- When figuring out your niche, listen to people who are willing to pay for the solutions they’re searching for.
- Just because you’re an expert, it doesn’t mean your first (or second) product is going to be a big hit. Expect revisions to be required.
- Blogging in 2019 is different than the “wonder years” before 2016. You can still be successful, but you need to blog about a very specific, narrow niche to get the right attention.
- When creating a lead magnet, think backward from the type of product or service that you offer, and use a very similar format.
- Defy expectations from audiences’ limiting beliefs. Provide value that surprises them.
