Are you afraid to start your platform because you’re not sure of yourself? You might mess up? What if it’s not perfect? What will people think when they read? You don’t want to fail.
I felt the same way. As a matter of fact I’m still not totally in. I’ve started this blog but have yet to expand my reach to Twitter and Facebook. I personally wanted to wait until my blog was up and running before I invited my friends to join. Needless to say the first month has been slow but I have had some activity and I am becoming more comfortable with writing. It is my goal to interface with Twitter and Facebook by the end of the month.
You may think it would be better to hire out your blog set up. You could get somebody who knows what they are doing to do the work for you. While the expert could probably set up a really good page, there are some very good arguments for doing it yourself according to Michael Hyatt.
- No one knows your product better than you.
- No one is more passionate about your product than you.
- No one has more skin in the game than you.
- No one is likely to do it if you don’t.
Take responsibility for your success and invite others to join in. Things may start out a little shaky but they will get better as you build confidence in your abilities.
