Challenges: July & August 2016
I said June was a roller coaster... and 100% underestimated how July and August can be even more bumpy. That said, I was super happy that Kyle commented on my last monthly update.
Thanks a bunch, Kyle. Your words meant a lot to me.
So here are June's goals:
Develop an efficient writing schedule, Continue to build relationships and learn from other folks.
It's always exhilarating to be able to strike everything off!
A quick recap
July came with a bunch of my sibling and cousins coming back from Europe. We had a ton of fun together during our trip to Nha Trang (Vietnam) and more.
Of course, fun time doesn't mean slack time.
I've developed a pretty good writing schedule that allows me to work everyday while still having time to socialise.
On the topic of writing, I was honoured to get my first guest post published on one of my admirer's, Todd Maltzahn, blog.
Also these 2 months, I have been more into building relationships with other influencers. Some of them were kind enough to start commenting and sharing my posts with their audiences.
Blogging is about connections at the end of the day.
I've also gotten around to put a "Featured on..." section on my sidebar. Sooner or later, I'd like to redesign it and add a link to a list of all the places I've been featured at...
And best of all, I am happy to say that I've finally learned a thing or two about ranking for low-competitive keywords and have some of my posts on the top 5 in less than a month, which is something I can not even dream about before.
Sales are finally coming along as well, though they are not yet sustainable so that will be something I'll work on in the following months.
Today, Kyle just shared about the Vegas trip in 2017. He's given us a special offer of making 100 sales in 3 months in order to attend this big WA event.
I've always loved a good challenge so this is gonna be my number one goal from now on.
For September, I will:
- Focus on researching low-competitive, buying keywords to increase WA sales,
- Figure if I need to write more content to rank on Google,
- Continue to build relationships and learn from other folks.
Let's see how it goes!
