I know I haven’t been posting here much lately and I have good reason. Besides the fact my 2 kids keep me busy at every free moment (which I wouldn’t trade for anything), I have been diligently learning the affiliate marketing game. In the coming days I will share with you the single greatest resource you can have if you are serious about making money with PPC online. It is simply the best and has helped me in motivating me to set my goals.

I feel that goal setting is as effective as it gets, if you don’t set goals your will never achieve them. And even more so, if you post your goals for others to see you have made a commitment even greater than to yourself to achieve them! With that said, here are my PPC goals for upcoming 6 months:

I think they might be a bit modest considering what I am currently learning, but I want to start realistically. Hopefully in a month or two I will update this post and completely revise my goals upwards

Working backwards to forwards, my goal is to reach $5000 per month net profit. I want to do this at the end of 6 months. So if I set a start date of December 1st for this goal, I want to make a $5000 profit for the month of May 2008. I also am going to assume a modest 50% ROI to begin and get that up to 75% by May 2008. While this sounds insane in the normal investing world, 100% ROI is extremely likely. This is based on my current knowledge which should increase as I learn more. Again, hopefully I can revise these goals upwards in a month or two.

Using my newfound knowledge for 14 days now these are the numbers I have been able to attain.

Total Conversions: $481.85
Total Cost: $288.32
Total Profit: $193.53 (a 67% ROI!)

At this pace without doing anything else (starting more campaigns, learning more, etc.), I should profit ~$340 this month. Of course, I plan on increasing this as much as possible!

So here are my goals broken down by month. Hopefully by May 2008 I will have reached my goal!

I would love to hear your goals too.  Please feel free to post in the comments!
