here's a quick introduction to the topic of building in public
- sharing stories (wins/lessons)
- being authentic and vulnerable
- rallying a community around your cause
- a gimmick to go viral
- a shortcut to fame
- a ploy to get users
Build in public takes time, intention, and consistency. Play the long game.
Build in public allows transparency and storytelling. People love stories, especially when they are unfolding literally in front of their own eyes.
When done well, build in public combines your momentum with an enthusiastic community that generates an organic word of mouth. A positive word of mouth is the gold standard for marketing.
