Just last week I shared a detailed 7 step process to create your unique success plan for the 2015 year. You see, the key is (if you haven’t already) to finalize your goals prior to the New Year so that you can begin on the 1st ready to rock and roll!!!
I recently came across an article that is actually catered to realtors but also found it appropriate for entrepreneurs. These 5 easy tips Wade shares indeed complements the unique success plan so I want to give those tips here (of course with my own spin to it), yet you are more than welcome to access the original source here.

5 Easy Tips to Implement for Your 2015 Business Goals
#1 Take your big goal and create smaller, realistic ones
If you’re like me, then perhaps you set grandiose goals that you totally believe you can make happen. You’ve got the faith, the excitement, and the determination.
Those thing are nice, but they key is to create a timeline where you are taking bit size chunks towards your goals. I like to break mine up into quarters (i.e. first quarter, Jan-Mar, second quarter, April-June, etc.) to help me reach my overall yearly vision. I start off small in quarter one, then I increase it based off of expected increase and momentum in my business.
#2 Get your email list in order
Your main objective this year is to be building your customer list. You want to always be cultivating your list by sending valuable email messages that speaks to your target audience. As you build rapport, it will be easier to sell with your promotional content.
#3 Leverage the power of video
Did you know that by 2017, 74% of content viewed on the Internet will be through video?!? This statistic alone should motivate you to incorporate video marketing into your strategy plan. You see, most people are scared to get in front of the camera, which is the perfect reason to start creating videos about your business and promoting you!!!!
There is a magical, powerful connection that is made with video that can’t be done anywhere else. Please don’t miss out on this potential gold mine for your business…it has helped me generate free quality leads while converting thousands in sales! Its worth it…

#4 Use your social networks for lifestyle marketing…not to pitch folks
This is one strategy that I plan on using in 2015. Honestly, I haven’t leverage social media (like Facebook) this past year as I’ve done in the past because my focus was on blogging and video marketing. However, I have become increasingly aware that my target market is roaming all over FB so my presence there is necessary to connect with ladies on this platform.
Keep in mind that social sites such as FB, Twitter, and Instagram are made to be engaging and interactive. It’s an awesome avenue to build your network and enhance relationships with your market. You can promote your biz from time to time but focus more on being responsive and showing the world more of who you are. This is how you get people to know, like and trust you!
#5 Get your own website…a blog!
If you are reppin’ the duplicated website that your company gives every distributor in your biz opp, you are doing it wrong. Your company has the power to take down your website at any moment because technically, it’s not yours.
Owning your blog which allows you to share value in your niche. A blog positions you as an authority, a go-to person, an expert in your industry. It’s pretty much your home on the World Wide Web. Don’t wander homeless on the Internet…get your self-hosted blog set up in 60 seconds (just like the one you’re on now) so you can begin to represent YOU…not your company.
