GROUPtalk LIVE  Session with Q&A
Who Why How & What 2020 Review and 2021 Plans
featuring Robert Hendrickson
Some people say because of C19 the future has already become "The New Normal". Others say what happened was an asterisk anomaly never to be repeated. Either perspective could be correct. Maybe a combination of both. Planning on what could happen requires reviewing what did happen.

Question #1. Who - were all those customers that showed up and drove your sales to unexpected levels?
Question #2. Why - did so many of them suddenly become plant and garden enthusiasts? 
Question #3. Why - did they shop at your business?
Question #4. Why - should they come back for more next year?
Question #5. How - are you going to connect with 2020 shoppers in 2021?
Question #6. What - are you going to say to them in your marketing message?
