What are my goals for the first month?
I didn't set too high goals for the first month of Tim Niets because I wanted goals that was achieveable. I don't have any marketing budget and I also didn't plan on doing any particular types of marketing either. A few posts on Indie Hackers, a little bit of Reddit and Twitter was all I was going to do.
I was hoping to get 30 visitors to my blog from twitter, reddit, etc and 3 organic visitors. I also set goal for number of followers on twitter, subscribers to my newsletter and so on.
Mid month results
Up until now, I've had 99 visitors and a total of 201 pageviews. One of the visitors has come from Google. So I guess that I can be satisfied with reaching the visitors goals and much more. I just hope that I can get two more organic visitors to that goal will be reached too.
I didn't know what to expect when it came to followers on Twitter, but right now, I have 176 followers and that is a lot more than I expected. When it comes to my newsletter, I have zero subscribers. But what more can I expect after such short time?
For the last week and a little bit more there's been at least a couple of times every day that my blog has shown up in someones search results. The goal is to keep increasing this number each week and hopefully people will start clicking it.
I've got a little bit of feedback through twitter, and all of it has been positive. I love creating these types of short tutorials and I will keep doing it for a long time.
What's the plan for the rest of the month?
I have a lot of content ready for publication. So for the rest of the month, I will keep publishing one post every day.
