One step ahead

It may still be be frosty at places but for most winter holidays are soon over and within the next couple of weeks many, at least in the northern hemisphere will think, … “see ya’all in September”. We all know that once a season starts in whatever field you may work, it will all be go go go and many of us have learnt a hard lesson of getting prepared to late.stepcloser-frost

The old saying “Fail to plan, plan to fail” * may be harsh but in many cases true. Sure, you may be able to sort things out at last minute but if you already have ideas why not start the process and be one step ahead.

Have you got your web-site up and running, have you got your business cards and flyers ready to go? Be prepared, things does take time, you will get delayed, you will want to tweak something, correspondence takes time, printers and other suppliers may have delays, allow for these possible delays. If you have not got all information at hand, prepare the rest and then you can pop in that last image or that last bit of information and you are ready to go.

Now to get the process going here are some questions for you to reflect upon .. 😉

  • Have you got your logo and branding under wraps?
  • Have you got a presence on the web?
  • Are you looking for a fresh look or approach?
  • Are you thinking flyers are a way to go?
  • Do you want to reach a different or wider target group?
  • In need of visual concepts, images, graphics, colour-changes?
  • Are you thinking of a possible brochure?

Make notes of ideas that pop into your mind they will be valuable tools even if they are scribbled down on an old envelope or newspaper.

.. and now you are already One Step Ahead. 🙂
