John Gannon from GoingVC shares how he made $1mm in revenue as a creator
“One thing I didn’t realize until many years into my journey is how important it is to “go pro” before you think you’re ready. “
“But what I did do—like a pro would—was hire someone to help me out part-time with posting jobs to the blog.”
“There is one step to going pro that I neglected, and it hurt me: I was way late to the party in terms of spending money on ads to grow my email list. Like, eight years too late. I’m certain that delay cost me tens of thousands of subscribers.”
Big Idea: For most creators, publishing content is a part-time hobby that they will soon lose interest in. If your goal is to become a professsional creator, what would you do differently?
Would you invest more in design, paid advertising, hiring assistants and consultants? Successful creators are startups. Grow your business like a startup.
