    Planning for marketing versus a marketing plan

    I've decided to resurrect my podcast in order to be more relevant to a wider audience, in addition to it being easier and more convenient for me to record a short ten to fifteen minutes podcast on my drive into the office every morning.



    I'm anticipating that it will be a podcast full of tips, anecdotes, gripes, strategies, tactics and techniques that I've used over the years and in my day to day adventures in the world of startups and marketing.



    If you know me then you'll know that I have a number of concurrent projects happening all of the time. The concept of the "lean startup" is not new to me. It's actually called bootstrapping, or, "starting up without any money" - this concept is as old as commerce itself.



    For some reason it's the new rage in the world of technology startups, so I'll refer a bit to that audience but in reality this should be useful for any entrepreneur, small business owner or marketing/business professional making their way in this new digital economy that has developed.



    Episode 1: Planning for marketing versus a marketing plan.



    I cover why a marketing plan written in stone will do you no good at all, especially when you're moving quickly and defining your product or service. I give up a process I've used successfully dozens of times in both the online and offline business worlds.



    Click the play button to get started, and please forgive the noise, I really am driving while I recorded this!

    Setting your digital marketing campaigns into one of three main types will help you maintain your sanity and provide clear goal posts for your team.

    Misunderstood campaign goals can cause a serious headache when the campaign is complete if everyone involved is not on the same page or unclear on the goals.

    Lead generation is a nurturing and growth process, it does not burn resources. Conversion Campaigns can be very effective when care is taken to understand your true Cost Per Acquisition (CPA). Retention Campaigns can catapult your business into the stratosphere.



    In today's Marketing Drive we're talking about why I do The Marketing Drive without expectation of reward, defining the type of campaign you are launching before it is launched and ensuring it fits into your revenue allocation and targeting model.



    In The Marketing Drive Episode 19 we're talking about:



    * Why I do The Marketing Drive (because I  you, that's why).

    * The importance of content creation without expectation of reward.

    * Lead Acquisition Campaign. Goal: generating the lead to get them into your funnel.

    * Conversion Campaign: converting that lead or inbound customer into a "sold customer"

    * Retention, Rebuy, Reactivation: a.k.a the "Care" campaign.
