Understand Your Current Revenue

Set Goals for Revenue Growth

Now that you have a good understanding of where you’re at in terms of revenue, begin to set goals for the future.

Make sure your goals are big enough to matter, but also achievable.

Start by setting a three-year goal and then breaking it down into more manageable monthly targets. Your monthly target will serve as an average – some months will generate more revenue than others, and that’s okay.


Create a Revenue Plan

Once you know where you are and where you’re headed, it’s time to create a comprehensive plan for growing revenue. Take into account each of your market’s strengths and weaknesses before creating targets for each campaign.
