A marketing plan is essential for tracking goals & results.
Your marketing plan will also provide structure & help you with design.

Make sure you know what materials you need before you start looking.
In regard to Facebook fans, you must research & identify your target audience.
If the definition is too vague, then just like choosing the wrong materials for your house, you’ll find the structure of your page begin to weaken & the building won’t last.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Use Facebook graph search to find interests of your target audience & tailor your ads accordingly
- Target ads to fans of businesses that are in your industry
- Create custom ads based on your email or newsletter list

- Boost your Facebook posts

Expressing your personality is a great way for your business to build relationships & open dialogue with fans.

Branding goes way beyond your logo. Your brand is the way your customers perceive you.
Branding extends to your website, your voice & tone, the way you conduct business & your interactions with fans. These are what help your customers form opinions about your business.
