Do you prepare your content, product or pitch ahead of time? How far out do you plan?
One year, Six months, three months, maybe even a few weeks.
These are questions you must know the answers to and follow through with if you want to run a successful business.
There are four things that you absolutely must need in order to this this correctly. A 12 month calendar, editorial or school holiday calendar, a calculator and Excel to track your numbers. Or another program if you prefer.
If you are using Social Media to enhance and advertise your brand message then you should absolutely have a content and/or editorial calendar for the topics you plan on posting throughout the week.
You always want to stay ahead of the game. You want to take advantage of popular used hashtags in order to gain visibility to your pages. I am not saying this do this all the time I am simply saying it is something you should really take a look at. If it makes the most sense as to what service or product your brand provides then by all means go for it!
If you have not hopped on the social media train yet no worries. This still applies to you. You want to grab a calendar and of course your computer and look at holidays, important business days and trending people or places. Research everything you can under this topic to see how you can use those days to help promote your business.
Advertisements and products are always designed and paid for months and sometimes years in advance so if this is your route then you probably already have a strategy in place. If you don’t then I think you may really need my help! I can absolutely help you put together the best plan of action and point you in the right direction which would be more sales in your business. However, I hope this part is already taken care of 🙂
