1 Thessalonians 3:9-11
Ezekiel 22:30

As Kingdom Writers, we can be people God uses to help fill in the gaps (as Paul says) and also stand in the gap (Ezekiel) in order to help repair a wall of righteousness and plead on behalf of others. 

Our books and other writings are ways God brings us to others in order to encourage and edify their faith. Just as Paul’s letters were carried to believers all over the region, our books can be carried around the world in order to help fill in the gaps that people have in their faith and answer questions others may be wrestling with.

This is how I typically do prioritize my marketing tasks, but it will be different for each of you. 

My first priority:

  1. Will it produce income? (Long term or short term? What is the profit margin?)
  2. Will it build my email list? (Manual or automated?)

My next thought process:

  1. What is the least minimum viable product? Done well, yes. But sometimes we don’t need to do everything right now (ie blog)

Also:

  1. What’s required? Will I need to learn a new skill or technology? If I can choose something profitable with what I already have/know, I often choose it.
  2. What has worked well for me in the past? 80/20 rule.

Finally:

  1. I take action and figure it out as I go. Very rarely do I have everything figured out before I take action.
