Newsletter 17th March 2022: How to make green (with envy) a thing of the past! & more free training

by | Newsletters


I guess all things will be green today celebrating St Patrick’s Day in the US and Ireland.

The most I saw over here was a discount on green fabric from my favorite online fabric shop. 🤣

St. Patrick's Day greetings!

I’m always slightly envious of all these fun traditions we don’t have or don’t do as well as people do them stateside.

Looking at you Thanksgiving, 4th July, and St Patrick’s Day for example.

I’ve never even been to the states at the right time to experience them. (Typical us, our break in Chicago in the year before the plague departed the day before they turned the river green LOL)

But I don’t generally waste too much time on envy as that’s such a negative emotion.

And in business, I try to keep my eyes on my own progress.

There will always be someone doing better and worse than you no matter how well you do. So you could drive yourself crazy tying to outsmart everyone.

Someone else’s stellar results are simply a great example of what you could also do if you stay on track.

Focusing on your own results for last week, last month, or last year and trying to beat them will really help you move forward.

And with practise and experience, you’ll get better and faster at what you’re doing (as long as you don’t keep switching plans) so you’re bound to jump ahead in leaps and bounds.

Leaving the rest of us, trying to keep our eyes off your results and on our own.  🤣

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 on Tuesday 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.

(Yesterday when I sent my email out, the offer had 7 hours to run. Today when I checked the new cost of the product, it is still the same price and has another countdown going!  This kind of thing is annoying but common in some circles. So it’s still a great deal but we really don’t know when the price will increase. I’d say, don’t wait if you want it, that’s all!)

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.

See the video of all the pages and get the details here.

Stack of PLR

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

I bought this 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 so it’s still under $30.)

The bundle and the huge opportunity that comes with having so much content for such a low price disappears tonight.

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.
