How to Create an Effective 90-Day Marketing Plan with Cody Butler

Are you lost when it comes to marketing your business effectively? The first step to developing an effective marketing plan is to understand the business you are actually in. You may sell real estate or t-shirts, but your business is actually marketing. We spoke to Cody Butler, who is the author of the 90-Day Marketing Plan to understand how non-marketers can develop and implement a strategy to grow their business.

Most people just start marketing their products or services but don’t invest the time to develop a clear strategy. A clear marketing plan helps to provide a blueprint to help you identify who you help and what they need from you. Understanding this need allows you to develop powerful content and messaging that converts prospects into customers. Ask yourself, how can I provide instant gratification to my audience?

The next step is to develop the “tip of the spear” as Cody defines it. This is a product or lead magnet that allows you to attract the ideal customer for your business. While you may have multiple products or offerings, there should be one that you focus on to bring leads into your database. The messaging around this piece should combine the pleasure of what they want and avoids the pain of what they don’t want.

In this episode, we discuss developing a 90-day marketing plan, understanding your ideal investor, tips to ignite an audience, and creating powerful messaging.
