Good morning! Here it is the 1st of February and we are about 1 quarter of the way through our goals. How is everything going? I am not putting the linky anymore because I just didn’t have enough interest. So, if you are playing along, please leave your link in the comments section!
OK on to my 12 Weeks to Goal blogging goals and how they are going:
Update on my Blogging Goals:
- GOAL NUMBER ONE: Increase Twitter Followers to 12,250 for @momof3boys3702 and 5,300 for @Deals_3BD – As of 02/01/2012 I am at 11,185 for main and 4,472 for deals!
- GOAL NUMBER TWO: Increase Newsletter Subscribers to 800 – As of 02/01/2012 I am at 832! I reached my goal!! Whoo hoo!!
- GOAL NUMBER THREE: Add pictures to 10 of the 37 recipe posts missing images As of 02/01/2012 I have no idea where I am. Since I started www.southernmomcooks.com, I have been working on it differently. LOL!
- GOAL NUMBER FOUR: Complete A-Z Alphabet Book through K! As of 02/01/2012 I am at the same as last week 1/2 way through G. This is not going well! I have gotten bored with it because it is taking me so long. I really need some motivation to get some of this knocked out!
This week, let’s talk about Facebook. How to get the interaction up and the likers up. Here’s what I (and my assistant) have done in increase my facebook Fans. It must be working because at the time of my writing this, I had about 200 less than 4,000 fans.
#1 – Ask Questions! Come up with a list of fun things like “What are you wearing today?” and “What are you having for supper?” and put or of them one a few times a week.
#2 – Ask advice! If you are stuck about something or unsure about something, ask on your fan page! I found that I go to my fan page more and more often these days instead of (or in addition to) asking my family. People love to help others! It works!
#3 – Visit other sites’ Fan pages as your site. Meaning? Log into Facebook on the right hand drop down menu and select “use facebook as page” then scroll through and start commenting on half a dozen or so pages. It sparks interest! Not only do they come check you out, but so do their readers.
