One of the main reasons small businesses fail is due to ineffective marketing. Not having a marketing plan to guide your small business results in you doing activities because “other businesses do this” or “I was told I need to do this”.
Having a practical marketing plan for your small business that outlines all the important pieces needed to successfully and consistently market your business is something every small business should create. Think of your marketing plan as your road map guiding your business.
You may have a great product or service, but no one will ever know about it unless you tell them.
Your marketing plan should briefly define:
Who are your ideal customers and why?
What makes your business different from the competition?
What does your business uniquely offer to those ideal customers?
How do I price and package your offerings to provide the best value?
How do your ideal clients discover your awesome product or service?
Marketing is an investment in your business. Your marketing plan contains eight important areas that once defined will ensure that you are focusing on the success of your business.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that I’m so happy with my website these days! It’s finally become what I envisioned years ago. The content is there, the organization makes sense, and the design is attractive. It’s getting a weight of authority about it and I’m delighted. Thanks again for all… “Maya”
