A little over a month ago, I decided to dive into the NFT space. NFTs (or Non Fungible Tokens) are a popular new trend that allow creators to monetize digital products in interesting new ways.
As an author / publisher / creator / online business owner in the education and publishing space, I think there's "something here" when it comes to NFTs.
What that "something" is I'm still waiting to see -- but in the interim, I wanted to test the waters and see for myself what all the fuss was about.
To get started, I solicited feedback from my newsletter subscribers.
I asked them what they would like to see me create as my first NFT.
Here are a few of my favorite responses:
Thanks Jen, Brian, and Michael -- appreciate the feedback. Lots of great ideas here, though I especially liked the idea of selling a 'block of time' from a conceptual standpoint (nice one Brian!)...
But, in the end, I decided to go with something simple and maybe a bit more appropriate to the work I do in the publishing space...
So I've decided to turn one of my books into an NFT.
The next question is: which book?
I didn't want to simply package a book that's already out as an NFT...that just doesn't feel like it has enough 'pizzazz.'
And I don't want to delay shipping an NFT with an entirely new book (though I've got a lot of ideas on that front...).
So I've decided to do something I've been planning to do for a few years now:
And to roll out the 2nd Edition of the book, we'll be releasing a limited edition via NFT.
I'm already in the process of updating the content of the book with new examples, new case studies, and new research...
But in the meantime, I want to hear from YOU!
