Can’t stick to casual blogging. Since there are so many activities to do, blogging does not end well, at least for now. Some learnings from my environment, and previous startups, such as Atlasmic or Wizlogo:

  • Subscription-based companies are easier to run and kickstart.

  • Do not focus on cheap-tier products, it is way harder to grow them (Getting 10,000 users to pay you 1$ is way harder to get 1 user to pay you $10,000).

  • Find the target audience first, do a “smoke-bomb” test by making landing pages, selling the product and then making it. It is not worth creating a project first and then waiting for sales, not in 2022.

    • Find a niche
    • Research SEO keywords with Ahrefs & look at the paid traffic cost
    • Make a landing page (preferably with a template from Webflow)
      • One to two pages
      • Clear value proposition in headlines
      • Trust proposition
      • Get demo buttons that redirect to the email collection form / Integration with Stripe + refunds on every payment (since you don’t have a product yet)
    • Buy ads to get initial traffic and see how it performs
    • Do not invest more than $5K (but see individually)
    • Be agile, don’t be afraid to leave the project and create another
  • Have a clear vision of your growth plan, and how much you plan to earn.

  • B2B is so different from B2C, no matter that it only differs by 1 letter.
