3 Simple Steps to Creating a Marketing Plan for Your Small Business

  1.  Make a plan: Creating a road map for your public relations and marketing efforts will be useful throughout the entire process. Be sure to determine what your goals are and the objectives you are working towards.  When making your plan, always decide on a realistic budget and stick to it. This budget will determine what you can and cannot do throughout your public relations campaign.
  2. Trial and error: Public relations is a process that takes time to perfect. Don’t be afraid to move forward with your plan and make your presence known in various arenas with  different tools. This includes, but is not limited to, email marketing, social media, print and search engine optimization. Try using these tools and don’t be afraid to try again if at first you don’t succeed. There is always an opportunity to rebuild and try something a second or third time if your efforts fall short.
  3. Keep a focus on localities: With any small business it is essential to understand your local reach. Become listed on Google Places, create a blog, build a following on check-in sites like Foursquare and Yelp, and continue to seek out ways to execute local branding and marketing efforts while creating positive buzz among your community. After all, small business is heavily rooted by the communities that ground them.
