Plymouth were in danger of suffering relegation to the Conference right until the final day of last season, but the turnaround in results following John Sheridan's appointment as manager eventually proved to be enough to secure the Pilgrims their place in League Two.
Now, with a host of new signings in place, Wotton is expecting a better campaign this time around.
He told Sky Sports News Radio: "The gaffer has made some good signings and they've all settled in well.
"I think the biggest thing is changing the mentality of the club. It's had three or four seasons of tough times and financial worries, but that's behind us now so it's changing the mentality of being a losing team to a winning football club [that is important].
"It won't happen overnight but we're planting the seeds and pre-season has gone well.
"One thing the manager believes in is attacking football so I think the philosophy will change, and we've been working on things in pre-season that we'll hopefully see start to work this season.
"I think fans should be looking forward to the season coming."
