Have you created your marketing plan for next year yet? If not, you should.

Your annual marketing plan is like a roadmap that guides the direction of your team’s goals, campaigns and growth. Without one, things can get messy – and no one wants to deal with that.

Our Founder and CEO, Jackie Bebenroth, shares the four essential steps to creating an effective marketing plan below.

Here’s a quick recap of the four steps:

  1. Develop your budget – Check out this budgetary guideline from the Small Business Administration…and our advice.

  3. Create quarterly plans – Theme your quarter and build around it for maximum impact.
  4. Build your metrics framework – Measure success with metrics aligned with your goals.
