OF S’MORES AND SALES
Given the choice between these two article headlines, which would you choose:
1. Here’s a New Recipe for S’mores and Where You Can SELL It
a. If you choose this article, you might think: when will I have the time to:
i. Buy all the correct ingredients
ii. Make the recipe
iii. Deliver the recipe as long as the deliver occurs:
1. NOT during rush hour
2. When the car has enough gas/fuel
3. Before the car breaks down from the repairs I’ve been putting off
4. When the kids are at school
5. When my spouse doesn’t need my time, attention, etc.
Or would you choose this article headline instead?
2. Here’s a New Recipe for S’mores and Where You Can BUY It
a. If you choose this article, you might
i. Read the entire recipe
ii. click one button and purchase the item
iii. Get the delicious s’mores delivered by a friend who would appreciate you sending some patronage / karma / moola their way
3. BONUS QUESTIONS: Would you pay for those S’mores to be delivered by cafes and restaurants local to you? What about neighbors? What about acquaintances? What about people who live and bake things near you whom you don’t know, like when you get an Uber ride? What qualifications would you insist they have before agreeing to buy prepared food from them?
If you had to choose one of the following article headlines, which would you choose:
1. Here’s a New Beautiful Baby Dress and How You Can Make It and SELL It
a. (same cost, schedule, scope Iron Triangle limitations as above)
2. Here’s a New Beautiful Baby Dress and Where You Can Buy It
a. If you choose this article, you might
i. Read the entire How To DIY article
ii. Click one button and purchase the item
iii. Get the beatiful dress delivered by a friend who would appreciate you sending some patronage / karma / moola / money / crypto their way
BUT…If you paid a friend to make the dress for you, you might feel obligated to:
a. Accept the dress even if it’s: late, of a lower quality, takes longer than your stated deadline.
b. Sometimes it’s annoying to buy clothing on Amazon since you read the reviews and find some issues though this applies more toe woman’s dresses not little girls’ dresses
c. I prefer to buy at the store — less drama; one and done
d. I would NOT ask my neighbors, friends, etc. I’d ask an online community of people with specific hobby, talent, skill for making clothes who have positive reviews from prior purchasers of similar products. I would prefer to use an e-commerce sight that would already have provided such sellers and such vetting (Etsy, e-bay, big cartel, oberlo, aliExpress, shopify, zibbet, Bonanza, DaWanda, Handmade at Amazon, Aftcra, Storenvy, TicTail, Square, Volusion, IndieMade, ArtFire, Cargoh, Folksy, iCraft, Made It Myself, Not on the High Street, Silkfair, Supermarket, Yokaboo, Cargoh, Coriandr, The Hunt, BigCommerce, Magento, etc.

5. Adult beverages
6. Any and all food in the pic
