Start thinking about 2017 now? But it’s not even November yet. While January may seem lightyears away, the New Year will be here before you know it. The hustle and bustle of the holidays will swoop in, speed past us in a flash, and, before we know it, we will be enjoying another 12 months of marketing possibilities.
Rather than waiting for the busy holiday season to start planning your course for the next year, you should be thinking about 2017 now.
Smart business owners begin developing their marketing plans early for many reasons:
While it may be smart to start planning now, where should your business begin? Below are some things you can do today to get your 2017 marketing strategy started off right.
– Think of the goals you want to accomplish. Set benchmarks and targets to measure your success.
– Consider new avenues for advertising. Investigate outlets such as Pandora, Facebook and Instagram to discover new ways to reach your audience.
– Create a flexible budget. While you may not have the dollars and cents nailed down completely, start budgeting for next year’s marketing expenses.
– Find the right professional partner to help. Experienced teams like Grand Marketing Solutions can be instrumental in providing the insight into what would be best for your unique goals.
