I realised something I am doing is setting a goal for each month. A target I want to hit. For instance this month my target was to make $10,000 and November my target is $30,000+.
I am thinking about what I did to make $10,000 this month, if I just repeat that step five times I could possibly end up hitting $50k in a month. It’s highly unlikely that all campaigns have the same success BUT it’s possible that my new campaigns do just as well or better. It’s also a possibility that I could make less than $10k next month but we don’t want to think like that!
The funny thing is I realised that I am moving my focus onto the next goal. What I mean is, as soon as November hits my actions from October will fall into motion and all my thoughts will be moved to hitting my $100k goal in December. For example as soon as October hit, other than running t-shirt ads for my current campaigns all my work has been directed at making money in November. Until writing this I haven’t even reflected on the achievements of this month about how good my first launch went.
In September I followed the course and was setting up myself for success in October. I launched just one t-shirt this month and I have generated $9500 in revenue. I haven’t hit my $10,000 with t-shirts alone. I got close and it’s not bad for running just one t-shirt. Previously following the Teespring method of other marketers I would have had to work ten times as hard launching five or more campaigns a day!
So what have I been doing this month to prepare for success in November? I can’t disclose much because I have paid money to learn this “blueprint”. This month I saw what worked in one niche and so I setup four new niches. With the help of my VA I have built them all up to a level to repeat the success I had with my first niche. That’s it.
I have worked out what works. Now it’s a process of scaling and repeating what works. My plan is to carry on outsourcing as much as possible because I think the more I outsource the quicker I can scale! Before I know if November will pay off for me I am going to scale out to ten more niches. There’s a possibility I could spend all my money and not get it back but luckily I am in a position where I can afford to do it and I am going to take advantage of it.
Right now I am in the process of waiting for my designer to come back with my new t-shirts for November. This is why I have time to stop and write this post. The new t-shirts will be completed within three days and I will be launching them on November 1st. I will have an update on this blog on the 10th of November and we will know if my efforts have paid off or not.
I Have Shot Myself In The Foot!
I realised this month I have shot myself in the foot again like I did on my $10k goal. It’s Rachael’s 30th birthday on the 21st of November which will limit how much I can prepare for my $100k goal in December. The whole month will be one big celebration. Also my sister is moving house and I will be gone for a couple of days to help out there too. I didn’t think of this before setting the goal! I need to take massive action early in November before the big birthday date comes around. I will not be working much after the 21st. I am not complaining, it’s more of a uh-oh hard work and a big month ahead feeling. It’s actually good to know I have a big month ahead because I like the challenge. I hate getting to the end of a day and feeling like I wasted it doing nothing.
November I will have five niches selling t-shirts. In December I plan on having 15 niches up and ready to roll out t-shirts. That’s 10 more niches to build from scratch in November! It’s going to be a hard feat to pull off but it’s going to be a fun process.
Remember the date November 10th, I will make an update of my new campaigns and we’ll see if I am having a good month or not. In fact the success of these campaigns will make or break me reaching the $100k goal. I’ll need the financial backing and without it I can’t reach an audience of buyers. See you on the 10th of November!
