Allyson was pitchingÂ Todayâ€™s StepÂ to someone last week, and they mentioned how we have only been in the world for a few months and to give it time!
A few months! It was a reality check that slapped us both in the face. Todayâ€™s Step is made from a lifetime of practicing skills, experience and lessons. And while itâ€™s true we only launched in March – it feels longer!
Hereâ€™s an update how it’s going with the app.
We’ve had a few thousand downloads now, some good reviews, and recently we launched a daily email newsletter for folks without a smart phone.
Promo breakâ€¦The newsletter means anyone with email is now able to have access to the full app. Sign up and everyday youâ€™ll receive a daily dose of wisdom and encouragement as well as the qigong videos, guanqifa meditation and the personal stories from people in the recovery community.
and we’re back…
Allyson and I are calling, setting up meetings, and going into treatment centres to promote the app as a must-have aftercare resource. Weâ€™re asking counsellors and other professionals in the recovery field to promote it to their clients, we are on Facebook and Twitter and LinkedIn. I have business cards and flyers and if I see you with a smart phone, Iâ€™ll probably make you (I mean ask you to) buy it.
It’s slow going. Today’s Step while it really is an amazing deal at only $3.99 â€” it is not the field of dreams, where all we had to do was build it and let them come. It isnâ€™t Angry Birds, there is no video of anyone getting kicked the crotch, no photos with baskets of puppies or kittens (this might change) â€”Â in other words, it has not gone viral.
But, then again, itâ€™s only been a few months!
