#44 Weekly Dan — 5 Marketing Problems I Want to Solve
My comeback to #BuildInPublic
This is the #44 Issue of Weekly Dan.
Every Tuesday, I share an actionable essay for Solopreneurs.
Today let’s talk about lessons from my no-code plans.
I need to pick the first Bubble product to build.
As tempting as building a “revolutionary” social media can be, I will stick to more reliable ideas. I will solve marketing problems that I know for sure are painful.
And today, I want to share 5 marketing problems I have in mind. I got them from 3 years of building startups and working with dozen of Solopreneurs.
Terrible landing pages
I’ve tried to solve this problem. I’ve launched MakerBox Roasting, written multiple articles, and posted countless tips on Twitter.
And there is still an ocean full of awful landing pages that don’t convert.
I don’t accept the status quo — we, Indie Entrepreneurs, deserve better landing pages. Those that tell a story, paint a desirable picture in the customer’s head, and close sales on the spot.
My idea — generate new Heading 1 with AI to sell positioning better.
My personal headache.
As much as I love creating content, I hate getting backlinks. Because it’s so annoying to spam people and time-consuming to actually find these people.
But your SEO progress will be 2-3 times slower without backlinks. So, you either get backlinks or forget about free traffic.
My idea — marketplace of Solopreneurs’ blogs to exchnage backlinks
Content ideation takes too much time
Nobody wants to read AI-generated content.
The process of creating something new is inseparable from the Creator. But not every part of this process is exciting.
Brainstorming new tweet ideas is tiring. You tend to think of topics you have already covered. Because it’s easy to write the same thing than to come up with something creative.
My idea — AI-generator of tweet ideas for Twitter Creators (but they create content themselves to make it more personalized)
No one says, “it’s dumb”
Solopreneurs work alone.
There is no one to stop them when they do something stupid (and this happens a lot)
Vision is essential, but fixing its blind spots with feedback is even more critical.
My idea — product and marketing sprints with 3 random Solopreneurs
Solopreneurs hate talking to customers
Let’s face it — we don’t talk enough with our customers. You know it. I know it.
But we can also agree that this is the single most important thing to build something people want.
My idea — platform to run asynchnous video interviews with customers
This issue is a big comeback to #buildinpublic for me.
I will try to execute the first idea in February. Will share my progress on Twitter.
