At the beginning of January, we asked our readers  “When Do You Start Creating a Marketing Plan for the New Year?” They were invited to choose up to 2 answers.

According to the results, the majority of respondents said they start working on their marketing plan in December (2007), followed closely by November 2007.  A Full 78% of respondents said they are still working on their marketing plans and 6% said they haven’t even started their marketing plan for the new year.  In addition, 16% of respondents said they plan their marketing on a month by month basis.
