I’ve never shared this with you before, so I hope you find it interesting.
When I started Jim’s Marketing Blog, my goal was to help a million small business owners. After I achieved a million unique visitors, I needed a new goal. I decided to help as many small business owners as I could.
The challenge with that goal, is that it was too ambiguous. You can’t measure how close you are to a number that doesn’t exist.
So, last month I decided to set another numeric goal. An inspiring goal. A motivating goal.
The 25 million
I decided that I want to help 25 million small business owners and freelancers. I want to provide them with free marketing and business development ideas and advice.
I especially want to provide free help to those who are unable to afford the expert marketing assistance they need.
25 million is a big number. It’s an exciting number too. It’s also a number I will need a little help with.
As I don’t bother much with SEO (it bores me and I refuse to write like a robot), I have always relied on readers who find my work useful, sharing it with their friends. You have been massively more effective than any search engine, at helping me to help more people.
I just wanted to give you the inside story on what inspires me… as I figure out how on earth I’m going to help 25 millions small business owners,
If you want to help, carry on sharing anything you find interesting here.
I’d also like to thank you if you’re already linking to the blog or sharing it with your friends. Between us, I believe 25 million is absolutely achievable.
So, now you know why I write an ad free blog, with no affiliate links, which costs me thousands each month to produce.
