Uncover key insights about your industry, competitors, and consumers.

1. Perform an industry analysis.

How do consumers and the media discuss and interact with your industry? Industry research can help you identify opportunities to carve out a unique space for your brand and maximize consumer satisfaction, profits, and brand recognition.

2. Conduct a competitor analysis.

How can you set your brand apart and outperform your competitors? Track competitor mentions, identify keywords, analyze consumer sentiment, explore marketing and advertising efforts, and research social media techniques to identify the best and worst parts of your competitors' business strategy—then use the data to create a better one for your brand.

3. Understand customer sentiment.

What do customers think of your brand and your competitors? Pull real consumer feedback directly from online sources, including blogs, social media, podcasts, and forums, to identify sources of positive and negative consumer sentiment for your brand and your competitors.


Create a data-driven, actionable marketing roadmap.

1. Choose your brand messaging.

How should you develop your brand communication strategy? Before you start a marketing campaign, establish clear brand messaging guidelines to create an effective, consistent brand identity. This can include your brand goals, tagline, image, voice, and unique selling proposition (USP.) Review and adapt your messaging strategy as your brand grows.

2. Craft your campaign strategy.

How do you plan a successful marketing campaign? Use your market research to build a framework for your campaign, then get creative and figure out the best ways to connect with and make an impact on your target audience. By the time you're ready to pitch your campaign idea, you should have no problem getting the rest of your team on board.

3. Avoid campaign pitfalls.

How can you ensure your campaign's success? Focus on clear messaging, specific audiences, and the integration of different marketing channels when planning your campaign. Then, follow up with regular benchmarking using established key performance indicators (KPIs).


Use your market research and strategy to achieve your business goals.

1. Review your market research.

How will you use your market research to implement your strategy? We're moving on to implementation, but that doesn't mean you should put away your market research. As you work through your marketing campaigns, refer back to your research regularly to make sure your actions align with your industry reality, business goals, and target audience.

2. Plan an email marketing campaign.

How can you reach customers with email marketing? Use your website to grow your email list and foster direct interactions with your audience. Customize your email templates to reflect your brand messaging and look for ways to use email to consumers through the purchase funnel. Then, track the performance of email campaigns and adapt your strategy based on what gets the best results.

3. Utilize digital advertising.

How can you target new audiences with digital advertising? Use your website analytics to determine how your target audiences are most likely to find your website. Then, using your consumer personas and social media research, create targeted ads designed to resonate with your target audience.
