Going with prior preparation definitely brings good results. Always make sure that you have to move with strategical planning, for that you need to work step by step. There are some factors that I noticed in almost all of the most successful affiliate websites in the blogosphere.
FACTORS THAT YOU SHOULD ENSURE
- Specific goal setting
- Right niche for your website

- Analyze how you can be the best one in the competition
Specific goal setting – goals are the rough drawing of your ideas, you should have a clear and basic picture in your mind about your plans, you need to set goals which are specific, measurable, and timely. And if you have not decided anything then you can easily loose track. Your goals should have some qualities like:
Your goal should be specific
It is measurable
Always figure out what you have accomplished in your overall sales at the end of every single day, and if achieved the number to hit your goal then hit your back and move to the next with the same planning, and if not getting the things done then at least choose a way that will help you to achieve your goal next time, here you can also go with the divided goals into small ways which are mentioned below;

That you have planned in your daily basis goals. So this is way how you can figure out about your profit on daily basis.
WEEKLY GOALS – now you need to set the weekly goals to hit your monthly goals, ask yourself what you need to do every week to accomplish the set goals .Revise at the end of every week that how much improvement you have made in the week otherwise you’ll easily lose your sight on long term goals. Increase in sales and loss count will help you to know about your strengths and drawbacks.

YEARLY GOALS – setting of yearly goals is easy but it’s hard to achieve (for example, reaching to $4000 to $5000 a month in affiliate commission within a year) here you can feel the need to divide your yearly goals into quarterly ,monthly and weekly goals to easily manage the sales profit . Without the goals you cannot make the things happen, and increase in sales.
Goals are the basis for your every implementation and through its revision you can easily compare your achievements in a week, in a month and in a year. Only mistakes and failures are the evidences that you are making efforts, work with patience and consistency and you will definitely get results.
