Marketing Plans:

With more than 25 years in the direct marketing industry, it’s easy for me to fine tune marketing plans.  I can see a hole in your marketing plan from your driveway.  If you have a marketing plan I can show you how to strengthen it, where it works, and where it doesn’t work.

I also write marketing and promotional plans from scratch.  I obsess about writing the effective “promotional” part of marketing plans.

Full marketing plans often contain financials and are usually written as a pitch for funding; but aren’t usually helpful for real marketing purposes.  As best as I can figure out, you can predict anything… but the future.

Dobkin’s specialty is the promotional section of these plans: strategies of how and where to sell products and services, where to advertise within those markets, researching and figuring out what your most effective sales avenues are; media and magazine analysis, cost analysis, media and direct mail testing — and a realistic look at probable results of the plan along with interpretation and analysis of the initial data and the early results.

Jeffrey Dobkin

I define the markets, and show firms where to find the easiest and fastest sales first, how to reach purchasers most efficiently and at the least cost.  I let firms know what they are doing right (effective marketing), and what they are doing wrong (ineffective or over-cost marketing). I demonstrate how to increase their successes and how to correct failing or expensive mistakes.  Finally, I show how to test and measure response so marketing becomes more effective over time.

OK, so now you kinda’ know what I do, and the question remains… What can I do for you?
