7 Steps To Help You Achieve Your Blogging Goals

Productivity can be a frustrating thing especially looking back at it.

You wanted to be focused, you had all these goals and you had a vision of what your ideal working day looked like. Productivity systems A to Z. In the real world with so much to do, being overwhelmed has become the norm.

In reality if you are honest with yourself , too  much time spent on social media. Too much time spent doing busywork. Too much procrastination. It’s possible that you’re blaming yourself for something that isn’t really your fault….

Most people try to achieve their blogging goals along with their day jobs  at first, so that someday they can live their dream of a full time blogging life. Everyone has an unique writing style, because everyone is an individual. Finding what works for you has become elusive.

  Steps To Help You Achieve Your Blogging Goals

1.Your Brand“The process involved in creating a unique name and image for a product in the consumers’ mind. Mainly through advertising campaigns using a consistent theme. Branding aims to establish a significant and  your own differentiated presence in the market that attracts and retains loyal customers.”-  Business Dictionary

Your Brand Is All About Everything You Do In Your Business:– your consistency (followers like to be able to find you on a regular basis)- your authenticity (no one else is quite like you, with unique content)- your core values ( prospective clients engaging with your content)- your professionalism ( writing skill expected of a professional blogger)

2. What Is Your Content Marketing?Your blogging goals are a way to become recognized with ideal customers by producing and the publication of great information that builds trust in relationships. You know – “That Know, Like and Trust factor.” KLT. Content shapes long-term connections between brands and consumers. Content-led by Social Media planning campaigns.

If you have already mastered the basics of Content Marketing, such as starting a blog or making videos or podcasts, then you know what content marketing is about. If you want to take success online to the next level: use actionable tactics that you can put to work such as…

3. Social Media  is valuable for blogging. Blogging goals are all about when, where, why, and how. To do all this you should be firmly anchored in your blog’s priorities. Make sure your social activity maps (where you share) tied to your buyer personas. If you’re a B2B brand, you’re likely going to be spending a lot of time on LinkedIn. If you’re a lifestyle brand, it’s probably going to be more on Pinterest, Facebook, or Instagram. You will never see crafts on LinkedIn or whitepapers on Pinterest.

Some people are more visual, while others like to read. We all have different learning styles. Re-purpose your  content to reach your audience on their own platform of preference. For example, take your most popular blog post and turn it into a  video. I use Thrive Themes for much of my work online now. If you are not familiar with them visit the link.

It’s important to get that mix of Social Media marketing correct. Where does your target audience hang out? Master one social platform at a time and then move and learn another. It’s quality, not quantity that rules Social Media.

“The secret to getting started is breaking your complex & overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks and then starting on the first one.” ~Mark Twain

4. Advice  – Get a Mentor The biggest thing that kept me blogging and growing this year has been having a mentor. Shane Melaugh creator of Thrive Themes. Very successful team of marketers from Switzerland. You can join the pre-launch of Shane’s upcoming course.

There are many ups and downs in the blogging world. Plenty of moments when I just did not feel like my motivation was strong enough. But my mentor has helped me through many mindset challenges and blogging struggles.

Most people do not understand the online world or blogging. Marketing with funnels, blog posting and products are foreign to them. Having that system that can support you,  is just perfect. My suggestion to you is to start the new year and join a marketing system such as Thrive Themes.

5. How To Find a Productivity System

Focus and Action

New Productivity System Principals  In New Training with THRIVE THEMES

In modules that can work on by:

  • Applying the next things that make you more productive
  • Build it up over time gradually  rather than carrot and stick rewards
  • Do it while being calm and relaxed
  • Unfold your actual strengths in a  distraction free environment  with no distractions
  • Get productive in the zone
  • Goal sessions drive real action

What to say no to prove to yourself that you are actually capable clear strides towards your goalsSum of all your days.  Look over all that you done by the end of 2019.  Look at how much you have grown professionally in your business!

6. Goals Start with writing your to-do list for the next month. Carry on with a list for the week, and then a daily list. Things will overlap, simply move them to the correct to-do page. This is easier to do online rather than on paper. You can also check them off as you do them. I like to use Airtable to do this. You can list by a table or a kanban (separate areas) It’s free and you can incorporate a buddy as well to whichever section you like. This would be great for your accountability partner.

Prioritize when thinking of which goals to work on first ask yourself these questions.

  • Are the goals you have right now realistic?
  • Would there be some goals that haven’t helped that you could let go of?
  • Which goals have more priority over others?

Goals represent the big change or result you want in your business, the social media systems represent each planned step you take towards the big result.

7. Systems When you break your blogging goals into social media systems they become a habit. When your system becomes your habit your blogging goals no longer take much effort to achieve.
