Why Do You Need a Business Plan?

The need for a current, well thought out business plan surfaces as we work with businesses to strategize and carry out effective marketing. A business plan helps you answer the questions,

  • “What do you offer?”
  • “Who needs it?”
  • “Why should they buy from you rather than your competitors?”
  • “How effective are you in the delivery of services?”
  • “Why do you need a website in the first place?”
  • “What message do you need to communicate on your website?”

…and a host of other important questions.

While designing websites and creating marketing strategy, we quickly discovered that many businesses do not have a current business plan to guide them in their marketing. This made it more difficult to create an effective business website and design and impliment an effective marketing strategy.
