All #BoutiqueBosses have been there at some point, overwhelmed, underprepared, and unorganized. The #BoutiqueBoss Planner is almost here, and let us tell you first hand, she’s a lifesaver.
What makes the #BoutiqueBoss Planner different from any other Planner on the market is that it’s more than just a “day planner”. Our #BoutiqueBoss Planner is a small business must-have, with every page specifically designed with a small business owner in mind. Our #BoutiqueBoss Planner has pages dedicated to Goal Planning (annual, quarterly, and monthly goals), Tracking (inventory, sales data, social media audiences), Holiday Collection and Promotion Planning, and Business Checklists (annual, quarterly, and monthly)!
This year, the #BoutiqueBoss Planner included some pretty cool new features that you’ll absolutely want in your life, like, yesterday.
The #BoutiqueBoss Planner launches on October 4th, so there’s no time to waste! Let’s get into these new features!
1. Extended Goal Planning (yearly, quarterly, monthly)
The Goal setting pages at the front of our #BoutiqueBoss Planner are some of the most appreciated and applauded pages in the whole piece. We wish we were in the room on January 1 when every boutique owner has a hot cup of coffee, a fresh pen, and sits down to fill those pages out. The excitement each of you have when planning out your goals and dreaming your biggest dreams gives us chills.
When we sat down to plan out our own goals this year, we realized that our planner didn’t have much space to add in quarterly or monthly goals. Being able to break those BIG goals down into smaller goals throughout the year, is a really important step in planning, and ultimately ACHIEVING, what you’ve set out to do.
This year’s edition of the #BoutiqueBoss Planner has a newly improved goals section, along with the addition of a new spread of pages where you can plan out those Quarterly and Monthly goals—that will keep you crushing your dreams all year long.
2. Holiday Planning and Promotion
In the world of retail, it’s hard to keep everything straight when you’re busy selling swimsuits on the sales floor in 90 degree heat, and buying winter jackets for two seasons ahead, the same day. Throw in remembering to plan your holiday and seasonal promotions as you’re buying that inventory..no wonder you don’t know what day of the week it is.
This year our #BoutiqueBoss Planner features a brand new spread of pages, dedicated to helping you remember when to start buying for specific seasons and holidays, along with when to start planning out your holiday and seasonal marketing promotions. Our Holiday Promotions and Collection Planning section gives you space to STRATEGICALLY plan your buying, marketing and promotions, all together in one place. The stronger and earlier you can make that plan, the more time you and your team have to execute it, resulting in a bigger return on your time and monetary investment…and you feeling like you’ve got a few more things under control.
3. Social Media Tracking
We all dedicate so much time to social media, planning, developing, and posting content….but how do we know it’s working if we don’t track it?
The Social Media Platform tracking pages in our #BoutiqueBoss Planner are some of the most important pages to be referring back to each month, so you can see your progress across platforms, your website, email, and text lists. This year, that page got a bit of a facelift, with the addition of TikTok as a platform. Planner users will now be able to track their TikTok metrics each month, and analyze those numbers in a more efficient fashion!
We also changed a few of our daily tracking sheets throughout the planner, to make them a bit more clear, and a bit less redundant in places!
4. Market Dates
One thing you’ll notice this year is that Market dates aren’t physically in the planner. With supply chain issues, our planner went to print ahead of when markets release their 2022 dates. We do have those dates included in our Digital Download (which comes with your planner purchase). So keep those dates handy, and write your specific market dates in.
5. Content Creator
This year we have a brand new product that we are really excited about. Our #BoutiqueBoss Content Creator. Our Content Creator was developed specifically for the busy business owner. Planning, creating, and implementing content across all channels can feel so overwhelming. The #BoutiqueBoss Content Creator provides you one place to plan it all out and write it all down—keeping you organized and ahead of the game.
This product is laid out similar to our planner, with some resources in the front, and then it has one page, for every single day in the year, where you can plan out each day’s content. Across the top, there are columns for Instagram, Facebook, TikTok & Reels, your VIP Group, and Pinterest. Each of those columns is broken down into squares where you can plan those channels multiple times throughout the day. We also have a place for your emails and texts, along with a few little social reminders and goals (like engaging with other accounts, responding to comments, etc). Unlike the planner, this product isn’t dated, so you can use it at any time in the year, and still get 365-worth of use out of it.
Since we knew this piece was going to be pretty big, since it has a page dedicated to every day, we wanted to keep everything else pretty slimmed down. But we did include a couple of great resources that will help with your overall content planning and social strategy.
The first one is the Holiday & Seasonal planning section. We actually brought this over from our #BoutiqueBoss planner. This is one of those new resources we were talking about earlier. It gives you some space to strategically plan when you’re going to start buying for specific holiday and season collections so that you can get ahead of the game.
The #BoutiqueBoss Planner will be available to purchase on October 4th on the Boutique Boss Store!
