Nifty Business Week 60

Technology Changes, Business is Timeless

Old Things Become New

The Short Version:

  1. I will launch a community with 100 members.

  2. Audiences are transactional; communities are relational.

  3. Established brands are embracing web3 technology, while web3 companies are adopting traditional business models.

✍️ From Me to You

Who checks their email on a Sunday evening?

Conventional wisdom says newsletters should be sent on Tuesdays before lunch.

I have gotten the best results on the weekend. However, I have NEVER released an evening edition, even when I ran a website from my dorm in 2006.

Most of us in web3 experiment and test new things. We then evaluate our results, repeat our successes, and adjust as needed.

It is like an entrepreneurial journey. Whether it is Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, or you exploring web3 for your next idea, the process is the same.

I knew I wanted to meet other “digital explorers” and allies to build the future when I launched Nifty Business almost two years ago.

Conventional wisdom at the time led to the launch of many PFP projects.

That line of thinking created thousands of crypto millionaires and countless disbanded communities.

Conventional wisdom says this is the worst time to launch a web3 community, yet I want to gather 100 people on a mission.

Rather than following conventional web3 wisdom, I believe successful people in other industries have demonstrated the best business models.

I will share what I have been working on later this week via the podcast.

Today, I have highlighted some of the blurred lines between traditional business models and web3.

Hopefully, you find them as interesting as I do…

🎙️ Podcast Episodes:
