If you’re building an online business (or platform), you know that there are more marketing channels than you can possibly tackle alone. Knowing that, it’s important to focus where you’ll get real results.
Over the last two years, I wasted a mind-boggling amount of time trying many different marketing outlets—with limited success.
I spent weeks focused on Google+, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
I published a Facebook page (which I’ve since deleted), and studied Facebook advertising so I could market like one of the greats.
On top of that, I spent more time than I’d care to admit working towards 1,000 followers on Twitter.
As I learned in my recent $10,000 launch, an email list is a powerful asset—if you know how to set it up right. Most solutions are clunky, but I’ve found one that excels beyond any alternatives available.
I just finished moving the Unlock Your Theme email list over to ConvertKit, and I’m about to do the same for this blog.
I’ve used MailChimp since I started my email list two and a half years ago, mainly because it was free.
Overall my experience has been positive—but I now realize there was much I was missing, and I’m excited to be making this switch.
Believe it or not, blogging could be the key practice that makes your dream a reality. Many people know that, but think it’s because of the money. I’m here to tell you it’s about so much more than that.
I don’t know much about you, but I know one thing: you have a dream.
That dream is made up of the family, lifestyle, and career you’ve always wanted (but aren’t sure you’ll ever really have).
If you want to be one of the few who achieve that dream, you need to start blogging today.
Clear communication has always been key to teamwork success, but it’s especially paramount with the increasing popularity of remote-working teams.
As more teams go virtual, it’s become clear that email is a terrible way to communicate as a group.
Conversations taper off without resolution, long-winded emails are left unread, and people use ‘reply-all’ like it’s candy—cluttering up the same inbox where customer emails come in.
Slack was designed to fix this.
My wife and I made a surprisingly controversial decision last week: we announced our plan to delete our Facebook profiles, right before our son Damien was born.
Once we made the decision, we were excited—even relieved—to have finally made the choice.
Unfortunately, our friends didn’t all feel the same.
