First of all, thank you for your time!
I am one man, who is very passionate and loves to discuss the news on a fun, interesting, and objective basis. No BS here.
I'm also professional, and want to create a very READER friendly, and SHARE friendly, blog discussing interesting current news and ideas.
Through this blog, I am looking to develop my PERSONAL BRAND as a passionate person and business expert via news analysis.
I want to build community, both on the blog and on my Twitter account, while also promoting my startup company: M33 Advisory, a Business Strategy Firm.
I will take my readers on a journey through the startup process, as well as discuss current business events and strategy.
Thus, the main goal of my blog - personal brand development, and deliver awesome content to my readers.
I am targeting business owners, entrepreneurs, corporate workers, and general business people, including those who work in finance/markets, marketing, etc.
I want this site to be professional and entertaining, so probably the 25-45 year old demographic.
This demographic is just dying for interesting content. However, their attention spans are very, very short. So I need to really captivate them.
1. The Goal: to really develop my own personal brand. I want to achieve this though DeleverMe, which others can rely on for witty commentary on Business, Finance, and starting a business. I want to take my readers on a journey of starting my business, and discuss current news and ideas.
2. Come Back Functions: Incredibly important buttons to capture the reader and make them come back: "Subscribe to Email" "Follow Me" "Become a Fan"...Somewhere on the side or top where it's easily accessible.
3. Share Functions: I would like all content to be easily shared, via the usual suspects "E-Mail This" "ReTweet This" "Digg" and others. Not messy, but should be very prominent.
4. Contact Me: I need a big fat button in a prominent place that says something to the effect of: "Let's Do Business", perhaps with my M33 logo (M33 Advisory 2.eps) in order for them to contact me and to learn more about my company, M33 Advisory.
5. Content Type: Please note that I plan on incorporating all 3 mediums: written, audio (podcasts), and video. Perhaps we can have a space for a daily video??? This would be cool if it fits in.
Here are some good sites currently incorporating some of the above:
I'll upload the logo for M33 Advisory, and pictures of me just in case. But again, the site name is "DeLever Me"
Thank you very much!
Please contact me if you have any questions.
