We know that marketing is often trial and error as we continue to learn about our targeted audience, but there are things you can do to increase the success rate. Here is a market planning checklist that will help.

  • ____Are your benefits clear? Have you described them clearly in your marketing message to your targeted market?

  • ____Have you created a pricing schedule? What kind of discounts or specials will you offer and who will you offer them to?
