Marketing is a combination of good planning (deciding what to do, and why) and great implementation. We do both.

We work with business owners or executives that see marketing as a critical aspect in their business to clearly define what they need from a marketing perspective and then we implement that plan for them (it’s no good having a great plan without great implementation).

Sun Tzu (author of The Art of War and a Chinese military legend) said: "Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat".

We plan first and implement second – implementing a number of tactics without planning is a likely (and expensive) way to fail.

Marketing Consultant & Strategic Marketing Services from Mastermind Solutions Inc.One of the critical issues that we address is that marketing is not only about the communication tools - websites, advertising, trade shows, social media etc. While those tactics may be important (they MAY NOT be right for your unique circumstances), they need to have a reason for being used, and the planning that we undertake will help to decide which of the 150+ tactics you should be using. If you are not CONSIDERING all 150+ tactics, imagine what opportunities you may be missing. Our toolbox is full - only Mastermind Solutions can provide you with such a comprehensive list of marketing tool options.

We start with the end result in mind and develop a plan that makes it come true. Cost effectively and measurably - after all, marketing is becoming more of a science with each passing day.

The following provides some clarity to our planning and implementation process, including the option of Marketing Coaching.

Strategic Marketing Planning

Strategy and tactics are often confused - they have very different meanings. Strategy is the process of thinking through the situation and developing a well thought out plan to take advantage of a market opportunity. This strategic process represents the best possibility for a successful outcome because it considers factors that a tactical approach, by very definition, may ignore or miss. At Mastermind, we have the strategic thinkers with the experience needed to develop strategic marketing plans that produce results.

Strategic marketing should be analytical and fact-based, but it requires a creative flair and an experienced marketing brain to bring reality to an action-focused plan that has great opportunity for successful implementation and measurable results.

This process involves the analysis of short and long-term marketing opportunities for the business, and ultimately leads to the creation of a long-term marketing strategy and a short-term marketing plan. It clearly lays out the marketing priorities and strategies for the business and sets specific goals for the achievement of marketing success. Areas of the business that are covered include:

  • The Marketing Environment - markets, customers, competitors and macro environment.
  • The Marketing System - objectives, strategies, programs, implementation and organization
  • The Marketing Activities - products and services, prices, distribution, personal selling, advertising, publicity, sales promotion, website, Internet and other appropriate marketing mix elements.

Our Marketing Audit process will help you to complete this planning.

This process represents a Business and Sales Opportunity Assessment (BASOA) - effectively a gap analysis that will identify the opportunities that your organization is missing to generate additional business and sales revenue. Taking advantage of these gaps will help you to create sustainable business growth for your organization.
