Newsletter 20th April 2022: Doing it solo 💖 sell printables from your own site & a lucrative market to explore

by | Newsletters


This is the third email in a series to help you reduce the workload involved in creating a business or a new income stream.

If you missed yesterday’s tip you can find it here. And Monday’s here.

Today’s tip is about not trying to do everything yourself.

When you’re just starting in business it’s difficult to afford help, and a little later, it’s difficult to let go of “your baby.”

But if you can possibly outsource some of your tasks, I encourage you to do so.

Right from the beginning.

You’re pretty much bound to burn out if you’re struggling to run a five or six-figure business yourself, so if you want to get to that level, why not start the way you mean to go on with smart delegation.

That means understanding what you’re delegating, how long it should take (and cost) and the results you want to achieve by delegating the task.

And finding the right person.

Practice with a small task on Fiverr or Upwork and branch out from there.

Pretty much everyone can afford to delegate a few tasks in that way.

And it gives you experience in recruiting help and more importantly dealing with people other than you working on your business.

I have a full-time and a part-time VA now, but I started out years ago, before I did my graphic design training, having book covers made on Fiverr and I employed people on Upwork to write endless articles for my affiliate blogs. I employed proofreaders and editors too for my novels.

I’d like to say the result of every task I outsourced was brilliant and it all worked perfectly.

It wasn’t and it didn’t. Not every time. But well enough that I repeated the exercise over the years.

And I was glad I had that experience when it came to recruiting someone full time.

When you take on someone even for a small task, don’t think of them as a cost to your business but as an asset. Because they are getting the job done more quickly (and often better) than you ever could working alone.  💖



If you would like to create an income stream which is not dependent on one of the big platforms like Etsy and Amazon, create a shop of your own!

You can instantly upload all the PLR you have rights to and get it selling. Or create as many printables as you like and upload them without listing fees.

But then there’s a fly in the ointment:  getting traffic to your own store.

To help you prevent that problem, Becky has a new course out today Printables Blog Academy (four months in the making) to show you how to drive high converting traffic to your store from a printables blog, the exact system she uses for her own highly successful high traffic printables business.

Watch how she does this step by step in 34 videos right from planning and setting up your blog through promoting your printables.

The course with all the juicy details is just $47 for launch week ($50 off with coupon code PBA50OFF until the 27th) and it includes a $30 coupon for Becky’s PLR store .

My bonus: Buy Becky’s course through my link and receive a $20 to my store as well and also choose a bonus report from the list at the end of this newsletter 💖💖💖

coach glue packages

This is an amazing deal on all these Coach Glue training packages  available only until April 21st.

These packages include full-blown video scripts that you can easily record to create your multi-media training course, but if you don’t do video, don’t worry, because you get the scripts as text files and you can turn those video scripts into any kind of content. In fact, you can use the text like that whether you make videos with them or not.

And you get a whole lot in the training packages besides video scripts.

This is a rare opportunity to save as much as this on a Coach Glue package and have your own course ready to sell in days rather than toiling for weeks or months to start from a blank slate.

Use coupon code: 70 to get 70% OFF

Take a look at all the packages available with this deal and see how many ideas there are there for using this content.

I’m sure you’ll be blown away by the possibilities of the training courses and info products you could create for such a low fee.

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 ([email protected]) 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.

NOTE:  A few people have asked for one of my bonus reports when they bought one of my own products but I haven’t been offering these as I don’t want to compete with my affiliates who like to offer their own bonuses or who maybe don’t have time to make extra bonuses.

So here’s what I’ll do for any sales going forward from today. For my products only, whether you buy through my link or through an affiliate, whenever you spend $17 or more in one transaction, you can also choose a bonus report from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖

By the way, there are a few new bonuses in the works. I just have to get them done and out of the works!
