What do you include in your sales and marketing plan?

Do I hear you groaning already?  So many creative inventors just cringe when they hear the words sales and marketing, even though you know deep deep deep down that this is the entire backbone of your survival…….right?  I have been right there with you sister…..I had the hugest-most-gigantic resistance for many years until I learned how to do it…….really learned…….not just going through the motions, but really understanding WHY it is important, and HOW to communicate with my target market.   Learning how to find your target market, engage them, keep up communication, and deliver what they want to buy is the name of the game! 

I reached out to my team of Entreprenette Experts to get you their best tips on how to grow your business!

Of course feel free to share your tips too!

    Wow, lots of good comments. I like this format–some of the answers, yeah, they felt irrelevant to me or were things I hear everywhere, but then the next answer, BAM it’d be a big eye opener. I loved 31… variation on offering essential information, which I firmly believe in, but I’d never heard of help a reporter before. Thank you!

    What a great read with my morning cup o’ java! I’ll be back tomorrow to check out some of the contributors’ websites.

  • I agree with the cold calling, I hate when i get pushy sales calls.

    I too dread cold-calling as well. Number 30 is a nice point!
