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

Here is my month in review for July 2016 for my OnlineMLMCommunity.com blog and my MLM Business.

You should know upfront that I am a numbers guy.

Many of you already know that.

I track EVERYTHING in my business.

If you can’t track it you don’t know what’s working, what isn’t working and what you can improve upon.

I believe that every business owner should keep a close eye on the numbers to monitor their business growth.

I post these results on my blog to stay accountable to myself and my website visitors.

I say none of this to brag.

Instead, I want to show you what is possible when you are persistent and consistent.

You should also know that July is historically my slowest month of the year for ALL of my businesses.

People are on vacation, kids are out of school, people are getting married, or are spending time at the beach.

Simply put, they are away from the internet and enjoying life (good for them).

My website traffic for both my websites slows down a lot in the summer.

It’s just a normal business cycle.

Despite the slowdown, I still had a great month.

My Goals for July 2016

Here were my goals for July 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 21 new blog posts
  • Publish 21 podcasts
  • Send weekly training email to list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Send out 31 handwritten notes
  • Revise/Edit 21 posts
  • Leave 21 blog comments
  • Create 21 YouTube videos
  • Do 21 Facebook live videos

My Primary MLM Company

  • Personally sponsor 4 new reps

My Daily Mode of Operation for July 2016:

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

  • Publish one new blog post per day, Monday through Friday
  • Publish one podcast per day, Monday through Friday
  • Post 3-5 updates in my Facebook Mastermind Group every day

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

Top 5 Most Popular Posts/Pages on My Blog in July 2016

Here were the top five most visited blog posts and pages on my website in July 2016:

  2. Top 50 MLM Companies of All Time

  1. Elite Marketing Pro

  1. Wow Chuck, you wouldn’t know by your blog stats that July was a slow month…great job!!

    I was just curious what stat system you use to get all, these figures. Is it a plug-in or just WordPress Stats?

    I was also looking at your reading list and I have heard of most of the books, except The Secret. Was it a good book? Will you do a review on it?

    Again, I thank you for sharing these stats, because it can help me set some goals for my blog / website. I wish you great luck this month, but I don’t think it is luck so much as it is skill of being a good writer and teacher.

    • I use Google Analytics for my stats. I have an Excel spreadsheet that I update on the first of each month for the previous month. It takes about 30 minutes to do, but it is well worth it.
