It's a new year and a wonderful time to reflect on your business and how it worked during the past year. If you've had a lot of activity, it's a great time to look over sales and marketing goals, traffic reports, current procedures, sales data and the products and services you're offering to determine how well you did.
You may already have a good idea of how well things went, but it's good to look over your data, because it doesn't lie. If things went well, you're probably feeling confident about 2017 and you're ready to rinse and repeat. If they didn't go so well, you might be feeling a little nervous and unsure of your next move.
Create a Marketing Challenge To-Do List and Action Plan
No matter how things went last year, this is the time to regroup and think about how to improve the area that created your biggest marketing challenge in 2016. Of course, you should make note of those things that didn't work, and stop those practices. Pick at least one area that didn't work, and decide that you will improve it during the coming year. There are probably a few things that "kind of" worked that might need a little tweaking, as well to make them work.
Once you have a list of what works best, create plans, processes and systems that will enable you to do more of whatever it is.

Social Media Tip
Search engines, social media sites and blogs love engagement. The amount of engagement you receive from your pages and posts will be used to provide more exposure for your content. The engagement factor is used to rank your pages, profiles and blog posts, thus the popularity of sites like Tribepro. Tribepro is not as active anymore, because people have formed their own tribes instead of sharing content from strangers.
Engagement includes liking, sharing and commenting on blog posts and social media. It's not enough these days to post on your blog alone. You should also have a strategy that includes participation in communities to receive more traffic, appear in more news feeds and therefore reach more people.
If you have a blog or Facebook page, join our Facebook group for a place to share your posts, content and network with other bloggers. Provide your social media connections and we will like your pages as well. Let's work together In 2017, to help each other reach more people.
