You may also be considering implementing elements of the guerilla marketing approach into your marketing program. This workshop builds on these approaches, and provides you with a step-by-step guide to preparing a formal marketing plan. Depending on the nature and size of your business, your marketing plan could be complex and detailed, or very simple and straightforward. But unless you have a formal marketing plan of some kind, it will be very difficult for you to implement a marketing strategy that is both consistent and focused.
