The third section of the marketing plan is GOALS. This is where you lay out exactly what you want to accomplish with your marketing efforts. Without goals you will never have a benchmark to compare to. If your marketing plan is a one year plan, how will you know if you were successful or not at the end of the year of marketing activities?

Having these points predetermined will allow you to continually assess the effectiveness of your efforts.
