With the year coming to an end (and the second-year anniversary of my blog coming in February), I thought now would be a good time to write down my goals for the direction I want to take my internet marketing business in the coming year.  As I was sitting here thinking, I realized that there were some things I accomplished while I missed the boat on others.  So here we go.

1. Continue to grow my blog and brand myself.  Thankfully, I survived all the Google algorithm changes and have come out on top.  In times past, I would spend a lot of time backlinking and getting traffic, but now, my blog gets backlinks and traffic naturally with a simple post.  It goes to show you that when you build a solid foundation, you will make it through — no matter what’s thrown your way.  I’m gonna keep cranking out the quality content.  Two things I want to do in order to improve my blog are to focus on actively building my list and getting more into social media.

2. Focus on building up a second stream of income.  This is a goal I have had for some time, but I let it kind of fall by the waste side.  I plan to do this by launching my own PLR store.  I have actually purchased a program and a domain some time ago, but haven’t done anything with either of them.  Both the program and domain are just sitting idle.  In order to motivate myself, I have decided to set a goal of doing at least one article pack a week.  I figure having at least 52 article packs by the end of the year is good.  Regular Paypal payments, outside of affiliate programs, would be awesome.

Those are my only goals so far.  Although I’m sure the first one won’t change and is set in stone,  I’m not so sure about the second one.  I recently purchased a course that I still have to go through.  If it contains a method about how to make with money using Paypal that’s something I can duplicate, I might choose that option over launching my own store.  If not, I will focus on the store because I really want an income stream that pays me via Paypal on a regular basis — outside of an affiliate program.  We’ll have to wait and see.

What are your internet marketing goals for the upcoming year?
