goals for youth ministry media 2013 Goals, Goals, and More Goals!  February Update


You can check out the post here, Youth Ministry Media’s Goals for 2013.  I love being able to work through a plan, and execute it.  Here are the goals for the year, and I am looking for help to accomplish them!

Here is the update for february:

1.  Have 2000 facebook follows.   

  • Currently 1,101.  1,160.  It is slowly moving along.  I have a plan for the summer.

2. 15,000 hits per month.  

  • In May we it 7,467.  I need to regularly schedule posts.  I have been really inconsistent with blogging.  This season has been crazy, and I need to get back to blogging here and over at youthmin.org.

3. 30,000 twitter followers.  

  • Currently at 29,137.  I love twitter, and I feel like we are still building this.  I don’t know why this has exploeded in the past three months.  Roughly, 3000 people have followed me in the past 3 months.  I need to explore why this happened.  We are on track to break our twitter goal by the end of July.

4. Build my email list to 1500. 

  • Currently at 635.  This list is slowing down.  I need to think of creative ways to connect with this community better.

5. Write 2 more ebooks.  I am going to write one ebook called, “31 days to build a better youth ministry”, and another one on using/developing a texting system with digital download.  I am not sure if I will sell these ebooks, or release them for free!  

  • Next ebook to drop in July, and the other one in September.

6.   Comment 10 times a week on different blogs.  Done!  I need to read more posts.  Know of anyone that I need to read?



I am looking forward to working on all this over the summer.  It is going to be a blast, and I look forward to hanging out with all of you.  Thanks for reading the blog.  I appreciate you.

Those are my goals this year! What do you think?  What are the goals for your website? 

  • I can help with twitter and the list (together). Use Tweepi.com to follow followers of people that you like (I follow about 500 per day and with your numbers that should be fine for you too). The next day unfollow all those who didn’t follow you and repeat until you hit your goal.

    For more people on your list, autoDM them a “free gift for following me” message. Here’s what I use (feel free to cut out the link if you want): “To thank you for following, here’s the ebook of my first book for FREE ($3.99 on Amazon). Go to http://bit.ly/podcastchurchfree” A lot of people are really grateful that I’ve given them something just for following and they also get a free subscription to my newsletter.

    Hope that helps.
