It’s tough to know how things will pan out and maybe a lot of what I write here will fall by the wayside, but I think it’s important to get some thoughts and goals down in writing.
At the very least I will be more likely to achieve goals if I make the effort to recognize what I want to achieve, so here goes…
Grow my ECommerce brand
Currently my ECommerce brand is doing well. It is a constant struggle with stock levels and competitors making it a race to the bottom, but that is the world of selling on Amazon.
To keep it brief I want to:
- Add at least 3 new [regular] products to my range
- Grow my website visitor numbers and communities (email list, social channels)
There are more things I want to achieve but these are the main two.
I want to add more regular content around starting and running online businesses. I want to grow visitor numbers to my website around these topics.
I want to do a lot more videos around making money online. I want to get into live video and look to get on platforms such as Facebook Live video and YouTube Live Video (maybe Instagram and/or Snapchat too?).
Really I want to grow a reputation and audience around starting and running online businesses. I will focus on the things I have experience in. I will look at membership/subscription services along with one-off services related to this area.
I will optimize the Earn1000 course on-boarding process and get as many people as possible to take it. I am happy with the quality of the course and I just need to figure out the best way to market it and to get as many people as possible to sign up to it.
I will also look to create more courses related to affiliate websites and starting an ECommerce brand. This is what I have done myself and continue to do, so I know what to teach and I feel I explain things well to people that have no prior knowledge. I will therefore aim my course(s) at total beginners.
Selling in Japan
I have recently started selling in Japan and this is a business/service I want to grow in 2017. I will look to get the current product selling profitably and then see how to continue selling this product along with more products. These will either be my current UK products or other peoples products.
I may also look at add a service here to help others launch and sell in Japan.
I have 4 or 5 affiliate websites I really want to grow. My wife will hopefully join the business and her role will be to grow these websites purely by adding regular keyword targeted content. I may also launch more affiliate websites.
There you go, quite a lot there but those are the things on my mind. There are others such as my software platform that I am working on with a business partner, but this is a slow burner and I am happy to let this pan out at its own pace and don’t have plans to push it aggressively. But you never know, it make gather some pace in 2017.
Most of my goals are just progressing what I already have. The main shift will be this website, neilcurtis.me. I really want to turn it into a platform to show off what I do and help others achieve the same. I want to motivate people to start and to continue doing something online.
I want to offer free and paid things here, and in 2017 I expect this to become clearer.
