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

Here is my month in review for August 2016 for my blog and my MLM Business.

August is historically one of my slowest months of the year, along with June and July.

That being said, I realize every business has cycles, ups and downs.

I take the long-term view and stay the course.

My Goals for August 2016

Here were my goals for August 2016.

I have them broken down into two categories: one for my blog and one for my MLM Business.

I set specific goals each month so I have something to aim for.

My Blog

  • Publish 31 new blog posts
  • Publish 31 podcasts
  • Send weekly training email to list every Wednesday and Friday
  • Send out 31 handwritten notes
  • Revise/Edit blog posts for April, May, June and July 2016
  • Leave 62 blog comments
  • Add 500 comments to my blog

My Primary MLM Company

  • Personally sponsor 6 new reps
  • Qualify for Fast Start Bonus

My Daily Mode of Operation for August 2016:

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

  • Publish one new blog post per day (seven days a week)
  • Publish one podcast per day (seven days a week)
  • Post 3-5 updates in my Facebook Mastermind Group per day (seven days per week)
  • Send training email to my list every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • Follow up with new leads daily by phone, SKYPE or email every day
  • Mail out one hand written note per day (seven days a week)
  • Leave two blog comments per day (seven days a week)
  • Read for 30 to 60 minutes per day (seven days per week)
  • Communicate with 2 team members every day (five days per week)

*** On average, this takes me about two hours per day to accomplish (not counting the reading).

Final Thoughts

Financially, August was a spectacular month, even though the websites weren’t overly busy or productive.  I had a few big ticket sales that made up the difference.  I’m excited about what September 2016 has in store.

  2. Hi Charles great blog!

    Although i was expecting an income report ( with a disclamer obviously) . I know a few in this blogging space do it including Pat Flynn of SPI.

    • I don’t share my income since I consider it a private matter. Sorry.
