    Well, since i'm the one who started the "Affiliate Goals for 2004??" I think is time to start another thread but for affiliate goals for 2005.
    In my case, i've been very busy working on my sites, i'm not yet where i'd like to be but i'm working on it. My goal for 2005 is to make 2000/month.
    Good luck everybody for next year.

    Personally, I will be diligently working to regain my previous SE positions and regaining my lost traffic. I would also like to see the spammers and thieving parasites begin to get their dues. Merchants and networks, wake up!

    My goal would be to master my ASP skills and start building Dynamic pages rather than static ones. Build the site that I have been planning for a long time, its complete on papers, have to start converting the idea to pages. And start earning somewhere between 1k and 2k. By the end of 2005 if I achieve that that would be the ultimate success for me.

    My goal for 2005 is to create three new sites that I think each will have some huge potential.

    My goal for next year is to earn $500,000 in affiliate commissions and to keep building sites that rely on repeat traffic and not be at the mercy of the search engines...

    My goal for 2005 is to get my new site going
    Maintain my current site
    Learn more about PHP (and other things)
    ...and earn 1,000 a month in total commissions from all networks.

    I have a looooong way to go!
    Never argue with an idiot.

    "Why of course James, same procedure as every year." From "Dinner for One", a German TV New Years tradition.

    And as the quote goes, my plan for 2005 is the same as for 2004. Continuously improve my existing sites (I'm fluctuating just above and below the $10K mark monthly now) and add a real presence in the Travel niche. I know it's a hard one, but I travel all over the world and have thousands of photos and stories - I should be able to turn them into something unique and generate some substantial revenue (spending a month in Australia and Singapore starting in mid-December). I just need to devote more time to it...

    Same goal I've had for quite some time: earn 1k in a single month. I don't have the time I used to have. I'm working smarter instead.

    Complete the plans we've created for the fiscal year. The rest will fall into place.

    Get my business up and running, allowing me to work from home and have this as my full time job. I want to be able to walk into the next room and see my family whenever I want!

    This year I want to try one of those fancy, schmancy sites that automatically update from a data feed.

    I guess, I have to learn some new skills.

    Blimey - there's a big number! but seeing as I already hit and beat my original goal for 2005 in 2004, that'll do for me too.

    Paul,
    It may be a big number but the worse that can happen with setting a goal that high is that I may achieve it... I've seen others doing that thru affiliate marketing so I figure it's my turn..
    A wise man once said, Set a goal high enough so that in achieving it you become a person worth becoming...
    That and the phrase "<span class="ev_code_RED">No Limits No Rules No Regrets</span>" are the 2 phrases I plan to live by in 2005..
    Affiliate marketing is still so new on the internet, so many avenues left unexplored, those who persevere and refuse to give up due to traffic fluctuations will be the ones to reap the big rewards...
    Besides this lady likes jewelry a lot and funding that habit is important..

    $100,000,000 in commission a day sounds nice.

    Get traffic and earnings back (crashed in October).

    Trim site down by 25% and drop 25% of merchants.

    More boating, less computering.

    My ultimate goal is to join the 10k club. I can't NOT put that down!

    But...this year I would like to triple my monthly earnings. I've seemed to hit a plateau this past few months and I can't break the ceiling.

    I also want to create a dedicated Christmas site this year (early, early, early) - have been thinking about this all week trying to come up with some unique ideas.

    Bring back to life one of my datafeed sites that has evidently been sandboxed. It has so much potential.

    Write an ebook that no sane person can live without. ha ha
