Newsletter 13th February 2022: Squeezing oranges (or something like that) <-- crazy talk? 不

by | Newsletters


I’m starting to see my job around here at Simple Happiness Biz HQ (HQ being my room above the kitchen 不) as chief orange squeezer.

Now you’re probably thinking I’ve truly lost my marbles with that.

But let me explain.

Whatever we buy, whether that is a service or software, training, PLR product, or graphic asset, that thing has no value whatsoever.

However much we paid for it.

It’s like an orange sitting in the fruit bowl.

It might look pretty. You might look forward to consumingit, but it really isn’t doing you much good just sitting there.

You have to take that thing and extract maximum goodness out of it, peeling back the skin, getting to the juicy parts and leaving the stuff you don’t need from it behind.

I have to admit (just between you and me) that I havequite a lot of oranges sitting in my fruit bowl just now.

In fact last week, I bought a “too good to be true” thing that has 3000 oranges in it.

A truckload of oranges, never mind a fruit bowl.

What was I thinking? I was thinking, this is too good to be true but for $12.95.

Then I thought, no. I’m not going to do this.

Then they gave me a $5 coupon as I tried to escape the site.

That gets me every time. 不

So I bought it anyway, because $7.95 for 3000 PLR ebooks. It even includes training on how to change them

I took a look at the content in one of those books I picked at random. It was better than I expected given these books are four for a cent if my math is any good Who knows what the other 2999 are like. I haven’t even downloaded them yet.菊

But I was thinking they might do for content for mini niche sites I have in mind to promote my business.

Could I extract $7.95 worth of goodness out of all those books? I’m sure I could. Probably a hundred times that. Maybe a thousand.

But really.

Nobody needs that much orange juice to deal with. And I’m already busy with other fruit. 不

If you’re curious, what made me buy the thing,the page is here.

But buyer beware before you get caught up in it too. How many oranges do you want in your fruit bowl?


There are lots of offers around at the moment but this is one of the best, for sure.Luke has a sale on hisKDP Mega Packthis weekend. (I’m not sure when this ends exactly. Luke’sad just says Valentine’s Day weekend so don’t hang about if you want it!) This is a huge number of templates (95) and Powerpoint tools for around $19. So much value. 潃

Take a look here at all you getand then snap this up if KDP is in your sights.


Note as Luke’sGumroad account is in pounds, there will be some variation due to currency exchange/taxes but don’t let that put you off. It’s all good. (But if your competitors are put off, more fool them, andso much the better for us不)

without social media marketing course

Leonie Dawson is one of the most colorful characters in the KDP low content space (and one of the most successful.)

But she doesn’t use social media.

She shares her reasons in a unique way on hersales pageand she shares her strategies in her course:Marketing without Social Media.

But she also includes a strategy for creating maximum impact with minimum social media effort if you don’t want to give up on it entirely.

If you’ve never seen Leonie’s sales pages,take a lookeven if you love social media

I find the whole social media thing a time suck so I jumped on this the last time she released it, butI missed doing the course live so I’m glad to see current students will have an opportunity to do that.

I hear her language is as colorful as her personality.

That will mean keeping my headphones onin case Alfie pup is listening. He’s at a very impressionable age in doggy years 不

Anyway, you can save $20 over the next day or two.

FB ads areonlya bad idea if you don’t use them in the right way.

But if you know how to make them work, they can be the best (and most cost effective) boost to your business.

And you can test with very little money until you find your feet with them.

There’s little else that can turn on a flood of traffic overnight.

Send instant traffic to test your offers.

Let low budget ads show you what’s not working and what is, before you spend precious time promoting your offers in other ways.

Once you have something that sells, amplify all your efforts with ads for maximum ROI.
