So January is done and dusted, how was the first month of the year for your business? January is traditionally a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. Have you achieved everything you set out to achieve? Have things gone according to plan?
I am glad to see the back of January because we had a miserable start to the new year with 2 and half weeks of no heating or hot water, it was not pleasant! I was also sick for my birthday which was rubbish, however from a business point of view my January rocked!
At the start of the month I got myself a week view diary and every Monday wrote my daily tasks and weekly goals. I’ve been sharing these on my Facebook page if you want to check them out. (Please like my page if you find it useful 😊).
I found this a really useful tool for keeping me motivated and on track, and am very pleased to say I have been taking consistent action everyday towards growing my business.
My business goals that I set out at the beginning of the year are simple; grow my list and reach the 4 figure club. The method; 1 paid traffic method and 1 free traffic method. My free traffic method is Quora and I have posted everyday on the site. I have added a few subscribers and made a sale through doing this.
My paid traffic method was not so simple. I decided to try Google Display Network ads and invested a lot of time learning about them, however when it came to actually setting them up, it became apparent that they’re not for me at this time, so I reverted to Facebook ads.
I learnt a lot and ultimately still achieved my monthly goal of getting paid and free traffic methods under way and growing my list. I have also been attending my weekly coaching webinar consistently and am in the process of putting something I learnt from that into action.
I have also started doing monthly planners this year, which again I share on my Facebook page, and also at the end of each month I send a pdf planner to my list so they can use it to prepare for their month too. If you’d like to join my list and get one of these planners sent to you for next month then you can do so via my About me page
So all in all I am very pleased with how January had been, I can not wait for February, today marks a very exciting day with a launch of something new and very helpful….
…I will be doing a special blog post all about it, maybe later on today or maybe later on in the week, not sure yet but keep your eyes peeled for that. If you’re not seeing the results you want with your affiliate marketing endeavours then you need to see this…..
Well that’s it for me today, I’ve got a day of planning, script writing and video making ahead of me!
Please get in touch and let me know how your February plans are shaping up and how your January went, I am always interested in how other people manage their businesses.
Bye for now
