{A July Dreamer} Social Media Goals {Yearly}

Social medial goals are something I have always wanted to do but never actually tried to put together. When I started blogging I focused on producing content (quality or not) and a bit of getting my numbers up. Then I leant a little about blogging, bought my domain and started again on some social media platforms. Part of my January goals is to put together Social media goals for the year. This year I am planning on putting some effort into increasing my social media reach. social media goals

I have never set social media goals before but I do have an idea of the numbers that I am looking for. How I am going to achieve those numbers is a mistory to me but I shall certainly try what I know. If it doesn’t work then I intend to read some books on blogging and social media.  I have been blogging for almost 4 years and not once read a ‘how-to’ blogging book. Yes I have read posts sharing how they achieved this and that but none has worked for me. Hence why I thought it is best if I did my own thing and see what works.


Social Media Goals

Twitter —> Currently 2,506                             Target —> 5,000

Pinterest –> Currently 643                               Target —> 1, 000

Facebook –> Currently 1,595                           Target –> 3,000

Instagram –> Currently 1,357                          Target –> 2000


When it comes to setting goals, I try not to be too over optimistic about them. I always aim for something smart and achievable. I think with every goals set, if you work hard enough they can be achieved especially if you’re consistent. As mentioned already, I have no specific plan to on how achieve these social media goals I am still thinking. But will start with the basics

  • Follow for Follow hashtags
  • Join follow threads in Facebook groups
  • Participate in blogger giveaway buy-ins
  • Follow other bloggers in similar niche and interact with them.

    Good luck with your gaols, I bet that you smash them all in no time as your blog is so lovely x

    • Awww thanks, I certainly hope so

  • I love that you have set goals for your social media following. I do set goals that are often very optimistic, but I think it’s good to live by the saying ‘ shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you will land among the stars’.

    • Oh that’s a lovely saying for sure and thanks

  • It’s always good to set goals and great ambitious ones you have there too. Wishing you luck and hope you get the audience that’s perfect for you 🙂

    • Thanks Alina, that’s the most important part, getting the right audience

    Best of luck achieving your goals! I should set some goals myself too.

  • Thanks so much Katie for that, I never really thought about twitter chats, I will sure be on the look out for them and try to join

  • Kara

    I have to admit that I have found follow for follow doesn’t really work as many simply unfollow again. I have built my following organically but it was a long process

    • Yes follow for follow can be a bit tendious with some people who unfollow

  • Good luck with the monthly goals. Hope you smash them all.

  • fivelittledoves

  • Jo

    You’ve got great followings! I’m just starting out for my numbers are nowhere near the 1,000s yet, but I’m sure if I’m consistent it will grow.

    • Consistence I am told definitely helps with growing the social media and following fellow bloggers too

  • Lauren Porter

  • FussFreeJen

    I try not to lool at my own numbers, because compared to most, they are frightful. I own goal was to concentrate on my Instagram account, that is still dormant. I had plans, they have come of nothing yet.

    • Oh dear, when you have time you will definitely implement those goals.

  • I don’t have specific numbers I want to reach but I’m currently just under 5K on Twitter so I want to push over that figure soon and I’d just like to grow Instagram and Bloglovin to any level really x

    • I would like to get my twitter to 5k too and improve on the other ones
