Fort Wayne, IN, September 03, 2008 --( Joe Dager, owner of Business901 in Fort Wayne, IN has just launched a new website, The site, offers visitors a platform to discuss marketing plans and to follow certain conversations and blog post that interest them. It is very target niche to the development of a Nonprofit Marketing Plan and coincides with the release of Marketing Plan Pro powered by Duct Tape Marketing®. The success of sites such as Smaller Indiana also built on a Ning platform, offers an easy to use experience for visitors and categorized content to improve visibility to search engines. The content of the new site will be user driven and allow members to visit, comment and add their own content.

Why a new website Dager was asked; “Our Nonprofit Blog, could not be made specific enough. We then developed a Marketing Plan Site but ultimately it did not serve the purpose we were after... We also realized we could not maintain another blog and put enough fresh content on it. As a result, we created an open source platform, so that we could participate in the conversations and add information when necessary but so could everyone else. It will be an independent site and one that organizations and people can use as a resource.”

Dager, an authorized Duct Tape Marketing coach is well versed in blogs and received his training from small business blogger John Jantsch, the author of Duct Tape Marketing. His development of the Duct Tape Marketing system as part of his Connect with Permission Program gave him the experience of working with nonprofits. Now, since the basis of Marketing Plan Pro is the DTM system it was just a natural extension of both products.

The Duct Tape Marketing system allows you to create and build your very own marketing system complimented by a coaching system that has proven effective with small businesses for over 20 years. The system is perfect for those who already own a business, but want to make it soar. This system will help manufacturers build the perfect business establishing a proven marketing system to their growing company. "Why reinvent the wheel? Take a proven process, a trained coach and run with it.”

The latest release of Marketing Plan Pro by Palo Alto Software has taken the award-winning Duct Tape Marketing methodology authored by John Jantsch and embedded it into Marketing Plan Pro–creating a product that will guide users through the process of creating a powerful marketing action plan that will help them understand how marketing and advertising can help successfully grow their businesses.

Tim Berry founder of Palo Alto Software said in his blog, “We have come to believe that this kind of business, the expert-in-a-box (sort of) that we've built with Business Plan Pro, needs authorship. Our product development team does the code, and the interface, so they're the ones who really build the software (and it's a team, in fact the largest team in our company). No one individual could do that. But the core content, the idea of it, the main concepts take living with, and working with, those elements come out best when there's an expert as author. As John is with Marketing.”
