Roberto Blake spoke at Shutter Fest Extreme 2017 and his topic was turning your passion into profit, crucial advice when starting a business that runs off your passion. It has been hard for me to turn a profit with this website since I started it four months ago.
Some of the key points Roberto highlights are:
Reading: is fundamental.
Video: Youtube can benefit your business.
Social Media: Gone are the days where you only advertised in the paper, social media is the digital way to promote.
Convince: Convince your customers that what you’re doing is a solution to a problem of theirs.
Passion: Make sure you have the passion.
Intentions: Good intentions matter.
Commit: Commitment is key!
Personal Brand: Your brand and who you are matters.
Consistency: Be consistent in what you’re doing.
Risk: Be confident enough to take risks.
Align: Align your passion with practically.
Waste: Stop wasting social media and use it to get paid.
Turning Your Passion Into Profit
Roberto Blake has successfully built a youtube channel and his personal brand while helping others build their channels, brands, and businesses.
He believes that if you don’t love what you do then your idea is not sustainable, which I agree because when starting out your passion is going to be the only thing left standing when the process gets tough.
Success does not happen overnight.
We often see the success of others
We don’t see the A/B testing.
We don’t see the actual tears of stress.
The questions that are doubtful.
Again, the process is tough
I can’t stress it enough
It is SO Rewarding once successful.
