Has 2007 Been a Good Year for your Business?

It's New Year's Eve, or Hogmany as we call it here in Scotland. Before I venture out to celebrate the bells or the arrival of 2008 I am reflecting for a few moments on the successes of 2007.

I prefer to look forward rather than back, but it is always good to reflect a little bit and take pride in your successes.

I decided to do a little bit of looking back on my internet business revenue over the last two years. I checked my spreadsheets and compared each month of 2007 with the same month in 2008. I am pleased to say that I hadn't actually realised just how much my business has grown over the last year. My revenue for each month in 2007 exceeded the revenue of 2006 by an average of 50%. In some months I actually made 100% more than I did in the same month of 2006, but the average was 50%.

I also quit my day job in May of 2007 and on a personal note, got married in October of this year, so it has been quite a good year.

I am not a fan of new year's resolutions, but my main business goal of 2008 will be to increase my monthly revenue by at least 50% by mid 2008.

I can now head out to my party in Edinburgh feeling good about the achievements of 2007 and looking forward to an even better year in 2008!

PPP - Pay Per Play - a new way to make money from your website

You will have no doubt heard of PPC which stands for "pay per click" (e.g. Google Adsense) and perhaps PPA, which is pay per action, but what PPP, which stands for "Pay Per Play".

This is a brand new way of advertising and a great way for webmasters or bloggers to make money from their website or blog. It is similar to TV advertising or radio advertising and is launching in February 2008.

Basically it allows advertisers to get their 5 second audio ads played on a huge number of targeted websites around the world. For us webmasters and bloggers it allows us to earn money on 100% of our website traffic as we will receive a payment for every audio ad that is played on our site.

The ads are short (5 seconds), will be related to the content of your website and they will only be played once per visitor.

If you would like to learn more you can sign up for pay per play ads now and get ready for the launch in February 08.

Review of Success University

I no longer promote Success University. Shortly after they merged with World Ventures, a travel MLM opportunity I decided to cancel my membership.

If you are looking for a membership that provides excellent online training, a step by step
action plan, videos, monthly bonuses and online coaching I highly recommend joining
the Niche Power Group.

It is half the monthly cost of Success University/World Ventures and you can make a 50% recurring commission.

You can Try the Niche Power Group for just $4.95
