“About Startup Blogging: Validate A Business Idea and Build Your Audience:
This book is based on the author’s journey as a blogger, writer, founder and parent to date.
It’s intended to help you solve real problems, for real people and focuses on:
– designing a blog around your values, interests and time commitments;
– creating content, sharing your ideas and seeking feedback; and
– defining what you offer, your ideal customer and launching your Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
It aims to help current and aspiring creatives, freelancers, bloggers, flexible workers, business owners and side hustlers with limited time.
This book is not designed for people who have an existing business and want to create a blog as a menu item on their website to drive traffic, otherwise known as content marketing.
You’re going to be learning about how the author has done the reverse–starting a blog, maintaining it through multiple iterations and big life changes. Over time, she’s used it to test business ideas based on her original content and conversations with people around the world.
What started as an online expat travel diary and a means for her to remain connected with family and friends abroad, turned into:
– media requests;
– guest speaking opportunities;
– connecting with strangers;
– advocating for issues she’s passionate about;
– validating business ideas;
– creating a growing community; and
– making a positive impact.
This is the magic of getting your ideas out of your head and into the world!
By the end of this book, you’ll have a clear idea of:
– what themes your blog will focus on;
– how and when you’ll create original content;
– who your ideal customer is and how you’ll reach them; and
– what solution you’ll offer, launch and test.
