Writing SEO requires a bit of skill and also being competitive with yourself. It also requires discipline – knowing when to stop optimizing one site (or a section of a site) and move on to something new.
There is no greater way to achieve clarity about this then to figure out much money you need to make a month and then break it down into the daily and weekly sums you need to make. For instance if your overhead is $3,000 month including all expenses and you want to make a 50% profit with your business then you would have to make $4,500 a month or $150 a day.
Your next step is to sit down and look at all the different ways you have of making money as an SEO and go for it. Make sure to estimate in projected sales, membership conversions and how and when you expect this income to come flowing in.
In a nutshell, setting goals for yourself works, even if you are not a really accurate bookkeeper or project manager. Nobody sure why this works but it helps to set yourself a slightly higher goal every month and try to compete with yourself to elevate your income. Many gurus talk about how using this type of system effectively doubles one’s income in just a couple of a month.
For instance if I set myself a goal of $5,000 a month one month I almost always make near to that amount or at least a substantial amount more then what I was making even I don’t make that mark. There is truth to the saying that if you aim low you get low results. Of course this is also a form of positive thinking that applies to all businesses and not just SEO. The key is to shoot as high as possible in terms of your business goals and take it from there.
