My 2018 *Business* Focuses Revealed

Recently I posted about how I chose 3 creative focuses at the beginning of the year, and they created the path for my downtime, my creative time, my classes taken, etc. I briefly referenced my business focuses, but I didn't go into any detail, until a sweet friend of mine privately messaged me and asked why I didn't mention what they were. So, if you're also wanting to know what I'm up to on the business end of things, this is the post for you!

Last week I posted about how I chose 3 creative focuses at the beginning of the year, and they created the path for my downtime, my creative time, my classes taken, etc. In that post, I noted that I’m doing it again next year, and I want you along for the ride!

I briefly referenced my business focuses, but I didn’t go into any detail, until a sweet friend of mine privately messaged me and asked why I didn’t mention what they were. Really, it was 2 reasons.

#1. I was afraid I’d already rambled on long enough as it was. πŸ˜€

#2. I wasn’t sure they’d be interesting.

So, if you’re also wanting to know what I’m up to on the business end of things, this is the post for you!

1. Pinterest

One of my favorite things about working as a VA, was social media work. But not all social media work. Two social media platforms are my favorites by far… Pinterest is one of them. I’m in a few Pinterest classes right now, but I haven’t made my way through them, and I haven’t started implementing any of it yet. I’ve seen people talk about most of their traffic coming from Pinterest, and I’d love to learn how that happens.

2. Instagram

I know, you were ready for me to say Facebook right? Juuuuust kidding. I like Facebook, but I don’t “love” Facebook. Same with Twitter. But I love Instagram. The photos, the stories, the lives…. I absolutely adore every section of this platform. But my business changing means that I’m feeling my way into a new look, and I want to solidify that, and really create a community on there.

3. Video

I don’t do video very often… but every time I make a foray into it, I enjoy it so much, and I get a great response. I’m not sure if it’s because my enthusiasm really comes through on video, or if it’s because my snark is more obvious when it’s not written. Ha! Either way, I plan to do a lot more of video in 2018… pre-recorded and live. I also plan to do more on YouTube. Right now I’m in the process of creating new channels, to go with the new brand, and I’m deciding…. should I have one channel for book tube, and another channel for creative things… or blend it all under one channel?

I’m kind of leaning towards all under one channel, and just pretend that I’m a superstar and everything’s in one place under my name, but I’d love your opinion!

Do you think I should have one YouTube channel, or separate channels for different topics? And, what are *your* business focuses next year?
