All businesses start with the intention of becoming successful, and most of those businesses start with a product or service that could get them there, but after a few years, many of those same businesses struggle to find success.

Elements of a marketing plan

Goal planning

Marketing budget planning

Online marketing, including search and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
