What is your Goal with IM?

39 replies
A very effective technique for holding yourself accountable
and reach your goals is to publicly state them.

What is your main goal with Internet marketing right now?

I'll start...

My biggest goal right now is to hit $8,333 per month by December
this year.

OK, your turn. Lets do this!

      My goal is to make enough money per month to leave my retirement account alone and I am doing that so I guess I have met my goal. I don't want to be greedy but I guess my goal is to work less and make as much money.

    Step 1: Payoff some stuff to eliminate monthly bills. (half way done)
    Step 2: Make enough so my wife can stay at home with the kids. (Currently making about the same online as she is from her job so as soon as those bills are done I'm there).
    Step 3: Make at least as much online as I make from my 'day job'.
    Step 4: Try to take over the world.

    I always shoot for more, but unlike many people I do it in small steps. What I mean is, when I first started Internet marketing, my goal was to make $100 a month. Once I accomplished that it grew. I have been doing this for years now and always reaching my goals because they are easily reachable. Now it still continues to grow and I never have to feel the disappointment of not reaching my goal.

    Many great goals here. Freedom and enough money to whatever is the ultimate goal. $2Million is enough in the bankaccount to relax...

    $10k/month is my goal right now. But I aim at $20k/month, its better to aim high and hit it half than to aim low and hit 50% of it...

    I resigned from my job 1 month ago and have my last day on May 31. I am currently making 500-1000 each month (my best was 4000) but need 6000 each month to match my current income.

    My appartment is on the market right now (I am currently cleaning) and I have bought a nice appartment close to the river in a new city outside Oslo. This life rediesign will give me 8-12 months worth of expenses after the debth is paid.

    My goal is to build my online income to a level where I can avoid 9-5 before my reserves are gone. It is kind of a huge risk, but I am pretty confident I can make it.

    It feels good to finally know that I only have one option: to reach my goal or accept failure.

      Stick at it, you'll make it with the right effort. This recession just seems to make the rich richer and the poor poorer!

      If I may, I'd like to add a little suggestion. I'm reading 'The Art of Happiness' by the Dalai Lama & Howard Cutler at the moment, and one thing they say is that if we think we'll achieve happiness by reaching a certain goal, we'll never be happy, as as soon as we've reached that goal, we think of another one. Our needs keep growing and growing.

      True happiness comes from appreciating what we already have. Most of us on here have far more than the majority of the world's population will ever do.

      Of course it's fine to set targets and earn a nice amount of money, but I'd just like to suggest that you don't base your happiness on achieving these goals.

      I used to earn decent money & get paid to travel the world doing business development for a big travel company, but got fed up. Now, at the moment, I scrape by, earning just enough to pay my bills, eat and go out every now and again, but I'm happier than I've ever been. I know with enough effort I'll make enough money to pay my bills and live a comfortable life with my family, and not have to slave away to make somebody else richer, who's already rich

    WOW, lots of great goals.... My goal is to make $34 a day for a start, that adds up to $1,020 a month(30days)

    I have reached my goal of $10 a day, so I am very happy and can see my goal of $34 a day is a for sure possibility by this year!

    Once that goal is reached, of course that $34 a day bar will be raised. ;]

    My goal with IM is not much the different from the rest of the guys on this thread - to earn enough to quit my full-time job which means earning at least £4,000 per month, grow my list to at least 5000 by the end of the year, create my first WSO, spend more time with my young family yada yada yada.

    I could go on and be more specific but for now that's about as far as I'm willing to commit in a public forum and talk is cheap... Good luck one and all - hope you all meet and exceed your goals in IM this year!

    Now for a bit of advice.. find someone who is already successful in doing what you want to do and learn from them how to become a success!
