Business Goals for 2016
As I look toward this new year, I'm dragging a lot of baggage left from 2015. I still have rooms full of books to dispose of. We still have not finished getting our affairs in order. These projects are following me into the new year.
Professionally I have two goals 2016.
1. Develop my blogs into a real business that produces real income.
2. Develop my Zazzle business and promote it more.
These goals are related, since I can use blogs to promote Zazzle. I am also learning to make more money with my affiliate selling in a new online course I purchased. It has two supporting private Facebook groups that provide a place to share tips, discuss how we can improve our blogs, and ask questions that come up as we learn from the course.
I don't expect the results the teacher gets, but I'd be happy to make a small fraction of the over $50,000 she earned from Amazon in just December of this year. I have worked hard in the past, but not smart. I want to work smart so I can at least replace the income I used to get from Bubblews and HubPages. It took me six months to finally get enough for HubPages to pay me at the end of December. It usually takes me around six months to get to my Zazzle threshold, as well. I make more on Zazzle's affiliate program than on Amazon's.
You will probably not be seeing me much here this year except to comment. I have to spend more time trying to get my image from a Pixabay interface that doesn't work half the time and fighting the captcha or having to save as draft in order to post than it takes me to write the post in the first place. Maybe I'm the only one having these issues, but I just don't have the time to deal with them when I could be spending that time on blogs that make more money for me. I need the income. If for any reason the owners lose complete interest and take this site down, you can always find me at barbsbooks or at my business page there, BarbsPeopleBuilders , which I pay more attention to. I'm also at G+ under my own name, Barbara Radisavljevic. I'd love to connect to you all there so we can keep in touch if we can't here. If we connect we can always PM to trade email addresses. It's good to connect on other social networks anyway because we can help each other out.
What are you planning to make your writing pay more this year from the effort you put into it?
