As a coach, consultant or service-based business owner, one of your biggest quests is to grow a sustainable and profitable business. And the BEST thing that you can do in order to succeed at this quest is to have a plan, but not just any plan, but a M.A.P., Marketing Action Plan.
If you’re familiar with the website and app MapQuest, it helps you to reach your destination by providing you with directions, helps you plan your route and lets you know about hotel deals for your destination.
Well, similar to the MapQuest website and app, having a M.A.P. (Marketing Action Plan) for your business can give you the direction that you need, help you plan out the activity you need to be doing for your business, and can help you figure out the right partnerships you need to be making for your business.
In this post I share how to create a M.A.P. to fulfill your business quest for success in 2018:
Get a Marketing Coach/Consultant/Expert on Your Team
A key part of your business team should be someone who is knowledgeable about marketing , someone who can guide you in your marketing by giving you direction on what you need to be doing to successfully market your business. This could be in the form of a coach, someone who can instruct you specifically on your marketing. It could also be in the form of a consultant, someone who can advise you specifically on your marketing, or an expert, someone who specializes in marketing and you can learn from.
Whether you decide to work directly with a coach, consultant or marketing expert is up to you, but having one on your team can make a world of difference for your business.
Create a Marketing Plan
Writing down your goals, objectives and planning your activity will be the key to your success. Some people get intimidated or feel overwhelmed when it comes to creating a Marketing Plan, but creating a Marketing Plan can be as simple as answering questions about your business, your ideal audience, your competition, and the marketplace, and then deciding how you are going to make your business stand out in the marketplace, so you can reach your ideal audience and eliminate your competition.

Take Marketing Action
The final step is to take action, but not just any action, but massive marketing action. Massive marketing action includes staying consistent with doing the things on your plan, it includes doing things that are outside of your comfort zone, it includes doing things you’ve never done before, and it includes improving on the things that worked in the past so you can get even better results in the new year. Are you prepared to take massive marketing action in 2018?
