Marketing 101. Did you make a marketing calendar for your business this year? If you haven’t yet then this is a good time to start. Determine which quarters you will be focusing on marketing, sales, management or other Business development. You always need to be doing all four of these but one should take dominance over the others. Quarter 1 is the perfect time to be marketing like crazy and create sales opportunities. This will lead you to have very strong sales in Quarter 2.
For Every Action There Is A Reaction. Hustling in February will not only create more momentum for your next quarter but also create unlimited possibilities in terms of new clients, JVs, sponsorships and strategic alliances etc. The more you hustle and bustle the more momentum and movement you will be creating which will have more people aware of your business and it’s benefits. This kind of action ALWAYS has a reaction, sometimes in ways you never imagined.

Keep your chin high and continue moving forward! Start your marketing strategy now and leverage it to sync with a promotion, sales initiative or event 90 days from now.
