Newsletter 21st March 2022: Power hours, four ending things and a new flash sale

by | Newsletters


There are two ways to spend time on your business.

The first kind is when you sit at your PC, sometimes for hours on end. Your eyes are staring at the screen. Your hands are moving on the keyboard. But you’re not really getting anywhere. Huge swathes of time can disappear into the black hole of the interwebs with this kind of time usage.

The second kind is when you sit down to your PC with a purpose. You have a task to do and you do it. Then you check it off your list and select another task.

The same amount of time will go by. But you’ll feel a lot better by the end of it. You benefit. Your business benefits. It’s all good.

So why do we spend so much time on the first kind?

Don’t ask me! I spend a lot of my time like that too 🤣

But this week I have so much to do before I go away for six days (two consecutive trips (bad planning!)) that I’m giving myself an intervention and playing with a concept I call Power Hours again.

Basically, I decide what I’m going to focus on every hour I’m working. I start at the top of the hour with a task and work on it for an hour, getting it completed if I can, powering through my to do list.

That’s the theory anyway!

Why not join me and work your own set of “Power Hours” this week even if you’re not planning on taking six days off.  💖

This email article? Yes, I’m writing it in a Power Hour  🤣

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.

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.

(This offer seems to have a new countdown going every day!  This kind of thing is an false scarcity tactic, but it’s still a great deal and 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.
