Course Description

Most owners of small and growing businesses know they need Marketing Plans. That doesn’t mean they have them, however. “Easy Market Planning” diffuses the three most popular misconceptions about market planning: “market planning is expensive”; marketing takes a long, uninterrupted block of time”; and “marketing takes forever to work’ (we need sales, not marketing, Dummy!).

“Easy Market Planning” takes all the stress out of preparing a Marketing Plan by guiding a business owner (or executive) step by step to a simple, brief marketing guide that will become a road map for one’s company.

What are the requirements?

  • An eagerness to prepare a Marketing Plan
  • A willingness to perceive marketing and market planning differently from all they’ve read/heard/learned in the past
  • A priority to take the time to address market planning

What am I going to get from this course?

  • By the end of this course, you will be able to remove the intimidation from Market Planning;
  • start students with the introspective process of where they are now and why, rather than getting right to “All right, Folks: how much do we have to spend, and where are we going to spend it?” (They’re already in business, so they’re doing many things right.)
  • take students through the thought process of how they’ve marketed to date; what has worked better, and what marketing has been less effective?
  • discourage self-criticism about recent marketing activities; marketing is a fun, evolutionary learning process;
  • understand and appreciate that, in marketing, it’s not what you spend, but how you spend it;
  • help students understand how marketing is tied to relationships;
  • motivate attendees to prepare their own simple Marketing Plans.

Who is the target audience?

  • Owners of small and growing businesses
  • Owners who have been meaning to prepare a Marketing Plan for the past five years
  • Owners who tend to put marketing on the back burner, because they don’t know where to begin
  • Owners who are intimidated by marketing
  • Owners who consider marketing a necessary evil
  • Owners who have a Marketing Plan, but know it needs tweaking
  • Owners who want to confirm the merit of their already prepared Marketing Plan
  • Marketing Directors, Sales Directors, Graphic Designers, Website Designers, Public Relations

Section 1: Easy Market Planning Introduction

Here is the introduction to "Easy Market Planning." You know, business owners know they need Marketing Plans, but that doesn't mean they have them. We encourage you to watch and learn how easy and rewarding Market Planning can be. Be sure to download the e-workbook that accompanies this course.

Section 2: Overview

Here is an overview of the six steps to your Marketing Plan.

Section 3: Diagnosis

This is Part 1 of the Diagnosis. The Diagnosis is the introspective part of the Marketing Plan, not to be ignored.


Here we continue to address the various issues in the Diagnosis.

Section 4: Prognosis

Based on what you've written in your Diagnosis, you'll be able to answer the key question of the Prognosis.

Section 5: Goals and Objectives

Are you ready? Here's how to set your Goals.


Now you're midway through your Marketing Plan. Here comes the real action!

Section 6: Strategies

You'll hear me say that it's not how many Strategies you select, it's how many you complete. Please take this warning to heart.


Are you overwhelmed by the strategies you wish to include? Limit yourself to three, maybe four. You can always add others later.

Section 7: Tactics and Control

Here comes the nitty-gritty of your Marketing Plan, the strategic back-up.


It's three months since you wrote your Marketing Plan. How well did you achieve your Goals?

Instructor Biography

Adrienne Zoble, Marketing Consultant and Speaker

My favorite saying is "It's not what you spend in marketing; it's how you spend it." We put BUSINESS OWNERS AND EXECUTIVES on the paths toward GREATER REFERRALS AND ADDITIONAL BUSINESS from existing clients/customers, i.e., marketing smart instead of marketing hard.

I specialize in EFFECTIVE, YET INEXPENSIVE (IF NOT FREE)MARKETING for PRICE-CONSCIOUS CLIENTS reluctant to spend money on marketing. We look at the entire picture, rather than home in on an isolated strategy that is not given enough time to be successful.

I speak and consult nationally and have spoken in four other countries.
