I am re-publishing this article today for several reasons.
Most importantly is that I want people to have an opportunity to make 2011 a really great year and that starts by building a plan.
The 90 day plan format is perfect for so many reasons, not least it is manageable and achievable for pretty much anybody.
The vast majority of business owners (over 90%) will go into 2011 exactly the same way they went into 2010, but will expect and hope for different results.
By taking just a few hours out of your business and concentrating on planning and strategy for the first quarter of the New Year has the potential to make a massive difference.
This Friday (10th December) I have just two spaces available for my last and best 90 day planning day of the year.
If you really, truly want different results in 2011 then you really, truly need to do something different. Building a great plan is the best place to start.
These workshops have been going on all year every 90 days and we have returning business owners at each event. They have an edge over their competition – you can too.
Join us this Friday 10th 12 noon through til 16:30 with lunch provided.

It’s that time of year where we begin to evaluate how well we did and start to develop new plans for this year. This year I’d like to suggest that you try something new, rather than creating a one-year marketing plan or a five-year marketing plan, why not try creating a 90-day plan?
While it’s important to always monitoring your marketing it is vital in this economy to be diligent and watch where you spend your marketing pounds as well as track how effective your marketing campaigns are.
Why a 90-day plan?
What better time to get started than today? I’ve always noticed when working with companies to redo their marketing plan and build out a workable strategy that it ignites a new excitement about the business and the potential that may have been lost in the paperwork and busyness of day-to-day duties.
Are you ready to get started? Find a quiet place, sit down and spend some time evaluating and answering the following questions:
Now use the answers to these questions and chart them on a 90-day timeline. Set your start date, your end date and what you will do in between. Evaluate weekly how your plan is working, make changes where you need to and adjust when necessary. When you list out what has to happen in the next 90-days, you’ll have a clearer picture of priorities, a realistic working plan, and the results you’ll generate.
