The Basics: What is a Marketing Budget?
Why Do You Need a Marketing Budget?
- It Sets Clear Goals: Your budget defines your marketing goals and helps you allocate resources accordingly. It’s like plotting the destinations you want to visit on your road trip.
- Resource Management: It ensures you’re not spending all your marketing funds on a single billboard or one social media ad. Just like on a road trip, you don’t want to blow all your money on the first day.
- Measuring Success: A budget provides a benchmark for measuring the effectiveness of your marketing efforts. Did you reach the destination you planned for? Your budget can tell you.
