I've been tracking various "key metrics" for my business for some time, but a few months ago I created a monthly report that summarizes all of the key activities and metrics like revenue, expenses, social media engagement, marketing efforts and such. I include a little summary of what I did do and what worked and what didn't work. I have to say that by doing this short exercise I realized that I accomplished so much that I often don't given myself credit for. Not everything worked out as planned, but seeing this monthly snapshot on paper has helped open my eyes!
Here's a short video where I walk you through what I do. You can also grab a free template of the monthly report I use by clicking here.
I'd love to hear about how you keep track of your key metrics to stay on top of your business? Or if you don't do this regularly, what are you going to start keeping track of today?
