Why Do You Need a Solid Strategy?
On-the-fly marketing does not work. Full stop.

If you look at the most successful businesses on the planet, you'll find a common thread. They didn't get their success by accident.

* Ability to divide the work into small manageable tasks and assign specific duties to each employee.
* Your competitors have a strategy, so if you don't have a clear road map of where you want to be and how you'll get there, you'll get left in the dust.
* It helps you determine your target markets and better understand your customers.
* Without a clear plan, you will not be able to use your resources efficiently.
* Having a solid strategy that always reminds your customers about you being there is crucial. And helps your business appear more professional.
