One of those things I believe is that if one doesn’t have a goal, then one has no idea what it is they’re trying to do. So, this week I have two goals, one for my main business, and the other for my internet business. I’m only going to talk about my internet business here, since it’s what this blog is supposed to be about.
My goal for this week is so simple that I’m surprised I haven’t set it before. It’s simple, yet it’s going to be hard, at least for me, because it’s something I’ve never done. My goal,… I want to make $100 on the internet this week. Yup, that’s it, make $100 measly dollars.
The best week I’ve ever had was around $65. That was the week I sold one of my business products and made some Adsense cash. That one product of mine sold for $60, so just the fact that I made $6 on Adsense was good and bad at the same time. It was good because it’s always good to make money, but bad because, well, I’m hoping to make more than that on a weekly basis, though I’ve been averaging under that; isn’t that a shame? I need to get better at affiliate marketing, for sure.
I’m lucky to have some money put away so that my livelihood doesn’t depend on this $100 I’m trying to make, but the way I see it, if I can figure out how to make $100 in a week, then it’ll be a nice step towards figuring out how to make even more with some regularity. But I’ll tell you what I’m not doing. I’m not writing any sponsored posts, or pay per post. I probably will write a couple of posts about some products I market and recommend, which is different because I only get paid for that stuff if someone buys. One of my friends says we have to find things people want and sell them that. Well heck, if I could figure that one out I’d be swimming in money. Maybe that’s one of the tricks I need to do, ask people what it is they want and what they’re hoping it might cost to get it online, then I can go through all the affiliate information I have to see if I have what they want at the price they’re hoping for, or at least something close. Any of y’all want to play along with that one?
Anyway, it’s my goal; let’s see what I can do to get there.
