What do you hope to accomplish in the next month?
Owning a small business frequently necessitates wearing many hats. Many people do everything from the CEO to the secretary to the receptionist and everything in between.
As a result, they become disorganized and unable to concentrate on their core business objectives. All their energy goes into the daily grind, leaving them little time for the essential part of their business: running their show!
You can avoid this by spending some time focusing on your business and deciding which marketing strategies will be most helpful in developing your marketing plan. You must first have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish and where you want to go to grow and succeed in your business. To put it another way, do you know what you want to achieve? Also, do you have a written record of your intentions?
This was a completely new idea to me. Some of my French clients thought I was crazy when I tried to teach them to do this in French culture. Because it took me a while to decide to give it a go, I understand why. I believed that I had always been able to accomplish my goals without writing them down. In the end, I decided to give it a whirl because so many other people in this town were already doing so.
Wow! Using this concept has made everything go so much faster!
When I write my objectives down each week, I've been able to create strategic alliances with other entrepreneurs, triple the size of my database, double my revenue last year, and write a book. Since a couple of years ago, I've been working on several new projects with people I never expected to meet or work with.
I've finally made my big dreams come true!
The American way of doing business fascinates me. I'm not sure if you're aware, but you're in a fortunate position. Do you take advantage of all the resources at your disposal?
Writing down your goals regularly encourages you to work on them and take action sooner. "I will have money," "I will have more clients," and "I will be successful" all mean the same thing, but the question is, "When?" There is no time limit on when you must complete them! If, on the other hand, you set a goal of acquiring six new clients by May 30th, you are more likely to act on that goal rather than sit around and hope it happens.
"What are your goals for the next 30 days?" I asked my members at my last networking event. Some people responded right away, while others needed a moment to gather their thoughts. "Thanks, Biba, for reminding me that I need to work on my goals. I had forgotten about it," someone said to me.
Setting an appointment with yourself is the most effective strategy I've found for fitting in time for your goals and marketing strategy. Never, under any circumstances, cancel this appointment with yourself, even if a client emergency arises.
Get into the habit of dedicating an hour or two a month to working on your business, whether brainstorming ideas for new products or services, implementing marketing strategies, or writing articles for publication in your newsletters or ezine directories. There is a direct correlation between the number of backlinks you have and the amount of traffic your website receives. Isn't this something you should be working on in the next 30 days? Is there a newsletter you send out? This is the simplest and most cost-effective way to regularly keep in touch with your customers and potential customers. Another goal for the next 30 days is possible.
Take the time to devise strategies that will aid in your company's growth. It would help if you treated yourself as the most critical customer. Put yourself in the shoes of your customers. Your business requires all of your time, effort, and commitment. It is crucial to your future and success.
