    @rosiesherry (Thursday title)
    END of JULY
    Launch Phase 1 of Lift Academy

    Yesterday
    Dug deep into the National Common Core Standards. Which I thought was going to be extremely dry. I was wrong! However, there’s a lot more there than I thought, which alters my plans a little. Still need to launch by end of month so will talk through a plan in a separate blog post.

    I did map a basic topic list for grades K-12

    Today
    Create both a short and long term plan for using the National Common Core Standards in Lift Academy assessments

    1. 2

      I don't know what day of the week it is anymore. 🙈

        Ask IH: What day of the week is it? 😂

        1. 1

          Is there an app for that?

  4. 3

    I love this thread! By the end of July, I want to make it a habit to show up on Indie Hackers, Growth Hackers, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter daily. My goal for July is to get my client's brand new website to 1000 monthly visitors.

    Yesterday I strategized 3 months of high-converting keywords and found 2 people to interview for content.

    Today I will interview 1 person for content, comment on 5 relevant blogs, build 1 link and finish the strategy.

    You rock!

    1. 1

      you go!

  5. 2

    I'm working on reaching more people for my startup EEKAY ONLINE through which I offer my experience as a 16+ year developer with over 7 years of mobile app development experience.

    As an INDEPENDENT consultant, I advise people on web- and mobile apps without having them stuck at a developer firm.

    I've had multiple gigs to help people find out how to get their app project from the ground, specifying mobile apps through remote workshops and advising them in what's possible and what not.

    I want to get my next leads for companies, startups, people who are looking to get a mobile app going but don't know where to start.

  9. 2

    By the end of July, my goal is to get 1,250 unique hits per day on ProsperCircle.org. Currently, I'm between 250 - 500. Some days it gets closer to 750.

    Yesterday, researched SEO strategies and started working on featuring companies on ProsperCircle.org

    Continue building Company page on ProsperCircle.org. Goal is deploy it by Friday. (I know Fridays are bad days to deploy code ;))

    1. 1

      counting hits to a website is meaningless unless it's attached to a business outcome. how does your metrics work?

      1. 1

        True. It is top of the funnel for me. Should have said 1,250 unique relevant hits per day.

        1. 1

          what does "relevant" mean?

          1. 1

            Relevant hits are hits from people who are the right persona for my service.

            1. 1

              and you can track this? i'm just asking because most folks count and measure stats that literally do nothing for them.

              in fact, i don't count "visits" for a long time.

  10. 2

    This is actually helpful, atleast for me, @rosiesherry. I understand you have a lot on your plate but howsoever you are managing it, it is commendable.

    My goal for the month - Talk to my users at Designtack. To understand them better, run experiments and tests. Hopefully, I might have something by the end of this month.

  11. 2

    • Publish Strategy / Risk pages

    End Of July Goal - (Early August) there's an IH meetup I attend, I'd like to have an MVP of the RFM Modeling app that I'm building completed by then.

    Today, got the M portion of the model implemented.
