We Have Great Answers

Normally the process of conducting a through market research, devising a go-to-market strategy and preparing a business plan would take between 2- 3 months.

Basically a marketing plan is a part of a business plan.

However, typically business plans are prepared for the purpose of obtaining funding from investors or governmental programs – to show them how profitable the business would be ,while our strategic and marketing plan is primarily used for internal reasons, it is more in depth and meant to crack the way to introduce a new or existing product to new global markets.

This is not part of our services; however, we do help our customers to prepare for investor meetings and project an image of an up and coming global and professional player, with a clear strategy and go-to-market plan.
