Did you know...
Less than 50% of Businesses
Have a Documented Marketing Plan?

It seems crazy to think about this now, but do you remember life before GPS, cell phones or even Map Quest? When you wanted to get from point A to point B, you had to take out a map and figure out the best path. Even AAA used to help people plan travel routes so they could maximize their time.

The directions from friends and family could get interesting from time to time. Take the 3rd left after the green house with the wind chimes, then go over a creek and keep driving for another few minutes til you will see the horse farm. Turn there. There could have been street names, but the descriptions were much more interesting to pay attention to in the story.

In today's environment, you probably never think about how to get from A to B. You pull out your phone that is fully integrated with Google Maps, Waze and every other traffic navigating companion you could imagine. It's fast, easy to use and gives you the confidence to know where you are going.

According to research from the Small Business Administration, about half of all establishments survive five years or longer. According to Bradley University, their research indicates 70% to 80% of new businesses fail within their first year and of those who survive the first year, half will fail within the next four years.

According to Dun & Bradstreet, the primary cause for business failure is lack of planning. Less than 50% of businesses have a documented plan. Failing to plan is almost the same as planning to fail.

The Growth Triad

As part of DigitalMarketer, we help our clients implement the growth triad with the goal of providing a formula and framework for predictable growth. The Growth triad is made up of the documented journey, actionable metrics and tools and tactics. 

Most companies may have 1 or 2 of these going for them. Most do not have all 3. When you only have 2 working, you can see where the overlap happens.

The overlap may be:

Stuck in the Mud: You know where you’re going, but you don’t have the tools or abilities to get there.

Bull in a China Shop: Lots of activity…not clear on what’s working.

One Hit Wonder: Tactics work until they don’t…no unified framework for predictable growth.

Where does your business fall in this framework?
