Motivation Monday Breakthrough: Map and Measure
Today’s Monday Morning Breakthrough with Kelly McCausey was all about Mapping and Measuring your business. Kelly asked the attendees two very important questions when it comes to our work at home businesses: 1) Do we know where we’re going and 2) Do we know how we are doing at getting there?
First of all, in order to succeed at anything you MUST have a goal, a target, something to aim at. Then you must know the steps you need to take in order to reach your goal. If you don’t have those two things in place now, sit down and think about them. Perhaps you need to make a certain amount of income in order to pay your bills. That could be your first goal. Once you reach that, then perhaps you have some debt you need to pay off; make that your second goal. Then once you’ve done that, make your next goal saving for retirement or buying a new house-whatever, make the goals your own and worth reaching.
Once you have your goals nailed down, you need to measure your progress as you work towards them. What tools do you need in order to measure your progress? If you own a blog or website, you need to track where your traffic is coming from, what got them there, what keywords they searched to find you, how long they stayed and what other pages on your site they visited. One of the tools Kelly recommended for this was Google Analytics.
