Every year, close to a million new businesses start up in North America and most of them fail within the first year because they failed to put together comprehensive business marketing plans. I encourage anyone with the courage to start their own business to plow forward and dismiss the negative dream-stealers who stand in their way. However, I suggest plowing forward in an intelligent, well thought out way.

Every day people decide to start businesses. Business ownership is an attractive idea. People like the thought of financial independence, being their own boss and having creative freedom. People also know that they will always work harder for themselves than they will for a boss. While there are many advantages to owning your own business, it is absolutely crucial that you understand some key things.

Business Marketing Plans Are Critical

Business marketing plans are critical to the success of a company, especially if it's a new company. Simply put, you need a plan, a very detailed plan of action. Putting together a business marketing plan is not an easy process. In fact, it can be very involved and awfully time consuming. It requires time, research, understanding, education, and a whole slew of other things.

For this reason, I have two suggestions for aspiring business owners. Before you put together your marketing plans, decide if you want to write the plan or if you want another company that specializes in writing business marketing plans to write the plan. The former requires a great deal of time and research, and the latter requires identifying the right company. What do you want to spend your time doing?
