    2008 GOALS for Affiliates & Merchants
    OK - we've got the First Quarter of 2008 behind us. So what are some of our goals for this year - 2008?

    I saw a request in the ol' 2007 "goals thread" for an updated version - so thought I'd start off a current one. I'll have to think about mine a bit before posting. But, if you have yours already defined, and would like to share...
    ...go ahead and have a go. Post 'em right here.

    Cool--finally, a 2008 goals thread!
    Stuck.

    Now, let's see...

    Increase sales on all merchant sites.
    Revamp some affiliate sites.
    Lose lots of weight. (20Lbs down already!)
    Sell something on eBay, so I can show my mother how to do it and get her to quit bugging me about that.
    Actually do some gardening again this year.


    Those are the ones I can think of right now.

    I'm going to double my income per month by letting no site go neglected, and by finishing the sites in my "to do" queue.

    Oh yes, and I'm also going to start something new that ties every goal I have together.

    I want to make enough money and stockpile it to cover all my costs - including health care for 12 months. So I can then think about the next step.

    My strategy is similiar to ProWebAddict's. Last Year I added dozens of sites and hundreds of merchants. This year I'm intensifying them and developing a unified strategy.

    I have too many goals both personal and professional to put down, but these are my big three right now:

    1. Improve the quality of communications with affiliates (always at the top of my list)
    2. Add to the educational and help resources for affiliates on NetshopsAffiliates.com
    3. Strong and steady growth every day in both sales and the quality of our program

    Why isn't anyone posting?

    I know we have to be secretive but sheesh!

    People used to be a lot more open about their goals...like back in 2002

    Goodness how old is this forum?

    All the people that posted their goal back in 2002 are very rich by now, so I think they don't need new goals anymore.

    Ah yes, so does that mean that in 2014 everyone who posted in this thread will be saying this?

    ...You can never be TOO rich, or TOO thin, or have TOO much plastic surgery... j/k at the latter. I am a natural beauty....

    1) Create, develop and monetize new sites - 5 sites/blogs
    2) Exercise and eat healthy so I can get rid of the affiliate spread. - 15 lbs.
    3) Make more commission per day - $150 per day

    I would like to double my income this year so we can afford for hubby to go back to school full-time and get a master's degree.

    But I'd like to do it without actually killing myself from exhaustion. lol!

    Would like to break through the "super affiliate" threshold by year's end.
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    I have been reading thread after thread and this one is by far my favorite...My goals would have to be:

    1. Continually assisting to strengthen my current affiliate’s campaigns and meeting and exceeding their sales goals.
    2. Continue growing and creating brand awareness for the freecreditreports360.com brand within the affiliate world by adding our strong offer to new affiliate’s portfolios.
    3. Double current monthly sales volume. (Gotta reach!)

    ...there are many others but that's a good start :-)

    I was fortunate in being able to meet my personal Affiliate Marketing goals for 2007. I was able to cut the "apron strings" of holding onto my "day j*b" of the last 22 years. It was a j*b that I loved, but it was stifling the growth of our Affiliate Marketing business.

    My 2008 goals are taking a different tack. The main one being to have a successful launch of a new Suite of Affiliate Tools for affiliates to use in promoting merchant products.

    I didnt post my goals in 2002, but I was peaking on this board since...
    I have been exploring the life and let the life expore me. I have left my sites alone for years while I was in the Mil.

    I'm problebly an example of the old schoolers who is still poor.

    Though you might be right that those posters might be rich and didnt post anymore. I notice that the ID I used to follow around aint here no more. They, maybe, changed their ID??

    I got blindsided by a family member's physical and mental medical crisis so I've been off line for months.
    My goal is to set up my first site this year and learn the process and make big, huge, gigantic amounts of money. (grin). I know it's not THAT easy.
