Program of Work

What is a program of work?


A program of work is a set of marching orders, a plan, a calendar. It’s a way to stop missing the opportunity of having Valentine’s products or posting a Father’s Day Sale or that meaningful essay for Veteran’s Day. It helps you have a blog ready or the right photo for the “national day of” or  just know it’s that awareness month that is close to your heart. If you need to order supplies and create, it takes even longer! This system helps plan giveaways and sales as well. Oh, and vacation can’t sneak up on you either.


Getting your business on track!

So, what do you need to do?

1.       Research what days might be applicable to you. For example, things like the National Day of the Cowboy, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as nationally recognized holidays.

2.       Mark those dates on your calendar.

3.       Mark a date to start planning content or making posts if lead-up content is necessary.

4.       If applicable, mark a date to order supplies or complete production.
