3 Steps To A Successful
Marketing Plan
  • STEP 1 A prioritized list of achievable goals
  • Recommend no more than two to five per
    facility/activity
  • Goals must be obtainable, realistic and
    measurable
  • EXAMPLE Increase snack bar sales by 2
  • Activity Managers establish goals
  • Marketing is an active partner
  • It must be a TEAM EFFORT!

13
3 Steps To A Successful
Marketing Plan
  • STEP 2 Develop a course of action
  • How do you intend to get there
  • What steps are necessary to achieve this goal
  • EXAMPLE
  • Develop specially priced Daily Specialscreate a
    sense of value
  • Once each month for first three months,
    conduct sample tastings at various facilities (HQ
    building, personnel center etc.)

14
3 Steps To A Successful
Marketing Plan
  • EXAMPLE (continued)
  • Point of sale displays and a weekday special
  • dangler placed at beginning of serving
  • line/order area
  • Print testimonials in base paper/Services
  • insert/specially prepared flyers/mini-posters
  • featuring comments from key base personnel

15
3 Steps To A Successful
Marketing Plan
  • STEP 3 Establish a timeline and measurement
    scale to track progress adjust as required
  • EXAMPLE
  • Conduct a quarterly review of financial
    statement and daily business worksheets.
    Allowing for initial promotional efforts, sales
    trend should show modest improvement after first
    30-45 days. If at 2nd Qtr review, a sales
    increase has not been established, review current
    course of action and adjust

16
Ingredients for Success
  • Activity Managers are in the best position to
    determine realistic goals
  •    Step One of the marketing plan must be
    initially developed by the appropriate activity
    manager and then worked jointly with marketing
  • It is ASSUMED that activity managers know their
    operations and have considered basic SWOT
    (Strengths/ Weaknesses/ Opportunities/ Threats)
    philosophy in the development of prioritized goals

17
Ingredients for Success
  • If not, activity managers should consult base
    marketing manager regarding PRISM, Customer
    Feedback Assessments and other locally developed
    surveys to better determine proper positioning
  • Other factors to be considered when developing a
    marketing plan include mission requirements,
    financial indicators, budgeting constraints and
    staffing
  • Assuming youve done your homework and have
    considered all of these factors, its time to set
    your goals

18
Ingredients for Success
  •   Baby Steps In the past, marketing plans tended
    to be merely a laundry list of Wanna Do items.
    Equally as bad is an overwhelming list that
    usually means some effort may be put towards some
    things, but most will simply be moved to next
    years list. There is a better wayBaby Steps
  • Select no more than 2 to 5 focus areas and
    prioritize them
  • Set realistic and obtainable goals for each

If you can make 2 to 5 real improvements each
yearin each Activity CenterAWESOME!
19
Ingredients for Success
  • Team Effort Activity Managers should work with
    staff and the marketing department to develop a
    strategy for achieving goals. All too often
    existing staff members are not included in
    brainstorming including them gives them a sense
    of worth and ownership with the program

20
Ingredients for Success
  • Marketing Activity Manager
  •      For each goal you should have a clear
    course of action and a method to measure your
    progress
  •    Outline various elements to be used in
    achieving each goal. Ensure they can be
    accomplished (consider availability of funding,
    staffing and other required resources)
  • Plot your course. On a 12-month map, indicate
    your projected status at the 3, 6, 9 and 12-month
    point FOLLOW UP!

21
Ingredients for Success
  • Circle The Wagons At the root of success is the
    buy-in and support from Services leadership. A
    quarterly meeting in which activity managers
    brief their progress is very beneficial. This
    meeting helps ensure all involved maintain focus
    and have opportunity to adjust quarterly if
    necessary
  •  
  • Simply stated, PLANNING is everything. If every
    activity can show improvement in 2 to 5 areas
    each yearsuccess will take care of itself.
