Online Goals this March
They say goal setting is a good thing. It generally keeps us focused on getting the "right" things done. It also gives us a sense of accomplishment whenever we hit a mark in a given span of time. That is why for this month, I'd like to set small milestones for myself. This will hopefully push me to improve on my social networking and SEO skills (which I know so little of, haha!).
I'm hoping I can achieve some of these so I can move on to higher goals for the succeeding months.
Social Media Network Goals
If you're a blogger like me, you would agree that blogging isn't just about writing posts. It's more than just updating you're blogs, too. If you simply love to write, then perhaps that is enough. However, in order to benefit financially from blogging, a blogger must learn the following, at the least.
- how to create valuable contents (Content is always king, as many would say)
- SEO techniques
- online marketing to promote blog posts
In fact, over the year I've learned that Twitter and Facebook are more than just programs to shout out what we feel so our relatives and friends can read our joys, rants or whatnots. I've learned that these social media are effective tools which we can use to our advantage, particularly in promoting online.
As of now, I have over 3,000 followers in Twitter and nearly 500 followers in Pinterest. My Facebook fanpage has over 3000 followers, as well. (I just checked, haha! Yay me!) This month of March, my earnest goals on my social networks are these:
- Twitter followers: 5,000
- Pinterest: 1,000
- Cooking Like a Pro Facebook Fanpage: 5,000
I have been with Hubpages for (OMG!) 2 years, already! In truth, I've been in and out of the system. I was happy earning a few cents daily in this site. However, I feel the tendency to challenge myself into a race of sorts in my Hubpages stay. I know some of the writers here in Hubpages earn a decent amount every month. I figured, if they can do it... well, I suppose I can, too.
No! Scratch that! If they can do it. Well, I most certainly can do good in Hubpages,too.
And so, my goals for this month of March for Hubpages are:
- Total earnings for the month: $50.00
- Total hubs written: 10 hubs (start point is 64 hubs)
- Page views per day: 500 views
Hmm... I have not monitored my hubs stats, ever. Now, I will take a closer look at how I am really doing with Hubpages. I'll see whether these simple goals are doable for me. (I hope they are!)
Stay tuned next month when I reveal whether these goals were met or not. :)
