That marketing strategy determines how they will introduce themselves to new customers, and build loyal customers.
The amount of research and planning can be daunting, and take your focus far away from current important daily activities. It make also be that you don’t have anyone in your company that you want to take away from their current work, to lead this kind of preparation work. It can be inciting to want to set a few ideas in place and rely on previous experience to guide you to success. This can be a costly mistake.
Not having a strong idea of what your going to do inside a new market is like driving around a new city without a map. Sure, you make know how to drive, and have lots of experience, but that wont do you any good if you turn the wrong way down a one way street. Mistakes in a new market can be so costly that they end your adventure far sooner than your experience could compensate for.
Getting into a new market requires a good plan. Make one that counts, and approach your project with a clear road map. The time you spend investing in planning and making a sound strategy, the less money you will waste on costly mistakes.
