It’s day two of the new year and I’m hoping that if you’ve set any New Year’s resolutions, you’re still on track. Many of us set personal resolutions on January 1, but do you set business resolutions as well?
If your email in-box is like mine, you receive a variety of business information emails. A few that have crossed my in-box lately contain some great New Year’s resolutions for your business that are worth passing along.
Plan Your Year – Sounds like one of the basics because it is, yet it’s surprising how many businesses don’t take the time to plan their goals for the coming year. Set realistic goals, realize change is inevitable and most importantly, know how you’re going to measure your results.
Set Your Social Plan – Social marketing is about much more than putting up your business Facebook page. It’s about building relationships and building your business. Need help with how to do it well? We’ve got an EXPO seminar featuring a social media expert that will do just that.
If it’s Not Working, Don’t Do It – As the saying goes, know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Make 2012 the year you get rid of what’s not working for you and your business. Take a hard look at what’s working and what’s not to streamline the year ahead.
Do More “Social” Marketing that has Nothing to do With Technology – Even in the digital world, there’s still no replacement for human contact and interaction. Keeping networking at the top of your to-do list pays dividends. Your chamber hosts over 50 events each year designed to drive your revenue and build your business-take advantage of them.
Here’s to a successful, productive and prosperous New Year for all!
