April 2016 Month in Review for My MLM Business and MLM Blog

Here is my month in review for April 2016 for my OnlineMLMCommunity.com blog and my MLM Business.  I like to share my results with you each month to be transparent and to show you what is and what isn’t working in my own business. Publishing my results also keeps me accountable to my readers, which I enjoy.

April was an interesting month for me.  I spent a lot of time helping my team members and a LOT of time working on my other businesses that I own.  I also had to liquidate an estate for a friend on eBay so that took up most of my time.  That being said, I did continue to work my network marketing and blogging business about an hour a day, every day.

I also started my third consecutive 90-day challenge, with a small group of people.  My revenue for my blog was near an all time high, so it was still a very profitable month.  I think May will be even better.

My Goals for April 2016

Here were my goals for April 2016.  I have them broken down into two categories: one for my blog and one for my MLM Business.  I believe that setting clear, written goals is very important if you want to be successful.

My Blog

  • Publish 26 new blog posts
  • Publish 26 podcasts
  • Send weekly training email to list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Leave 20 blog comments on other blogs
  • Send out 60 handwritten notes
  • Redo 26 posts

My Primary MLM Company

  • Personally sponsor 6 new reps
  • Do training call every Sunday night

My Daily Mode of Operation for April 2016:

This was my daily game plan to build my business in April 2016:

  • Publish one new blog post per day, Monday through Saturday
  • Publish one podcast per day, Monday through Saturday
  • Post 3-5 updates in my Facebook Mastermind Group every day
  • Send training email to my list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Follow up with new leads daily by phone, SKYPE or email every day
  • Mail out two hand written notes every day
  • Read for 30 minutes per day
  • Communicate with 2 team members every day

*** On average, this takes me about 90-minutes to two hours per day to accomplish.
