Feminist Social Media | Thank You

Thank you!

We'll let you know as soon as Feminist Social Media is open for enrolment

In the menatime, why not follow me on social media?

Yesterday I wrote that you might not need a HUGE list to accomplish your revenue goal for 2024, and walked you through you a quick calculation for figuring out the actual list size you need.⁠
⁠
Today I want to follow up on that...⁠
⁠
What comes after the calculation? ⁠
⁠
Planning + Doubling Down.⁠
⁠
Now that you know the list number you need,(#putanumberonit), it's time to make a specific plan for achieving it. ⁠
⁠
That means devising a daily and quarterly plan of activities.⁠
⁠
🌺 What activities currently add people to your list? ⁠
⁠
1)	Make sure those activities include a call to action. (Eg put your newsletter link in your link tree, add hemlines to all your posts reminding people to sign up to your newsletter)⁠
⁠
2)	Double down on the ones that work for you. (Eg If Instagram works, post a specific “Hey! I have a newsletter!” post 1-3X a week and go Live in your Stories more; if blog posts work, publish more blog posts and add content upgrades to them; if live appearances work, host more in-person events, go on more podcasts and virtual events…)⁠
⁠
🌺 Put list-building events on your calendar every quarter⁠
⁠
Is there one event you could implement each quarter to add a couple hundred people (or couple thousand) to your list? (Eg challenges, free webinars, online summits…)⁠
⁠
Yes, List-building IS revenue building…⁠
and no, you might not need that big of a list to achieve your goal revenue. ⁠
⁠
And list-building doesn't happen by itself. ⁠
⁠
It's not about posting and hoping people sign up. It's about creating quarterly events and daily invitations so that people DO sign up.⁠
⁠
So...what's your plan?⁠
⁠
What are the daily invitations you're going to issue?⁠
⁠
What are the quarterly events you'll schedule?⁠
⁠

I’ve written before that business can inadvertently be a spiritual/self-development journey.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
But it can be even MORE than that.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
For culture-makers and people with social justice commitments, growing a business can (inadvertently) be a LIBERATION practice.⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Why?⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Because you have to unlearn all the capitalist myths and norms that are in your bones; heal them; and build alternative, justice-centered business practices into your platform, practice & business model.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
When you have a business, for example, you have to set prices & ask for money -- and if you belong to a group that is NOT supposed to have access to financial resources (people with racialized identities and women and queer folks and people with disabilities, AND, AND, AND) -- that can be viscerally uncomfortable. ⁠
⁠
It can become a roadblock that you have to deal with in order to move forward in your business development.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
That means in the course of doing business, it is GUARANTEED that you’ll have to explicitly confront and DISSOLVE your internalized oppression around money. ⁠
⁠
Hello, Liberation. Meet your friend, Business Growth.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Same with internalized sexism. In our culture, women are supposed to be decorative. We’re not supposed to advocate for our ideas or take up too much space. ⁠
⁠
But a successful online business REQUIRES visibility; thought leadership requires IDEAS. ⁠
⁠
So once again, in order to make their platforms and businesses work, women entrepreneurs have to confront & dissovle internalized gender oppression making them “play small”. ⁠
⁠⠀⁠
That’s why for some of us – culture makers, feminists, social justice advocates -- business CAN be a healing, liberation process.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Hello, Liberation. Meet your friend, Business Growth. Let’s flourish, together.⁠⠀⁠

I always feel a bit weird about these 'last-call' posts.⁠⁠
