“Every successful creator’s system contains the same three elements: Discovery, connection, and monetization mechanisms.”
Simple frameworks like this can be very helpful in prioritizing your key tasks.
‘If you don’t have something designed to attract the attention of new people on a consistent basis, your discovery mechanism needs some work.”
“Turning that person into an email subscriber is typically the most powerful connection you can have, but your connection mechanism could also be to get them to follow you on social media.”
“If you don’t have a specific path to eventual monetization, you won’t be able to build a sustainable creative career and will wind up a creative hobbyist instead of a creative pro.”
