By this stage, you should be feeling more confident in your marketing knowledge base and far better equipped to leverage marketing to drive your business forward. In this final step, take the elements from Step VI above, and document them with all of the critical information you, your team, and any outside supporters will need to understand.

You should include:

  • The business goals that your plan is striving to achieve
  • Key tactics that will be employed to achieve the plan
  • Ownership and responsibilities
  • Timeframes & dependencies

With your plan in hand, you are ready to begin developing and executing your marketing campaigns. Please pat yourself on the back—you have survived and are prepared to take on the marketplace!
