BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
Start-Up Development and Planning: Formation of mission, vision, name, brochures and proposals
Our start up entrepreneurs, small and mid-sized clients often require assistance to develop appropriate marketing materials to help their marketing and selling efforts. This may be the development of catch phrases, tag lines for launches, simple flyers, more robust brochures, trade show handouts, catalog pages, or presentations.
Each of the elements you choose for your business is dependent on what you need to reach your target audience. You get to pick and choose your options, selecting those that best suit your requirements. There is no need to do it all at once. We can start by partnering with ODEM Creative Media to offer you a simple but professional logo, business card, and brochure and add other elements, as needed.

Strategic and Tactical Planning
The development of well thought through strategy and tactics for a company’s marketing plan is part of the critical planning process. Strategy and tactics are intimately linked. You cannot have one without the other and both need to be able to be supported by the other. When developing our Strategies and Tactics our plans will encompass these Pertinent Ps: Product, Price, Promotion, Place / distribution, People, Potential, Planning and Profit.
Business and Market Planning
A Business and marketing plan is the key element to growing company sales cohesively. The marketing plan forms the basis for coordinating marketing activities for an organization and limits the ability of plan participants to indicate they weren’t sure what they were supposed to do, when the task were to be completed, and how they were to be completed. A marketing plan, written correctly that includes the proper controls, becomes the centerpiece for all company marketing activities.
Plan Implementation Assistance
Our ODEM Business Consulting consultants have written your marketing plan, now the next step is performing the plan implementation activities. Dependent on the initial agreement with the client we can provide assistance in implementing each element of the plan. We are not the consulting firm that tells a client what to do, but does not know how to do it! We will assist in, guide, oversee, and monitor implementation results in progress to see if a company’s marketing and /or sales personnel are performing required activities as defined and scheduled in the marketing plan.
We will directly assist our clients’ management to develop the tasks outlined in the marketing action plan. Our assistance can be through actual task performance, direct help, telephone discussion and coaching, and actual system development jointly by client and ODEM Business Consulting personnel. We are hands on marketing solutions providers.
Competitive analysis is an area for which most small and mid-sized companies will require consulting assistance. We conduct unbiased evaluations of competitors’ strengths and weaknesses by performing research to determine a variety of critical competitor information. Specific pricing is not typically evaluated because of its subjective nature and that the stated discounts may or may not be accurate, or may vary by end-user or customer.
