From Open Forum: Mind maps are commonly used for brain­storming and visu­al­izing complex topics so that you can explain them clearly to others. Creating a mind map for your marketing plan not only gives you a place for all those ideas, it creates a logical struc­ture for how you’ll achieve your goal. This logical struc­ture, in turn, helps you make deci­sions about oppor­tu­ni­ties on the fly. · Go to Create a visual marketing plan using a mind map →
