Whether it’s July 20 or the cusp of a new year, what’s the value of setting goals? Do you set goals? How do you set goals if you are new to travel? How do you set goals if you’ve been in travel for several years? Do you follow up on your goals? Do you reward yourself if you meet your goals? Do you adjust your plan if you fall short of your goals or reach them early?
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ITEMS that sales goals are based on is data.
Data collected from past sales or data from projected future sales. If you are using past data, and the data was entered correctly, your ability to project future growth will have a great foundation to stand on.. If on the other hand you are using data entered incorrectly, the saying, “Garbage in, garbage out.” might come into play.
Make sure to enter all your data correctly and in a timely manner. That way when you do need data, it will be right at your fingertips..
So in the end, time spent entering data, easily translates into additional income and successful sales and advertising campaigns.
Advertising campaigns with no follow-up sales data is....Up, Up and Away.
Marketing released over the course of a year with no sales data follow up. Think of the campaigs like baloons, floating off, landing somewhere, but where? Wedding shows, email marketing, hard mail marketing, community events and more, all of these were part of my marketing strategy but because I did not have accurate records of the campaigns or the contact and sales that followed. the data simply floated off, up, up and away.
What balloons went higher than others? I didn’t know. What color balloon did people like better than another color? I didn’t know. I knew nothing about my marketing efforts once they left my desk, because I had no exact process.
Ready to get started? It’s YOUR plan, YOUR process.
Make it work for you and your personality type. Be realistic when setting when creating your plan and don't forget to CELEBRATE successes along the way.
