Today I’m going to discuss my Marketing From Scratch Business Plan 2015 and in this short video show you exactly what my plans are.
Warning! This is very very simple indeed
I hope you enjoyed the video and take onboard how simple this business can be. This year alone I have seen more revenue than the previous two years by simply creating and releasing products with the correct marketing in place.
The term Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) couldn’t be more relevant! So this year I will be keeping it simple and sticking to my business plan:
1. More Products
2. Back to Blogging
3. Building Subscribers (this happens by default)
This also means less time getting caught up in social media.. Watching videos of crazy cats and dogs DOES NOT MAKE YOU MONEY!!
Do you have a plan for 2015?
Also I hope you like the look of the new blog. It took me all of new years day to complete. It still has some tweaks to iron out, but it’s 99% there..
Sometimes I don’t think I know enough to make a business plan that is so simple and understandable. I have noticed that many of the most experienced IMers got sidetracked in 2014 in their quest to help all of us. We do appreciate your efforts to teach us.
In this coming year, my quest is to stay laser-focused on P2S. All of the offers coming along are not going to help me if I can’t pay the bills. I want to participate with the experts, but not for free.
Thanks for the reminder that focus is required!
Don’t get sidetracked is the key here. Take onboard good advice and recommendations and stay focused on your own ultimate goal. Get your first product out there with P2S and they push from there.
Ive been doing this a long time and for me I know what works now, I know where I have failed in the past and where I have succeeded. Products and blogging were my successes. That’s where I’m staying 🙂 Simple..
Thanks for sharing your plan with me. I, too am going to put a simple plan in place to do exactly what you have describes here. Keeping it simple, build my subscriber base, do some WSO’s and build my buyers list first.
I just bought Product Launch Control and upgraded to Partnership to Success program, so I’ll be learning a lot from that. Very excited about the coming year.
I’ve been using Xmind lately too and it really helps to keep me focused.
Best of luck to you in the coming year.
You are in super safe hand with P2S, stick with it buddy, that’s all you need to focus on. Remove everything else..
Firstly, I like the new look of your blog. Secondly, I liked the video -short & to the point. Lastly, love the plan! My plan is similar – more products, more blogging (which equates to building a bigger list) and later in the year Google Ads.
Nice plan Craig, sounds a little like mine lol 🙂
Nice one Dan, simple certainly does it for me!
If I could change your ‘more products’ for ‘a product’ then it would be identical to my plan 🙂
Mind if I borrow it?
Create that product buddy and don’t stop until it’s done!
I like your plan Dan because it’s well laid out with the mindmap and not complicated. Keep it simple sweetie!
I want to focus on a remake of my site, publishing and creating products. I’m also going to continue offering writing services for a while.
Wishing you much success in 1915
Nice plan Fran. I’m loving my new plan of simplistic because I know it will work. I haven’t created a take over the world plan like I did last year. I simply took what works and built on it.
Thanks Fran 🙂
Good to see your own plans as it has given me some ideas for this year. I defo want to simplify things this year and stop getting distracted by things that are not going to help me. So naturally I am trying to bring together some sort of plan of attack for this year.
Hi Andrew, I start late last year by trimming down my business, staying away from items that didn’t directly affect it as well. This worked for me and I will continue to do it this year.
Hi Andrew, there is no reason why this same plan couldn’t work the same for you. try it and see what it brings.
Hi Dan. How will your “more product” strategy fit in with the new and very complex EU vat rules?
TBH I will let my accountant deal with that. I know JV Zoo have or are putting something in place so it should be fine for product sales. Although I’m not sure about direct Paypal payments.
Your Marketing from Scratch Business Plan 2015 is very useful and helpful. I will try to follow your plan. I’m really glad to read this article. Thanks for sharing.
Great plan there, mate! Simple, undistracted, focused – those are the keys.
Focus is so, so important. In fact, I’ve just left a comment about this very point on another blog, remembering something I heard Lee McIntyre say. In a nutshell, when we’re working on something we have to ask ourselves if it’s directly related to moving our business forwards. If not, then we need to think about what we could be doing that IS and then focus on that, coming back to less important stuff later if there’s time.
I’m a cat lover so I’m a sucker for cat videos, but nope, they won’t make me money! This is the big danger of going on social media. It’s a tough one because social media is such a powerful tool for marketing purposes, but it’s SO easy to get sidetracked and, before we know it, we’ve wasted 30 minutes, an hour, half a day or whatever wading through a load of stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with what we went there for. At the end of the day, that is not going to do a thing to move our businesses forward.
I’m looking forward to seeing what your simple plan helps you to achieve this year, Dan. Wishing you all the best in what lies ahead! 🙂
I’m actually a good friend of Lee McIntyre, he has some awesome advice to give!
Stay focused Glenn and don’t get side tracked.
Dan you the MAN!
That is my business plan for 2015 too.
This is my year of focus on product creation.
I have got sidetracked in the past dabbling in many different areas and it has got me nowhere. The past few months I have been focused on getting my product done and am happy to say it will be launching next month, sooo excited!
Here’s to a successful year,
Thanks Super Raj (Great name) Yeah stay focused man..
I like the idea of starting a marketing plan from scratch, even if it’s not too easy.
inspiring but I still not good in building subscription lists and manage a newsletter. I am not good with email marketing I know it is a huge mistake but it is just not my nature and I know I need to change, thanks for this amazing video
Thanks Jossef 🙂
