Coaching Call with Tim Abell

Sent by Jonathan Stark on January 11th, 2020

Earlier this month, Tim Abell pinged me on Twitter about an episode of TBOA:

@tim_abell: I’ve been listening to “The Business of Authority: Is Selling Subscriptions For You?” and it got me thinking about how I would find a client base for subscription dev stuff.

@jonathanstark: Any ideas so far?

@tim_abell: Phone all my old clients

@tim_abell: Trawl LinkedIn

@tim_abell: Go to the right kind of meetup group

@tim_abell: Ask for referrals

@tim_abell: Do some SEO for some niche or other and hope for the best

@tim_abell: Decide it’s all too hard & scary and go back to JobServe

I could really feel Tim’s pain. And I know lots of other people are in the same trap.

Twitter isn’t the best place to have a long conversation, so we agreed to chat for an hour on the phone and publish the recording as an episode of Ditching Hourly.

Here’s a link to the show:

Tim mentioned at the end of the hour that he was really hopeful that our chat would help others in a similar situation.

PLMK if you find it useful and I’ll pass the word along 😃
