With ambitious goals, end of the year reports, and presents that aren't going to wrap themselves plaguing your forth quarter, it's no secret that you have your hands full.

However, if you don't have a plan for how you are going to achieve your marketing goals next year, you're putting yourself at risk of not hitting them at all.

(Good luck explaining that one to your boss.)

So to help you get started, we've rounded up five revealing infographics to inspire your strategic planning.

1. How to Influence & Persuade

Understanding what motivates people helps us to better tailor our content to speak to their needs. Robert Cialdini's six principles of persuasion have proven their ability to help businesses accomplish their goals. If you're interested in applying some psychological insight to your marketing initiatives for next year, pay close attention to the following tips and stats.

This inforgraphic from Positionly serves as the perfect comparisons between old best practices and new ones. So as your plan your SEO strategy for next year, be sure to consult this list.

Blogging success doesn't happen accidentally. In fact, there's a lot of strategic thinking behind your industry's most popular blogs. If you're having trouble getting yours off the ground, or you haven't committed to starting one yet, this infographic will serve as a push in the right direction.

5) How to Get People to Your Website

Growth hacking is so much more than just a buzzword. While it's a fairly modern marketing technique, many businesses have seen huge success from using these strategic tactics to grow their businesses.
