Develop a marketing plan

Planning success to the next level

Most businesses find coming up with creative and profitable marketing ideas challenging, so the best place to start is by developing a marketing plan that is suitable for your own business, industry, products, services, budget, time and resources.

By setting a strategic plan you will be far more likely to accomplish your goals. If you don’t already have a marketing plan in place then now is the time to start as you will be far more likely to succeed in achieving your business goals.

This is a practical interactive training workshop as we develop your individualised plan using a template that you will retain and add to as a working document in the years ahead. Plan how to combine traditional marketing methods with digital, social media and web based marketing as a holistic approach. We will work together to set out your individual objectives; come up with key strategies and tactics that you can implement immediately.

If you don’t have a plan, how do you know where you’re going?
