Today we are going to be sharing our goals for 2016. This will be a bit of a continuation from Episode 73 where we talked about the top 5 things we’re doing to plan for 2016. We also talk about how we are using ideas from John Lee Dumas and his Freedom Journal.
- My number one goal was to get LeadFuze to 25K MRR (monthly recurring revenue). I hit 30K MRR by the end of the year. Success!
- My business goal for 2016 was going to be 100K MRR by the end of the year, but things have changed. I am shutting down the done for you service and focusing on software revenue.
- My number one goal for LeadFuze in 2016 is to get software revenue to 84K MRR. Breaking it down and working backwards, here are my monthly goals.
- December 84K
- November 76K
- October 67K
- September 58K
- August 50K
- July 42K
- June 35K
- May 29K
- April 13K
- March 18K
- February 13K
- January 9K
2016 Personal Goals:
- Eat healthier (which is convenient because my wife’s goal is to cook healthier)
- Exercise more
- My goal for Mobile Marketing Engine was 20K MRR, the highest hit was 7K MRR. In late August I completely shifted my business to System.ly, where I am a little over 11K MRR. The first business didn’t meet the goal, but the second one is halfway there.
- My goal for my done for you service is to get to 30K MRR, but I am breaking down my goal into monthly subscriber goals, instead of revenue. Doing the math and including churn rates and different price plans, I would like to get 4 new customers a month to meet or exceed revenue goals.
- Even with the subscriber goals we will constantly be evolving and trying to get subscribers for the higher priced plans. We will probably need 8-10 discovery calls per month or 2-3 per week.
- We also want to create a more streamlined repeatable system, probably Facebook ads to a sales funnel or webinar, and a strong referral system.
- Secondary part of goal is to make 5K MRR with membership site. This site is designed to serve existing customers, and attract new customers who may be originally looking for a DIY solution.
- The goal would be met with 50 people a month. I am hoping to start adding about 8 new people a month. Doors for this program open on April 1st.
2016 Personal Goals:
- Go to yoga four times a week
- Track with Way of Life App
- End year with no credit-card debt
