For years the Association of Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC) has been fortunate to have Rhonda Abrams contribute to professional development sessions and support America’s 1200+ local SBDCs with timely information, online tools, free books and other resources. Now Rhonda and Planning Shop have partnered with Visa to bring new products and resources to thousands more small businesses!
One of the new products is the 2012 Holiday Success Guide http://usa.visa.com/download/business/2012holidaysuccess.pdf. Yes, I know it would’ve been great to see this before now, but if you only look at 2 or 3 pages, you will see that it can still impact your sales efforts and your business planning. And here’s a little secret: most of the information doesn’t just apply to the holiday season. Some of the forms, lists and exercises can form a great foundation to your marketing plans for next year. And speaking of next year…
Another great new resource is actively rolling out this month through https://www.facebook.com/visasmallbiz. This features a 25-part guide “Planning for Success in 2013” which is delivered only through Facebook, so far as I can tell.
There you have it – two more free tools to help you better think, plan, measure and organize your business in the weeks to come. Please let me know if you find these helpful.
