WTF is Web 3.0 & The Metaverse? Well according to all of the experts it's the next level of community & commerce in virtual and augmented reality. I know you are probably wondering what does this mean for your business, and I'm glad you asked.
As I started down the slippery slope of launching my NFT, I started to get a better understanding of Web 3.0 and what it would mean for my business. I know I don't want my business to be left behind and I don't want your business be left behind in the world Web. 3.0 either. Although some experts are saying that Web 3.0 is about 5-10 years out, I don't believe that. Just like I was able to launch an NFT in 30 days without knowing what the heck I was doing, I will be moving my business into the Web 3.0 and the Metaverse the same way. The reason I can do this is because of all of the amazing technology that is available right now. As a business owner you need to be thinking Web 3.0 now, on the consumer side it will probably take about 5 years in my opinion before most of the mainstream consumers to catch up, but when they do you already want to be in place and ready to do business with them. You don't want to be on the same track with them just starting out and trying to catch up to the business owners who decided to take the leap into the Metaverse now.
The first step in getting your business ready for the Web 3.0 is you must make sure that you have a website. Having a page on Instagram and Facebook is not considered a website. You need to have your own website hosted somewhere on a hosting site. Make sure that business objectives are clear, because this is going to be real important as you move into the era of Web 3.0 and the Metaverse.
As I share the steps in moving your business into the Metaverse I will be sharing the tools, techniques and strategies that I am using to move my business. The first thing I will be doing is updating this website with Web 3D. The way that I'm going to do that is to use a software called www.Spline.design. Now let me just say this. If you are not technically savvy that's ok, because you can always go to Fiverr and hire someone to do anything you need done. The key is to hire them. Don't sit back and hem and haw about you not being technically savvy, just hire the person and let them know what you need. If you're not sure about what you need just follow this blog and I will be sharing what I'm doing to move into the Metaverse and you can do the same based on your business needs.
The time is now. Join me as I move my business into the Metaverse and you do the same.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
So last month I was looking for ways to level up the Good Morning Gwinnett Podcast and blog. I started to hear about the Metaverse and set out on a journey to see how I could incorporate the Metaverse into my business. The more I looked, all I could find was explanations about what it was and a lot about NFTs. So I dug a little deeper into NFTs and realized that people were selling ugly artwork and making millions. So I dug a little a deeper because now I was intrigued at what the heck NFTs were and why were people going crazy over them.
What I discovered was that NFTs (Non-Fungible- Tokens) were a way for people to sell digital art to collectors. It was a new spin on collecting stuff, but in the digital age. Now, I understood the whole thing about creating collectibles, because I am from the world of doll collecting. You see I invented the first plus-size fashion dolls and they were collectibles, so I understood why collectors were so excited.
Once I got the gist of the whole NFT thing, I started to think about launching my own NFT around one of my dolls. I created a tribute doll to Madam CJ Walker who was not only the first Black self-made female millionaire in America, but she was the first female self-made millionaire in America. So, I started the journey of launching the NFT and I'm almost there. My collection is created and my NFT will be live soon, just in time to celebrate Black History month. This wasn't a simple thing to do for someone who doesn't code and very unfamiliar with the space, but I figured it out. Now that I understand the NFT process, I'm back to looking at how I leverage my business in the Metaverse.
The more I do my research the more I understand that the opportunities for entrepreneurs to do business in the Metaverse are unlimited. I've already figured out how to take Good Morning Gwinnett into the Metaverse.
What I realize is that in order for entrepreneurs to do business in the Metaverse they are going to have to become knowledgeable in coding or they will have to create a plan and a budget to pay someone to help them. If you want your business to be a part of the quickly approaching Web 3.0 you'd better start planning now. It's not mainstream just yet, but it will be in about 18 months. So if you want to give your business a jumpstart into the future, start now learning what you need to know about doing business in the Metaverse now. Don't wait until the market is saturated and then try to come in, because your customer will have to cut through all of the noise to find you.
Now that my NFT is about to launch, I will start working on my plan to launch Good Morning Gwinnett into the Metaverse. I have a great idea of what that looks like, now I have to go do some more research on how to launch.
That being said, this podcast and blog will be going in new direction, which I'm calling Your Business 3.0. I will be talking about NFTs, Metaverse, AR/VR and growing your business in the Metaverse. So make sure to continue to follow the podcast and the blog to learn about how to navigate the future of technology and how to leverage it to grow your business. I hope that you are as excited as I am about Your Business 3.0.
Before I go deep into the Metaverse I will share my NFT journey with you in the next few posts, so that you can follow along and see the outcome.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
