The purpose of the marketing plan is to define your market by identifying your customers and competitors, to outline a strategy for attracting and keeping customers and to identify and anticipate change. The marketing plan should be thought of as a reference tool for you, the business owner. Keep in mind, the marketing plan is a guideline and should be revised along with your business plan.

It can be incorporated into the business plan where the marketing discussion goes. It is just a little more in-depth than a traditional business plan marketing discussion.
