The defines marketing as "the management process responsible for identifying, anticipating and satisfying customer requirements profitably.

And if you look throughout the web, you'll see plenty of definitions for marketing, strategic marketing, market strategy, go-to-market strategy etc.

Funny thing is we all understand fundamentally what marketing is... And we all know how bad customer experience, terrible advertising or poor sales systems & services can affect us... And yet still so many businesses get it wrong!

Businesses may not have the time to properly analyse their brand & how their customers perceive it, they can't see how their customers experience their product or service or sometimes it's just that what they've been doing has worked "ok" so far.

And yet, a good marketing plan can help you to boost your sales & increase your profit margins.

Having a marketing plan will help you to focus on your target market & to find if there are any gaps in the market that will provide new opportunities for you. Your marketing plan will also provide you with something that enables you to measure how you are progressing. This can then highlight strategies that are working for you & those that are not.

A good marketing plan will also benefit you in that it provides your outside financiers with confidence that you know your market & that you know how to achieve your objectives.
