In this episode of The 10k creator, Joe & Daren discuss the next phase in the content entrepreneur journey - 500-1000 email subscribers and making your initial money.
They talk about the importance of selecting a platform, why you need to create a consistent content publishing schedule, and how to craft offers for your audience to convert them into customers. Joe shares how he targets keyword phrases to own a niche online and how that has served his businesses in the past. Daren shares his experience trying to emulate creators with larger audiences by being everywhere at once - and how that impacted the growth of his business.
At this phase, you take the work that you did from episode 2 - discovering your sweet spot and identifying your content tilt - and turn that into momentum that will start growing your creative business. Joe recommends looking at and thinking about sponsors early on, and gives Daren a challenge to seek out sponsors for all of his creative projects. They discuss the differences and benefits to hourly rate work versus project rate consulting, and how to find your initial clients and customers.
