Developing Your Marketing Strategy

When it comes to marketing, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. The most important part of developing a marketing strategy is understanding your audience and what your target audience wants or needs from your products or services. Once you know this, you can develop a marketing plan and strategies to reach them where they are and encourage them to take your desired action. You cannot simply make insubstantial statements such as “we are the best” because most customers prefer doing their own research and discovering these facts. Developing your marketing plan and strategy is vital for discovering your company’s top goals and objectives and ways to achieve them.

Many different elements go into a marketing strategy that requires careful planning and execution. The most important are your value propositions, key brand messaging, data on target customer demographics, data on competition, marketing budget, and all before you focus on your advertising channels. 

Steps in Developing Your Marketing Plan

  • Conduct a Competitor Analysis along with a SWAT analysis of our business. This analysis will allow you to see how your business matches against your competitors, what your strengths and weaknesses are, and what separates you from your competitors.
  • Conduct a Customer analysis because you need to understand the strength of the need for our services or products. Simply marketing your business with guns blazing will waste money and make your business look like you do not understand the real needs of your customers.  
  • Craft your marketing message with the data our analysis revealed. Your message should be honest without the sales gimmicks and include your value propositions and unique value propositions. Your marketing messages will consist of everything from the story behind your services or products to how your services and products are solving customers’ needs.
  • Develop a living budget for your marketing plan that details what to spend on each advertising campaign and channel and goals to measure success and ROI.
  • With everything in place, you now begin to utilize each advertising channel for its strengths that use your marketing message. Everything from your website, paid ads, and social media will have a consistent message that resonates with your targeted audience.
  • Now that your campaigns are running, closely monitor them for results. With these results, you begin to conduct A/B tests, which are altering a segment of a campaign in order to see if you can achieve better results. It’s easy to lose focus here because business is increasing, and you begin to have little time to measure results and improve. When this vital step is omitted, you may notice business decreasing and wonder why. I have seen many roller coaster results because companies put good steps in place to grow their business but fail to monitor and make changes for continued success.

So if you’re looking to grow your business, it’s essential to start thinking about a marketing strategy today. With the right approach and tools, you can reach more customers and ultimately drive more revenue for your company.
