I came across this question through ConvertKit’s Product Creation Mater Class. Last week we started the ideation and process of creating a digital product – and this was among a few questions that were asked – this stood out to me greatly.
What’s Your Super Power?
Aside from asking about my superpower (what I am good at, I also followed up with what are my weaknesses? Feeling stuck and not knowing what else to write other than design, I reached out to friends and family via snapchat and What’s App to get some responses. They were quite insightful and also let me know who to go to to ask about myself – unfiltered.
Now before I share these responses I KNOW where my weaknesses lie. My friends always point it out. And I’m a work in progress like everyone else out here!
Let’s just say that after reading their responses it made me realize what I am good at and where I need to improve. t opened my eye’s to let me know that there is no need for me to be shy about my skills, and that I am able to do far more than I give myself credit for.
Asking this question gave me insight of what I believe verse what people believe about me. It gave me insight to the recurring trend of where I need to improve and what people know I can do.
Since I’ve been blogging and writing everyday and have been curious about raising funds in a new way for a missions trip I figure I could pair the two. Looking back, (just a week), it sounds like I came to the conclusion fairly easy but I promise there was a bit of brain storming with my coworkers, and even in the ConvertKit Slack community.
The process was a bit like this:
After identifying your niche and ideal client, you decide on what your digital product will be. As a designer I know for a fact that there are bloggers, YouTuber’s and the like in the online digital space teaching design. As a matter of fact Nathan Barry has several ebooks and courses out on design and marketing.
When I shared my idea in the slack community it was more of three parts: design, raising funds for a mission trip. I introduced myself in the community :
Good Morning all! My name is Keshna – I’m still new to slack but willing to learn! Currently I am blogging daily at www.keshnadonia.com I’ll be attending a missions trip in July and believe this may be a way to create a product to help support what I am doing. I need to raise a minimum of $2,000 by July. My personal blog doesn’t have a specific niche and shares mostly daily experiences and life updates. It was my hope to document my journey to IDEO. Currently I am on day one of the #PMC and I am going through the questions posted.
My initial instinct was to walk away and think of another product – but then I got a bit of encouragement to continue.
I also got feed back of other things to consider:
If you took time out of your busy day to respond last week – thank you! It’s much appreciated. And lastly I’m curious, what about you – What are your Super Powers? What are your weaknesses? How can you use that to develop a digital product? You might want to signup for ConvertKit’s product creation master class. Hurry and sign up because I just learned that week one is closed!
The next step is planning the product. In the mean time I’m looking to move my blog to a self hosted plan so that I can embed my sign-up page.
