Marketing Strategy and Planning Toolkit

Learn how to create an integrated marketing strategy and plan

Even in the digital era you need to know the marketing fundamentals to grow your business

Developing plans and strategies for marketing today is the most challenging it has ever been. There is an incredible and increasing choice of interactive devices, platforms and channels that potential customers use from smartphones and tablets to social networks and search engines. Investment in traditional channels such as TV, Print and Radio is declining, but they remain an essential part of integrated campaigns for many businesses.

Yet the fundamentals of marketing planning remain the same. Regardless of the channels available we need to research customer needs and define a strategy develop winning brand propositions for different target segments and communicate them effectively.

That's why at Smart Insights we have a dedicated toolkit and downloads to help you create an integrated marketing strategy.
