Does This Book Idea Float?

You’ve got your big idea. But is it any good? That’s where Pamela’s at, and now we’re asking you to weigh in.

To discover whether your idea is any good, you’ve got to put it out there and get feedback.

Most people think, “I’ve got an idea, and now I need to hide it so no one can steal it.”

But that’s not how it works.

The best ideas become stronger, clearer, and richer when you share them, listen to the questions they generate, and adapt them so they work better.

Scroll to the bottom of this page. In the comments section, tell us what you think about what you’ve heard about The Slacker’s Guide to Content Marketing so far. Does the idea resonate with you? Does it raise any questions?

In this 23-minute episode, Jeff and Pamela discuss:

  • Why going into a cave to write your book (without sharing the concept behind your book first) is a really bad idea
  • How having a platform like a blog gives you a way to get feedback on your ideas
  • A behind-the-scenes peek into why bringing back comments on Copyblogger was important to Pamela (and what Jeff thinks about it)
  • Why you shouldn’t worry about people stealing your idea
