In our last blog post we talked about our new showcase for helping solopreneurs to make a living on their own terms by creating a successful business through reaching an audience online.
And we asked for your help – because we want (this time), to make sure it is going to be something you want and that will help you get you to where you want to be be – quicker and with fewer and less costly mistakes! (All solopreneurs make mistakes – it is part of the process).
So here is our idea – let us know what you think …
We want to follow the stories of 3 solopreneurs in a new 11-part reality web series series – either who have a business idea and are just starting to build an audience online, OR who have started – maybe are a year or two in – but are stuck and need help to get real momentum.
We will create a 90 day plan with our three podcast participants and follow their story over the three months of the plan. We want to show how three individuals with a passion to create their own business, deal with steps to make that happen.
We will be helping them to hone their audience, helping them to create awareness with that audience, that they have something to offer that can help them, how to capture that interest and convert them into paying customers. We look at the technology they need, how to show what makes them unique, build trust. How to predict and track visitors and sales. Ultimately, how to build a semi-automated sales machine that will work for them consistently and predictably and that will enable them to live the kind of life they want, on their terms.
The idea is to bring in additional experts to help them with various aspects of their business as needed, whether that be ecommerce, branding, mindset issues, whatever they need. And we will see if we can successfully help them launch upward on the journey towards financial autonomy – or will they crash and burn?
Each participant will work with us behind the scenes and will be recorded 3 times each. Our ‘season’ will consist of an introductory show, 9 interview shows, and a wrap-up show to see how everyone did, making a total of 11 weekly shows for a season (possibly 2 seasons per year).
We also want our viewers to participate as well. We shall be doing weekly challenges, based on the challenges the show participants are going through. Viewers can post their challenge homework to a dedicated Facebook Group and will be awarded points. Prizes will be awarded to the people who gain the most points over the season. That way, the viewers can ‘play along’ and make progress on their own businesses, benefiting from the advice given on the show.
We are also looking to do a weekend live event for 6 more participants who want to go through the process but don’t want to be on a ‘reality show’. This will be a 3 day intensive, pretty much going through the same process but over three days and will have ongoing email support for the full 90 day period.
So what do you think? Is this something you would watch? Participate in?
Would you want to be a web reality show participant?
Would you prefer to come to a weekend live event instead?
Is there anything you would like to see added?
What would YOU look for in a 90 day program?
This is not set in stone for us – if no-one wants it we won’t create it – we don’t want to make THAT mistake again. And we are happy to entertain changes in the program. So let us know what you think…
If the feedback is positive, on Tuesday we’ll let you know more about who we are looking for to participate on the show…
