What is Strategic Marketing Planning?
Every CEO and marketing executive periodically faces urgent strategic marketing challenges that can affect the future of the company for many years. Frequently these decisions are made without having an opportunity to study the situation and make the best possible decision. Making spur of the moment strategic decisions reduces the likelihood these decisions are in the best interest of the company.
A better approach is to perform an annual comprehensive review of markets and opportunities, then make long-term strategic decisions without the distractions of day-to-day marketing and sales activities. Daily decisions then fit into the company's overall strategic marketing goals.It's important for a strategic marketing planning process to look at the company from the customer's point of view by asking questions that have longevity, such as:
- What needs or problems cause customers to consider buying from our company?
- What improvements in the customer's personal or business life can we enable or improve?
- Which customer market segments are attracted to our company or products?
- Which customer motivations or values lead people to decide to purchase our products?
- What changes or trends in our customer base are affecting their general interest or attraction to products like ours?
