Although the main emphasis of this post was on creators who aim to establish a following, I believe its principles also extend to founders seeking to build a customer/user base.

Chenell Basilio (Writer of ‘Growth in Reverse’) has spent 450+ hours studying the most successful creators who have built followings of over 50,000 people (like Justin Welsh, Codie Sanchez & Lenny Rachitsky).

  2. Patience

  3. Community

  4. Start niche, then go broad

  5. Focus
