Hi everyone. I want to share a bit of my backstory for some context. This is a side project for me and I’m not attempting to make a full time career out of e-commerce. As an avid reddit user I wanted to reach out for some feedback.
For the past 10 years I’ve worked in the financial sector (still do), partly for other companies and also through self employment. My career has comprised of roles in financial markets specifically as a trader, broker and fund manager.
During this time I found myself putting pen to paper quite a bit, mainly for professional reflection (traders do lots of journaling) and as a result I’ve accumulated an abundance of useful notes that are likely worth something to many people. Recently, a close associate of mine who specializes in marketing and e-commerce suggested that I refine all of this information and categorize it, then he’d assist me in turning it all into a salable product (in eBook form in this case). I am working through this process now and there is quite a long way to go, but we have a good starting point and I agreed to launch it. I wanted to test the waters with what we’ve got so far so I don’t spend too much time on it going forward if it’s a bust.
Not all of the information is relevant to trading or investing specifically, some of it is useful as general business knowledge too. I’m not certain how popular these products will be, if at all, but I have many ideas for different directions we can take this project in the future if it generates enough traffic and interest.
We have brought on a couple of sponsors and affiliates to help sustain the site, and eventually this will help us to build something completely custom as opposed to the template layout currently being used. I have deferred all marketing and website related activity to my associate, I have very little to do with operations, I’m merely contributing the content and leveraging some of my industry relationships for the benefit of the project. Nonetheless, I would be interested to listen to any feedback you guys might have. Thanks in advance for taking the time.
