Top 3 Areas Marketers Plan to Raise Their Budgets

72% E-Mail Marketing
44% Search Marketing
35% Advertising

Larson note: Well this is what the big guys, the marketing pros are going. How about you.

In a quick review of the Larson Marketing Plan for 2009 we see ourselves putting together a more comprehensive Web Site and thus a better SEO plan. We see ourselves going deeper and harder into out blog initiative. We see a continuing presence in Social Media Marketing (because that is where our customers are). We see continued presence in using email to get our message though to previously contacted customers and prosects and we see and expanded use of snail mail to push out contact into qualified prospects.

Now I am NOT saying you should be doing what we are doing. What is right for us might not be right of you. You and your business are unique. Use those unique YOU qualities to propel your business forward.

So, how about you? Where does your 2009 marketing plan sit? YOU do have one right? If not it’s not too late to create it. Might I suggest the kind of planning we use here at Larson’s which entail a 3 month, 6 month, 1 year and 5 year plan? Doing this we can keep on top of new trends as they emerge yet know where we are heading. The key is to not become enthralled with your plan it is a living, breathing, growing, ever changing document for you.

Not up to the task, call us; we can map out your future planning for you.
