Creative Shop Talk with Wendy Batten

Dec 21, 2020

Previously, we discussed five prompts for year planning in Part 1 of my “Plan Your Best Retail Year Ever” series. These helped us to look back before we can move forward. In part 2, we talked about three prompts that help retail business owners plan for 2021. These three prompts are related to our numbers and finances. 

In this week’s episode, Part 3 of the series, we are going to talk about what we need to do to get where we want to go. How do we get customers? 

I discuss different ways you can make money and how to put a simple marketing plan in place. Budgeting doesn’t have to be difficult if you have all the information you need, so I also share tips on how you can budget by quarter. 

I know we talk a lot about managing money and planning for 2021 in these episodes, and you might have a lot of questions and doubts. I want to help your business grow. I’m excited to announce that I am hosting a free session inside my Facebook group Rock Star Creatives on December 30th to answer all your questions about this series. This group is a free and safe space where creative shop owners hang out and share business insights and tips. 

If you would like to learn at a deeper level, you can join my Retail Made Simple workshop that starts next month. When you enroll in the course, you will learn and understand not just the process of planning a whole new year but how the retail business works.
