In just 4 weeks from today it will be all about tinsel, opening of presents and loads of food and drink. If you’re feeling anything like me, then just surviving till you go on leave is what you are concentrating on. For most of you, planning for 2019 is probably riiiiiiiight down at the bottom and not something you wish to tackle. Here’s why it’s the wrong move and why you SHOULD be looking at your marketing planning , if you wish to see Marketing Success for your brand in 2019.
It’s Liberating! I’ve already set strategies and marketing plans for my clients for the first 6 months of 2019. It’s what I do for a living and even I wasn’t too keen on knuckling down. But once I got stuck in, it was so liberating, knowing that when I come back in the new year, I can refine those strategies and truly give my clients the best of me! A real weight off my shoulders! I think if you gave it a try, you’d feel the same.
It allows you time to breathe: Being prepared for 2019, now means you will be able to take a step back and gain some real perspective of your brand. It will allow you to take stock of your business’s progress, shortcomings, successes and help you build on that.
More focus: And lastly more focus means, better results! If you’re constantly marketing off the fly with no real plan and strategy, there is no way your marketing will be successful. But with more focus and a plan in place, you can truly make 2019 a year that rocks!
We took a little stock of our brand this year and also reflected on what we did for our clients. 2018 has been a year filled with amazing blessings, huge growth and ultimately, it was another year where I got to do what I love to do. Here is a little recap of what we got up to:
I wish you amazing blessings for the remainder of 2018 and I encourage you to get planning, to make your marketing work for you in 2019. If you need help or don’t know where to start, get in touch. Myself and my team look forward to working with you in 2019.
