Why Marketing Strategy is Important

Creating a marketing strategy enables you to clarify your unique business proposition and plan for all your marketing activities around it. Start with a great understanding of who you are and what you do best, then build all of your marketing assets around those propositions. Add-in an in-depth appreciation of your target customers and their buyers personas and marketing suddenly becomes less of a gut feeling and more of a well-defined process. 

How to Develop Your Marketing Strategy

It always helps to go right back to basics. Ask your self the hard questions, such as why you are in business in the first place; what value do you really deliver to your customers; how do you want to be perceived in the market and importantly, how does the market currently perceive you? The answers to these questions can sometimes surprise, but should always stimulate discussion, and that's always a good place to start.

More considerations for your marketing strategy


Create a Process

Be methodical. Devise a marketing process that fits your brand like a glove and document it in detail. It can take time, but it's time well spent and will make the process of marketing messaging easier.

Budget Carefully

An expensive strategy can be a wasteful strategy. Be too frugal and you'll never get the results that you need. Set your expenditure at an appropriate level and watch your marketing take off.

Be Integrated

No one single marketing tactic works in isolation. Once you get into the detail of your strategy, detail how to spread your messaging using your most appropriate marketing activities & platforms.
