A new year, a new set of goals.
Goals are often thought about in the first week or two of the new year, but soon forgotten. Often because good intentions are not matched by ACTION.
If you have written down your goals you are on the right track (and you are probably familiar with the Harvard study that suggests that the 3% of graduates that write down their goals, are actually the highest income earners in relation to their classmates).
BUT here is what I know.
SMART goals will take you so much further than your average goal. Written or not, a goal must be broken down to be a SMART goal.
What is a SMART goal? Well here you go.
It is two days to 2014… do you know where your Goals, Dreams and Aspirations for 2013 are?
It is time to check in and see how close you came, where you fell short, and what you can change for next years goals. Here are 5 steps to checking in to see how you did, and get you ready for next years goal setting.
This is one of our favorite recipes over the holidays! They are sooo good... here is a little tip, do not remove the cookies from the cookie tray until the kisses have hardened again. They will drop down to a dallop of chocolate instead of a cute little Kiss!
It is fun to watch my daughter bake, she gets so excited about making these and more at Christmas!
I think you are going to LOVE this poem... can't you relate!
It’s the week before Christmas and all through the house,
The shopping, the wrapping, the baking is fair,

As a small business owner, you have a lot on your mind, marketing, selling, blogging, customer relations, accounting, not to mention now will most likely be the BIGGEST FOUR WEEKS of the year in sales for your business!
So are you ready?
Get yourself a plan together for BLACK FRIDAY, CYBER MONDAY and CHRISTMAS shopping NOW If you haven't already done so, now is the time to be very clear on the offers you will be having over the next three weeks. Black Friday is known not only in the US, but many other countries are also taking on this shopping day that seems to cause such a frenzy in buyers. Know what you are going to offer and what each day will look like. Schedule your announcements for each sale, is it a day, a three day event or a week long sale? What will you offer and what will be your Call To Action
Make each promotion different Spice it up a bit. What will you do to appeal to your different clients. Perhaps the first promotion will deal with only a certain brand, or products you can sell at under $20. For instance "Black Friday makes it easy to purchase all your Christmas gifts for only $20.00. Sales items will be discounted at up to 70% to keep this Christmas within budget. Check out these items you can buy now for only $20.00.
Make it different! Are you doing the same thing as everyone else, or do you have an edge? Be sure to think outside of the box, there will be a LOT of sales during this time. Tell me why I should buy from you, or make it different.
PRE CAMPAIGN - What will you do to create an awareness of your campaign before it starts... so that people watch for it. How bout sending out an email like this! Get others ready for Black Friday / Cyber Monday and Pre- Christmas shopping. We just did!
If you are not a FIITFU member yet, you will want to watch for our PROMOTIONS on these days... Check our Facebook page, our Twitter account as well as your emails!
TRACK YOUR ACTIVITY... have you heard of re-purposing? The sales you create from these campaigns will benefit you down the road as well... as long as you follow up! Get repeat sales, referrals and testimonials from your clients. How do you do this. As long as you RECORD everything you do and record every sale you make! How did they hear about you, what did they buy, what would they still like to purchase.
USE YOUR FIITFU ACCOUNT TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THIS INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN THE NEW YEAR!
With all the sales you make this month, you won't be able to remember them all, but Fiitfu will help you to remember. How can you possibly remember all these people in January - March when they are ready to re-purchase?
Invest your time now, stay organized and on top of your November / December sales Next year you can look back and see what worked and what didn't work. Each year your campaigns will be more and more successful as you analyze what worked the best for you the year before.
TAKE A BREAK... after your big sales push, take some time off and enjoy Christmas with your Family.
Now get ready to do it again for BOXING DAY AND NEW YEARS!
