- Set measurable growth goals. Saying you want to grow your Instagram account isn’t enough. Define it. Instead, set the goal of increasing followers by 50 each month.
- Be smart with measurable goals. To go along with measurable goals it’s not enough to pull a number out of a hat. Turn to historical data to set numerical goals.
- Set goals based on revenue targets. This one is a bit self-explanatory. Understand what you want your revenue to hit this year and work backward to figure out how to get there.
- Be willing to run experiments. Want to discover new channels to bring in revenue? Run tests for a set amount of time with a specific objective to let you know if the new channel is worth its stuff.
