While this may seem to be overstating the obvious, I am amazed at how many startups I meet with and ask, “where the fuck is your blog?”
The general response is… and general answer back is…
1. It takes too much time:
You don’t have to post daily. Write something once a week.
2. We have nothing to say:
Oh yes you do.
You’re disrupting an industry, you’ve got your pulse on beta users, studying industry research, getting help from mentors, and much more.
3. We are not in sales mode.
Even better. Your goal is not to sell anything. Your goal should be to be helpful and a resource to the media on your particular market segment.
4. We’re still in stealth.
Stay in stealth.
Maybe you illustrate your humanity and share some of the struggles, the joy and the changes you are going through in bringing your startup to life.
