1. Social Media
Continue to plan my social media posts weekly. Reserve a weekly time to check YouTube comments, and write an email.
I have continued to successfully plan out my social media posts. Right now my social media focuses on sharing my TpT resources, blog tips, motivation and self-care. I would love to add more about me into my social media because I am my brand, but I am just not there yet.
2. Learning Goal
There are some videos in the CEO Teacher School I haven’t watched yet that I would like to. I think I will be ending the membership soon since I have worked through most of the material.
I set aside the last day of the month, November 30, to watch videos from The CEO Teacher. Thanks to being able to watch them in double speed I was able to finish all the videos. There were some great tips in them and I am glad I found the time. I have a decision to make about the membership in the next few days.
3. Reach out to a Publisher About Copyright
I am going to see if I can get an actual answer from the publisher about the poem I want to use. I can’t believe that it is this difficult to find an email address.
I did set aside time to start this task. I did some research about how to reach out to a publisher or copyright owner. I downloaded some templates of letters that I can use to reach out, but haven’t finished the process.
4. Fix My Life Skills Lessons SEO
Now that I think I found a usable SEO term I should be able to fix the product descriptions on these products so that teachers find them.
I thought for sure I wasn’t going to manage to update these product descriptions again. I started to update my Life Skills bundle about half way through the month. I made new thumbnails and finished the SEO research. I wrote out the description and got one posted before I ran out of time. On November 29 I finished updating my lifeskills bundles. I was really cutting it close this time, but it’s done and I am so happy because this task took me far too long. I did learn a lot more about SEO research from it though.
5. Batch December Blogs and November YouTube Videos
I feel like both blogging and YouTube went better last month and I plan to continue this method of staying within the time I’ve allotted for content creation. The only thing I might change is tracking my hours for each step because often times my work time will get cut short when my toddler wakes from his nap early. I might change my writing plan specified hours to spend on content creation rather than days.
Since my blogging week was the week of Thanksgiving I did need an extra day this month. I started with my plan of writing on the writing days. I finished three blogs and outlined a fourth blog. On my editing day I moved onto editing. And I was lucky enough to finish editing the three blogs I finished early. So I went back to the fourth blog and finished writing it out. But writing it out took longer than I thought. Editing carried over one more day. So then I created my graphics a day late.
I still think this plan worked better than trying to create all the blogs. I was able to complete everything with a couple of extra hours rather than an extra week of stress.
6. 10 Products for TpT
I plan to continue to push for 10 products each month. This goal pushes me to make the most of my creative work time. However, I am going to adjust it. I am going to create 5 products and revise 5 products. The revision could be the product itself or the SEO in the description. Whatever creative time I have left for the month will go towards creating grammar.
I am so proud because I over achieved on this goal. I created seven new resources for my TpT store and I revised 5 resources for my TpT store. If you count my Life Skills resources I also revised 8 product descriptions.
7. Make $100 on TpT
Last month I made over $100. I am hoping I will be able to consistently make $100 a month on TpT. Consistently creating new resources will help. $100/ a month is $3.33/ a day this month.
I did not reach this goal this month I made $80.50. I was really bummed about this because last month was so great. I hit the toggle on my dashboard that lets me compare this year to last year. Last November is when my resources started to sell. Last November I made $20 on TpT this NovemberI made four times that. I may not have met my goal, but I like to think positive about what I have accomplished.
