End of Year SUCCESS TIP: Plan. Plan. Plan.

As we get deeper into the holiday season, people have a tendency to take more time off, rest more, go out with friends more etc. But what’s not on the front of everyone’s mind just yet is to start planning for next year.

plan-to-succeedIn many online businesses especially for speakers, sales may slow down for the rest of the year (depending on the business) so take this opportunity to do strategic business planning for the next 6-12 months.

IF you have a product, you’re crazy not to offer a Black Friday or Holiday special to sell more or sell in bulk. Period. Ramp up promotional efforts ASAP before you miss the rush. The best time to start selling is this week! I’ve already seen email blasts going out for the top dogs – get something out there today or tomorrow.

Once that rush is over, I would block out a few days for planning and ‘business nurturing’ time. What do you want to achieve next year? What products do you want to roll out? Write out the exact dollar amount you want to earn next year, or the percentage of growth. Set the date for any teleseminars, product launches, vacations, etc.

By doing all of this work now, you will be fully prepared to max out your days and success in 2018. While many people start this planning in February, you’re already in a huge growth spurt from 2017.

What do you want to achieve in 2018? I’d love to know so I can help offer some advice on how to hit that goal. Send me a Facebook comment or email via my contact page form. I’d love to help!
