As a business builder you absolutely have to learn to balance the creative stuff with the business stuff.
This is something Chase Reeves is well versed in. He’s one of the hosts of the show and we get to know him in part 2 of the Meet Your Hosts series.
In this entertaining episode he shares some lessons learned as he navigated his career through media and project management stuff to reading LifeHacker.com for 10 hours a day to newborns and lay-offs and start-ups, oh my!
There’s much to glean from his colorful way of looking at these things. (five finger shoes, anyone?)
We have two big things to announce today.
First, we’re launching a podcast next Monday, June 3rd!
This is no ordinary business podcast. We’re shaking things up and taking a different approach from other shows.
You’ll get to hear what I mean starting next week. We’ll be releasing a brand new episode each day next week, starting with Monday’s episode on “finding your voice.”
If you’re building an online business or have been thinking about it, we would love you to save some time next week to experience the new show. We think you’ll like it, and we’d love to hear your feedback. [Continue reading…]
What’s your most burning question about building an online business?
What would you ask me and the Think Traffic team if you had our undivided attention for a few minutes?
It can be about tech, marketing, networking, finance, something behind-the-scenes, something “taboo,” or whatever you’re dying to know the answer to.
Take a minute to think about it. Really. [Continue reading…]
We’ve been busy over at Fizzle in the past couple of months and I wanted to share some exciting news with you.
If you haven’t heard about Fizzle yet, we call it “Honest Online Business Training.” We think it’s the best training library and community for online business builders anywhere.
And now, it’s available at a new simplified price.
In my first couple of startups, I built things in the traditional order: product first, then audience.
With Think Traffic, I started blogging first, then figured out which products and services to deliver to the audience that gathered here.
Which approach is better? Is it better to build an audience first, and then a product/service, or should you build a product first and find the audience later?
The very best posts from Think Traffic are now available in a special book called: Serious Traffic: Grow Your Income by Growing Your Audience.
We partnered with Hyperink to make this blog-to-book available on Amazon, Hyperink and Barnes and Noble.
This is an experiment in self-publishing for us. Hyperink has worked with several popular bloggers in the past, including Brad Feld, Dave Asprey, Jeff Atwood, Penelope Trunk and our friend Peep Laja.
They approached us about turning our best material from Think Traffic into a book, assigned us an editor and did most of the heavy lifting. I wrote a new introduction/conclusion and organized the posts into the structure you’ll see in the book.
The book is available for $4.95, and if you purchase on the Hyperink website, you’ll get 5 additional copies to send to friends who might also benefit from what we publish here at Think Traffic.
