of your existing customer profile and their common attributes.

We look at each industry/market, the company size, product purchased, average order size, average order frequency. We look at their buying motivations. Is this customer profile a good match with your company’s desired future state?

We research and assess your Ideal Customer Profile (ICP). This type of customer buys from you with loyalty and frequency. They recommend your brand and refer business to you. Getting more customers like this should be your sales and marketing focus.
