We all have to choose again, if we get burned the first time but want what we want enough.
These customers, for whom I have built websites, seem to be a good fit for a product – and then again …
One guy is the younger man who buys domain names, advertisement campaigns and new sites and plugins, and doesn’t use all of them by half. He might be a good fit for this product. At the very least he would buy it and shelf it like many of his other purchases … :-}
Another is the middle-aged female lifestyle blogger, who had a lot of trouble getting started on WordPress but who is determined to do everything herself (and has to, because of a small budget). That includes marketing and business in general. In fact, I think she might be a better fit, if we all agree that it is the highest goal for people to actually use this product after purchase.
I am tempted to say it is not the highest goal, because I sorely need money now. And I can’t take responsibility for people’s use and non-use of what I sell them.
OTOH again: If I am not aspiring to my highest goals on The Blog, then there is nowhere else to do it.
I have to keep myself accountable here.
I have talked in general about entrepreneurship and my webdesign business. I have not really tried to connect in English with other WordPressers out there.
I’m not going to blog about all the technical stuff or guides or anything. And I’m not going to comment much about colleagues’ blogs about that.
But there are other colleagues/competitors who have great blogs of a more general nature about the business and about life and the business.
I’m going to find them.
And connect with them, too.
Perhaps that is what I need to get more of this connection stuff going.
Once you get those first few people to pay you money for a job well done, your confidence automatically rises. And suddenly options don’t seem so limited anymore.
In general: I don’t leave people.
And I do keep promises.
And I do do my best to help, even if it means making someone happy that they have a nice-looking webshop despite soon having to close the real shop.
That’s what I do and that’s who I am. And somehow that feels quite all right.
