I’ve been going through a lot of changes lately on both the business and the personal levels. Well, all of us are going through a lot of changes.
There are some similarities between creating a marketing plan and a sales enablement plan. The bottom line is a certain kind of element, or what I call “the skeleton” of the plans stays the same. So let’s talk about this a little bit more.
I shared that it’s important to update your marketing plan when the economy is opening up. This time around, it’s important to re-evaluate your customer’s behavior changes, understand what behavior changes are permanent, and how they affect customers’ buying decisions and the usage of your products and services. Use that insight to update your buyer personas.
To help marketers think strategically, I created the “think strategically” series for my monthly webinars from May to August. The whole four months!

I’m doing something different for this episode in light of the effect of the coronavirus pandemic in our industry. Today, I’m sharing an excerpt from a webinar I did on March 18, focused on marketing in times of uncertainty. I teamed up with Ryan Lewis, a good friend of mine at Bonfire Marketing. At the end of today’s episode, I will have details on what else you can learn in the webinar and how to watch it.
