The Ultimate 2020 Marketing Planning Kit

Guides, templates, and how-tos that will help you dominate your 2020 sales & marketing plan.

Marketing is Hard. Leighton Interactive Makes it Easier.

We are data-driven like there’s no tomorrow. One stat that has been particularly sticky for me once I read it? Via CoSchedule, “Marketers with a documented strategy are 313% more likely to report success.” Strategy. How does that word make you feel? Stressed? Flustered? Incapable? Pressured? Or have you embodied it — instead feeling inspired, motivated, capable, crushable? For a lot of marketers, strategy feels … unattainable or ambiguous. What does it even mean? Where do I even start?

Well, you can start right here by downloading our all-in-one massive marketing kit. Don’t worry; massive doesn’t mean overwhelming. We included everything necessary to craft your own marketing strategy no matter your role or size of company. Everything is scalable, and everything is pretty clearly laid out within. If you need some help working through these resources, we’d love to chat. You can get in touch with our new business team.

Ready to check it out? Here’s the teaser list:

  • Business Goals & Budgets
  • ID’ing your Target Market & Persona(s)
  • Mapping the Buyer’s Journey
  • Campaign Tactics (aka, the work)
  • Templates for Content, Social, & SEO
  • Distribution & PR 
  • Can’t Miss Tools We Love the Most!
  • Benchmarking 101 — Why You NEED It

Get the kit and get strategic!
