Failing to plan, is planning to fail.
Marketing plans create a path to grow your business.

Having a business and not marketing it is like winking at someone in the dark

You know you are doing it – but no one else does. 

How much is not having a marketing plan (or worse, an ineffective marketing plan) costing your business in lost opportunities and revenue? 

How many potential customers are you missing because they’re not hearing your message? 

What growth is your business missing out on because you don’t have your marketing singing the same song so that it works and generates sales?

Not having a marketing plan is like building a house without a plan, imagine how much longer it would take to build, how many errors would occur and how much money that would be wasted if there was no building plan? Would the plumber, electricians and painters be wasting time and delivering what you expect and need? Likely not. 

Failing to plan, is planning to fail.

Marketing plans create a path to grow your business. A Marketing Plan is one of the most important business tools for any company to utilise. It details the strategy that a business will use to market its products to customers. The plan identifies the target market, the value proposition of the brand or the product, the campaigns to be initiated, and the metrics to be used to assess the effectiveness of marketing initiatives. The plan works out how the business should be perceived in the market and the best way to achieve that through strategic marketing.

At M2F, we will support you and your business like it’s our own

A MARKETING PLAN DOES 5 THINGS:

A marketing plan helps you promote products and services in your business that meet the needs of your target market. It requires research, time and commitment, but is a very valuable process that will greatly contribute to your business success.

1. TARGET MARKETS

Identifies your target market and understands how your product or service meets their needs.

2. ANALYSES COMPETITORS

Identifies your competitors and what your target customers think about your competitors’ strengths and weakness.

3. POINTS OF DIFFERENCE

Positions your brand, products and services so that your target market sees your business as better than, or different from, the competition. 

4. SETS GOALS

Sets specific, measurable goals and time frames for your marketing activities.

5. PROVIDES STRATEGY

Maps out a strategy and budget to reach your target audience, including the messages, channels and tools you will use.

SMART BUSINESSES OUTSOURCE TO GET A JOB DONE EFFECTIVELY & EFFICIENTLY

To successfully market a business you need a plan. 

Many business owners and managers never find the time to get their marketing plan done. 

 On top of your current workload it is time consuming and can be overwhelming.

INVESTMENT

A marketing plan is an investment that pays for itself again and again. Continuing on the unplanned path may cost you double in time, money and energy.

EXECUTION

A marketing plan needs skilled execution. Instead of trying to have your finger in every pie, M2F’s targeted approach analyses your customers behaviour and your individual business strengths to develop a strategic plan to achieve maximum potential.

TIME

A marketing plan takes time – we take care of it so you don’t have to. How much growth in your business are you missing because you’re too time poor to create and implement an effective marketing plan? We can help you reach your goals faster, giving you more time to focus on other areas of the business.

STRATEGY

A marketing plan needs strategy. It’s one thing to have great ideas, but turning your business into a 24/7 sales machine is a whole different ball game that requires skill and strategy.

SING A SONG

A marketing plan needs to sing the same song. When you build a house to a well thought out plan, it looks good, has a comforting cohesive flow throughout that feels good, functions well and is inviting to your guests. A marketing plan is the same thing for your business, it forms the basis of every campaign, every piece of marketing, every piece of copy, how your business looks, feels, and behaves.
