Before you start your online business, it is a good idea to set your goals and priorities. You need to know what your goals are, because this will allow you to achieve success with your business. I am talking here about at least a few types of goals: short-term goals, long�term goals, and mid-range goals. Setting each one of them is important, as your short term goals will very often differ from your long-term goals. If you just started a business, you probably do not have high expectations in the beginning. Your short-term goals might be to attract a certain number of visitors to your website. As your website becomes more and more popular, you can expect more people to visit it. Remember to be realistic if you decide to set up your goals. Do not get discouraged if you do not meet your goals on time. If this happens, try to set them again.
