Thinking ahead for your 2019 marketing now can save you a lot of aggravation in January and give you a great start to generating leads and increasing income in the new year.
Too often businesses wait until the last minute to start planning for the new year. We can't tell you how many times, we get panic emails the week between Christmas and the New Year with
I need a new website or I meant to get my email marketing program going for the new year - that's next week - can you help?
Sure, we can help, but you know it won't happen for the first week of January unless you start thinking about it now.
So, first -- take a look at your sales and marketing efforts this year - are they as expected? Could you have done better? Did you implement all your marketing ideas? Chances are pretty good you did not... and of course, you can always do better. Each year businesses set the standard higher than the year before. For this to work, however you need a plan!
Planning Ahead for Your 2019 Marketing
First, to know where you are going, you need to take a look at where you are now and what you have done this year. Did you have a written plan for 2018? Did you follow it? Or did you wing it? Did you set goals, did you look at the results - so many questions --- where do you even start?
No contractor will build a house without a blue print. Why would you run your business without one?
To help you move forward, we've created a document to start you on your way to your 2019 marketing. It will force you to document what you did this year, and start you thinking of your plan for next year. If you start thinking about it now, there is a better chance you will move forward before January 1st -- especially when you see the numbers. Often that is the only motivation you need.

We get it -- running a business is non-stop, but always remember -- without a plan, you're planning to fail. Even the simplest of plans is better than no plan at all. Too many businesses just wing it! Hopefully this year that won't be you!
