3 Ways to Hold Yourself Accountable for Your Social Video Goals

Megan O'Neill


Creating a strategy and sticking to it can feel overwhelming, but if you’re ready to make your mark on social media in 2018 we’re here to help. We’ve put together three tips for holding yourself accountable for your social video goals.

#1: Set reasonable goals

It can be easy to get overwhelmed if you set expectations for yourself that are too high. That’s why it’s important to set reasonable goals. We talked about this in a post earlier this month on making the time for social video. Be honest with yourself. How much time can you reasonably allot to social video marketing? The more realistic you are, the easier it’ll be to hold yourself accountable and stick to your goals.

#2: Document your goals

Don’t rely on memory. To keep yourself accountable, document your goals and milestones—and stick to them.

Block out actual time on your calendar. This’ll ensure you don’t forget to make the time to work on  your social video strategy. And use task management tools like Wunderlist or Trello (or, if your the traditional type, a notebook and pen) to make lists and keep track of to-dos.

#3: Find an accountability buddy

Finally, you don’t have to rely just on yourself to make sure you follow through on your plan. An accountability buddy can help! Accountability buddies are friends that help hold each other accountable. They check in with each other to make sure they’re sticking to their goals.

Don’t have an accountability buddy in mind? Not to worry! We’re here for you. We’ve got a private Facebook group, the Animoto Social Video Marketing Community, filled with members just like you that are creating videos for their businesses and looking for inspiration and support.
