Newsletter 13th September 2022: Start with something 💖 & oodles of new things for you

by | Newsletters


Some people love a clean slate.

A brand new website to build.

The blank first page of their book.

Definitely not me.

I’d much rather improve what’s there already.

After a week largely spent setting up our Thrivecart account from scratch, I’m glad I won’t have to dive into every field and interface again.

Or get Thrivecart, Birdsend, and Paypal all talking to each other. 🤣

The next time putting a product in there will be so much easier.

Sometimes you have to deal with building something from the ground up.

Other times you can just buy some starter content,  or a ready-made planner, or a done-for-you training course.

It takes away any resistance to getting started, what authors often call “the tyranny of the blank page.”

If you’re finding it hard to get started on something, try looking for PLR (private label rights) content that you can use to avoid the blank page syndrome.

It will save you a ton of time and effort and you’ll reach the finish line much faster. 💖

etsy copy tips and templates

Karon from Marketing Words has just launched “Etsy Copy Tips & Templates: How to Write Etsy Descriptions That Sell.”

This training is perfect if you struggle to write Etsy descriptions from scratch.

It includes videos that step you through the questions to ask before you write, using your words to paint a mental image, overcoming objections, formatting your text for eye appeal, what you can and can’t include and much more.

You’ll also receive cheat sheets that will guide you as you tweak or write your descriptions and templates to make it super-easy to finish your descriptions quickly.

The training is just $23.50 (half price) until 18th September.  (No code needed)

jasper art

Many of us use Jasper to provide new content ideas and help with copywriting and other writing tasks but did you know you can now also create unlimited unique images for commercial use with Jasper Art?

You can tell it what you want a picture of and it will create 100% unique bespoke pictures to match your request.

Take a look and see what you think (link to Jasper Art is at the top of the page):

It’s just $20 a month on top of the usual $29 writing subscription for unlimited images.  Early access price.

You can also get a free trial of standard Jasper on that page with 10,000 generated words if you want some free written content.

Probably worth trying out Jasper Art and getting grandfathered in at this stage if it’s something you think you could use.

Although Jasper is not perfect, it’s pretty good for many types of images and AI is destined to improve all the time meaning it is likely to also get more expensive.

My bonus: If you subscribe to Jasper through my link (paid words or words and art), you can choose any one bonus report from the list at the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖
