Setting Your Marketing Goals And Following Through

Setting goals in business is just is just as important as putting eggs in a cake batter. This is because goal setting is part of the recipe to success. Not just online, but in any business.

Choosing Your Goals

When setting goals, you are going to need to know where you want to go. What is your ideal outcome? How much do you want to accomplish in one week? What about two weeks?

Once you've answered these questions, it's important to be able to choose actions that will get you where you want to be.

If you ask me, without goals, you're not going to be moving anywhere even if you use all other marketing methods properly. You may get somewhere, but I'm not the kind of person who is willing to bet my livelyhood on luck.

Goals Should Make You Feel Inspired

Don't just pick goals that others have chosen. It's going to inspire you more when you keep your own visions in mind and not give in to the wants of others.

Just because one person was successful with their specific goals doesn't mean you'll be successful if you "copy and paste" their goals into your mind.

I know quite a few people who have done the "copy and paste" method and wonder why they weren't successful like the original owner of the specific goals.

The reason one becomes successful and reaches goals that have been set is because their goals are usually something they've always dreamed of. It's something they've wanted for a long time and usually their entire life.

Don't play follow the leader when setting a goal.

Do More Than Dream

Setting goals and daydreaming about achieving them aren't going to do you any good. Even though it's important to set goals that get you inspired, make sure you're able to actually work towards those goals instead of sitting back and imagining you've already succeeded.

I'm a big dreamer, so I know what it's like to enjoy a good old fashioned daydream about what I would do if I had this or that.

One of the reasons I still haven't achieved some of those goals that I have set for myself is because one of the lessons I had to learn was that I definitely couldn't just give in to the feel good habit of daydreaming but should actually do something to feel good about accomplishing those goals in reality.

Make Your Goals Your Energy

Sometimes I'm guilty of thinking achieving my goals is just impossible. It can get frustrating and start to feel like trying to reach your goals are zapping your energy.

Instead, when you wake up in the mornings, read your goals aloud and remind yourself of what it is you ultimately want to achieve.

This is where it is okay to briefly daydream if it helps to get you inspired again. Just be careful that you don't spend the day making plans and that you spend more time taking action on those plans.

It takes so much less work to daydream about reaching your goals, but in the long run, it's going to feel much better to come out of that daydream realizing you've actually already achieved the goals you've been daydreaming about.
