Challenge: 1000 Subscribers On All Social Media Platforms
Small steps lead to bigger things
I recently hit my goal of hitting 1000 subscribers on Medium (I include this in the ‘social media’ platform group).
It took me around (after I started seriously going for it) 6 months to hit this goal with consistent writing every week. Previous to that, my focus was growing out my Twitter channel to 1k followers.
Now it’s Youtube’s turn!
The question you might be going: why 1000 — seems like a small goal, no?
The answer to that is simple: I want to focus my time on learning all platforms.
The numbers might not seem much, but I am looking to grow all of these from scratch.
As a marketer, I believe growing yourself across all platforms gives you better benefits than going all in one platform.
1. Firstly, you’re not over-reliant on one platform.
If that one platform goes bankrupt or you get banned off it, you’re pretty much screwed (unless you already have a considerable follower base).
Being able to cross-promote on all platforms gives you a chance to reach a wider audience, meaning you get more eyeballs on your content.
2. You’re building followers and income streams for multiple platforms
Ok, yes, you’re not getting ‘income’ from platforms Twitter, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t help.
Cross-promotion is one of the most essential strategies for content marketing, and being able to reach a more extensive network of people is always important, as mentioned.
The biggest thing, however, is learning what to focus on first.
It’s easy said than done to start your journey on all social media platforms, so in my opinion, take it slow and start with maybe one or two.
The key has always been consistency, so being able to create content regularly will always win.
Now my call to action
Why not challenge yourself to do the same?
With COVID-19 causing many people to stay at home, this is the perfect time to get on board and start building that digital footprint.
