08 Undertake Marketing Activities

Marketing Plan in action 1This is the doing part of your marketing plan. It goes into more detail about your marketing messages and how you expect to deliver it to customers. You’ll find at this stage of the process that you may need the services of a:

  • graphic designer,
  • website designer,
  • copy writer,
  • PR person and many more.

We’ll demonstrate how you can achieve this utilising the latest in technology and the Internet to get crowd-sourced talent from all over the world. You can even find people who’ll help show you how your brand can be presented.

The doing part of marketing is like telling a story and in that story you need to explain to your customers that you understand what they need and demonstrate to them why your product will satisfy their need. Sometimes it can happen using testimonials, sometimes Q&A’s help, sometimes case studies can reveal an example of what a customer is going through.
