It is important for you to understand what the term “marketing” actually means in this context. Its concept encompasses far more than advertising or selling your company. Rather it is a complete plan you draw up that takes into account all of its strengths and weaknesses and applies them to your targeted market. Additionally this plan will help you to determine the method you wish to utilize for arriving at your prices. This plan is best put into action after spelling it all out in a document. You can store this document on your computer; however, it would be wise if you kept a hard copy of it in a safe place. That way; should you lose access to your computer files, you have something to fall back on. The best place for that hard copy would be a fire-proof safe or even a bank vault incase of a disaster occurring in your office.
The overall advice you will need to follow to design and implement your marketing plan is similar no matter what the size of your company is. The important thing here is that it must be thorough and well-analyzed. We highly recommend that you type it up on your computer; as this is the easiest way to update it. This document will need to be updated as the industry changes; which will happen relatively often.
Along with your company’s strengths and weaknesses you also want to account for any threats that may pop up. You will want to state what those threats could be and how you plan to deal with them; should they occur. In a similar fashion you will want to prepare for any good opportunities that come into the picture. Are there any opportunities you wish to take advantage of right now or in the near future? What about long-term opportunities? You ought to detail your strategy for making the best of them too. Remember; both threats and opportunities will change over the years. This means your plans should change as well. Again make sure you update your documented plans as often as you need to. This will ensure you are prepared for any business situation that may arise.
