Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

What Do People Like You Do?

This month (yes, it's already August), spend time determining what it is the tribe you lead does and for whom. 

If you're headed back to school, make a decision about who your club, fraternity, major, or department wants to reach and why. 

If you're in the thick of a product launch, pinpoint your target market and start deciding how you'll find them and how you'll talk to them about what you're making. 

If you're beginning a new company, be certain about who you want to work with and why they'd be a good addition to the team.

If you're organizing moms in your neighborhood, kids for a soccer team, volunteers for a 5k, or clients for a sales pitch, be sure you're talking directly to them.  

No one likes to be given generic statements. We really want to hear about us. So tell us - why should we be a part of what you're doing?
