Things are moving.
And because today was action-packed, let's jump right in.
THE URGE TO START PUBLISHING CONTENT
The reason I have not created any content yet* is that I wanted to figure out what to create. For example, if I'm going to focus on the marketing niche - I need to create content toward that. (*this is a lie 😯)
I needed more clarity on what is on top of the mountain.
at the same time, I feel the urge to start publishing content.
I'm not feeling the pressure to publish. It's just an urge. Like - it's time.
What am I going to publish? And where?
Writing marketing-related articles doesn't excite me.
Creating a visual quote is off the mark.
✍ So, I wrote a Medium article about the beginning of this project.
I wrote it as a test with the purpose of starting to spread the word out about this project.
Hold the phones!
(🤣 I'm not sure if this saying works these days...)
What am I doing here?
Aren't I already creating content? Right here? Right now?
These daily logs, the articles, that's content, right?
✍ And I wrote a DEEP DIVE about Subscription as a Service with a high price-point offering to figure out if this is what I should offer.
Extremely useful exercise!
I now know the answer.
Yes or No?
What do you think? Is this option still on the table or not?
Check out the Deep Dive for details, examples of businesses successfully using this model, and why/why not I chose to eliminate this option. Yep, it's gone.
Clear as day. A clear, sunny day. 🌞
I also phoned a friend. An amazing, thoughtful, brilliant friend, who shares their honest thoughts and feedback. I appreciate you.
Result = Increased Clarity
Now I have to:
1️⃣ Work through the other revenue models, just to make sure I'm not missing anything (although I feel it's not necessary)
2️⃣ Make some adjustments 👉 Marketing niche is off the table. (more on this later)
This, this right here. Is the way.
And yes, I do love the Mandalorian 😊.
💡 I feel this is the way.
I'm moving in the right direction.
When I went to bed, I was so excited I couldn't sleep. I have a direction.
DAY 007 ROUNDUP
⏳ TIME = 6 hours | total = 32 hours
🧾 COST = $108 | total = $108
💰 REVENUE: $0
1️⃣ Wrote a Medium Article
2️⃣ Wrote a Deep Dive - Subscription as a Service 💲💲💲 price-point model
3️⃣ Making progress
📝 From now on I'm going to include all of this writing into the TIME spent category.
📝 Every day I process a large amount of information. This includes reading e-mail newsletters, podcasts, articles, watching videos, etc. This is my research and this is how I learn > make connections and discoveries.
🧩 PUZZLE PIECES
As you are working through the process, don't forget you. You are a large piece of the puzzle.
