Behind the Scenes: How to Make Low Carb Simpler by October

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

Two weeks ago Team Diet Doctor spent three days discussing what to do next and building our team. Want to know what happened?

Here's another behind the scenes post.

What we discussed

Every month we spend three days together discussing important stuff and hanging out. What did we discuss this time?

Monday: January
January is the time when people decide to try losing weight and become healthy. Last year, our traffic in January was nearly twice that of December!

So, the main goal of Monday was to plan for January.

Here's the detailed agenda:

Next Month's Priorities

Behind the Scenes: How to Make Low Carb Simpler by October

The above are next month's priorities. The items below each priority are what we aim to get done by October 17th. We will not be able to complete everything, but we will work hard to get as much as possible done.

As you can see, we have three priorities for the next month:

1: Start creating a meal-planning tool
You deserve meal plans with shopping lists. To make this happen we need to build a meal-planning tool. This will take months. As we want to have the first version ready for January we need to get started now.

2: Increase our video production
You also deserve more video courses and different types of low-carb videos. To do that we need to hire another video editor. Our awesome Simon can't do everything by himself anymore! We hope to have a new video editor in place by mid-October.

3: Win on Google for low carb, keto and intermittent fasting
It should be simple to find the most important information about low-carb, keto and intermittent fasting. We want to create guides that are so great that they are easily found when searching on Google. Creating such guides takes time and we need to work at it every month to succeed.

Should we be doing something else? Please tell us in the comments below.
