WHAT CAN I DO BETTER?!
I spent good amount of time this week contemplating how I could improve Project Deeds and how I could get more people to become devoted Deed Doers. To be honest, I am not satisfied with the current results of the site and know that we could reach more people. I think a lot of people, including family and friends, are struggling to put the Deed Of The Week into action. Having said that, I want to know WHAT CAN I DO BETTER?
This past week we had over 380 visitors to the site and a retweet from Tony Dungy. This may seem like a great accomplishment but it was quite the contrary. I consider this past week a step back because Project Deeds did not receive information from one Deed Doer or Deed Recipient. I think it is easy to read the post and say, “That’s a great idea” and carry on with our day failing to take action. I think a great majority of potential Deed Doers have great intentions about executing the deed they just fail to follow through. I want to know what you think I should do to increase the intentional acts of Project Deeds?
Should I offer incentives?
Should I send direct emails to people that want to be people of action and involved with Project Deeds?
Should I post the actual videos of me executing the Deed Of The Week?
Should I quit posting videos?
Should I shape the message of the blog in a different way?
I need your input! WHAT CAN I DO BETTER?
I want your input because we are all in this together. I want to shape this site in a way that we can maximize the happiness and fulfillment that we inflict into the world. I spend a great amount of time putting together the Deed Of The Week because I want it to serve others. I want Project Deeds to be the smile on the face of a woman that was having a horrible day but just received a deed. I want Project Deeds to be the rekindling of a friendship by way of an intentional act of kindness. I want Project Deeds to be the kind act that did not go undone before the passing of a loved one. I want Project Deeds to make a real difference in our culture and I want to know WHAT CAN I DO BETTER? Deeds of kindness do not always get a second chance.
Please comment below and offer any advice that you think may benefit Project Deeds. I would greatly appreciate it. I need your input.
