What Is Your 6-Month Business Plan?
We want to talk about a 6-month business plan, because everyone always seems to be focused on that end goal. The emphasis shouldn’t be on the future. It should be on what’s around the corner. Because with business, what could be around the corner could easily determine the future of your business.
So, rather than focusing on the future, focus on the present, and the next week, and the next month. By doing this, you’ll create such a clear picture of what your business is actually going to need, and what might take it from success to success.
So, here’s a 6-month business plan in this contributed article that we think your business needs, and how you can implement it to get the best results.
Months 1 & 2:
Whether your business has been going for a while, or whether it’s newly established, these first two months will make sense to you all. Because if you want your business to grow, you really need to put some focus on your marketing efforts. If you want people to notice you, the marketing is pretty much the only thing that’s going to do it.
Spend the first month formulating a plan with a range of different marketing techniques, and spend the second month implementing them. We would highly recommend that you take some time to find a good marketing consultant to guide you.
You could do all the research in the world, but it wouldn’t stop you making mistakes, or even thinking that something will work for your company when it won’t. Make sure you’re pumping a lot of money into this area as well.
We know that it might be hard to give away thousands to something that might not work, but the more you play around with marketing, the more it will work, and the more money you’ll be able to make!
Months 3 & 4:
Once you’ve got your exposure up, it’s all about growing your business from within. Most of you reading this may have a company that delivers goods to customers. One way of doing this is to get your employees to get a heavy rigid license.
Rather than outsourcing, you can maintain your own fleet, save money in the long run, and ensure that you have the means to provide your customers with top quality service. You should also think about promoting your employees.
The more roles you have spread out between the employees, and the more possibilities of promotion, and the better your company will run!
Months 5 & 6:
The last months of your business plan involve the maintenance of your company, and ensuring that you’re managing all areas with efficiency. If you spend all of your time trying to control just one area, you run a big risk of letting other areas fail.
If you check your business as a whole, and even get outside help such as a business analyst, then you’ll have more chance of being a well rounded business. The better boss you are, the better your business is going to be.
Running a successful business is not ‘a walk in the park’; but when you ‘know the way to the park’, it can and will make the difference. Here’s hoping that this 6-month business plan will prove to be a source of information for you and your business. All the best.

How would you like to learn how to post on a blog like this one?
You can put your thoughts on paper but learning how to build your own blog is something different. If you have the right training it is not that difficult.
When you learn how to build your own blog you get to choose the things that you write about. You can also use the blog to make extra income. Here is where I learned how to build my own blog and connect with people who helped me along the way.
