In addition, it keeps you and your team on the same page when it comes to direction.It Keeps You Focused – With all of the new marketing tools and technologies available, a marketing plan can prevent you from getting distracted and losing sight of your business goals. The marketing plan will act as a reference guide, so you don’t waste time on the things that don’t support business growth.
