How To Power Up With Simple Goal Setting

When it comes to setting goals for your online business growth, it's vital you know exactly what you want to achieve first - your vision - BEFORE you start creating your ultimate wish list of things to get done this year.

That's where, in my experience, most business owners go wrong - they just don't set their goals within the wider context of what they are actually trying to achieve and what they are passionate about long term. 

It leads to your goals feeling a bit pointless or unachievable ...and when you feel like that about the goals you've set, more often than not, you shrug your shoulders and ignore them, pretending you didn't set them in the first place! 

Sounds familiar right? We've all done it...

So it's time to get back to basics and power up your online business performance by starting with a simple goal setting process you will actually stick with!

This session will take you through some steps on how to achieve more with your email list.

Segmenting your email list

If you want better open rates and higher conversions, then you should segment your email list. Segmenting your list involves splitting your email list into smaller ‘segments’ or groups. It allows you to send out tailored, targeted emails to your list. This then creates higher engagement and less unsubscribe statistics.

You can segment your email list by;

What is Conversion Rate? Why It’s an Important Measure of Online Business Success

Conversion rate is an important term when it comes to business success, but we are talking Ecommerce success - and not about your travel money conversion rates from dollars to pounds! 

What is a Conversion Rate?

For online business owners, the most common instance and most basic explanation of conversion rate is the percentage of people who come to your website and buy goods or services.

Your conversion rate is the percentage of visitors to your website that complete a desired goal (a conversion) out of the total number of visitors. A high conversion rate is indicative of successful marketing and web design: It means people want what you're offering, and they're easily able to get it!
