Today I would like to talk about your plans for 2020. I mean with your business ambitions not your personal ones, though they are important too.
Planning for 2020
Okay, we are at the start of a new decade, are we in a better position than we were at the start of the last decade? Have things changed for you in those 10 years? Perhaps that is why you are interested in building an online business so you can change your circumstances. What figure would put you in a great position financially?
Are you looking to work from home and give up the daily commute to work? Maybe you just want an extra $100 a week to supplement your income from your job. Whatever your plans are for 2020 you need to put a plan into action.
Having a plan and a goal are vital in any business. You need to plan how you are going to achieve your goals and then take the steps needed to realize these goals.
You Need To Be Realistic
You need to be realistic in your goals, are they achievable say in the next 12 months? If you are aiming to quit your job by this time next year what do you need to do to get into that position? It’s all questions that need to be answered before you move forward.
Write your goals down and keep them near your computer so you see them all the time. This will help keep you focused on what you are trying to achieve.
Just remember everything is achievable, if you put the effort into your business you will see the results. The more effort you put in the better the results. I know this is obvious but you will be surprised how some people put in a little effort and when they get no results they give up.
That is what I need to stress to you never give up. I have done this in the past and regretted giving up on my dreams because I came to an obstacle I thought I could not overcome. If you ever get stuck on anything get in touch with me and I will try to help you overcome your obstacles. If I don’t know the answer I will try my best to find you a solution to your problem.

Time To Take Action
Now you have your goals written down it is time to make a plan of action. This is a vital part and something that held me back for years. I was taking action but in the wrong way, writing blogs daily etc.. was just not working for me. Even though I was doing this consistently I never seemed to make progress.
What was wrong is I never had a sales funnel in place to start seeing results from my efforts in driving traffic to my blog. I now know what held me back for so long. The thought of putting a funnel together was very scary as you probably are finding out. It can be very daunting to say the least.
Your First Sales Funnel
So if you take anything from this blog post today it is that you need a sales funnel in place before you send anyone to your blog. Yes, it takes a bit of work at the beginning, but once it is in place your only job then is to drive traffic to your blog posts where your sales funnel is in place to get your visitors to leave their details and therefore enter your sales funnel.
You are now building a list, which any marketer will tell you is where your business really takes off. But because you have a sales funnel in place you can start to build buyers lists which is what you are striving for, people who are willing to spend money for the information you can provide for them. This applies in any niche.
How Do I Build A Sales Funnel?
The first thing you now know you need in place is a sales funnel. Before you do anything else get this in place first. It will be the backbone of your business for years to come. There are of course all sorts of sales funnels being used by internet marketers today. From the beginners funnel with just one product to sell to the guru funnels with about 4 or 5 different products to sell. You see them all the time and I would imagine you have seen a few yourself if you have been trying to start a business online for any length of time.
Now if you think you cannot ever see yourself in a position to have the knowledge to start your first sales funnel, you are wrong. You will be happy to know I have a video course that will show you exactly what you need to get started and begin your online adventure starting today! It is going for a massive discount today, just for visitors to my blog!

I wish all the best for 2020, make this the year you finally make the breakthrough.
