Setting SMART Goals

Sep 2nd 2010 at 2:57 PM

Building your online business is no different from any other aspect of your life.  If you want to be successful you need to establish goals.  Do you know what your online business goals are?  You need to set SMART goals.  What to I mean by that??

SMART goals are: 1) Specific, 2) Measurable, 3) Actionable, 4) Results Oriented, and 5) Time bound

If you say "My goal is to get rich through Affiliate Programs and Network Marketing".. that's nice, but it's NOT a SMART Goal.  It's not specific enough (which programs?, which marketing methods?), its not measurable (what metrics are you using to keep track of your progress), its not actionable (what steps am I taking to advance this goal?), its not results oriented (is the result clear, easy to see when I am there?), and its not time bound (you need to establish an end date to reach your goal).

if you say "I'm going to focus on three affiliate programs (GDI, TrafficWave, and TamPogo) and two PTC programs (OnBux, InCraseBux), and I'm going to promote them using team marketing (e.g. PowerPath/GDI) and through email campaigns with my autoresponder (TrafficWave), and through FacePlate.  My goal is to make $130 a day through these programs and I'm going to achieve this by Dec. 30, 2010."


Do you see why?  I can measure it, I can even break it down further into the steps I need to take to accomplish this goal and measure my progress.  That's exactly what I'm doing folks.  I'm going to reach this goal and reach $130 per day or $3000 per month or $46800 per year.   Guess what my next goal will be?  YEP, $260 per day or $93,600 per year (that will actually be alot easier to achieve).  I bet you can guess my third goal also. :-).  Yep, $520 per day.  Now I might tweak this goal from time to time as I see which parts are working and which parts aren't.  But overall I'm staying on track to achieve the $130 per day by the end of this year! (I already tweaked this from $100 to $130 per day).



Why don't you join the programs below with me and I WILL WORK WITH YOU TO ACHIEVE THIS SAME GOAL FOR YOURSELF!  I will make sure that we both get there.

IncraseBux:  $15 / day


TrafficWave: $ 25 / day

GDI: $50 / day                              

PowerPath (marketing GDI)      

MY FRIEND, YOU NEED TO BE SETTING SMART GOALS!  Are you with me? Come along on this journey with me.  Already in some of these programs? That's OK, I'll help you anyway.  I am going to reach this goal.  If you're with me it will be easier for both of us.  (click one or more of the links above and give me your thoughts on this article).  RJ

Hello, Richard: Setting SMART goals in the S-M-A-R-T way you have outlined is, well, smart! Studies prove that people with well-defined goals achieve much more, a lot faster, than people who are less focused. :-)
