Marketing plays a vital role in successful business ventures. How well you market you business, along with a few other considerations, will ultimately determine your degree of success or failure. The key element of a successful marketing plan is to know your customers-their likes, dislikes, expectations. By identifying these factors, you can develop a marketing strategy that will allow you to arouse and fulfill their needs.

Identify your customers by their age, sex, income/educational level and residence. At first, target only those customers who are more likely to purchase your product or service. As your customer base expands, you may need to consider modifying the marketing plan to include other customers.

Develop a marketing plan for your business by answering these questions. (Potential franchise owners will have to use the marketing strategy the franchisor has developed.) Your marketing plan should be included in your Project and contain answers to the questions outlined below.
• Who are your customers? Define your target market(s).
• Are your markets growing? Steady? Declining?
• Is your market share growing? Steady? Declining?
• If a franchise, how is your market segmented?
• Are your markets large enough to expand?
• How will you attract, hold, increase your market share? If a franchise, will the franchiser provide assistance in this area? Based on the franchiser’s strategy? How will you promote your sales?
• What pricing strategy have you devised?
