Marketing Plans - Are you ready?

Depending on your business, normally product based versus serviced based, you will either be manically busy right now or like us,  this will be your quiet patch.

If you are in the quiet patch, then make sure you make the most of it and put those finishing touches to the marketing plan. Because you do have  a plan don't you?

Remember the cliche, don't expect different results if you do the same things next year that you did this year.

Set a realistically achievable but challenging target, then plan exactly how you will achieve it. 

Maybe you will be trying to break into a new market, maybe it's a strategy of generating potential referrals from existing customers or simply upselling to your customer base. Or are you looking at doing trade shows or investigating PPC? Planning can be great fun, but make sure you track progress and keep updating the plan throughout the year. 

Even if you don't achieve your targets, you will have a wealth of data and information to analyse to understand why not, and set fresh targets for the next year.

Did anybody meet or smash any targets from last year? Is anyone sat looking at a blank piece of paper and wants some inspiration?

I am definitely going to have to change something, in my 11 years of selling this has had to be the worst ever. The last few google updates  and changes this last year have really seen a huge drop in numbers and sales , litter ally down to single digits per week . So next year I am going to have to rebuild my website as zencart structure and gotten worse and worse as google gets better at detecting website issues.. Thing is even my test site I have up and running is doing really badly ,but to be fair I only finished it 2 months ago and it only has basic template ..So I may have to make a decision

Yup, sent them to admin@ did you not receive? A bunch of PDF reports.

PM me a different email address if the admin isn't the right one (it's your forum login email).

I've just gone though all my emails again and not received 1 from you ..It is the right email..You can send it to sales@ same ending as admin has been compromised and am in the process of removing it to be sales  at the end of the year.

It's worth while running your email to see if your email is hacked
