A marketing strategy is an imperative for business success. Developing a marketing strategy is not a black art but it does require analysis, strategic thinking and an understanding of the business and market-place in which you operate. I will give you advice on your current marketing strategy, create one for you, or show you how to go about developing your own. A good marketing strategy will deliver your business objectives and provide the direction for your marketing plan. A marketing strategy doesn’t have to be complex or difficult, often the simplest strategy works best.
A Marketing Strategy provides direction for the business
You wouldn’t start a journey without a map and that is just how you should think about a marketing strategy. A marketing strategy defines where you are now and where you are going. The marketing plan provides the options for how you get there. The marketing strategy will identify why you are doing a marketing activity and what you want to achieve from it. Quite simply if you don’t know where you are going you are unlikely to get there, so without a marketing strategy you may find yourself trying to navigate to an unknown destination.
Why use a Marketing Consultant to develop your Marketing Strategy
Developing a marketing strategy is about thinking and clarity. You need to be clear in your marketing thinking, to know what you want and how you intend to achieve it. Many companies fall into the trap of ‘doing’ marketing rather than ‘thinking’ about it first. Marketing agencies tend not to take a strategic approach to marketing either (focusing mainly on marketing communications) often because their clients either don’t have or don’t share their marketing strategy.
