Modish - Monthly Goal Meetup for May

Update on April Goals:

1. Design 8 stationery sets for my Etsy shop, Deer Sweetheart Studio. - Done
2. To contact 4 blogs to have my shop written about in their blogs. - Done
3. To finish the layout for my own blog. - Done
4. To purchase one ad on a blog. - Done
5. Do a freebie for Modish.

Well, I accomplished 4 out of 5 of my April goals. Trying to accomplish my goals is really a challenge as I have too many pots on the stove. What I have noticed though is that if I make a “to do list” at the beginning of the day, I am able to accomplish all of the items on the list. When I try to accomplish goals by just keeping them in my head, I get more overwhelmed. So obviously, it is best to make a “to do list” everyday. It’s like feng shui, very orderly and neat.

I did not accomplish April goal #5, making a freebie for Modish because a freebie has to be an invitation. So that is something for the future.

May Goals:

1. To re-list products throughout the day.
2. To upload three new designs a week – need to get more products in shop.
3. To make a chart for advertising – cost vs. hits – which blog ad is more cost
4. To contact 4 blogs for shop feature write-up.
5. To weed out designs in shop that are not getting a certain number of views.

What has been achieved by listing products throughout the day - I have been featured in three Treasuries to date. That makes me feel that re-listing does achieve recognition of my shop, so this activity is productive.

My focus for May is to just increase designs in shop that produce strong interest in my visitors. I know that sales will follow once my shop has a consistent brand look, with desirable products that customers find a need to purchase.

Thanks again to Modish for helping us keep focused on our goals!
