How to Accomplish Goals for Your Blog Business
Every year at the beginning of the year here and see a lot of people talking about goals. My advice to you is talk is cheap. Setting your goal or goals is the easy part making it happen it a different story. One thing to keep in mind if you want to accomplish goals this year is to set smart goals.
Set smart goals and realistic goals
You need to take a look at where your at and where you want to get to. You then need to figure out the steps or time effort and money to get you their. Anything is possible with the right amount of time effort and money but most of us don’t have unlimited resources.
Why it is good to push yourself don’t see a goal to do a million dollar launch this year if you know have the resources or skills to make that happen. Better yet if you have never even done a launch don’t think your 1st one will be a million dollar one. A better goal would be to just launch your first product. I have a goal to launch my 1st product this quarter and really the goal is to just launch it. If I make money great but so much goes in to launching a product if you do it right I just want to get the experience of launching my own product for the 1st time.
Once you decide on you goal or goals you need to figure out all the steps and people you need to help you accomplish your goals. One good ideal it to come up with a goal statement make it public. Those that talk about their goals have greater success. You might even find that others will come and help you especially in the blogging world. People tend to like to help others (another goal of mine). You also need to make sure that your goals are measurable goals their really isn’t any point in setting a goal if you can measure it.
Do I need to have formal goals?
NO, don’t waste time just open notepad or a take a piece of paper out. Just be sure to write down your goals and keep them some where where you will look at them regularly. You can even write a blog post about them or keep a page for them and then cross them off. Then every week or month look at them and figure out what your doing to work toward them. Maybe you will focus on one of them each month. It all depends on how lofty they are.
I pretty much look at my goals every month. This year I have a couple of themes. Run my blog like a business and be more consistent. This is a snip from part of my business plan that I will share still in draft but this is what I am looking at so far for 2010. I can drill down in to each of these and maybe I will in another post but here you go.
