We’ve brought you lists in the past, such as 27 Things That Help and Hurt SEO, 8 Skills and SEO Must Possess and 4 Areas of Search & Social Focus. They’ve been, in general, pretty focused. Now we’re going to bring forward a broader view of a general plan designed to help businesses set up a reasonable starting point from which to grow.
We see this type of planning lacking in so many businesses today, and with some time and effort, you can build a plan that will help your business grow in the years to come. No business should be without a plan, but it’s tough to know how to build that plan sometimes.
And while a typical business plan includes things like an economic assessment of the market, a business profile, your marketing plan, details on people and skills and more, the list here is a bit more focused. It’s designed to help a business at any stage of planning – whether the business is a concept, or a going concern. So let's take a look at where to focus. These lists are in no order as where each business is will differ, and some points may be more important at various times.
Now, every one of those points above is worthy of more detail. This is simply an overview designed to get you thinking of a broader plan to grow your business. For small businesses, tackling so many areas might not make sense – or even be needed, depending on the actual business.
But everyone will have something that’s in these lists which isn’t getting the attention it deserves. Ask yourself where your time is really going, and why it’s going there.
