    2007 Goals for Affiliates & Merchants
    Might be a little early, don't know, but I saw a couple of requests for a 2007 Goal thread, so I figure I would start one off. I still need to think about it but will come up with something and post later. If you got them already, lay it out Will leave the 2006 thread stickied for now in case anybody wants to update on how they did/are doing with their 2006 goals. Still have some 2006 left.

    When I started Affiliate Marketing in 2004, the reason was so my husband and I could unplug here in Illinois and plug back in somewhere warmer when he retires.

    He is scheduled to retire in June, so we promised ourselves that January would be spent figuring out where we want to move to and start getting ready. We've already narrowed it to a probable maybe North Carolina or Tennessee. That's still a lot of acreage to further decide.

    I hate the physical part of moving and we've been planted here for 20 years (10 in the same townhouse). But back in our Radio and TV broadcasting days, we could get a job, pack up all the kids and pets and be across the country in just a few weeks. So I'm thinking about this as a real adventure. The original plan was to live on our sailboat without a place on land at all, so I really am grateful that I have to pack up all this crap and move it. The alternative was getting rid of most of my treasures.

    I know that this thread is about Affiliate goals, but since I got into the business so we could do this retirement thing I decided to go ahead and share.

    Hey, I can relate to that. Retiring is defintely one of my [main] 2007 goals. I have been a teacher for 20+ years; and I am finally ready to let go of the "safety net" of that j*b, take early retirement and work full time at this Internet stuff. I went down to a point-five (0.5) position three years ago--working 2 1/2 days per week--to spend more time on this travel business. And it did make a difference. So I am looking forward to the next logical step in 2007.

    Fortunately it looks like I'll take that step "officially" on February 1st or March 1st. Only a couple more months; but, who's counting?

    My "next" goal for 2007 is financial; or "dollar" related. I may, or may not, address that in another post.

    I'm changing my focus a bit, and switching from a large number of small niche sites to a fewer number of ".tv" domains, really pushing the streaming video aspect as a focus. I have restrained myself from picking up .mobis, but if I can't resist, I may tinker about with that extension as well. So, lots of change for me, and probably not too much money in the near term.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Retirement, adventures... we really do seem to be a restless bunch....me too. My spouseketeer, especially so. Because of job requirements I'm on Cape Cod, he's in Baltimore. My goal is to make enough money (about $4,500 a month) so that I can cut my hours back to 3 days a week at the bookstore, by June. That will leave time for sailing, flying, and adventures. If things continue well, I would like to be done with the bookstore in about 2 years.

    The BHO CEOs are fast-moving SOBs. I'd very reluctant to turn my butt towards them, let alone drop my pants.

    Hmm - I have recently returned to hands on affiliate marketing after taking a big break and leaving everything on autopilot. So I have been doing lots of re-evaluating and re-inventing the way I do things in order to catch up with the latest trends.

    Target for 2007 = 50k month

    1. Make more money in 2007 than 2006.
    2. Get my personal site off the ground. Will be just a bunch of randomness. I need a content site because word is Content Is King
    3. By this time next year have the best site as far as volume of codes.
    4. Get Oprah to mention my site. Ongoing goal.

    Well, my Mom complained that I "surf too much" -- she thinks I fool around too much on the Internet

    I guess I'll have to try not to fool around as much anymore (yeah right)

    I still have to brush up on my sites.

    I have some sincere thoughts I want to share on this topic, but I will hold off until just before or after Christmas as time does not permit me to adequately express those thoughts in a focused way right now. But it is gratifying to see the sharing of thoughts that is taking place through this thread. Thank you guys and girls.

    By the end of 2007 I'm going to know more about using php and mysql than Snib knows.

    He'll be asking me for advise.

    Goals for 2007:

    Consolidate the hodgepodge of forms/scripts on one site of mine into a full-blown application, where each piece of the puzzle helps another out. Two years after I start the process, the light is finally at the end of the tunnel.
