It’s October already! How did that happen so quickly?!
Autumn is now well and truly here. Summer is becoming a distant memory, with darker mornings and Christmas decorations already in the shops. I heard Slade the other day in the Co-op.
If you are busy with current workloads, or prone to procrastination, then “Look into marketing for next year” may be falling off today’s to-do list and slipping on to the “Ah, it can wait” list.
However, year end is fast looming! Where will your revenue be coming from next year?
Mid October: Read a wonderful article from award-winning marketing consultancy, Emerald Frog Marketing, explaining about the year-end marketing planning process and contact Jo to discuss Emerald Frog Marketing’s small business marketing support service.
Mid to end October: Meet up with a tall, yet affable, lady from Emerald Frog to discuss your marketing objectives for the forthcoming year.
Start of November: Decide on your business’ marketing budget to determine marketing activity and appropriate tactics for 2017 and get the necessary sign offs to get the ball rolling.
Start/ mid November: Engage the aforementioned award-winning marketing consultancy to go off and write a comprehensive marketing strategy plan for your business, detailing your marketing activity month by month for the forthcoming year.
End November/beginning December: Receive and discuss the marketing plan written by an expert (and did I mention, award-winning) frog. Feel positive and excited about the forthcoming year’s plans to promote your business.
Mid December: Decide whether you would like to handle your marketing plan yourself with your in-house resource with a bit of a steer from said affable frog, or outsource to Emerald Frog Marketing’s Marketing Management service – giving you full use of a marketing professional for however many hours a month you need yet without having to pay her holiday pay, pension, sick pay or any other ties to your payroll.
End of December: Relax and enjoy Christmas and New Year, safe in the knowledge that your marketing for 2018 is being taken care of by Emerald Frog Marketing.
