Growth Marketing Plan Template
This proposal contains recommendations for achieving sustainable and measurable growth of your brand. The goal of this growth marketing plan is to give you a snapshot of the key strategic activities required for finding, attracting, converting, retaining, and growing your customers into loyal brand advocates and admirers.
This growth marketing approach takes several steps beyond the traditional marketing activities, and is based on the so-called “pirate funnel” that goes through the six crucial steps aimed at promoting and strengthening your brand among your customers. The six steps are Awareness, Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Revenue, Referral, which constitutes the AAARRR “pirate funnel” model for marketing growth.
Another related model that explains growth marketing activities is called the “Hockey Stick,” starting with the Tinkering Stage at the bottom (testing and analysis), and gradually going through the Blade Years (data-based application of the marketing strategy), then proceeding toward the Growth Inflection Point (when marketing activities start yielding positive results), and ending with the surging growth at the top (when you experience consistent revenue increase from the marketing activities implemented).
Our plan consists of several interconnected stages: Research, KPIs and Metrics of Success, and Promotion Strategy. Each stage is elaborated below in more detail. The proposal concludes with an implementation timeline and pricing for the proposed services.
