Hey PH, Building SelfMade with my co-founder Zach Lloyd and the entire SelfMade team over the past year and a half has been the most exhilarating and rewarding experience of my life. Our goal is to support a new wave of entrepreneurs to achieve their goals. We want to help people to be the creative directors of their lives, not the social media managers. We're so excited to be launching on PH. Check it out here, www.selfmade.co and let me know what you think. Check it out here, www.selfmade.co and let me know what you think.

@selfmade @bschechter amazing work Brian and team
Capitalizing on what the market wants and needs... amazing work, Brian and team.
Very interesting, although I'm not sure how I feel about this. Public social media is already highly curated. Does this lead to less authenticity? Thoughts, @bschechter?
@rrhoover Valid question. Thank you! SelfMade supports authentic expression. Our members have more unique and true-to-self brands on social because of SelfMade. We're democratizing the experience of being a creative director and having a social media team. Try it out. Our members are looking for ways to express themselves and create new opportunities. Their social presence serves as their resume or storefront and they want it to be on point.

@bschechter @rrhoover It's digital marketing for individuals. The level of authenticity is up to each person using the service, and what they're trying to portray. In a sense, it's what people already do: build an online persona/brand they're happy with (like the ones who decide to consistently use social media, and place a value on it like the potential customers of this app would) and then try themselves to amplify it. Who knows how genuinely "authentic" they are other than the user, though? But, as you know well, building audiences is time-consuming and difficult for most people. This app/business is a personal marketing firm, and will help them do basically what I do for companies, which is to grow audiences, increase social media numbers where desired, amplify messages, increase reach, penetrate deeper, hit KPIs, optimize, etc... in a more sophisticated and focused manner to grow their "brand." Difference is, my aim is to dramatically increase revenue and decrease costs. I don't know what their end goal is.
@bschechter @rrhoover If you're a freelancer of some sort, promoting a business, or otherwise selling something, I can see the utility (these services do, however, already exist for such people and business entities). Social media are already so thoroughly infested with insufferable, self-promoting narcissists -- be they social media "mavens" of some sort, or life coaches/gurus, or what have you -- that I'm fairly sure I don't have positive feelings about this.
@rrhoover @cacarr Our members fall into the bucket of freelancers of some sort....What other services you're thinking of? The ones I've seen are prohibitively expensive for most freelancers. SelfMade offers affordable, pro-quality support in building a brand.

Was a really early beta customer... really high touch get-to-know me platform... They've done a great job at taking my random photos that I added and building them into a coherent and great looking internet / instagram presence for me. <3

Pros:

Easy and magical self-branding for my instagram

Cons:

Nothing really

Really easy to use and it's great for someone like me who's trying to grow on social

Pros:

Great product and great team behind it!

Cons:

Launch in other countries
