How will this example plan help me and my business?
Financial services is a highly-competitive sector. Without a detailed marketing plan, your company may be missing out on many effective digital communications techniques. Customers carry out detailed research before committing to loans, policies, and insurance plans, meaning your company needs to provide impartial advice through each step of their buying journey.
This example digital marketing plan has been written to be used as both an example and a template. Read it to see how ZUKA, a hypothetical life insurance provider, summarizes their strategy before breaking down their objectives into individual tasks. You can then amend the document to include your own company's information, KPIs, objectives and strategies.
