  • Planning for integrated marketing communications and digital marketing
  • Developing multichannel strategy

  • Marketing effectiveness and accountability

Marketing Plans is designed as a tool and a user-friendly learning, resource. Every point illustrated by powerful practical examples and made actionable through simple, step-by-step templates and exercises.

The book is established as essential reading for all serious professional marketers and students of marketing, from undergraduate and postgraduate to professional courses for bodies such as CIM. Above all it provides a practical, hands-on guide to implementing every single concept included in the text.

"It is clearly and powerfully written and is probably the best book on the theory and practice of marketing planning ever written. It is a best-seller in Europe and I strongly recommend the book to anyone with an interest in marketing planning."
-Warren J. Keegan, Professor of International Business and Marketing Director, Institute for Global Business Strategy, Pace University, New York

"I am extremely impressed by the step lucidity of what is presented."
-Dr D. H. Eaton, North Carolina University

"A book reaching the quantities sold of Marketing Plans must be a book that is really used. It is not difficult to see why. Malcolm McDonald writes about what to do in marketing and how to do it. Unlike many academic marketing writers, he will never let you forget that marketing ends with -ing."
-Kenneth Simmonds, Professor of Marketing and International Business, London Business School

"Malcolm McDonald is clearly one of the most respected Professors of Marketing in Europe and the author of a number of outstanding books. The fact that Marketing Plans has been such a massive seller offers testimony of this. McDonald writes with clarity and insight that is becoming increasingly rare today. It is powerful, up to date and has proved that it works. I recommend it to you!"
-John D. Ryans, Jr, Bridgestone Professor of International and Professor of International Marketing, Kent State University, Ohio

He is now Emeritus Professor at Cranfield University School of Management where, until recently, he was Professor of Marketing and Deputy Director. Formerly Marketing Director of Canada Dry, he is Chairman of six companies and works with many of the operating boards of the world''s biggest multinationals on every continent. He is the author of over 40 books, many of which have been translated into several foreign languages and has published hundreds of articles and papers. Although retiring from his teaching role, Malcolm continues to research and teach at Cranfield and other universities around the world and to promote himself via speaking engagements, visiting lectures, and consultancy. He is determined to keep this, his most revered publication, alive and kicking. He has thought long and hard about a succession plan for the book and has invited Professor Hugh Davies, also of Cranfield University School of Management, to assist him in the current update, with a view to Hugh taking the reigns of the book''s development into the future.
