What are your Social Media Goals?

 

A  business CEO of a company always talks about the future of their company. They have a vision of where their company is going. They have a mission statement for their business. They want to supply what their customers or clients are searching for so they do market research. They find out what people in their niche are interested in and create products that will be in demand.

 Keys to a successful business

These are the keys that they use in their step by step plan:

The Keys to Success  

#1 You have to WANT to be a business owner, no excuses,  take action right away. You are consistent in moving your business forward. Your passion will show in everything you do. Your website/blog is constantly updated with content. You advertise regularly and use effective social media on a consistent basis.

But who is your Target Audience?

The saying is: If you target everyone you’ll hit no one.  You need a specific group of people interested in the topic you write about. A micro-niche is a subset of your chosen niche. For example “gardeners”
– “home gardeners” -niche  “Ottawa home gardeners” Specific targets.
Choose as small a group as possible, but one that is large enough to help you make your marketing objectives. Check the paid Google Ads on your search term. Shows there is money on that topic.

#2. You have to believe YOU CAN DO IT. You believe in yourself and have a positive attitude. If your mentor could do it, then you can too. Sacrificing is not key. You must have goals. That is the right mindset. You want to be a business owner and this affords a great lifestyle for you and your family.

#3. Find a GREAT MENTOR.  There are many coaches on the internet. You want to find one that is documented.  Someone who can show you and teach you how to be a great business owner. Someone who has been there and done it many times over.

#4. Take ACTION,  become recognized by your ideal customers by producing the publication of information that builds trust in relationships That know like and trust factor. A newsletter is a very good way to do so. See my optin.   If you want to change your life, you can!

    • Hi Karen,
      My goodness I am surprised to hear that. You are so successful at so many things.
      I know you are a terrific author, that you are almost a professor and you have a
      handmade business with your quilts and other things you create. Don’t be so modest
      Karen. You are wonderful at what you do. Thanks for your comments

  1. Hi Kathryn,
    What a valuable article. I have had my mission statement and goals tucked away in a folder. Although I do express it often in my blog posts, it would make good business sense for me to revisit that since my business and the focus have been evolving. I have been interviewing some amazingly successful people on my radio show and I have also created 2 virtual summits featuring leading practitioners, authors, and thought leaders. I’m currently in the process of setting up my 3rd summit, Men and Love.
    So this will be enlightening for me to go back and review the mission statement I had written several years ago.

    Thanks for all your valuable suggestions.

    Warmly,

    Dr. Erica

    • Hi Dr. Erica,
      Thank you for the “valuable article” appreciate that! Yes revisiting makes sense as our goals and even the main mission statement can evolve. Glad to hear you have been having success with your radio show and virtual summits.Best of luck with Men and Love, your 3rd summit. Thank you for your valuable comments.

  2. Hi Kathryn

    You shared gems in this post and what a way to be successful in business. If one does not believe in himself, there is no way he can build a successful business.

    Love your core message. Thanks for sharing. Take Care

    • Hi ikechi,
      Thanks for “you shared gems” very kind of you. So true my friend, one can not be successful in building a business if one does not believe in themselves. Thank for your comments. Take Care

    • Hi Mandy,
      Yes attracting your target audience is important. It’s how you go about doing that though is key. Thanks for your comments

    • Hi Sue,
      Mission statements don’t really change over the years, I don’t think, they just morph into something more important to you. Thanks for your comments.

    • Hi Elise,
      I think that what you make your mission statement, should sum up the whole reason for which you are online. Directing that statement to people who would be interested in that reason would be your ideal client. Nes pas?

    • Hi Saurabh,
      Thank you I do try to explain as clearly as possible. You never know who will be reading your article so I try and make it easy to read.Thanks for your comments.

  3. Hi Kathryn

    Great article, and I specially like the part about “Alternative Topics”, because I have to confess I flit about a bit… bit always with the same end goal in mind.

    Sometimes I will start on a path and then discover that, in practice, it’s not working out. Rather than throw good time / money after bad, I prefer to learn and move on – but still with my main mission statement in mind.

    • Hi Joy,
      Thanks, I think your mission stays just that your main mission. What you do sometimes takes you off track but hey that’s life.Thanks for your comments.

  4. Wow! i feel like converting this blog in to a book and carry it every where i go. your blog is full of useful info. Impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who had also been conducting a research on this topic.

    • Solowayne,
      Wow! Thank you. As far as converting it to a book, I have a page on my site under the about me page named Start here. It links to a book that I am included in and it’s on Amazon. PAC Knows: Wisdom from PAC Expert Authors As far as “Carrying it everywhere” smartphones do just that, my blog is accessible on all devices. Thanks for your comments!

    • Thank you LogoTrak I do try and write articles that are helpful especially when it comes to Social Media.

  5. I completely agree with finding a mentor! A mentor is a must to drive any business online or offline. It saves a lot of and time and effort. One can easily channelize that time and effort in doing stuff that’s important!

    • Rohan,
      Yes your Mentor has been there and done that their selves. Channeling effort into important things is Important! Had a few mentors myself.

  6. Thank you for your great article!
    However, I have seen people buy an active social media account from website such as socialtradia.com or fameswap.com! They can be helpful because you won’t start the from the scratch! But I didn’t know how legit the website are!

    • Bobby,
      I was not aware of social tradia so I checked them out. Not exactly a good practice. I see they not only trade in Instagram accounts but also many others including Facebook. Never buy your followers, you will not know if they are legit. What kind of relationship would you be able to grow with a lead like that? Patience in growing your social media I would say is needed. Thanks for your comments
