The two-legged business
I know a great business coach who has a model for success in any business. She says you only need three things:
1. a product to sell
2. a place to sell with a method of taking payment
3. a way of getting people who want to buy your product to see it.
Lately, I’ve been looking at all the projects I’ve been doing through that lens, and not giving up before I have all three things in place. I’ve been thinking about the three things as legs on a stool. One or two legs makes for a pretty useless stool. 🤣
For example, I have an Etsy store I opened in December With that I’ve covered having a place to sell and handle the payments and I have 12 products in there. So that’s leg 1 and 2 on the stool, but I haven’t done anything about sending a lot of traffic to my store and have left it pretty much to Etsy to send customers my way.
Not only that, I haven’t helped Etsy to send the right interested buyers either as my descriptions and keywords haven’t been optimized.
It’s something I’m planning to do, but it’s not done yet. But I know where I need to focus my efforts or that business model will never work for me.
How about you? Do you have a part of your business that’s like that? A shop with not enough products, a product, but nowhere to sell it – or just not enough buyers getting to see your stuff?
That’s where there’s work to be done. Not clearing your email. Or updating your home page again. Or scrolling through Facebook.
Sometimes, I don’t mind piecing all the parts of a business model together and creating a strategy. Other times, I just want a whole business model that I can follow and build.
That’s why I’m so glad I found Yadsia’s course on selling Canva templates. And to make it even more fun to build up a revenue stream this way, I started a small accountability group for it as a bonus (see below for details).
Start a Business Selling Canva Templates
Business owners are always on the lookout for templates for their sites, social media, and products. Before I knew how to make them, I spent over three hundred dollars buying Canva templates, and I still buy some of them today when a design catches my eye.
Canva is an online graphic design program with a ton of built-in templates, making it much easier for non-designers to create something that looks good.
You can take a template and swap out the colors and image in an instant to create the right look for your brand. The template makes sure the design of the final image looks good.
But the standard Canva designs show up a lot online even with all the changes you can make, so business owners are always looking for something fresh that will stand out above the herd.
When I created templates for a project last year, it wasn’t easy to work out exactly how to create them. I looked around for help online and came up with nothing.
But now, Yadsia has published a full course, not just on creating the templates, but also on turning your output into a brand new revenue stream by selling your templates online. She gives you everything you need to start your template selling business, including some starter templates for commercial use.
And best of all, you can get her whole course and set of templates for a very low launch price (increasing to a final price of $67 in a few days.) How many businesses can you start for so little, even at the final price? Not many!
I love Yadsia’s way of teaching so much that I grabbed her whole suite of courses instead of just one. Digital Business Startup includes the Canva course and another eight courses at an introductory launch price. Buy before 12th March as the beta price will double then if you want more than a few of her courses and all the templates that go with them. Then you can explore a whole gamut of digital and printable low content revenue streams without buying all the courses individually.
Yadsia is one of those trainers who walks the talk and does what she teaches so you know it’s not just theory. I love learning from people like her.
MY BONUS – You know how it is when you buy a course? At first, you’re super motivated but then life gets in the way? Then you get stuck somewhere and forget all about the course as you go onto the next shiny object.
I want to stop that happening to you with Yadsia’s training. It’s too valuable for that.
As I’m doing all these courses myself, let’s make each other accountable for implementing them and setting up our new business streams. And if any of us get stuck, I’ll make sure we get the answers so we all keep going.
We’ll meet as a small group on Zoom initially to decide how we want to work together. This will be free for those who buy either the Canva Templates or the Digital Business Start Up through my link as we’ll start with the Canva course and once that’s done the Start Up students can continue on with the next course in the accountability group.
To take part, just buy one of these two courses through my links above, forward your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll contact you to set something up on Zoom. This will be fun!
