We hear in the online marketing world to create something that our customer wants.
I say poo-poo to that. How bout creating something that YOU would want?
The best and easiest way to sell something is to 100% believe in it.
Creating something you’d want/need is the best way to believe in the product of your creation.
If you were to create the Ultimate eCourse experience that YOU would love to participate in, what qualities/elements would be most important for you? What would the end result be (ultimate transformation)?May 9, 2016 at 1:36 pm #22117

YES! Fantastic point @forestspirit.
This is exactly HOW we came to the idea of creating the Great eCourse Adventure.
We asked ourselves if we would’ve bought our old boring Blueprint program and both @andyfreist and I answered no.
This inspired us to ask what our Ultimate Learning Experience would be that we’d actually pay money for.
The result: We created the wildest, most creative, fun, engaging eCourse Adventure we could possibly imagine.
It’s been a f%&^ing blast and our lives have transformed in the best ways we can imagine because of it.
Asking THIS QUESTION you mention is soooo important!!
Thank you.May 9, 2016 at 6:32 pm #22148
Fer me, it’s all about making media that is fun to watch.
It’s like creating a world for people.
Every detail must be thought of when creating this world…
What is the setting and background?
What is the emotion in the video?
What is the lesson being taught?
How can you create movement (camera cuts, angles, actual walking or movement, etc..)
What is the background sound to bring the setting to life?
Is there music?
There are so many tiny details that go into it.
This is how we create worlds!May 10, 2016 at 11:26 am #22175
I used to sell things that people didn’t need as a way to get richer than Donald Trump. It was like selling my soul though. Everyday I’d fuel my progress with coffee, just to keep me going. Fortunately, I’ve seen the light.
I will only sell things I believe in, would use and find valuable now. It is the only way.
And God knows I’m gonna get rich doing it!May 10, 2016 at 10:12 pm #22210
For me, being a part of a tribe, or community that has a similar purpose is important. Not just for the sake of having a tribe, because that is important, but having a mutual purpose is key. It gives you something to initiate conversation and connection.
I don’t like to play competitive, one person wins, games anymore. I prefer the cooperative ones. For instance, Pandemic is a favourite. Not only do all of the players work together to win, but you are saving the world at the same time. You can’t get any better than that.
There was a thread of talk months ago about how a lot of us are here to remind or teach adults how to play again. Structured play, with others, where hikers join in to create or accomplish something together sounds a bit awesome.
I love Maestro Conference, where you have the capacity to break people out into small groups during classes. I can’t afford it, but would love to do stuff like that.
One part of the ultimate result would be not being isolated anymore. Having a community that supports you in getting your talents and passions out into the world.May 11, 2016 at 5:16 pm #22275

Awesome points Akasha.. We are definitely exploring how to create more of a collaborative group dynamic around here 🙂May 11, 2016 at 6:04 pm #22279
@Akasha : “I don’t like to play competitive, one person wins, games anymore. I prefer the cooperative ones. For instance, Pandemic is a favourite. Not only do all of the players work together to win, but you are saving the world at the same time. You can’t get any better than that.”
I’m in complete agreement with this one, and really enjoying coming into a new world where the “new” rules of symbiotic co-operation (actually the original rules) are permitted.
“There was a thread of talk months ago about how a lot of us are here to remind or teach adults how to play again. Structured play, with others, where hikers join in to create or accomplish something together sounds a bit awesome.”
I like this too. I admit that I’ve been going round in circles (spirals?) lately getting clearer on what I don’t want to do but not entirely sure what I would do. It’s coming though. The play part is important. And a sense of entering a more fun version of reality. I was reflecting today that I signed up with the great e course adventure because I loved the feel of it, and wanted to be part of a fun thing — but at the same time the idea I’d learn to create something of (monetary) value was what gave me the permission to pay for it.
Now I’m wondering what I’d pay for that was more directly just a fun learning experience without needing that permission part. What that might look like. A kind of “come on in over here the water’s great” experience.
I know that it has to be about bringing magic back into people’s worlds/returning them back through a gateway into a magical world that’s already here. That’s a common theme across a lot of the people. Jeff and I have started doing cool things with Virtual Reality too! possibilities just exploding.May 12, 2016 at 9:42 am #22309
