Brett Kissel talks about how so many people who are creatives ignore the business side of what they do.
He said, "That's just a really big mistake b/c you're depending on somebody else to build, run, and grow your business. And that's a problem. If you had to pick what's more important, the creative or the business side, well, you know what comes first!
In this case, the business doesn't really work if you're not any good. So you have to be really good.
Once you've got the creative side down, you have to have business acumen. You have to know how to #grow, build a #following, handle your #finances, how to get #branddeals, find the right #management team, the right #agent, get yourself booked…be a salesman!
“So much of what I do is basic salesmanship.”
He shares that when he was 16 he went down to the car dealership and negotiated himself a free truck. And what he was willing to do for that free truck.
That was his first brand deal and just getting started but he knew how to negotiate and how to craft himself as a barter asset in terms of getting other people to do things or expose your product or services to things.
I think this all comes around this idea of your brand is a business.
It's not just about messages and pretty pictures. And well, it is…but so much more.
RV: Any company, any business has a product, right?
And the #product is super important. You got to have a beautiful, well-functioning, whatever.
The thing that Brett said that was really powerful and important is he said:
Your brand deals are going to win if you can talk about products that you authentically and genuinely are excited about.
What could you be #excited about?
What are the things or the #products you actually use?
And just approach those people and say, “Hey, I've got a #platform.”
You don't have to have millions of followers. Like #microinfluencers are a big part of the day.
If you're reaching a dedicated #audience and you're truly #passionate about a product and you use it, you can help that brand win, you can make some #money from them, and you can introduce products to your customers that you really believe in.
