Goal Update March 31, 2017
Starting in 2017, I began publicly sharing goals related to building my Amazon FBA business as well as growing The Bootstrap Boutique. I set quarterly goals and do a check in on YouTube every two weeks to keep you updated on my progress and to hold myself accountable to working consistently towards meeting these goals.
For the first quarter of 2017, I set the following goals for myself:
- Sell all 500 units of my Private Label Product
- Launch a second Private Label Product
- Gain 5,000 Twitter Followers
- Send out 1,000 Tweets
- Earn 200 YouTube Subscribers
- Post 20 YouTube Videos
- Review 3 books on YouTube
- Appear on 3 Podcasts or YouTube Channels
So how did I do? Let’s check in!
Sell all 250 units of my Private Label Product (Goal Not Met)
I ended the quarter selling 97 of the 250 units that I ordered. If I had actually started in January, and not mid February, then I think this is a goal I could have achieved.
Launch a second Private Label Product (Goal Not Met)
I still have not launched a second private label product but hope to do so soon.
Gain 5,000 Twitter Followers (Goal Met)
I ended the quarter with 5,541 Twitter followers.
Send out 1,000 Tweets (Goal Met)
I sent 1,466 tweets during the quarter and plan to keep my engagement high.
Earn 200 YouTube Subscribers (Goal Met)
I am thrilled to end the quarter with 416 YouTube subscribers!
Post 20 YouTube Videos (Goal Met)
I posted 47 videos during the first quarter, far exceeding this goal.
Review 3 books on YouTube (Goal Met)
I reviewed Eat That Frog, Vlog like a Boss, and I did one sentence reviews of five classic business books.
Appear on 3 Podcasts or YouTube Channels (Goal Met)
During the quarter I was fortunate to appear of 2 podcasts and 1 YouTube channel. You can find me on Moving Forward with John Lim, The Amazing Seller with Scott Voelker and on the Sellzee youtube channel.
In this video, I also share my goals for Q2:
For the second quarter of 2017, I set the following goals for myself:
1) Launch a second YouTube Channel for my Private Label brand and schedule 2 months of videos (8 total)
2) Get my Private Label Brand brand registered at Amazon
3) Work on The Bootstrap Boutique Blog
4) Watch and comment on 20 Amazon Seller Videos per week
And finally, this isn’t a stated goal, but I plan to use my “theme days” to get it all done.
Theme days are:
Monday – Product Work
Tuesday – Private Label Brand
Thursday: The Bootstrap Boutique Brand
Friday: Plan & Review
