What Do I Want?

There hasn’t been a ground swell of interest in my writing and photo business so far. That’s okay with me though. I am just trying to find a good way to use my talents without getting into a big commitment of time or structure in my life. I like the idea of writing and helping some smaller companies to achieve their goals – especially profit goals – but I understand that they are not likely to be looking on the internet for solutions. If I’m going to impact their business I’ll have to get out and sell. To a lot of people that might be off-putting, but I like selling and meeting people. What I am not totally sure about is my own commitment to getting that business. How much business do I want to deal with? I am pretty confident that I can sell the concept and am comfortable with the sales effort, but I do tend to sell to much. Once I start I’m afraid that I’ll feel like lightening up. So I need to get my thoughts straight and a strategy in place. As the title here states: “What Do I Want?”

As I suspected, this website is a sort of touchstone. A place were I can explain my thoughts and perhaps demonstrate some proficiency, but by itself it won’t close deals.

I am a writer with an interest in conveying meaning for customers through the development of storytelling about the business. This can be told with narrative, with photos, and with videos. Those are my interests. My history is in commercial construction. There I sold, managed, and developed business opportunities for large projects like airports, hospitals, museums, hotels, and the like. My wife and I travel. We have traveled through Europe many times, but we are closer to home now. We are using our camping trailer and our pickup truck to visit and enjoy the southeast at the moment. We shoot north or to the mountains in the really hot summer months, but we like the coastline too. We’re having a great time.

  1. I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. A blog can help demonstrate your proficiency in something but on it’s own its not a selling tool. I include a link to my blog on my business cards, share it on my Facebook page, Instagram account and also have a link in my email signature. If someone hasn’t met me personally then my blog gives them a chance to get to know me and my work a little better. Getting out to meet people gives me the opportunity to gather email addresses and connect via social media. I’m not so good at picking up the phone after I meet someone to try and get meetings – I’m much better at connecting other ways.
