The workshop outline

Here’s a bit more detail on the workshop I’m running next month.First, let me tell you where this workshop fits into the big picture.I’m trying to help self-employed software developers do 2 things in their business: 1) identify an effective way to specialize and 2) learn to generate leads for their services.They do have to happen in that order! The lead generation will be a waste of time if it’s not focused, and that’s what the specialization does. The specialization also helps you cultivate exceptionally valuable expertise over time.So over the coming months you’ll see me offering 3 workshops over and over again (and also turning them into self-study self-guided courses at a lower price point). Here’s the overall structure:positioning services - Experiential marketing learning for independent consultantsThe workshop I’m running next month is the first one on that diagram, and in 4 weeks it will help you move from uncertainty about how you might specialize to clarity and confidence about your best 2 options for specializing.Here’s a high-level outline for the workshop:√ Specialization Part 1: Decision-making√ Background InfoVideo:√ How you decide how to specialize√ Inventories√ Assess risk tolerance√ Assess market insight√ Discussion/Q&A Meeting (9am Pacific time, March 7, 2018)Action:√ Complete inventories√ Complete risk assessment profile√ Create a shortlist based on inventories & risk-tolerance√ Discussion/Q&A Meeting (9am Pacific time, March 14, 2018)Action:√ Superficial validation of top few shortlisted options√ Market size√ Credibility√ Choose a Plan A and a Plan B√ Discussion/Q&A Meeting (9am Pacific time, March 21, 2018)√ Action√ Build site around Plan A√ Problem√ Promise√ Proof√ Proposition√ Extract the headline into a positioning statement√ Final Discussion/Q&A Meeting (9am Pacific time, March 28, 2018)√ (Optional) Insight remediation√ Next workshop: Market Insight√ You’ll get a discount√ Only consider it if you’re unhappy with your level of market insight as evidenced by the site-building workSo there you go.
