Dear Reader

Where's your business going next year? Do you have a plan? Do you know how much your turnover will be? Do you know how many new clients you'll take on and how you'll get them?

This is a good time to look at what you've done this year and what you'd like to achieve next year. This issue of Scribbles is full of articles you might find useful.

Best wishes for a great Christmas and a Prosperous New Year,


What's Your Plan for 2014?

The end of the year is a great time to look back on what's worked over the past twelve months and create a plan for the coming year. Having a plan will stop you going through the 'feast and famine' syndrome that so many small businesses experience. Instead of not knowing where the next new client is coming from, or how you're going to find the time to do enough marketing, create yourself a plan and you'll find it easier to bring in a steady flow of business.

Here's a selection of resources to help you create your plan for 2014:

The 9 Minute Marketing Plan – the steps you need to go through to create the best plan.

What to do when there are only 42 days left until Christmas – or how to plan your seasonal marketing.

Do you plan your social media? Lots of tips on how to decide which social media tools to use.

How often should you review your marketing? And what's the best way to do it?

Perfect Pie Charts – or how to measure your marketing for better results next time.

Have fun creating your plan for 2014! If you need help with it, take a look at the Brunch Briefing workshop we're running at the end of February 2014.
