Newsletter 1st February 2022: Put the cart before the horse 🐴 new month, new bonus, new product

by | Newsletters


I was reminded about this idea by my coach Naima yesterday.

She suggested that as soon as you have an idea for a product, you should write the sales page for it.

I’ve heard this idea before but in the format, as soon as you have an idea for a book, write the blurb to sell it.  😊

But Naima, in true Naima-style takes that one stage further.

As you probably know, the sales page should include the benefits for the student taking your course or the person using your product.

Until you know what benefits you’re aiming to provide, you won’t know what is important to add to your course or product.

And what is just fluff.

To decide what would be beneficial, Naima says write a review of your future product by someone who loved it.

What would they say about it?

What specifically changed as a result of them buying your product?

What else would they have liked to be in it?

Add those benefits to your sales page and ideas to your product!

Once you have the sales page created with all the benefits, it will fire you up to create the product like nothing else (and you won’t have writing the sales page as a task hanging over you at the end 😊)


If you miss a newsletter, there’s now a page on my site where you can find previous editions.

There are only ten there right now, but they will all get added eventually 😊

I’m not sure I want to go back and read 250 newsletters. I have enough unread emails in my inbox. But just in case you do, they will be there … 💖

I started this project following a tip from Melody Wigdahl (See Kitchen Sink Plus below)  who mentioned adding your newsletters to your blog to attract search engine traffic. (It gives them lots of rich content to index and the articles, though generally not the offers, are evergreen!)

So  there you go.

Tip turned into action!

I like it when a project comes together. I think it must be the ex project manager in me. 🤣


Today’s EXTRA BONUS for any purchase through my links marked with  💖💖💖  in this newsletter is a detailed report on the way I simplify my business and life to get more done without getting frazzled all the time.

Simplify 15 things I do

Buy anything marked 💖💖💖 through any of my links in this newsletter today then send me your receipt (to jan@simplehappiness.biz) and you’ll receive this useful report to use again and again. On top of any other bonuses you see in the newsletter.


Easy Profits with simple pattern

I love creating patterns with the tool recommended in Bart and Britt’s new course.

I’ve sold a fair few patterns myself in the past year and used them over and over to make products to sell. So I know this works and how simple it is to make beautiful original and unique patterns.

I’m almost sorry the secret is out! 🤣

But there’s more in this course than I knew and extra free tools in the bonus that I wasn’t aware of, plus seven places to sell your patterns, (five more ways than I use now!) so you can be sure that I’m getting stuck into my copy as well.

This one is a steal at $19 for such a lucrative business idea. Pick it up here.

Note there is also a $9 upgrade with two video trainings that give you even more options for beautiful seamless prints.

Bonus: If you buy the product (with or without the upgrade) through my links above send your receipt to me at jan@simplehappiness.biz to get my new bonus report “Simplify!” 💖💖💖
