Our advice; ask yourself "What is the end game?". My oldest at-home daughter has entered into her Freshman year. After putting her older sisters through public school from K to 12 I already had a "feel" for what we would need but didn't want to cookie cutter the state system. After all, isn't that why we home school? That's when I got the bright idea to contact the admissions counselor for her "dream college". They told us that they don't care so much about WHICH program a home schooled child goes through as they care more about what the child got out of it. This told me that SATs plus her extra activities were going to be the golden ticket. So, we looked at the college's admissions minimum and tailored her plan around those requirements. There was a sense of freedom in looking at the end goal and planning backwards. It even gave her the opportunity to choose where she wants to do her "above and beyond" classes, geared for her chosen career, so she's getting more out of her time and effort.
Booher advises, “Far too many people and organizations spray paint on social media. They have no strategy. Therefore, they spend a little time here and a little time there on the various platforms, staying virtually invisible on all of them. Social media experts advise that you formulate a strategy to master one or at most two platforms. Decide where you’ll find your audience and go there. Then master that platform. Use those one or two platforms to drive traffic to your own website — the one place where you actually have control of the traffic and what they see. The tactics on social media are all the magnets you use to put buyers into your funnel on this platform and gradually lead them to your website. Finally, know what you want them to do when they get to your site: Read a blog? Buy a product? Sign up for an ezine? Register for a free webinar? Attend a paid event? The more specific the action you want them to take, the easier to measure your results. Give them a vague action, and you’ll likely have a vague notion of whether you’re succeeding.
