Yes, I am prepping for an amazing 2022, but this year, I think I'm going to alter my stride a bit and share with you a few things I've been working on and strategies for your #authorlife and #writinglife.
I order a great number of products, and use a lot of software, some which works ideally and others, well, I know better now.
This year, my goal is to share with you the ups and the downs of a great number of these products. No, I'm not trying to sell you anything, but I can share with you my successes and what have been some major fails.
Initially, when I saw this journal, I started thinking, cool, it has monthly tabs, I can journal in it and use one journal for the entire year. So I ordered it.
Then I got hit with a brilliant, if I may so so myself, idea. This will be my 2022 Social Media Planning Calendar. I will have a record of what I did for what book and when with stickers I can print myself with my book covers and paste.
It has a black cover that you can design yourself. I haven't decided what I want it to say yet, or how I want it to look, outside of 2022 Social Media.
I want you to take a look inside of this as well. You can create a mission statement. I'm going to add one that gives me targets for my social media following.
I have written in my mission statement and word for the year which is "visualize".
Also inside of this adorable journal are large blocks to insert release date images, or overall plans for your social media posting month. My word of the month for January is honesty.
When you turn the page, you can see the dot grids to either stencil, stamp, or doodle. I am going to enjoy entering the start and end dates of Amazon, FB< and Bookbub ads to track sales, clicks and more. The cool thing is that I will be able to screen shot the analytics and stick it here in the book. Even better, at the end of the month, I can download my sales, and see which books are moving, and which titles need to be retired.
I'm also upping my washi sticker game with some of these Vintage stickers.
