My Next Project: Generous Vending

While at FEEcon 2019, my mind was completely taken over by the idea of starting a social enterprise. In order to help organize my thoughts and test the practicality of this idea, I’m going to pretend that some investor/other interested person was questioning me about the business. This post will serve as the idea’s earliest form of public documentation. Anyways, I’m going to call it… Generous Vending! (Or something along those lines… Not 100% on…

[Video] Analyzing the Marketing Copy of Three Similar Products

In this post, instead of writing a break down of different examples of good and bad marketing copy, I decided to record a video. WinRAR, WinZip, and HamsterArchiver all offer a similar product but have very different styles of copywriting on their various landing pages. After analyzing and learning from each of them, I came up with a few critiques.

As an avid Gary V follower, I often hear the phrase “marketers ruin everything”.

Considering Drop Shipping? Know What You’re Getting Into!

More Than Just a Team

A couple of weeks ago, the entire office where I worked was laid off. Over thirty associates, some of which had worked there for over ten years, lost their jobs and said their goodbyes. Although this was an emotional time for everyone involved, the experience helped me realize something that I’ll never forget: the people in that office were more than just co-workers, they were a family. Many companies try to replicate what my previous…
