If you aren’t a goal maker, what is holding you back? Fear of….. you can fill in that blank.
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.Michelangelo Buonarroti
My goal (pretty sneaky aren’t I?) in this post is to have you start making goals for yourself and your business. You probably make goals every day but possibly they aren’t work related. For instance: pick up the house, get dinner figured out, make sure everything is ready for the next day. I would also dare say you accomplish those mini-goals every day. So why not start making goals for your business, if you already haven’t?
Goal Ideas for the brand new blogger/ website owner:
- Write 3 post a week
- Open a Fan Page and share your posts manually for 1 week. (try to get 5 new fans)
- Exchange likes with 10 other fan page owners.
- Open a Twitter and tweet each post you write.
- Retweet 5 posts that are relevant to your area (or people you would like to follow and network with).
- Go to 5 sites and either Facebook share their post or Tweet it with their @handle in the tweet so they are notified that you did it. (this is how you start to network).
Goal Ideas the newer, but been around a few months or more blogger/website owner:
- Write 5 posts a week-if you don’t know what to write about? Find 0ther bloggers ( 3 out of the 5 days) that you would like to write about and post them as a Spot Light post.
- Swap Facebook Likes with 5 other people 3 days out of the 7
- Sit on Twitter and try to engage with others 10 minutes a day at least 5 days of the week.
- Comment on 5 other blogs each day for X amount of days. If you don’t have comment luv try to get that so you can leave a post link on 5 comment luv blogs. (there is a free and paid version).
These are ideas for the newer blogger/site owner but anyone can use them and tailor them to their needs. Although it seems like it is difficult to keep up with everything it is important to make a goal to network if you want to grow your blog/website/business; not just like a bunch of pages but actually visiting them and interacting with them. ( I myself need to work on this).
Networks to join/work towards interaction:
- Facebook (Fan pages) http://www.facebook.com (ok for those that might not know this..lol)
- Twitter http://www.twitter.com
- Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com
- Klout http://www.klout.com
- Stumbleupon http://www.stumbleupon.com
- Facebook groups in your interest area
- Triberr (you can request an invite in a group to their tribe)
These are just a few that come to mind at the moment. Look for my next post when I will go more in depth on Goals, how to track your goal, and more.
If what you are doing is not moving you towards your goals, then it’s moving you away from your goals. By Brian Tracy
