Newsletter 16th March 2022: How to grow your list 💖 and new freebie training

by | Newsletters


So good to escape for a little while on a two-day trip away. I saw a comedy show and laughed for two hours straight, had dinner and breakfast out and visited an art gallery.

Just like before we were locked up.

But now we have a war in Europe. It just feels like we all live on very shaky ground.

First, it’s the plague. Then, it’s invasion. You really have to enjoy your life while you can! Who knows what any of us has to face in the future?

On a lighter note, outside the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow (a beautiful old building), there’s a statue of the first Duke of Wellington on his horse.  It was erected in 1844.

As long as I’ve been taking trips to the city, the horse has had a traffic cone on his head. I think it started as a drunken student prank. But no sooner do the authorities remove it than the cone reappears. I think they’ve given up trying to remove it now. Google says its “a symbol of Glaswegians’ unique sense of humour and love of a night on the tiles.”

Anyway, I saw a new cone in place today – in the blue and yellow of Ukraine.

Showing love and solidarity in the Glaswegian way  💖

It can be tough to get people to sign up for your newsletter from your blog.

But content upgrades are a great way to do it. At the end of each blog post you offer a free lead magnet, a pdf of your content in ebook format that they can save and print out.

Converting your content into an interesting ebook that people want to read can take time if you do it manually, but you can use a tool called Designrr to do it automatically.

This software will take any webpage and convert it into a stunning ebook, stripping out the webpage navigation, advertising, social sharing and all the stuff that you don’t need in an ebook and pulling in just the raw content complete with images.

Then you choose a template and publish!

(For those of us with a ton of PLR text in Word or text format on our hard drives, you could use that too!)

And it’s available just now for a one-off lifetime license price of just $27. I snapped up my copy yesterday as I can see myself getting so much use out of this.

Check out the demo in the video here. I can’t wait to try it out once I get caught up from my trip.

Designrr has been around for ages so I’m a bit late to the party (but better late than never in this case) and $27 for lifetime is a steal The offer has about 7 hours to run as I send this out. 

My bonus: Get the $27 Designrr lifetime deal through my link and choose any one of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter. (More coming soon if you have them all!) 💖💖💖


Graphic of a Genealogy Tracker

Hubby is into tracing his family tree and has records of his family going back to the 1700s so it was handy to have his input and approval for our Vintage Genealogy Tracker.

He took precious little notice of my Spring Cleaning checklists! Funny that.

Anyway, genealogy is such a popular hobby these days that this printable tracker will make a great addition to your store.

Use the completed design provided in US Letter or A4 sizes, swap covers and backgrounds, or add your own designs, made easy with the plain template versions you’ll also receive.

Both Canva and Powerpoint versions and PLR Commercial use rights included.

You could also turn this into a digital planner if you wish to make this totally unique.

Just $19.95 during launch (regularly $37) and no tempting upsells to buy.

Use coupon code FAMILYTREE to get the discount.

Stack of PLR

PLR Stack is a bundle of over 35 products with PLR rights and courses.

I bought this yesterday because it really was too good to pass up!

There are a couple of items in it that swung the deal so I’ll be happy if that’s all I use from it.

Your mileage may vary, but if you think you can make use of this, then it’s a brilliant way to get a lot of content and products for less than a dollar per product.

The product is now on a dime sale so the price is going up with every sale (but just by a few pennies.)

I didn’t know they were going to do that or I’d have told you about this sooner.

The bundle disappears altogether on the 17th.

See everything included here

If you get the bundle but you’re puzzled about what you can do with it all, there’s a whole step by step business model contained in the upsells.

The first upsell, gives you the means to create great graphics for your product sales pages, the second is a comprehensive course on turning your PLR into profit. If you have a  stash of the stuff, seriously consider it.

My bonus: Choose any one of my free reports for the main PLR STACK offer if you buy through my link. If you choose the first upsell, you can also get a $20 coupon for my site, and if you get the second you can get a $50 coupon. You can choose whether to have the coupons as a single $70 or to have two separate ones if you buy both. See the end of the newsletter for details on how to claim.


As I had a lot of requests for various different bonuses, it’s now official that you can choose any one of the recent bonuses when you buy through any of my links marked with a 💖💖💖 in my newsletter on top of any other bonuses mentioned.

This works better for those who already own one or more of these or who want to buy a couple of items.

To claim just send your receipt(s) to me (jan@simplehappiness.biz) and let me know which bonus(es) you would like. I’ll verify with the vendor and send them right back to you, usually within a day or so.
