Are you impatient for warmer weather to arrive? Impatient for your lenses and the rest of your online business to take off like a kite on a breezy day? While there’s not a thing you can do to change the weather, there are things to be done to help improve the performance of your Squidoo lenses and your online business. First, you’ll need a plan. And good plans start with goals. As you’re setting your goals, ask yourself these four questions:
1. How many lenses will you make this month? It helps to set goals for club and quest participation and to set aside time for making lenses for your niche and any new passions that come along. Be reasonable in your expectations so you won’t feel rushed or frazzled if you get behind. Remember, it’s fine to modify your goals in midstream.
2. How are you going to keep your lenses up-to-date? Make a plan to freshen up lens content regularly. Check the calendar for upcoming holidays and events then move related lenses on those topics to the top of your priority list.
3. How are you going to promote your work? Make a social media plan, then get out there and do some promoting. Watch for suggestions from Tom’s ongoing series on social media (and our tips on RocketSquids if you’re a member).
4. How will you reach out to others to share Squidoo? You’ve got a good thing going here, so why not share it with a friend? We even have beautifully-crafted video invitations like this one that you are free to use to invite like-minded people to the site.
As in life, success on Squidoo starts with goals and plans, so invest some time early this month to plan your work. Then work your plan and watch what happens!
Now tell us, what do you have planned for the month of March?
