Daily Method of Operation Plan

Building an online home based might seem easy-peasy to some. Its probably why there is such mass appeal to being your own boss and creating your own schedule.


Truth is reporting to yourself is very hard. Especially after years and years at a traditional job has taught you to request assistance with any decision you make on the job. To be dependent on their leadership to make the right calls. So that type of hard-wiring doesn’t go away just because you called yourself a home business entrepreneur.

What most fail to realize is that you must create a strategic plan that allows you to show up for your business and get stuff done.

Enter stage left: Daily Method of Operation Plan (DMO Plan)!

As a Part-Time home business owner it’s important that you systematize your profit producing activities. A DMO Plan allows you to know exactly what you need to do to “keep the lights on” and to add new business.

One of my virtual mentors shared with me her DMO that has severed her for over a decade.

I want to share with you this type of DMO that has worked for me and as well as countless others.

One note of caution….

Don’t let the simplicity of the DMO Plan baffle you. Trust me it’s very complicated to create something so simple. And if it was complicated no one would do it. So we’re back at simple because simple works.

Communicate Like A Boss

There are 3 components to an effective DMO Plan and they all start with  communication. How you communicate with your audience displays your level of expertise and to be seen as a trusted advisor. Just like offline you want to come across confident in the same way you communicate online. Those finding your creative droplets online are searching for an answer and if you don’t express yourself in a cool cat manner, folks will pass right over your info not realizing it’s their saving grace.

Let’s hop into what your daily method of operation plan should be like in order to have home business success. #Leggo

  1. Communicate Through Content

How are you going to get all the yummy info you have been learning from your big’ ole brain to the eyes and ears of your ideal avatar? Content creation is how! You’ve got to simplify your knowledge so it can be easily understood by your audience. It’s also like you are curating through a plethora of content (programs, training’s, webinars, courses, ebooks, etc.) and bringing them the best of the best info. This is how you add value to your audience.

Doing this regularly will put you in an authority position in the marketplace with Google co-signing.

Suggested Primary Way of Communication: Your Blog

Other Ways: Videos, Articles, Webinars, Live Streams, Podcast, SlideShare, etc

  1. Communicate Through Connections

Everyone knows you are a smarty pants but how will your ideal avatar know that you accessible and relate-able? Making connections that’s how! Although the word connection is over played in the online space, there is nothing that can top a 1 to 1 communication on any level. So you will find interested groups and circles online. Scope out a few folks that you can relate too. Weather that’s on parenthood, career, background or favorite sports team. What’s important is to build rapport. Notice I didn’t say pitch, bug or bother your new connection. Business talk should be off the table. No weird Internet marketing talk either. If you wouldn’t say it in real life don’t say it online.

You should be making at least 10 connections per day. Again, No Bueno on the pitchfest but only focus on “get-to-know-them” conversations.

Suggested Primary Way of Communication: Facebook Newsfeed

Other Ways: Facebook Pages & Groups, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc 

  1. Communicate Through Copy

How in the world will your audience know about your spunky personality and that weird story of that one time when you were at band camp? Email marketing that’s how! You better act like you know that Email is the #1 social media platform out there. People stay responding to email notifications on their phone. Email is a portal to a private space that is by invite only. Violate that and you get sent to the block party. Your goal with email is to share insightful thoughts, stories and experiences based on your content or what you are promoting. You could also do non-promotional emails that are motivational, reflective, audience love notes and of lessons learned. This is how you make a deep connection that solidifies the know, like and trust factor.

You should email daily or have a set schedule so your audience knows when to look out for you in their inbox.

Suggested Primary: Your Email Autoresponder

Other Ways: Facebook  Ads, Groups, Notes, Instagram, Twitter, etc

Freedom Tip: You can have a DMO Plan for every area of your life: Spiritual, Health, Relationships, & Biz/Career (BOOM!!)


Can’t talk about DMO without talking about being consistent. Just to give you some #truthiness here, over the course of my business I have been hit and miss with Consistency. As I write this post, I know for sure that I am way off from being consistent. I’ve struggled with it for a good hot minute. But I know it’s important and it’s the glue that bonds the connection to me and my audience. So I know that I’ve got to check myself in this area and make sure that I’m taking action on my own advice. #PreachingToMyself

As for you, in order for your DMO Plan to work you have to be very intentional. If you know me I’m all about being #OnPurpose. You simply have to decide that you will follow your DMO when you say you will. You may be trying to create home business success on a part-time schedule and that perfectly fine. But don’t short change yourself and the momentum you have already built by being lazy and not showing up one too many times. #AskMeHowIKnow!  By doing your communication activities regularly you will be serving others while growing yourself and your business.
