There are a few steps to do this and the most important is often
overlooked as just to complicated to do.
YOUR Business Plan
Being tired all the time. Hating to have to do some chores. Not skilled
enough to do the ones you want to do! Feeling goals are a waste of
time. New Years is coming and here we go again!
These are all signs you do NOT have a business plan.
The biggest sign is money out, sometimes a lot of it, and not enough
coming back in to cover your costs.
Now that is self-defeating! Isn’t it time to make a severe change in
how you perceive your business dealings? Even affiliates need a
business plan. As long as you are online, even if the goal is just to
make enough income to offset pensions or poor paying jobs, you really
need to consider a business plan.
Golden Tip #1:
Goals and a business plan are two separate parts of a whole.
A business plan is what the bank would need to decide you are a good
risk for a loan. That’s offline though not far off the mark for online.
You still have to proof your intentions if that dream is to become a
reality and prospects are to believe in you.
If you do not think a business plan is important, the next time
someone asks you what are you doing online and you falter for the
right response then you know. A business plan better head your
priority list for 2014.
Golden Tip #2:
Keep the business plan and goals distinctly separate in this respect.
Each goal will always be open to change where the business plan is
fairly static. Changes to a business plan will always step you up to
a new level.
A series of goals can cover the income expectations in a given period
of time, or the revolving changes you feel may be needed to reflect goal
attainment, or it might cover cost projections and a ton more.
Golden Tip #3:
One major goal too many marketers overlook is their outsourcing of
what is needed to replace what they do.
Did that one raise red flags?
The fastest route to overwhelm and lost enthusiasm is to be all things
to your business. As you grow, there will come a need to make a
decision. Do you bring in new staff to be trained to take over the load
OR because you are experienced and not so new, but know what you want,
to outsource the daily actions of your business so that you are free to
do the marketing necessary to growing its future?
Depending on your business and how much you can automate, you may need
both. Again, as you are hopefully beginning to realize, the importance
of having a working business plan.
Enjoy the holiday period with family and friends. It is also a time of
reflection. If you need a business plan, start writing one out. If you
have a business plan, take a hard look at where you are in it and what
you need to do to improve cost vs. income projections for 2014. What
a cool way to get back that feeling good feeling about your business.
