As most small business owners know, a variety of responsibilities can fall onto the shoulders of the owners themselves or be separated within only a small team of people. ExcelTemplates.net has provided various spreadsheets to help keep things on track and plan ahead for a busy holiday season.
Marketing is a vital role in attracting new attention or keeping the attention of current customers. Small business owners can choose from television advertising, radio advertising, social media, or even print to get in front of the right customer base. All marketing efforts should begin with a well laid out budget. The Marketing Project Plan Template breaks down planning from research to the various types of avenues that exist to spread the word about a particular company or product. “Since all of our templates are customizable, you can edit the categories to include added pay for a social media person or fliers just for the holiday season,” explains Ben Davidson, ExcelTemplates.net spokesperson. “We include the basics but you can always add anything that fits your business and its needs.”
A very necessary step before launching any marketing campaign is to prepare the inventory for the expected holiday rush. The Basic Inventory Control Spreadsheet is great for small businesses or companies with a smaller product base. Taking inventory during the summer months allows a business owner to properly order or create what is needed for the holiday season. Setting reorder levels also helps keep things on track so there are never empty shelves. “You can take inventory a step further and run an Inventory Analysis at the end of the holiday season to project future sales and profits,” adds Davidson.
Another issue that small business owners may find themselves facing is hiring temporary employees to help with the holiday season. Whether those employees start midsummer to help with production or start at the beginning of the season, their addition may require specific types of Time Sheets to help keep everything on track. From basic time sheets for employee use to complex spreadsheets that allow management to view time from an operations perspective, ExcelTemplates.net has provided various templates that can help any small business owner.
Preparing for the holiday season invariably adds tasks, appointments, and events to an owner’s schedule that are not part of their off-season routine. The Daily Work Schedule Template is a day to day planner that allows various tasks and notes to be entered in order to keep everything on track. “Not only do we want to ensure that owners have the right tools for their business, we also want to empower them as well in their various responsibilities, both at work and at home,” explains Davidson. “The less surprises a small business has, the smoother the holiday season will be.”
The marketing plan is in place, the inventory is complete, all new employees are properly accounted for, and the business owner has a schedule in place to keep everything on track. Now the holiday season begins and success chimes with every register close thanks to ExcelTemplates.net.
