How to Determine Your SMART Marketing Goals

A free template to help you create SMART goals and achieve them

When you’re planning your next week, month, quarter, or year, it’s crucial to set goals. By keeping a clear goal in mind, you’ll be able to see how you’ve progressed toward that goal and motivate yourself to put in the work along the way. 

Even when we know we need to set goals, it can be hard to know where to start. What’s realistic for your target time frame? Which metrics should you use?

SMART, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound, is a methodology that helps you establish concrete and achievable goals.

This template is available in both Excel and Google Sheets. It will walk you through setting a SMART goal step by step, calculate achievable, numerical targets for you, and help you evaluate the roadblocks standing in the way of achieving your marketing goals.
