Newsletter 17th December 2021: First time hurdles ūüéĀ and new freebie from me

by | Newsletters


The first time you do something, it’s really difficult.

You don’t know what to do.

You look it up on Google.

The instructions are gobbledegook.

You take a course (sometimes at vast expense).

It might cover what you need to know , but it will still probably take several tries to get that thing you wanted to do right.

Especially if you put your own spin on it ūüėä

Your first attempt may be far from perfect.

But that’s okay! You did it!

Now you can move on and do better next time, building something more attractive to buyers, and the process will be faster.

That’s progress!

And so much better than not doing the thing, thinking it’s too hard and waiting for the “right” course to come along with fool proof step-by-step instructions for making a fortune.

Newsflash: there is no such thing in business, otherwise we would all be following that course and the competition would be outrageously high!

NEW: Challenge Your Comfort Zone

Doing things you’re not already skilled at will take you right out of your comfort zone.

But that’s fine! That’s the way we grow in business and life.

Lynette has a¬†new workbook¬†that will help as it’s¬†designed to¬†gently challenge our comfort zones and set us growing on the right path.

And the great thing about this workbook is that you can both use it for yourself AND sell it.

I call that a win!

challenge your comfort zone

Live your best life and help others live theirs too.

It’s 50% off using code¬†COMFORTZONES¬†until the 21st!

Show Off Your Book or Journal & Sell It

It’s no good hiding your finished work in a corner of your website once you’re done.

Before you can sell your product, potential buyers have to notice it, otherwise you’ll get…crickets.

Go for maximum visibility everywhere with great product images and video.

That sounds like a lot of work but luckily there’s a product called¬†Mockupshots¬†that gives you an easy and very fast way of drawing attention to a book or journal on your website or on social media.

You load up your cover and in a few seconds, you have a huge number of¬†realistic mockups, GIFS and videos¬†that draw the eye and stop the scroll like nothing on earth.ūüėä

Mockup shot

Not only will MockupShots allow you to create hundreds of epic photos of your books, it will give you suggestions for social media posts for each mockup and even allow you to crop, edit and add text right from inside the interface so your graphics are ready to post right away.

I’ve had this for a while and use it mainly to create 3D images of my products with transparent backgrounds but I just looked again at what it can do and I know I’ll be using it a lot more in the future.

Spidy Cover

The cover reveal videos are amazing!

Best thing is, they’ve slashed the price for the holidays.

Take a look at the magic here.  So many cool images, GIFs and videos to make from one cover in an instant to show off your work. Use it on as many books as you like. 

Enjoy your weekend and I’ll be back soon with¬†more tips, freebies, and some offers but only the ones I personally think are great value and know the quality to be good.





P.S. Don’t forget to grab¬†the¬†Fresh Start Color Monthly bundle¬†before it goes away on Sunday¬†and get 33 products for less than a dollar a product. Selling one or two products will cover the cost of the whole bundle! Bu if you buy it, remember to schedule the launch date for each product you plan to sell!
