PHASE 5: BUDGET PLANNING

Allocate your marketing budget to the accounts with the most revenue potential and the highest propensity to spend.

 

Underfund marketing and you will constrain revenue growth. Overfund marketing and your profits will suffer. Peanut butter spread a marketing budget across all segments, accounts and buyers and you will run out of money quickly without showing results. Revenue growth is maximized with an objective-based budget and the precise allocation of all marketing dollars. This enables your company to focus on strategies and activities that will maximize your Return on Marketing Investment (ROMI).
