Okay, folks, there was only one comment on last week’s Creatively Entrepreneurial post. Therefore, Nate Wells of Idaho is the only entrant thus far, in the drawing for the iPad and two iPod Touches. Reminder, the drawing will be held on July 4, 2013.
This week’s topic? It’s near and dear to my heart. Until you become an official business, and you have official sales, to official customers, and have established your official niche – you are essentially caught in entrepreneurial purgatory. You’re not stagnant, nor are you a full-fledged business. You are, say it with me, a FREELANCER, or a GURU!
I myself utilize Guru.com to land occasionally marketing and social media jobs, while R.G. Riles Co. tries to find and establish it’s niche in this market. In fact, shamelessly, here is the link to my Guru profile: http://www.guru.com/freelancers/Ad-Concepts-Advertising-Manager-Communications-Expert-Brand-Consultant-Publication-Production/California/Fresno/1504789
While my team and I establish our niche, we’ll take the odds and ends jobs and perfect the art of working together to create a product that the client is happy with.
This week’s Creatively Entrepreneurial Question is simple.
What did YOU do, or what DO you do, to get your first clients, establish your team, and establish your market and your niche in said market?
As we laid out the rules last week, here they are once more:
Between now and Thursday of the following week, you comment your answers, then on next Friday’s Creatively Entrepreneurial Question post, I put some of my favorite answers up in a pole for you to vote throughout the following week. The winner each week will be entered into a drawing, to occur on July 4, 2013, where I will be giving away some glamorous prizes!
One lucky winner will be shipped an iPad!
Two lucky winners will be shipped an iPod Touch.
The 2nd entrant into the drawing will be revealed 2 weeks from today, or July 20, 2012. Remember, unless there are an inordinate number of ties, this means the winners will have roughly at least a 3 in 50 chance of winning
Happy Friday everyone!!!
