And, remember this is a planning tool and a way for you to collect, organize and plan all of your content and marketing communications efforts. It's not necessary to complete each section, but it's a far more helpful tool to you, your marketing and sales teams, and management if you do. Also, this tool is intended for use by mid size to Fortune 1000 businesses or smaller businesses that have very large marketing and media budgets with a large amount of marketing communications activities to plan and keep track of. A version of this tool was used by a large division of IBM to successfully plan and manage content and marketing campaigns.
