Sometimes, with my daily focus on my writing aspirations Startup City can seem neglected. It is not. This idea I will be working on, implementing, changing and perfecting over many years. It is like a giant oil tanker. It changes direction very slowly but small changes in direction can have a huge impact over time in where the tanker ends up.
Im struggling with how to position the idea and who might be interested in following and learning about it. That has to happen. Appetite has been tepid across social media platforms so I have to own that. It’s an out there idea, but one whose time has come I believe. How do I sell that to others? I don’t know yet.
Different strategies for different platforms. More aggressive interactions with Twitter users in my target space. Making Facebook page open.
Adding a startup city page on my website would be awesome and is on the schedule. Then I can drive traffic to my website from my books.
Finally, publishing two books about the city state should help perk up interest.
I believe this multipronged approach will gain me the most quality supporters. We can then try to raise money for the new city based on this reservoir of goodwill.
Man I missing something? Let me know in the comments.
