Proper marketing planning prevents poor business performance

A marketing action plan is dynamic and when prepared well will provide you with a structure that includes key tasks and dates with resource allocations demonstrating commitment to action not just to planning.

There are 4 key steps in the logic of preparing a marketing action plan:

Step 1: Establish where are we now?
Step 2: Identify the strategic options available and decide which way to go
Step 3: Consider the financial implications, human resource needs and operational issues
Step 4: Consolidate all the earlier steps by setting out a timetable, budgets and role allocation

Elements that will be covered within the marketing action plan include

• Analysis of existing customers
