Work Out Loud: What are your top three goals for the week?

The process of setting goals can be fun, motivating, and rewarding. 

 

I personally find it helpful to write my goals down in the form of a checklist. That way, once I finish them, I get the satisfaction of checking things off my list. This feeds my need for daily accomplishment and lowers my stress levels at the same time.  I am most inspired when I set daily and weekly goals as I look ahead on deadlines and progress throughout my work week. This process makes me hone in on what’s important and shows where I will be spending my time. 

 

It’s also important to remember goals aren’t linear. You can adjust them whenever needed, and if you don’t finish them that day, there’s always tomorrow. Don’t be afraid to adjust your goals as time goes on. And remember, everything is editable. So find your groove, get your list of goals populated, and get after it!

 

As we kick off a new week, what are your top three goals you want to accomplish?

The basics of developing a marketing strategy are tied to goals. Without a goal in place, you don't know where you're going!
There are also different types of goals. You could want more customers, increase the average customer spend, introduce a new service, or target a new market segment. Each of those goals requires a strategy, messaging and the implementation of specific marketing tools (in nearly all cases, email marketing should be part of it).

Having clearly defined goals is the "secret" to a successful marketing strategy!

I volunteer at a nonprofit animal shelter during the week. From walking adoptable dogs to feeding and cleaning. Also, I help out with more technical/digital projects. :dog:

The top three goals on our minds are:

  1. We're looking to boost our SEO to make sure that when individuals search for ways to support animal welfare causes, they find us easily. By increasing our visibility online, we hope to reach more potential donors and volunteers who share our passion for helping animals in need.
  2. Begin event planning for our annual big animal adoption drive with raffles and fundraising initiatives.
  3. And of course, making sure we have volunteers around the clock to show animals to perspective adopters.
