What is a SWOT Analysis?
SWOT is the analysis that describes your company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. As a result of this business analysis, you can see where your company stands among its competitors. Since SWOT involves defining its four elements, businesses often use a square model divided into four equal parts. In particular, this model measures what a company can and cannot do, along with its potential opportunities and threats.
First, strengths describe what your company excels in and why it stands out among other brands. Secondly, weaknesses are internal factors that prevent your company from performing at its best. Thirdly, opportunities refer to external factors that can give your company an edge over the competition. So finally, threats are internal or external factors that can harm your business.
Why do you need a SWOT analysis in your marketing plan?
Your overall strategy will involve writing a SWOT analysis. Besides, it can help you create financial and non-financial objectives along with strategies to achieve them. Here are some benefits that come with using SWOT in your marketing plan.
You can use resources efficiently
Your company’s capital, people, and funds are limited. That’s why identifying your strengths will help you use these resources in such a way that will help your company increase its bottom line. Hence, you can also find the areas where your business performs better than your competitors.
Rival brands are not the only threat to your business. In fact, any risk outside of your control can have a negative impact on your company. Analyze possible threats, both inside and outside of your business. Stay informed and make time for plans on how to act in case things don’t go as planned. This way, regardless of what happens, you will know what to do
To improve operations, you have to identify and analyze your company’s weaknesses. Find weak areas in your business process and think of solutions to make it more efficient. Also, try to find out where your product or service ranks in your niche, see what and how others sell and how you could do it better.
Find new opportunities
If you want your business to grow, keep your eyes and ears open. Sometimes new opportunities can come from where you least expect them. New target audience, products, distribution and marketing channels – all of these can help your company grow.
