Sometimes shipping it is the best market research

It’s common knowledge that each one of us have a book in us. I saw some random online marketing dude claiming, “there’s at least one online course in each of us.” The only thing I could think of was, “boy, times have changed.” One of the most common advise I hear from both the best […]

On creating value over content

Ironic it may seem but focusing on creating value has helped me see things differently. It definitely has helped me be more purposeful with the content I create, particularly the ones I share here and on socials. And the best part is that I’ve stopped caring about arbitrary stats, tactics, or traffic. Some may call […]

No input, no output

I don’t know about you but off-late, I’ve been feeling a whole lot ickier when someone mentions “content creation.” And I could almost die if they ask how I create content on a daily basis! I don’t! I share my observations through writing, speaking (including my podcast), and curating topics that interest me. Period. Yes, […]

They ask, you answer… redux

I still think answering the most pressing questions on your website is a great idea for small (yet busy) companies to create valuable content. I’ve talked about this before and there’s a great book about it too! More people are consciously putting out content in the name of content marketing. Right now, I believe that’s […]

With the ginormous amount of content out there (videos, audios, texts and what not) prolific content creator are always on the edge of yet another crises — no content. At least nothing significant to say. I get it. I face the blank page almost every other […]

Random thoughts are for real

Bumped into a former colleague yesterday. It was a chance encounter but a good one nonetheless. It’s great to catch up with someone from work after ages! He was blown away with the things I have been doing lately (it’s the usual stuff that you know of… but folks these days get easily impressed with […]

You don’t create to be consumed today but to be found someday

The number of views used to be the only metric that mattered when I started to write every day. I was obsessed albeit for just about 8 days before I began to focus on what matters the most — creating something meaningful for yourself. Not others, but yourself. It’s easy to get distracted by metrics, […]

Ever wonder where ideas come from?

Alright, this may disappoint you — I don’t know where ideas come from. Neither do you. Or the person next to you. Or your boss. Or even that guy everyone calls “creative” does. No, they are not a special snowflake. And if someone believes in a thing called an “original idea” is basically disillusioned. Trust […]
