I talk a lot about building your online platform. I really think ANYONE can start a little online business that can help them make a little money on the side, or raise their public profile or help promote their cause.
Anyone can do this. Anyone! This is more or less what Gary Vaynerchuk talks about it Crush It! You can just figure out what tiny little niche you love, and work on connecting with the other weirdos who love it too.
So I’m gonna do it. Are you busy August 8? Because I am going to be online that morning, and I thought you might want to join me.
On August 8 I will be setting up a new minisite LIVE online!
That sounds weird, right? So here’s the deal:
About a year ago I registered a URL for a little niche site I wanted to set up. I’ve been putting it off and putting it off because it involves creating a *bunch* of content that I just haven’t had time for. But I LOVE the niche – it’s so close to my heart and something I’m involved in anyway and (let’s be honest), if I can figure out some way to make it part of my business I will love my job that much more.
I’ve been brainstorming how and when to launch this little niche site….. But, the more I think about it, the more I realize some of you might be interested in what I’m doing and why I’m doing it.
So, Friday, August 8 at 9:30am PT I’m going to get on Google+ and do a LIVE hangout and show you what I’m doing to create this new site.*
I have no idea how long it will take, or what *exactly* will be included. I have a big to-do list, but I’m going to stay flexible. The site will be called TravelScrap HQ, and I’m pretty excited! I believe it will be recorded and I’ll put together my whole to-do list and related resources so you can launch your own minisite.
And the whole event is totally free! I hope you’ll join me!
Make sure you’re on my email list and I’ll send a reminder that morning.
*Note: Specific technical steps with secure info like setting up an email address and creating a Pinterest account will NOT be done live. But I will tell you about all of those steps and do everything that is *not* security related live.
