Not long ago, I was talking with a fellow online article author, she has well over 100 articles on strategic planning advice, articles with case studies, stories, and "how to ideas" to develop a winning business strategy. She also writes a column for her local metro newspaper on business topics. I've been very impressed with her work; in fact it has inspired me to reminisce about my own business career as a Franchisor Founder prior to retirement you see.
Indeed, following her lead I have been considering all the business plans, marketing plans, regional expansion plans, 5-year plans, and growth strategy objectives I had put together over the years. How our Blitz Marketing teams would go in to capture new business of our best market segments, and how we would recruit the best people to ensure we could deliver on our sales and marketing promises. Think about your own business career and what you had to do to succeed, consider that many going into business or perhaps struggling to survive could benefit from your expertise in strategic planning.
Why not put together a few sample plan outlines to help them get it done? Why not offer tips on putting together a strategy team or planning session? Why not explain to them the reasons for constant review and how a business plan is just a picture, but plans change and planning is a process, not something you ever complete or allow to remain static or throw it into a drawer or tuck away some obscure labeled file on your computer never to look at it again?
If you're going to become an article author specializing on business topics then you at least need to have a decent number of articles in the strategic planning category. I invite you to read some of my articles, as well as some of the other top articles in this venue, and perhaps you could lend your expertise to the cause of helping American entrepreneurs, as well as small business owners around the globe. You might even be surprised and shocked yourself to find your articles are even better than mine, and offer new and unique examples, case studies, and real-life situations which have never been told.
It's not difficult to write articles on strategic planning, it's only difficult to do it correctly and prepare relevant information that today's entrepreneurs truly need. If you can do that, you deserve all the success you acquire as an online article author because you are helping the entire business community; small, medium, and even large corporations. Remember; "those who fail to plan, are planning to fail." Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
