Marketing plan

This refers to the documentation of the activities required to meet the organisation’s business and marketing strategy within a defined timescale.

Working from the organisation’s strategic vision and objectives, the marketing plan identifies customer needs (typically through market research, this may be for existing or potential customers) and how the organisation can meet them. It includes action plans, budgets and sales forecasts.

The marketing plan is a term normally found in strategic management.
