Forward Thinking
Begin 2018 with a detailed review of your business. Examine your past results to make sales projections for the upcoming year. You can start with a weekly or monthly analysis. Remember some holidays float from year to year. So if you are checking Easter sales, for example, study the timing so you can have an accurate comparison. Also look over your expenses including salaries for full time and seasonal employees, advertising and purchases. Did costs match up properly with sales? When you hone in on information from several cycles of data you will be able to make the most reliable predictions for 2018.
