What kind of special projects do we do?
At Shortcut Content, we’ve done a number of special projects that don’t really fall inside our core services of delivering weekly blogs and podcasts to our clients.
Recently, I spent a day walking around the Wizard Academy in Austin, Texas with founder Roy Williams. The campus is full of amazing artwork. And rather than having it all catalogued so that Roy could write stories about them, we hooked him up to a microphone and had him tell us about them. We recorded the story of every painting, sculpture and piece of architectural significance so that they could take the transcription of that, and turn it into a campus guidebook.
We’re working on another special project for a guy who is doing a version of Michael Gerber’s E-Myth. I’m not going to tell you who it is, because it’s kind of hush-hush. He’s not a writer, but he knows the stories and what he would write. So we’re pulling those stories out of him in the form of interviews.
We also wrote a book for a guy who took an online company from being a little hundred-dollar-a-month company to a multi-million dollar company. He then sold it to one of his big competitors. Through our interview process, we created the manuscript for the book that tells the story of how he grew that company.
I’ve been doing a little bit of research on how we can help STEM scientists, even if they don’t have a budget. Maybe there are ways we can help find sponsorships so that they can not only create the content, but also monetize it, and establish themselves as experts in the field.
If you have a special project that you think Shortcut Content might be able to help you with, just reach out via our website. I’m happy to get on the phone and discuss the project.
