How to use a Marketing Calendar

Marketing Calendar

Is maintaining consistent and regular marketing activity easier said than done?

I come across this quite regularly. Business owners only get stuck into marketing in their spare time, when they aren’t tied up with meetings and core business activity. This is a big mistake as anyone who is experiencing the ‘feast’ and ‘famine’ syndrome will know! What do I mean by feast and famine? Well – it is when you are either over-run with work and earning good money, or quiet and wondering when the next paid work is coming along.

Feast and famine is not a good business model! Honest!

Planning and delivering regular and consistent marketing activity is ESSENTIAL for your business to generate constant leads and for cash-flow to become easier to manage. Only getting around to marketing when you having nothing left to do is definitely not a good way to run your business. So how can you make sure that you have regular and consistent marketing activity taking place?
