This may be premature, but I don’t care! Amazon’s warehouse has received the first batch of nice offset-printed Emergent Task Planner Pads! I just ordered a pad to see how they are packaging them, along with other necessities in the form of fountain pen ink and NPH. The store page is filled out with the barest of information and terrible images, but it’s a start!
The pads went to press a couple weeks ago after I settled on a new color scheme of blue and orange, which you can see here in the press check photo I took:
I tried to strike a balance between a businesslike-yet-exciting blue and a call-to-action orange. Hopefully, people like them. They are the same price as before, $12.50 for a shrink wrapped, top-glued pad of 75 sheets.
I’m still figuring out how to configure the Amazon stuff properly, but if you’re running out of pre-printed pad sheets you can now buy the Emergent Task Pads on Amazon.com.
And now the interesting work now begins: how the heck do you market your own product. I will write more later about the experience of setting up Fulfillment By Amazon and working with the printer to create the beginnings of a turn-key system. I’m starting with about $2000, left from the first run of pads, to bootstrap a business. This is surprisingly nerve-wracking.
