Where to Get Marketing Planning Information

Before you begin planning a new marketing communications activity or campaign, you will need to: 1) build a market profile that includes your customer or prospect "universe," and 2) define your media options. Failing to clearly define your target markets will limit your opportunities for successfully delivering your marketing messages to your key audiences. Following is a closer look at potential data sources:

Business-to-Consumer

  • Dun & Bradstreet at www.zapdata.com - find data counts by geography or demographics
  • Local Chambers of Commerce

Media Options
