Many people would ask “why would you risk your check to build something you aren’t sure will be successful?”. Don’t most entrepreneurs do that everyday?
This year I told myself that I would take more risks. Whether it be a career switch (which I did), or invest more into stocks, real estate, or even myself, this is me taking risks.
I have two startups that I’m rolling out. One named JemPost and another called JemSplash.
Both dope, both cool. These are two affordable platforms that can be used with each other hence why I kept them under the same umbrella “Jem”.
What does Jempost do?
Jempost will be used to schedule your posts/tweets via Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook (business page or groups only not personal pages) in a unique way. We will be using data to allow you to get past writers block, keep you on trend as much as possible – if need be, and provide useful tips and feature to grow your engagement which we will share closer to launch date.
Okay nice, now what does JemSplash do?
Jemsplash is a marketplace for digital creators solely focused on giving content creators a platform to sell their digital products with impeccable upsell features to hit their revenue goal. We will provide a tool internal to see if their reaching their KPI meters. This is an amazing way to keep on track of your weekly, monthly, or yearly goals.
Example: Bree releases a eBook teaching DJ’s how to make money during the quarantine.
Monthly revenue goal: $300
Alongside…more basic and advance (beta version) features will be available but, I will give you more juicy tips as the date gets closer.
What inspired me? Data.
Data always shows me all possible options to growing my solopreneur business. The more engagement I receive on these platforms, the more booked I get for gigs, speaking, consulting, contracting, and more. Skills is always an essential part of my business but putting myself out there and setting goals is key.
So, $1,200 paid for all of this?
No. See, I am rolling out a MVP. I am bootstrapping much of my work and working with designers/developers who want this to be an ongoing project. Coming from a Project Management background, I have some connections with outsourced designers/developers who see my vision and want to be a part of something that will grow gradually.
So again, no I didn’t spend it entirely on this – but, a good portion.
Should I fundraise?
I really think I should. I’d love to spread the word about more so my marketplace concept because that will need more funds to make it grow. Leaning on my community of followers, and connections isn’t a bad idea.
Who would I love to see on these platforms?
Just kidding – obviously this is a great platform the following:
