Road to 10,000: Weekly Blogging Goals & Updates, Week 15

Road to 10,000:  Weekly Blogging Goals & Updates, Week 15 | Sarah Smirks:  The Marketing Mama Blog


O.  M.  G.  How am I on week 15 of this series already?  Holy moly!  Sorry for the delay on this post.  You know how life just LOOOVES to get in the way.  I had an out of town wedding this weekend and house guests all week, soooo, here I am...a little late.

Well, let's see how I did!  My hopes aren't high.  I had a blogging malfunction last Thursday and I wasn't able to save the post I wrote (and that just made me say, "Ef, this!  I'll do it next week."), so I only posted two last week.  I did not hit my schedule...another oops.  I'm off to a great start with this update, aren't I?  It's like a blogging confessional up in here.

Goals from Last Week


Here's last week's update for a refresher.

Sessions:  650/week
Status: #themostepicfailever

Now, this is just embarrassing.  My stats were 477 sessions last week.  I know exactly why.  1)  I only posted twice.  2)  My second post did OKAY.  Not stellar.  3)  I barely promoted. 4)  I only did a few link parties.  I've been so busy with work and life, the amount of time needed to continually be promoting has not been possible.

My top acquisitions sources were:  Pinterest, Direct, Google (organic), Facebook, and Twitter.  It's the first time that organic reach was a top source, so that's a little awesome.

My top pages were:




Instagram E-Course:  3 New Students
Status:  #Fail

I failed to promote my e-course AT ALL.  I was lucky enough to get one new student for my course though :).  I think I will have to wait until I take my holiday break to really work on a campaign to promote it.  I do not have time right now to concentrate on it.

Pinterest:  400 Followers

Status:  #Almostnotafail

I am at 399 followers.  Are you kidding me?  I couldn't have squeaked one more out before this post?

UPDATE:  By the time I went to bed, this was a "Rocked it."  I'm at 403 now :)

Goals for this Week


This week, I have already started off bad and missed my Monday post, so I'm just going to leave sessions off the docket.

Twitter:  2,900 followers

I'll use Crowdfire to follow my competitor's' followers and continue to keep up on my Twitter schedule.

Newsletter:  Send it out!

I hope to write and send out my newsletter for the month. 

Hootsuite:  Try out the new campaigns feature.

I read the Hootsuite just released a campaigns feature to help users gain subscribers or run giveaways.  I'm hoping to try that out this week :)

What are your goals this week?
