Something totally unforeseen has happened and my marketing plan has stalled! Should I throw out my plan and try again next year? Maybe I will just sweep it under the rug because…eh, I wasn’t that serious about it anyway. After all, it was more of a suggestion! What is the real benefit of following it? It has already started to crumble and fall apart, right? WRONG!

It is in moments like these that you need to firmly immerse yourself in your marketing plan and follow these three steps:

  1. Identify - First, identify what went wrong.  Maybe budget cuts happened, or you did not meet a projected goal, that’s okay. It’s important to identify the error and move on to the next step to fix the error.

  2. Analyze - In life it is important for us to learn from the unexpected, and the same goes for your marketing plan. It is in confrontation with the unforeseen that we grow and learn the most.  In order to learn it is important to analyze...

It’s 2017, and now that you’ve identified your goals, it’s time to execute them.  Whether you hope to increase sales or start a new business the strategy will only vary slightly.  So, how do you get there? It’s really quite easy! Follow your marketing plan, and these steps, and you’ll be well on your way.

The first step is picking out the most time sensitive items.  I recommend taking each item on your marketing list and rate the items in order of importance.  Consider both print and digital marketing materials in this review.  If you’re starting a new business I suggest having both print and web marketing materials.  

Once you place your items in order of importance, the next step is to start implementing them and developing a way to track and measure your marketing plan. Begin by choosing a method for monitoring and determining how often you need to measure.  At Harkcon, we use Google Analytics to monitor o...

Creating a Marketing plan can seem overwhelming.  Where do I begin? What do I need to include?  How do I know it will work?  These are all valid questions, but it does not need to be so complicated.  To create a marketing plan you simply need to follow these 5 steps and you will be sure to meet your goals. 


1. Company Analysis 


A company analysis is the first step to creating a marketing plan. Like all successful projects, you first must diagnose the issues and current health of the company. During the company analysis you will need to ask questions like: What is our marketing budget? What things are working for us? What things aren’t working for us? It’s important to look at the organization’s capabilities, business environment and customers. This brings us to the next step. 

2. Identify your Target Market

Who is your target market? Your target market is who is buying your product and o...
