Day 4 of marketing mode and I don't have any paying customers yet!

Day 4 of marketing mode and I don't have any paying customers yet!

But I did a lot of clarity since I started 4 days ago.

I now know I need to hyper focus on freelance writers and talk to them.

I've been sending a decent amount of DMs on Reddit. I hope I don't get banned.

That's been my primary source of leads. I've gotten a few replies but have only really talked to 1 user from Reddit. I need to talk to more.

From the big picture perspective, I'm making slow and steady progress. But from a micro perspective, it's frustrating.

On day 1 of marketing mode I was ready to quit. Now it's day 4 and I barely made any progress but I had to slog through these past few days to get to this point.

And from the big picture perspective, this is only log # 17. I should recalibrate and judge my progress at log # 50 or 100 to be honest!
