It Helps Your Customers Understand
When you start up a new business, there are a lot of things you need to communicate to your potential customers:
- Who are you?
- Why do they need your product?
- What makes you different?
- Where can they buy your product?
Answering these and other questions is what your marketing plan should be all about. Without proper marketing, you won’t be able to effectively communicate with your customers. If you can’t communicate, they’ll go and find someone else who can.
It Keeps You Competitive
Unless you’ve just invented a new technology no one has ever seen before, you’ll have competition in your business’ market. Competition doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but it does mean you need to at least keep up with them in order to stay afloat. A solid marketing plan outlines how you’ll show your customers that you have more to offer than the competition. If nothing else, your competitors will be marketing their own brand, which means you need to market yours unless you want to be left in the dust.
It’s What Ultimately Drives Sales
Even if you have the best product on the market, no one will want it if they don’t know it exists. Some of the biggest businesses only became as such because they marketed themselves effectively. If there was no one around to market the iPhone, do you think it would have taken off so quickly? People need to know about your product before they buy it. That’s where a proper marketing plan comes in.
It Expands Your Influence
Good marketing is important to a business because it helps keep your business growing. If you don’t grow, you stagnate—and stagnating businesses don’t last for very long. Marketing your product or service is really where your growth comes from. You need more people to use your product or service and you have to attract those new people somehow.
