Aug 27, 2008
Are you making the grave mistake by not treating your online business as seriously as you would treat an offline business? Even if you have an online business, you must make it a point to check your results at the month end and plan ahead for the next month. Planning and setting a goal at the end of each month and incorporating it from the beginning of each every month is very essential.

While planning, read your mind properly. Figure out what do you want and accordingly chalk out your plan. Include all the activities that are necessary for you to carry out in order to reach to your goal.

If you're really serious about your business and want to take it to the next level, you must consider to set a goal each month. Record the performance of your business in the previous months as well. What you can do is, take your tracking sheets, date calendar and scheduler to the nearest cafe and analyze your business success and then accordingly set your goals.

While analyzing your business accomplishments, try to figure out what went wrong earlier or how could you have done a certain thing which would have given you a better output. Based on your proper analysis, your chalk out your business plan for the next month. Let me give you an example here: Say, you know that if you give 3 presentations, then you can make at least 1 sale and you aim to close one sale or enroll a new person every week, now do the math, 3 calls a week for 1 month (4 weeks) therefore, you will have to do at least twelve presentation in a month, at the rate of 3 presentations per week.

Based on your calculations and track record, if you need to give telephonic presentation to three people at least, then for attaining your aim of reaching to three people for giving presentations, you will need to speak to at least nine people.

In order to make your plan of telephonic presentation more effective and organized, do plan the date and time of making the calls in advance. What you can do is refer to your database and write down the names of those people who you intend to call during the week.

So first plan your work and work towards to sticking to your plan and executing it. With proper planning, you can indeed take your business a step ahead. Consider your past month's experience and result and keeping them in mind move ahead and sketch your next month's to do list. Be more innovative and work towards improving yourself. Keep yourself updated about the ongoings in your niche and develop new ways. However, organize yourself properly and put your ideas in to practice in a steady manner. That's the key to success in any business.
