August Goals | Blogging, Social Media Marketing, & Online Work

I can't believe it is August, but it is time to share some goals that I have set for myself for this month. I hope to accomplish all of them and be able to grow more as a blogger as well as a virtual assistant.

So here are my goals for this month.

Online Work

Obtain at least 4 clients this month.

So this is going to be my first month of heavily marketing myself. I am hoping that I can put myself out there and be of service to people. I am already nervous about it and feeling uneasy about it, but it has to be done.

Hire Me As a Pinterest Virtual Assistant

Network myself to at least 100 people a week to gain clients.

My goal is to market myself to 100 people a week whether I do it via email, Facebook, or other types of interaction. 

Setup a Fiverr account.

I am thinking that Fiverr will be the way to go for setting up payments and such. That way I won't have to worry about creating invoices myself. So hopefully it all works out.

Blog Goals

Create at least 7 blog posts this month.

Last month I posted 7 times and I am hoping to do it again this month. I want to focus on writing more in comparison to sharing other people's content this month though.

Market blog posts on social media.

I have gotten better at marketing my content, especially on Pinterest. I am hoping I can reach a decent amount of people. My goal is to reach about 26,000 sessions this month. So hopefully it all works out.

Here are my Pinterest stats for July.

1st week of July on Pinterest

The first week was my best week of pushing forward content. I pinned 316 times which was great.

2nd week of July on Pinterest

I slacked off a bit for the next week. I only posted 177 times, but my repins increase a bit.

3rd week of July on Pinterest

I was so happy when I saw the increase of repins to 4,229. 

4th week of  July on Pinterest

I was even more ecstatic when I had 5,276 repins. This is the most repins I have ever had in a week on Pinterest.

In July I pinned 882 pins, received 16,380 repins, and gained 518 followers.

I currently have 3196 Pinterest followers.

Pinterest Goals

Pin at least 1000 times this month.

Pin at least 300 photos from my website.

Gain at least 600 new followers.

Twitter Growth - Pop Culture Page

My Twitter Stats for my pop culture page were pretty good. My tweet impressions are extremely high which I love.

Twitter follower growth

I receive a ton of engagement on my Twitter page because people with similar interests engage with me and I engage with them heavily. I want to build a connection with them where they see that I am an average person. I have 1320 followers on that account or at least I did last night. I think I gained 3 more followers, but I am including them in my following growth for August.

Twitter Growth - Lifestyle Twitter

I created this Twitter page in the second week of July. It wasn't a full month of growth, but it was pretty cool to have acquired so many followers in a short amount of time considering I was starting from 0. So far I haven't engaged that much on it. I just retweet other people's content.

Twitter Goals

Gain at least 400 new followers on both Twitter.

I am hoping I can do this. I kind of want to change it to 300 followers, but I have a strong feeling I can reach 400 people who would be interested in the topics I discuss on both pages in a month.

Engage on both Twitter accounts.

I interact with my followers on my pop culture page since they heavily engage with me, but on the lifestyle page it is much more difficult to engage. So I figure I'll have to reach out to other people on that page in particular.

Post more of my own content on both accounts.

I have been sharing other people's content and not really my own. This is something that I have to do for sure so I can show that I have something of value to contribute.
