Laura, This comes very handy when one is planning his marketing plans, and that too when the new year is just round the bend!

Though some of the templates do not suit individual needs, the templates may be changed by the user accordingly.

Many thanks to you Laura!

This is what I have been looking for. I am very ignorant when it comes to putting together a marketing plan because I have so many ideas, I don’t know where to put my priorities. A great customer newsletter should be part of your marketing plan, however

Great Piece of information about Marketing calendar. In order for a marketing calendar to be effective it should be segregated into activities that complement each other to achieve the requested objective. Also the calendar should be ready by the end of the third quarter of the year to allow you focusing on execution.
