What Is a 90day Plan?

It’s been a while since I did a post on my blog. No, I wasn’t hiding under a rock, but I had to confess I let my FAMILY STUFF get in my way. I do not recommend you do that, because it is a mission to get back into it. I had to do some work on myself, soul searching, going through my goals, make a solid plan for myself in order to move forward. With that being said, today I am going to focus on 90 day plan. I wanted to do this post due to a question I had from one of my readers. The question was – “Please explain what the 90 day plan is?” Campbellann5 Thank you Campbellann5 for asking the question & I am sure there are others who have the same question. There is a popular saying that “If you fail to plan you are planning to fail”. Whether it is a small business, home business, large corporation, sports team or a competitive athlete there need to be a plan to achieve their goals. In this post I am going to talk about home business owner just like you and me. The first step is to establish the goals (short, medium and long term) you want to achieve. For example: You want to get … number of clients a month by the end of …. Month. -> this could be your short term goal You long term goal could be that you want to quit your day JOB by the end of … month… & so on, I guess you get the picture. You can definitely create 1 year plan, 3yr plan, 5yr plan or 10+yrs plans to work towards achieving your goals. In this whole scheme of things your 90DAY PLANS  are very important because, 1. You can track your progress in the short term 2. You can use your 90day data to create your long term plans 3. If something is not working as expected, you can make the necessary adjustments so that you will be on track to achieve your goals 4. 90day plans repeated over and over again will help you achieve your main long term goals Now you know why we need a 90 day plan and the importance of it, let’s see the best way to MAKE this plan. Some would say that 90day plan is a daily plan repeated 90 days, which is somewhat true because you don’t have to do the same things every single day. You can make 90day plans for any aspect of your business, in this post I am focusing on your marketing and lead generation. Few things you need to bear in mind when you are planning. 1. How much time you have invest on your business 2. How much money you are going to invest in the business 3. What are the marketing methods you already mastered Once you decide on the time and the marketing methods you can now plan your days or make your Daily Method of Operation. (DMO) The best way I do this is plan the week, because you will not do certain activities every day. It will look something like this. It is important to write down the time you will be doing a particular activity because you will need to show up to work that time & do the assigned task. It is best to have a plan on paper; it could be something like the one below. For example: On Monday you may be doing the following 9am-10am – write 1 article and submit to article directories 10am – 10.30 am – add 25 friends to facebook, communicate with 10 friends, 5 group posts…etc 10.30 – 11.30 am – Check Pay Per Click advertising campaigns, add 5 campaigns…etc Then on Tuesday, your DMO may look the same or different. Hope you get the picture. So, for your 90 day plan you will have 13 of such weeks & if you take action and follow through you will reap the rewards. You will have to be patient here, because some of the marketing methods take time to generate results. It is important that you follow through the 90days so that you have some data to follow through and / or make changes to your plan. When you do back to back 90day plans, with out even realizing you will start to achieve your goals one by one. Only thing is you should not take days and weeks to put a plan together, just a couple of hours will be enough to get your plan on paper. Then you need to take ACTION! The greatest plan on earth is not going to give you any result if you don’t put it to action. “PLAN your WORK and WORK your PLAN” – sorry, not sure who said this, but it is a great one. So, share your thoughts on 90day plans. What experiences do you have with it? If you never done a 90day plan before do it now & let me know how you are getting on. If this is of some help to you please share with your team, friends and followers on Twitter and Facebook. It is easy to do, just click on the green button above. Yours in Success
