As 2022 draws to an end, now is the perfect time to start planning for the following year. From hiring a VA to growing your audience, here are some questions to consider when planning your goals for 2023. 

Financial Goals 

When it comes to setting financial goals, you might ask the following questions

  • How much money do I want to make this year”? 
  • What will my revenue streams be, and how much will each generate? 
  • How much will it cost to operate my business? 
  • How much will you pay yourself? 
  • Do you need to budget for hiring a VA to help you in 2023? 

Customer Acquisition 

Once you know your financial goals, it’s time to clarify how you’ll make this money. 

  • How many customers do you need? 
  • How will you find them? 
  • What’s your conversion rate? 
  • What’s your average customer spend? 
  • How many books do you need to sell? 

Audience Growth 

It’s not enough to say I’m going to grow my audience – you need a plan.

  • How will you grow your audience? 
  • How much will you focus on and grow each social media channel? 
  • How much website traffic do you need? 
  • Are there speaking events or book signings you can attend? 

Writing/Professional Goals 

  • Do you want to write a new book this year or focus on promoting existing work? 
  • Do you need to plan out any launches?
  • Are there any authors you’d like to collaborate/co-write with this year? 
  • Are there any writing courses you want to take to refine your skills?
  • Do you want to hire a writing coach?
