Defining "Extrapreneurship"
Working with companies on a project basis, creating a product or strategy based on entrepreneurial methods.
In other words, I offer entrepreneurship as a freelance service. Often in the form of branded side projects.
Then what's a side project?
Building small tools and resources that attract customers and don’t feel like marketing.
You can call it branded side projects, engineered marketing, content marketing products. No matter what, it's about putting content over promotion

When you give, you eventually get more in return. Designing side projects to match your brand and your customer's needs is a powerful and risk-free way of growing your business.

getting it right | I’m going to explain the concept of side projects in long-form text, because it’s not a “how to grow your business to a million followers in a week” cheap trick. Side project marketing is a serious and important tool that could mean the world to your brand.

short development, big impact | The best kind of marketing is when the customer doesn't perceive it as marketing. Content marketing is great in this sense, as it focus less on you and more on them. Their needs first. You can create e-books, blog posts, video tutorials and many have done so for years. A great, and largely untapped type of content marketing is small standalone projects that your customers can use for years to come—If it didn’t strike a chord with them you’ve only spent the same amount of time and money as on a one-off campaign. If it works, you’ll generate traffic, sales and engagement for years to come with no further expenses.

stand out in the crowd | There’s over a billion blogs — that’s one blog for every seven people. It’s highly competitive. Tools and resource on the other hand is a newsworthy thing that can stand out.

Why use a standalone domain?.

  1. 1By giving your side project a standalone domain you induce a sense ofprofessionalism. The resource is an entity on its own, which communicates that it’s worth the effort of making something “special”
  2. 2You create a sharp standalone concept that is easily digestable and does not branchout into twenty other topics and subpages
  3. 3You decouple the site from the brand. People simply listen more if they are not on a company’s website reading the company talk about itself. It comes off as more self-sacrificing in order to help the community
  4. 4You make it easier to market. A “For designers” subpage or a new blogpost is regular. A tool is news —Something you can publish on ProductHunt and similarservices and get attention for giving the community a resource
  5. 5Your brand is listed explicitly as the creator of the tool, which emphasises that you give something. This is not as clear on a simple subpage on your original domain
