The marketing plan should include traditional and e-marketing.  The cost of implementing your business plan should not cost you an arm and a leg.  It should be proportional to your business size, volume and growth potential.  This may include print advertising, radio, television, cable television and mass mailings.  Your marking plan should include the development of a website.

Company owners should be honest with themselves and create a mission for the company. A mission statement should be kept close and followed. This way you can create a solution before the problem becomes insurmountable. Surround yourself with trusted advisors such as bankers, CPAs and attorneys.
