There are more devices, channels, personalities, companies, and organizations competing for our attention than ever.
And whether it’s blogging, podcasting, or making videos, it’s no longer the Wild West. Now we occupy a world of expectations. And where those expectations go unmet, audiences disengage.
What do we do now that the bar is higher than ever? What does it mean for content creators and artists? How can we continue to get ourselves and our works out into the world? Does our passion still mean something when it doesn’t produce the expected outcomes in terms of audience, independent income, or otherwise?
In this episode of Thought Thursday, I introduce the topic, offer context, and share one of the reasons the bar is elevating higher faster.
I still hold to the notion that your own blog is the best place to put your own content. That said, modern writing platforms offer quite a bit in terms of monetization and exposure. Medium, specifically, has been getting plenty of press in the last few years.
But if you’re just getting on Medium now, you’re probably arriving a little late to the game. Even 2020 and 2021 were tough years to try to build a following, get traffic, and monetize your stories.
So, in this episode of Thought Thursday, I compare Medium to Tealfeed and consider which is the superior blogging platform.
The allure of social media and big promises of engagement, followings, and sales brought you to the giants – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, and so on.
But. Even after implementing all the latest best practices and strategies, you’re still having trouble seeing what all the fuss is about. Results aren’t forthcoming, and it’s not as though any of these platforms are out to help you.
That’s where I was at as I began exploring the new horizons of the latest free speech and decentralized networks. Eventually, I came across BitClout, which is a growing decentralized network that, when properly understood, looks far more attractive than the platform it took inspiration from – Twitter.
Here I compare Twitter to BitClout and consider which is better for new users.
This week, I launched a beginner guitar program called the Chord King Course, and in this episode of Thought Thursday, I wanted to share why it was created, who it’s for, and what to expect on the inside.
In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been going live on Wisdom, and I wanted to invite you to join the platform and follow me so you can tune in and ask questions.
This week’s episode is short and sweet, and I hope you enjoy it!
One of my favorite software solutions (funnel builder / course platform / membership site), 10XPro, is currently running a promotion, and I have been sharing it with my audience, specifically the Music Entrepreneur HQ email list.
One of my websites, Content Marketing Musician, was built on 10XPro. And I couldn’t be more thrilled by its features, user friendliness, and overall experience for creators and customers alike.
I had some questions about this 10XPro promotion. Some apparently wondered whether it was scam. Others thought it was too expensive.
So, in this episode of Thought Thursday, I tackle these issues head on, offer some problem-solving recommendations, and give you an inside look into the current promotion.
