3 Internal Reasons Your Business Is Not Growing

Wrong Strategy – Lack of Focus – Poor Execution

1. Wrong Strategy – can you summarize your company’s strategy in 25 words or less?

Is your time and resources actually supporting your strategy?  If so what %?  Is it enough?

2. Lack of Focus – are you identifying and pursuing specific market opportunities?  Do you have a well-defined client profile?  Have you formulated a targeted marketing plan that is measurable?

3. Poor Execution – Execution is critical to success.  Execution represents a disciplined process or a logical set of connected activities that enables your organization to take strategy and make it work.  Without a careful, planned approach to execution, strategic goals can not be attained.

 Plan for Success: Education and Support for New and Aspiring Authors

Toronto, Ont., December 6th, 2011 – What is the difference between a best seller and an unknown book title?  A solid business and marketing plan, according to www.PublishandPromote.ca (the education division of Lotus Moon Press).

“Most authors dream of writing a best seller, appearing on a celebrity TV show and touring the country from coast to coast.  But where they fall short is having a real understanding of the business of being a successful author, and investing the time to write a solid business plan for promoting and marketing their book(s),” explains Deenah, PR and Marketing for Lotus Moon Press.

The new education division of Lotus Moon Press, PublishandPromote.ca, was created to equip new aspiring authors, in Canada and the United States, with the know-how, tools and resources needed to be successful, and connect them to the most appropriate channels for distribution and obtaining media attention in a strategic and cost-effective manner.

One of the goals of PublishandPromote.ca is to ensure that new and aspiring authors also avoid costly mistakes, such as targeting their audience inappropriately, sending out an inconsistent image and message, not creating professional sales tools or media kits, and poor planning of publicity and marketing campaigns.

Whether authors decide to self-publish or submit a proposal to a publisher, they need to understand the business of publishing and promoting in order to be successful!  Everything you need to know is just one click away in our comprehensive e-course.
