Newsletter 20th December 2021: Sliding into 2022 ūüéĀplus a gift from Stephanie

by | Newsletters


My reading group book this month was The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. It reminded me of the movie Sliding Doors where a few seconds meant the difference between catching a train or not and living your life in one way or being thrust into a whole different life.

the midnight library

The main character in The Midnight Library got the chance to try out hundreds of life decisions and to see how they would work out.

2022 is starting to feel like that for me – if I choose one business model, this might happen. If I choose another, it might be better or worse.

Who knows? It feels like we are dealing with the unknown now, more than ever before. Every decision can take us down a different path.

At least with business, most decisions are quickly¬†reversible. It’s not like marrying the wrong person or having a child.

But it’s still important to take decisions that stop us coasting along.

I know I want to keep doing the business I have now, because I love it, and it pays my bills,¬†but I don’t want to stagnate either.

It’s fun to grow, to challenge the status quo, and to try new things.

Just not too many things at once.

I want to choose one new thing and go for it in Q1. Then decide again for Q2.

So I will choose, but I wish I had a crystal ball to help ūüėä

How have you gone about deciding what to focus on for Q1?


Whatever we choose, you can be sure if we keep trying something new every five minutes, we’ll never see the same results as if we focused on one thing.

Not even close.

Yet focusing is a problem for most of us. That’s why I bought¬†this ULTIMATE FOCUS package¬†because I think it will help me.

It should help others too, once I make a product from it and get it up for sale as Ultimate FOCUS has commercial use rights and many different elements.

At less than $10, I’m not even too worried about making a¬† product from it tbh as I will get enough use out of it myself, but in the spirit of our “double it” philosophy I talked about a few newsletters ago, it would be good to make something from it and sell a few!

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.

ms bundle2 1

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 the week ahead 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.
