Marketing strategy

For creating the marketing strategy we need to understand the steps to develop a marketing strategy, define the ‘marketing mix’ and determine the guiding principles underlying the development of a promotion. 

Once the results of the formative research are available, the next step consists of identifying the objectives and developing the marketing strategy. Generally, the marketing strategy has a three to five year horizon and it is supported by annual marketing plans that include a detailed action plan, a schedule, budget and monitoring plan.

The business turnouroud strategy is based on the so-called “four Ps” of marketing or the marketing mix. The four Ps are product, price, promotion and distribution.

Promotion refers to how you speak to the public about your product, price or distribution, and even about target behavior. In many ways, promotion is the glue that holds the marketing mix together. It establishes the link between members of the target audience and behavior, and connects suppliers and consumers. Promotion is also referred to as “communication”.

Marketing strategies of successful startups often combines two approaches to promotion: brand advertising and promotion, and communication for the behavior change. Branding is an effective tool to standardize products, services, ideas, or behaviors and to promote them on a large scale. 

Branding can be used in a variety of ways to promote improved business – it can be to identify a village without open defecation or an approved supplier, or to serve as a unifying element between the different components of a marketing campaign.
