Lessons Learned Running a Small Business in 2011

Small Business Working

As 2012 begins, I want to look back over the past year to see what can be learnt from it. Learning from your mistakes is less glamorous than a list of grand New Year’s Resolutions (Though I do like those too), but often more effective at ensuring the next year is even better than the last.

With that in mind, what follows are some of the lessons I have picked out from my own 2011. I would love to hear if these resonate with you.

intro

Anyone following me on Twitter will already know this by now, but our big project, PliablePress, went live around 24 hours ago!

And it’s been great! It’s been crazy and I’ve been chasing things around everywhere and I meant to have this post published, well, 24 hours ago, but all of that aside, it’s been great.

We’ve had loads of great reactions to the designs, and even our first happy customers!

In this post I want to show you what we’ve done so far, share some videos of the framework in action, and offer you a discount if you want to become a customer!

Hiring Writers For Up To $125

24

hiring1

This is just a quick post to let you know that we’re once again looking for writers, and this time, at a substantially higher rate.

The new rate is based on the feedback you all left a few weeks back. Big thanks to everyone who took part!

From now on, post authors will be paid somewhere between $70 and $125 for their work, based on the quality of the post. We’ll be drifting away from the list posts that some of you are getting a little tired of, and start focusing on more in-depth tutorials and discussions (And when you do see list posts in future, you’ll find a lot more value in them. You’ll see what I mean come Thursday!).
