Before you tie the knot , you need an Engagement
There was a time when I used to feel that there are people (even idols) who have huge fan following, who are asked for interviews and other speaking engagements. Their work sure was great and creative but the stats of their followers was kind of daunting for a new person. But I was lucky to have still followed my passion. It drove me and acted as my guiding compass. I cared less about the number of followers I had but I was more focused on the content that my existing followers get from my blog. Hoping, eventually this would lead to the safest (free as well) mode of marketing – Word of Mouth.
Over Time , I realized, not all people had the same attitude towards their fears. I realized a lot of my friends stopped blogging, posting videos on their YouTube Channel, etc. And that is when I thought that I might not be the best blogger yet ,but I can still create a platform/ a section on my blog that introduces and showcases the work of these budding Entrepreneurs who actually love what they do but don’t have the resources to buy followers or proper contacts that can help them grow.
Rendezvous with Creativeness
Rather than just sitting over this thought, I decided to act on it. I contacted a few people, got the interviews scheduled with a few such entrepreneurs and it still is very hard for me to explain in words how the experience was. Earlier what impressed me and at the same time induced fear in me ..was the fan following of famous bloggers, YouTubers etc. But after a few interviews with budding Entrepreneurs I got the same astonishing feeling, looking at how a single person could perform so many tasks that are generally performed by a group of people.It’s so rightly said, how people now are getting into the statistics of inorganic reach! Most of you might feel that I would have a different perspective if I was a celebrity blogger but I still feel there is a lot more creativity that needs to come out. I personally feel that all the platforms are biased towards people who are famous. Their videos and posts are always on the topmost searches.
Content is King
- I know that this is for the consumers who need the best content but is this way good enough?
- Will the people with most followers always have the best content?
- Is it logical for new entrepreneurs who have great skills and content to be showcased at the 4th or 5th or even 100th page?
- What if as a consumer I wanted to look for new talent on a particular topic?
- What if as a consumer I wanted to give my project to a new person who has the zeal to perform?
- Is there a platform that helps me find such talent easily to collaborate with?
The BIG Picture
The answer to so many questions has been dicey, but platforms still work on following and reach figures and no matter how good you may be, unless you attain those figures , you may or may not reach the zenith. Trust me there are so many people who fear to leave their creativity as they are caught in a dichotomy of mixed emotions and fears. They don’t have anyone to guide them or show the real picture.
Well, We Now Do… its my idea which I started called CreativEntrepreneurs which will help you network, collaborate , showcase your creativity and unleash your portfolio without bothering of the number of followers and reach you have! India is a land of diverse creativity and when we all club together , it would be a chain reaction of ideas. Creativity should never be preceded with a period , rather it should go on exponentially. I don’t know how much of a difference , I could make ,but if it could kickstart someone’s motto, move forward and never look back would definitely bring me a smile 🙂
Lets unravel the CreativEntrepreneurs and make every impediment a milestone to success! I have been working on this since 1 year… finally launching the section on my blog and social media. That’s what has been keeping me busy all this while. Documenting , meeting people and interacting with them, knowing their dilemmas and hurdles.
