What Max Ivey suggests to get your first 100 customers

The first thing I would is if you’re going to have a website, own your name. Obtain your domain and push your brand. Know who you are, and what your story and brand is. If you don’t know what your brand is, you can find someone on the internet who can help you find it. To get attention, building an email list is a great way to do that, but you’ll have to figure out how to provide value to those on that list.

Three Pieces of Advice from Max Ivey

The first piece of advice is really important; if you don’t ask people for help when you need it, you are robbing the other person of the joy of helping you. Most persons are good at asking for help, but they’re bad at taking help from people who offer without asking. Learn to take assistance when you need it, whether you ask for it or not. Secondly, stop trying to win ‘style points’. Stick to achieving your actual goals instead of trying to be overly flashy doing it. And lastly, my final piece of advice would be stop worrying about the terms ‘crazy’ and ‘weird’ when it comes to comparing yourself to someone else; take it from me.
