Marketing plan templates are developed by people who have achieved success online. They capture the lessons the author has learned along the way and save you the time, cost and effort required to develop your own. Once you have mastered a particular marketing plan approach, you can then expand by refining the template you have used or by adopting another template that might be more suitable for the marketing of a different product or service.
The fourth section of the plan is where you develop your STRATEGIES. This is where you choose which tools (media) you will use to reach your target audience. With many marketing tools available for businesses, choosing the right ones can make a big difference in your bottom line. Using the information gathered in the first three sections of the marketing plan template will make the step of deciding which media tools to use easier.
