Creating a Digital Product Starts with an Outline

The purpose of lesson six was to create an outline for my eBook. Not a highly-detailed outline to begin writing from, but a conceptual – high level – outline to help me collect my thoughts and give me something I could send to my two-person chiropractor focus group for feedback.

Creating a digital product begins with an outline and today’s lesson got me there.

Day 1: Narrowing My Niche and Creating a Customer Avatar

Niche and Customer Avatar

There wasn’t anything here I hadn’t seen before.

But I decided to go through it anyway because thinking through these basics when starting a new project is never a bad idea. Plus, some of you have told me one of the biggest reasons you joined this experiment was because you feel alone and you wanted to see how someone else went through the process.
