These are my favorites from last month. I am also going to use this post to report how I am doing with blog. I find these posts very interesting when other people post them, so I thought I would do it here and see if you are interested. If not, you can skip this part and let me know down in the comments not to do it again.
First, I will report my page views. I am very embarrassed at how low they are, so I’m not going to say exactly what they are. But suffice it to say, I lost a lot of viewers when I re-themed my blog and moved to WordPress. Let’s just say that I want to significantly increase my viewership in the next month. Next month I will tell you how many viewers I have if it increases. I don’t know how it can not increase! Some things I have done to increase my viewership this month are:
- hold a giveaway.
- commenting on others posts.
- trying to be more consistent with posting days and times.
Increase Social Media Presence
My numbers of followers have gone up in the past month especially in Instagram. I have been trying to be more social on Facebook, Instagram and twitter by replying, liking, re-tweeting and commenting as prompted. I am making some friendships and some record regular customers for my stores. It is fun when people become fans. They can be a real boost and are better advertisement than your own.
Right now my only income is from my stores and business is picking up! Sometimes getting orders out gets in the way of blogging and it puts a wrenching my consistency. I am torn between the two. I want to have people be able to count on me for blog posts, but I want to get my products out the door quickly. It’s a Catch-22.
The only affiliates that I have right now are Google AdSense and Amazon and they are not paying out because I have so little traffic. I think in the future they will be profitable, but not right now.
Publish More Blog Posts
I want to publish more blog post this month. I have my Editorial Calendar displayed on the blog for you so you can see what I have planned. Essentially, I have planned a Nail Art posted for every Friday, Throwback Thursday every other week, Pink Wednesday every other week, one Meet the Blogger, one Guest Blogger and two Newsletters. I have this plan for last month too, but didn’t get it all in. Hopefully, I will be able to get it all in this month.
Last month I published:
- March Favorites
- Nail Art – Ombre Pastels
- Guest Post – Ladybug & Daisy
- Nail Art – Bunny Says Happy Easter!
- Meet the Blogger – Two Girls One Blush Space –Velasha
- Nail Art – Spots & Dots
- Nail Art – Textured & Dotted
Get More Email Subscribers
Right now, I don’t have many email subscribers. This is something I have been wanting to work on for some time. I have a lot of newsletter subscribers from my first blog, Lisa’s Nail Obsession. But some of them are confused because I changed my name to My Stunning Nails.
To help in this endeavor I got a new plug-in that offers a freebie for signing up as an email subscriber. However, I don’t know what to offer. If any of you have some ideas, please let me know. I’ll keep my thinking cap on.
Blog Goals for April
- Increase page view numbers by 10 fold at least.
- Continue to interact with my social media especially Instagram and Facebook. Get more Facebook page likes.
- Earn $200 in my store this month.
- Earn something/anything from Amazon this month.
- Get at least 100 more email subscribers. Set up plug-in with freebie.
Come back at the end of April to see if I accomplished these goals and what I have planned for the next month. If you have plans for May share them in the comments.
