Setting Goals For Your Online Business

The need for goals

Reaching our goals helps us to believe in ourselves and setting goals is a great way to fuel our ambitions. It isn’t just about creating a plan for our success in life, it’s also to give us the inspiration we need to reach out and reap more than we ever thought possible. Goals focus our acquiring of knowledge and help us to set our time and resources in an order to get the very best for our situations.

Guidance in your niche selection
What do you like to do? What are your habits, hobbies, or passions? There are a number of niche choices within any main topic when you break it down.

An example could be Baseball which is a very broad term with lots of competition. If we break that down there are many niche selections to choose from within that keyword: baseball teams, major or minor league, kids, uniforms, statistics, jerseys, caps, equipment, collectables, magazines, etc.

All of these baseball niche can be fine selections to build a website around and can be quite profitable. I have an entrepreneur friend that has a number of sites, one of which is a website about football snack helmets, which has been doing well for a few years now.

What are niche goal projections and outcomes?

A projected outcome of your goals within your chosen niche.

Niche – The topic or category that you’ve chosen for your site.

Goal – The end result that you are seeking.

Projection – An estimation of when the end result will occur,

for example:

First commission sale within 30 days.
>>>>By writing an article per day for 30 days.
First page ranking with my targeted keyword within 30 days.
>>>>By writing posts three times a week for four weeks, with each having an internal link to my targeted keyword page.
What exactly are you going to do to reach your goal? Or what are you willing to give up in exchange for the desired goal? Maybe turn off the TV for a few hours each day, or trade in some wasted time for, that same time being spent to reach your goals.

The law of sowing and reaping

There is a time for sowing and a time for reaping. The time spent sowing, or creating the business can be for years depending on the project and the desired result. Once the sowing time is up, the reaping time can start and be indefinite.

There are many tasks that need to be done with any set goal and each one takes time and effort to complete. I’ve heard that “excellence is a commitment to completion”, so we need to be good finishers of each task and reach our goals.

The time spent sowing can be less depending on the effort given to it. If we sow little we will reap little also. If we are building a website and posting to it once a week it will take quite a while longer to reach our goals of filling it up with quality content, as opposed to posting 3-4 times per week.

Are you busy or productive?

The definition for:

Busy – actively involved in doing something, or having a lot of things to do.

Productive – achieving or producing a significant amount or result.

Are we busy doing many things without a proper order or timely, continuous task completion?

Example: spending hours on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter and also additional hours on other things without making posting quality content for our viewers our #1 priority.

It’s easy at times to get involved or over-involved in a project that ends up taking a lot more time than we thought but aside from that we’ll be more productive and reach our goals quicker if we properly structure our time and always make posting fresh quality content a priority.

Create clear niche images

We need to do some internal and external research and visually see some other website businesses within our niche. This will give a look at how the other niche sites are presenting themselves and their products. The internal research is making a list, over a couple or few days, of things that we love to do, or what are we passionate about. It’s best to select a niche that you would like to spend a lot of time and energy on, not one that you’ll get bored with or become disinterested with. We can also choose to create a nice affiliate website setup to inform about and promote products, or have a non-profit or personal site (.org). Many website owners have multiple sites.

Create a vision board

Do you have any wall space at home to devote to a vision board? They’re great to increase motivation and energize your efforts as you pursue goals.

Take a nice area of wall space and fill it up with goal related images and headlines and pictures that inspire every time you look at it. See, visualize, and feel the goal being reached as you look at the board and are inspired to move forward and achieve. Keep on adding and replacing inspiring images and text to keep it fresh, in sight and also in your mind.

Websites like Pinterest are great for creating vision boards and one can create as many boards as they want for fun, or to keep private.

Ninja Productivity Tip

I guess it doesn’t matter what type of business that you are promoting but all have dozens of tasks that need to be done continually and properly. Many have multiple internet businesses and always have a list of things that need to be done asap. Well here’s a great tip I’ve used and recommend to you.

Plan ahead and:

Remove all distractions or find a place where you can be uninterrupted.
Choose only one thing to focus on completely for an hour and set a timer.
Stop when the timer goes off and leave it for the next time. Don’t think about it anymore.
Take a short walk or take a non-sitting break, unless you’ve been using a standing desk. Lying flat on your back might feel good too.
Start the next task and repeat the process.
If a little more than 60 minutes is needed go ahead and finish the task before taking a break. If it needs much more time to complete put it away until next time. After you’ve powered through a focused hour and taken a break to refresh, you can set the timer for another 60 minutes and continue where you left off or move to another task.

Highest Competitors – could find some info useful whether a video or previously unknown fact.

Building a product keyword list
It’s really necessary to use a good keyword tool and there are a number of good ones Free online and most at least have free trials.

The goal for every article or post is to get your article and website ranked well with Google, Bing, Yahoo, and the rest of the search engines. This will attract visitors from the vastness of the internet to visit your site.

Make Money Online With Your Own Internet Business

The Make Money Farce
You have seen them and probably received thousands of them since you have begun internet marketing. They come out the wood works, don’t they? Opportunities promising that you too can make money online with little to no effort. You then invest your money into the opportunity only to find out there aren’t any pies in the sky… only the cold hard reality that you just spent some of your rent money on someone’s new car.

Yes, this is the reality many internet marketers face. I have been there. I started in this business with my father and let me tell you… we have seen every scam under the sun. Why? Because we were those people who had a dream and wanted to help other people through success only to find out there ain’t no free lunch in business. The cold hard truth is that “business is business”. Period. There are a million work from home opportunities contrived each year. There are many more gullible individuals who buy into the dream. In the end, they are left like me and my dad… a few thousand dollars shorter.

But, It’s Online And It Has To Be TRUE
Here is a revelation. People who scam lie. They don’t just lie a little, its more like lie a lot. They want you to trust them, and to believe their story. But when it comes to delivering… well. You know. You’ve been there a thousand and one times. You’ve spent your money on the magic potions of the internet only to realize that you are out of money and now have a rash (the legendary rash of discouragement).

I’m not here to sell you a pie in the sky. I am here to be your jolt of reality. Sleeper, it’s time to wake up! The internet is not some new invention that defies the laws of business. It is business on steroids. Imagine the business rules you know and then multiply them by the sheer volume of variables now introduced by the online component. The internet can allow you to become very wealthy or very broke.

So… Can I Make Money Online Or Not?!
You can young Jedi. I know some of the things I’ve said may be a little cheeky but I am serious. There is no money like “internet business” online money. The thing is you have to see it for what it is. Your internet business is just that… a business. Do not enter the online business field with any other mindset than “I am going to run MY business”.

There is nothing more rewarding and satisfying professionally then running your own business. And if ran right, your internet business can feed you and your family. You may be looking for quick ways to make money. Once you setup your business depending upon the model you use the money can come quick. It all comes down to you and your imagination. Add hustle, grind, and grit and you got something.
