New Groups

tao  •  13 Sept 2021

I decided to double down on Twitter today.

I muted the 2 engagement groups I am a member of and paid to join a new one.

Why did I do this?

Because the group I have joined is run by the creator of the course I promote.

The main benefit is that I get access to him as a mentor, working with me to tweak and edit my tweets before I post them to make them work well.

I can post a maximum of 1 per day and he will suggest ways that it can be improved. Plus, you get to see everyone else’s draft tweets too, so it’s almost like a library of content ideas you can steal.

There are sections where you are allowed to add links that work the same as an engagement group but they are very limited. You can only post 1 tweet per day, rather than up to 5. This should cut the noise down, hopefully.

Some of the others in the group are some of the bigger “names” I have seen out there making money, so it is good to be surrounded by people I know can make it work.

It will cost me $17.99 a month and I am hoping that I will learn enough to actually make sales and that I will be able to recoup the cost. It’s a bit like when you are deep in debt from gambling and you keep losing more money, hoping to win it all back.

I know I have felt lots of negativity from this whole process over the last week. Partly this is due to it coming to the end of the “shiny new object” period. At this point, I would usually give up and chalk my time and money up as a loss, giving up and never starting it again. I know I do this, so it’s time to push past that feeling if I can.

I also know I am feeling quite down generally at the moment and this is having an effect on everything I am doing, not just Twitter. It is one benefit of being just on the good side of depression that I can identify it now. Beforehand, I would just disappear further into the hole and not know why I was feeling the way I did.

It is causing me to doubt investing in this new group, or to second-guess what I am doing. I am glad I joined the group, but also have a sense of dread and overwhelming apathy too. I hope I can struggle through it this time.

Nice, I didn’t know it came with mentorship. Sounds like a good investment of the cost of a few lattes, if it can help you earn 10x more! Interesting business model too. 🤔

I think the mentorship part is the main difference between this group and the rest I have been in. The mentor also published daily “lessons” for us to read and is very active answering questions and helping the other members of the group. Hopefully I can push through these feelings I am having about it all. It will just be nice to make some money just to prove it can work.

And yes, it is an interesting business model. Set up a Discord server and get people to pay a monthly sub to get access. Does make me wonder if it could be a good way to make some money.

I wonder if that’s the real biz model to try to emulate haha. Do as they do, not as they say, they say…
