Rich – met with a great startup Much Better Adventures based in a travel tech incubator in London. Made me realise I’m not thinking big enough with nomadengine.com in terms of convincing ski chalets or hostels to use the platform with their websites. MRR websites is a much better model than just selling internet marketing (productized) services but I’m cashflowing my expenses with client work so need to make sure the next biz I work on has significant upside, and at least $100k/m revenue potential with this duel. MBA were talking with VCs who mentioned that in terms of an exit the 3 valuable things are revenue (sales), software or data. With data in the travel space it would be things like behavioural buying habits of customers and I’m still interested in the lead gen space. Currently researching what the other travel tech companies are doing to see what I can come up with.
(09:05) Ben – managed to get a few thousand words written for the framework for idea validation which will start off as an ebook but will become an interactive course. This first phase should be done next week. Been getting started on email collection and also using the framework to create a health and fitness product too at the same time (for content for the framework). When framework launches he will also have an external product too.
NEXT WEEK IN 30 SECONDS
Rich – creating landing page for adwords traffic, whether that’s going to a sales page vs a squeeze page + autoresponder
Ben – finishing the written part of the framework and have a validated product idea to also work on, create landing page to collect emails
