I have noticed myself watching numbers related to my website more than I probably should at this point. Â The reality is my photography site is brand new, and will take a long time to truly develop into what I believe it can be in the future. Â However, that still doesn’t stop me from keeping a close eye on whether or not people are actually tuning in.
I recently passed what I believe is a self-proclaimed milestone (that probably doesn’t mean anything in reality, but it was the first sign of success in my mind.). Â My Youtube channel surpassed 1,000 cumulative views. Â
Yep, not 1,000 subscribers, or even 1,000 views on a single video, but just 1,000 views in total across all videos on the channel. Â Now, at this point, I probably only have about 15 videos that are public, so I think it is still a good first achievement.
Having hit that milestone, I thought I would try to keep track of when I hit other milestones in the future, so here are some personal goals / milestones that I hope to achieve related to viewing data. Â I just wanted to share them on the blog as a fun way to be able to look back and update this post over time if / when I cross certain milestones.
– 1,000 Cumulative views on Youtube (passed on 9/15/16)
– 1,000 views on a single video (TBD)
– 1,000 visitors to Photographytv.com (total and per month) (TBD)
– 1,000 subscribers to my Youtube channel (TBD)
– 1,000 subscribers to our E-mail newsletter (TBD)
10,000 goals and 100,000 goals – same metrics as above, but replacing 10,000 and 100,000 as the number. Â
I don’t know which goals / numbers indicate some form of success or indication of a viable business, but I thought they would be fun to track and monitor over time.
Cheers to the first of 1,000 goals…
Thanks for tuning in.
