My Sample Marketing Plan
Puts Sales And Finance On Your Side

If you are a Chief Marketing Officer at a $500M B2B global enterprise or bigger, you already know that you have only 18 months to prove your mettle to Sales and Finance. That's average tenure for a CMO today...and dropping.

If Sales Hates You...

On the one hand, Sales is only too glad to throw you under the bus for your team's failure to convey the right message to the right people at the right time everywhere in the world.

That's why they're claiming that you flood the Sales force with useless sales leads.

The reps complain that they have to go out and get the deals with little to no help from you. These folks get paid on deals that they forecast to close this quarter not in 6 months.

Is Sales calling you friend?

If Finance Hates You...

On the other hand, you have Finance. These folks only care about the numbers. They crunch them and, next thing you know, they're asking you for a return on marketing investment, else here comes a budget cut. And then another. And then another.

Well, you've cut your campaigns funding to the bone. Headcount is next. Yeah, cost containment and operational effectiveness are crucial to the survival of your operation.

But, is Finance calling you friend?

Who Loves You, Baby?

If neither Finance nor Sales is calling you their friend, then you're toast.

Do better than a Sample Marketing Plan here!Can you see why as a senior marketer you need a marketing strategy consultant instead of some run of the mill sample marketing plan?

Yes. I've heard it before. A good consultants is unaffordable.

Not if he's virtual. Being virtual reduces your expense but not the consultant's impact on your operation, if he knows what he's doing.

On the other hand, a sample marketing plan may be free. But you get your money's worth.

I Can Help You Get Sales And Finance To Fall In Love With You. Try Me.

Consider that anybody like you can adopt best practices. Anyone like you can follow a cookie-cutter approach to setting a marketing house in order. But does that give you the edge? Does it transform you into a true partner with Sales and Finance?

You gain a comparative advantage by specializing in improving strategic areas in your operation (do you know what they are?) and not by merely following the bustle of the herd.

Social media? Marketing automation? Content management? What good is all this if you don't yet know how to structure your operation and organize for resilience and delivery of better opportunities to Sales and verifiable ROI to Finance.

This also means that you will need customized marketing solutions not a sample marketing plan to get the edge in today's globally competitive landscape.

In short, you need a custom-made plan to keep Marketing from getting blamed for wasting Sales' time and Finance's money.

As your guide I can help you build the business case and execution strategy for optimizing and even outsourcing certain marketing operations to streamline workflow process, marketing productivity, intelligence and cost reduction. This is what gives you the edge.
