Online, interactive Marketing Plan Builder includes best practices recommendations, examples, and the ability to export into a presentation format
August 25, 2021 - Boston - Plannuh Inc., makers of the first marketing leadership application for proving and improving the business value of marketing, today announced a free online Marketing Plan Builder. Imbued with best practices, the Marketing Plan Builder helps marketers incorporate their goals, strategy, campaigns, and measurement to achieve operational marketing excellence.
CMOs and marketing operations professionals struggle every year to create a comprehensive marketing plan that achieves corporate goals. Without a well-constructed marketing plan, marketers dramatically reduce their chance for success and teams focus on non-strategic activities. For this reason, Plannuh has created the Marketing Plan Builder to provide structure and clarity for marketers as they prepare for 2022. The online application is based on the best practices of the Marketing Plan Framework outlined in the book The Next CMO: A Guide to Operational Marketing Excellence.
The Marketing Plan Builder guides marketers with a framework to build their plan step-by-step. With one click of a button, they can export the plan elements they completed, the full framework, and examples to an editable slide presentation format. Marketers can continue building their plan and easily share it and present it to their teams, executives, and the board for validation.
The Marketing Plan Builder includes the following plan elements, a description of what they are and why they are necessary, and best practice examples:
- Situation analysis
- Market research and analysis
- Company goals
- Marketing goals
- Marketing strategies
- Target audience, segmentation, and personas
- Positioning and messaging
- Product definition and direction
- Pricing and packaging
- Competitive analysis
- Sales channel strategy
- Sales support
- Partner and channel strategy
- Product and services launches
