Plan and Develop Your Marketing Strategy

Updated on January 9, 2011

Proven Marketing Strategy

As the economy keeps declining we are seeing companies and business pulling the plug on their marketing plans.  This is a trend that will only lead to business failure.  In order for a business to succeed they need to plan and develop their marketing strategies.  If you plan correctly you will see a growth in sales and profits while your competition will continue to decline.  The secret to your success lies in the developing of your marketing plan. 

What does your marketing plan contain.  It should be clear and straight to the point.  Pointing out which direction you want to take your business.  How you plan on getting to the point, specifying all the methods that you plan to use.  Remember that a good marketing plan is going to decide if you succeed or not.  Not one successful business was built without a good plan in place.  This even includes blogging for money.  

Do you plan on writing all you own content?  If so, then you need to plan out how much time each day your going to devote to this.  Article marketing is part of the plan.  Known which directories or Web 2.0 sites that your going to use prior to writing will help you become more efficient and at the same time more profitable.  Knowing what keywords that your targeting, the proper phrases to use.  All this is part of a successful marketing plan.

Just having a plan in place is only half the battle.  You need to develop this plan.  This means that it is going to change over time.  Month after month your marketing strategy is going to change with the market.  What are people searching for?  How are you going to target these new customers?  Your marketing plan has to evolve with the ever changing market.  

Remember that Rome was not built over night, so you are not going to be able to put together an empire in one night either. But, you will never be able to build an empire without a proper and profitable marketing plan. Do you think that those that are successful in Internet Marketing did so without having a plan in place? This is why you need to have a plan also.


Building and developing your marketing strategies will go along way in making you successful. Putting all the social sites to work for you is a great way to get started. Remember to use Twitter and Facebook in your marketing plan, because they are the way right now. Facebook alone has 500,000,000 members and is growing each day. Do you need another reason than that to include them in your plan. Even if it is only a single fan page. You have the potential to reach thousands of potential customers with it.
