When you're growing anything in the online world – a blog, a business, a following around your passion - whatever it is, it can be hard to know what's working and what isn't.
To know where you should put your efforts, it's sometimes a good idea to think about what you're doing as a series of small experiments. Try something, see if it works, try something else, and repeat.
This month we'll be looking at the theme of experimentation and Stef will be releasing a series of short videos to get you thinking about how to work in an experimental way.
Makelight.com is an online learning membership site for creators, makers and doers.
A community of entrepreneurs, Instagrammers and bloggers all learning how to grow communities, online audiences and businesses around what we're passionate about.
Each month we have a Makelight Focus, and this is the focus for this month.
With videos, guest appearances, live Q&As and articles on the monthly topic, we delve into an area of interest and see what we can all learn!
Emily Quinton has won a blogging award, secured a book deal through her online writing, spoken at blogging conferences, been featured on lots of blogs and in many more magazines… and turned her blog into a business that convinced Stef to quit his thing to join her full time!
Emily is passionate about helping people who have an idea for a passion business to turn it into reality.
Stef Lewandowski is a designer and technologist and has helped Emily to build and design the Makelight.com you see around you today.
Stef teaches in an accessible way about how to use just enough technology, in a simple way, to achieve what you're aiming for. His "just get something working quickly, then iterate" approach is how we've built Makelight, and it's something he really hopes to inspire in others.
It's going to be a great month of learning and should really help to give your passion project a boost. It's our whole membership focus for this month, so we hope you'll sign up and join in! Don't miss out!
Emily and Stef xo
