I really don't like to market or do sales. But I need to use the remainder of this month getting together the branding of the Intellectual Will journal. I need to send out my brand kit and make some video highlights from my fireside chat.
I consider October 1st until now the soft launch of the Intellectual Will journal. I'm collecting feedback and gaining insights, but now I need to take action on that information.
I want to place an order for the journals by February, so between now and February I need to work on getting speaking engagements, bulk orders, and a little buzz.
I've done well so far with the pre-orders and the digital purchases, but I could do a little better.
Eventually, I will hire someone to help me with marketing and sales, but for now, I'm on my own. I did weigh the pros and cons of self-publishing and originally was going the traditional route, but decided to do it myself. I am happy I am doing it myself, it gives me something to do; a way to work my creative side.
