What happens when you go to the grocery store without a list? You spend too much, you buy things that look good at the time and you may not even get what you need and have to go back again later. The same thing will happen with your marketing if you don't take the time to make a plan! Having a solid strategy will enable you to execute a well-targeted, cost-effective marketing campaign for your business. It's all about identifying your Significant, Unique and Credible difference.
