Every Wednesday and Friday, I put out a fresh new podcast episode centered around helping you make a living with your passion. It’s being said, “This podcast sets the standard of what podcasting should be,” and that “every episode has at least 5 inevitable takeaways.”
Others are saying, “Put simply, I dare anyone to listen to one episode and not go on a binge listening spree.”
You’ll get tangible insights on creativity and business, delving into topics like growing your audience, making more money freelancing, marketing and selling products online, overcoming creative block, handling fear of failure, time management, and much more.
I guarantee you’ll come away from every episode inspired.
Once upon a time, I hated daily emails.
I thought daily emails were spammy and horrible. You probably do too. Why? Because you’ve experienced horrible, daily emails! Naturally, those are what you think of when you hear “daily emails.”
But if you’re interested in bass fishing, are you going to wake up tomorrow no longer interested in bass fishing? No, of course not. You’re going to look at your subscriptions and watch videos and read magazines and articles about bass fishing.
It’s the same with growing your business or hand lettering. The people interested in hand lettering don’t wake up the next day and look at their Instagram feed and say, “Why am I getting all of these lettering posts in my feed?! Get them out!” That’s preposterous. They’re going to consume because it’s what they’re interested in!
There’s no question that people will consume content in the area of their interest every single day. The true question is whether it’s going to be your content or someone else’s content.
In this episode I’ll tell you how I had people sending me messages begging me not to stop sending daily emails on hand lettering. I’ll also explain why you don’t have to write every day to send daily emails (it will make sense when you listen).
You’ll also learn how to beat me by two years because I foolishly (like you) resisted this idea for years and robbed my audience of a ton of value and also missed out on opportunities for revenue. If you learn this lesson from me, instead of the hard way, you’re going to be so far ahead.
Oh, and I make a new course live on the air right in front of you.
You’ve been thinking about going to conferences. You’ve heard people talk about these great events with awesome speaks and wonderful people.
You want to experience a conference but you’re just too shy. You don’t consider yourself a people person or at least, it’s exhausting to have to be ON for long periods of time.
You’re not alone.
I mean, chances are you probably ARE alone if you’re an introvert, but I’m speaking figuratively. All joking aside though, we made this episode especially for you.
I am the most introverted of the introverted. You wouldn’t know it. I used to stand behind the door for the entirety of class as a 6-year-old. I was deathly afraid of conferences and meetups.
Now, not only do I go to conferences and regularly speak at them, but I’m putting on my own conference at seanwes.com/conference!
This is crazy. What made the difference? What got me from there the here? In this episode, we dedicate it entirely to answering your questions about going to conferences. I guarantee the hesitations you have will be alleviated.
You may have heard about this little conference in cozy Columbus, Georgia called Creative South.
It’s like a well-kept secret. You certainly aren’t ever going to stumble across it accidentally because—let’s be honest—it’s practically in the middle of nowhere. You’re never just going to “find” yourself in Columbus, Georgia like you would San Francisco or New York City.
But there’s a certain southern charm and hospitality that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. You’ve never known friendliness until you meet the generous reception that is Creative South.
Having an audience is a powerful thing. With a relatively modest number of people dedicated to your brand and products, you can easily sustain yourself.
You don’t have to have millions or hundreds of thousands of followers—the beautiful thing about the internet is its ability to bring people with unique interests together. Even if you have a very specific focus, there are a ton of other people across the world that share those interests and that adds up quickly.
Yet, many people worry about narrowing their focus. It feels like you’re excluding a bunch of people! It seems counter-intuitive: What if the niche dries up? What happens if interest suddenly goes away?
The good news is, you don’t need to be afraid to niche down. If you’re about the people and serving their needs, you’re going to adapt naturally without even noticing it. You might suddenly realize you’re in a different industry because you followed the people—that makes you immune to an industry going away or drying up.
Why grow an audience? This is what growing an audience can do for you…
