I have always treated my Teachers Pay Teachers Store as a business, with the goal of being able to help support my family, while I am home taking care of my son. In order to grow my business, I have set some big goals this year.
I am taking on the year quarter by quarter, adjusting goals as I go, and dreaming big.
- Take an online course
I want to make sure I am growing professionally so that I continue to have inspiration for product creation.
It will also make me a better teacher when I return to the classroom.
- Gain 10 followers on Instagram
I only use Instagram to share pictures of my son with family across the country, but I am learning all about social media marketing. I am starting with small goals of gaining just a few followers while I build an Instagram for my TpT store.
- Create a Blog
Blogs are a great way for my potential audience to get to know like and trust me. I want to have a blog as a landing page for an email list, my YouTube channel, and anything else I need it for.
- Add 10 Lessons to TpT
TpT is really where my revenue comes from at this point so I think it’s so important that I keep adding resources to my store.
- Read a Business Book
I know about Teaching, not business. So I am going to try to read a business book each month to help me gain the knowledge I will need as my store grows.
- Make $40 on TpT
This is a small goal, but it is double what my December 2020 goal was. My earnings goal will keep going up as I progress, but I am starting in a manageable place.
