Time to tidy up loose ends
[Last reminder to follow 10 new people. It’s amazing how well this has worked, isn’t it?!]
It’s the last day of November in our Author Platform Challenge journey. It’s been quite a ride.
Day 30 is when we check our progress!
Since that notebook is probably still out from yesterday, grab it and open to the front pages where you took your original assessments on Day 1.
Let’s compare numbers! Go page by page and compare where you started with where you are now.
For each social media outlet you were tracking, fill in:
- How many followers did you have May 1st? How many do you have today?
- What was your goal, did you meet it?
- If you didn’t meet your goal, do you feel better about the progress you made, the engagement you created?
How do you feel overall about the challenge? Did you rise to the occasion?
If real life got in the way, don’t beat yourself up. It happens! The good news is this challenge can be redone over and over again! Start back next month where you left off. Or recommit yourself in the fall.
Did you meet your overall goal?
I worked my tail off creating this challenge, and admittedly it got in the way of my own implementation. But I still improved my numbers by…*still doing the math*… Actually, I’m excited to see the numbers.
I’m impressed by all the work I got done and I hope you are too. Please drop some comments on your progress made, so we can let each other know how proud we are of ourselves, as a collective group of hard-working authors-with-increased-platforms!
My new goal in the fall will be to do this challenge again and again, with the social media platforms I’ve been ignoring. I’ll see if I like any of them better. I’ll assess whether I want to abandon ship on what I have going on now and replace it with a new outlet. Heck, maybe by them there will be a slew of even newer outlets to try. Maybe you’ll join me then, too?
But hey. Congrats, man. It’s Day 30. You did it!
