Strategic planning involves research into markets and potential audiences to gain an understanding of who and what might interest a particular group of people you want to reach. We dig deep to gain an understanding of the business or project to define goals for a marketing or communications plan. Strategic planning involves both early research, as well as evaluation and measurement of results. Strategic planning might also involve facilitation, bringing potential customers together to measure how a proposed message might fit your market.
