Course Description

This one-hour TechCast will address the most standard annual business plans address the tactical goals and focus on budgeting for the upcoming year; an EMyth annual business development plan contains both those tactical goals but also includes strategic objectives. For example, a standard plan might say: “We will grow sales revenues by 20% next year.” Whereas the EMyth business development would say: “We will grow sales revenues by 20% next year by: 1) setting monthly sales targets; 2) innovating and documenting our marketing and sales processes to generate more leads and conversions; and 3) hiring and training three new salespeople.” Do you see the difference? A business plan and an EMyth business development plan are closely related—the former contains the goals to be achieved and the latter contains the goals and how to achieve them, while also creating the systems and foundation that is needed to achieve growth and enable expansion.
