The Marketing AUDIT
The Marketing, SEO
and Brand Audit
The Marketing Audit by definition, refers to the comprehensive, systematic, analysis,
evaluation and the interpretation of the business Marketing environment, both internal
and external, its goals, objectives, strategies, and the principles to ascertain the areas
of problems and opportunities. The Marketing Audit also is to recommend a plan of
action to grow the business better than ever.
The Marketing Audit typically has 4 major characteristics:
It should be comprehensive and broad in focus covering the entire Marketing
environment. It should be an objective exercise and independent of the managers
directly involved in making the Marketing decisions of the business.
A good Marketing Audit should be comprehensive, systematic, independent and
conducted with some regularity. (But we won’t discuss that yet). Components to
examine include the external environment, your internal organization and systems,
the overall Marketing Strategies and Tactics and their productivity and functionality.

Marketing Audit Action Points
A Marketing Audit helps Business Owners explore all of the Marketing activities
currently being implemented while evaluating if those activities are successful …
Then you can make informed decisions about how to improve activities or employ
new strategies and tactics to achieve greater success in your Marketing efforts.
The purpose of a Marketing Audit is not to criticize particular activities, but rather
to identify whether there are any working practices that could be more effective …
This Audit typically takes 30-60 days from start to finish, and has many different
variables to it. It’s common to finish near the 30 day mark. Larger businesses
of course will take longer. It comes down to the type of business you are in, your
current Marketing involvement, and if your interest lies with Tactical Marketing
implementation, or Strategic Marketing with growing revenue and profits.
