Santa is making a List and Checking it Twice. Should You?

  

 

As the end of the year approaches, it is never too late to take another close look at your business to decide whether good or bad decisions were made. It can be as easy as:

 

  • Measuring customer service. Take the time to ask clients for feedback on their home buying/selling experience. Use it to better serve present and future clientele.

 

  • Assessing marketing strategies. Marketing is often a moving target. Evaluate the advertising and marketing plan for any necessary improvements.

 

  • Reviewing business accounts. Analyze and understand how effectively the money was spent during the year to adjust the budget accordingly.

 

  • Making tax adjustments. Pre-pay some expenses or add extra tax payments to lessen the end-of-year burden. Take advantage of all business expenses.

 

  • Reflecting on this year's goals, setting goals for 2019. Revisit long / short-term goals. Brainstorm for fresh ideas to stand out against the competition.

 

The Coming New Year means a new start in business. The possibilities are endless when prepared and motivated to make the best decisions based on past performance. So while Santa makes his list, make yours too!

 

For business sake!

Hi Wanda,
Every year has it's share of good and bad decisions, don't they?  Hopefully, we can learn from the poor ones and move on ever better.

If we stayed with the tried and true, rather than trying to re-invent the wheel or being taken by 'too good to be true' marketing schemes, we'd be in a right place more often Joyce Marsh, Daytona Beach Florida. Wishing you the best that the coming year offers!

Morning Wanda.

I don't go after clients anymore, just agents.  Most of them have been with us for a long time.  Two of them moved out of state this year.  I get to talk to them often.

I suggest adding one more eliminate to this:  why wait until December to reflect and adjust?  Our plan includes a weekly assessment of our actions and choices.  It is far easier to correct a direction near the beginning, than waiting until we are several months into a bad choice.  October is a great month to look at the medium and long-range portion of the plan; and, make adjustments to the journey and destination. November is implementing those longer-term adjustments, leaving December as an opportunity to get a jump on the next year.

Reviewing your business plan and monitoring your achievements every quarter is essential. Adjustments might be necessary to maintain momentum or if necessary, change the direction of your activities. However, accessing your accomplishments  and challenges at year end is fundamental to optimizing your goals and objectives while forecasting reasonable expectations for the new year.

I would add personal retirement planning to your list of topics to either add or review and if possible maximize your contributions to reduce your income tax and enjoy your lifestyle when you finally retire, above ground that is!
