Newsletter 29th December 2022: Another experiment (try this one tonight) ūüėä

by | Newsletters


Apparently, if you want inspiration to arrive as if by magic, you should be telling your brain what you want just before you go to sleep.

Jot down your goals, then ask your brain questions, and let your subconscious sort out the answers while you get your night’s rest.

The more specific your questions the better.

quotes of Thomas Edison

In the morning, so you don’t forget what your brain came up with, instead of grabbing your phone,¬†free write any thoughts that come to mind before they disappear. (Keep a notebook and pen¬†beside your bed.)

I’m going to try it tonight ūüėä I often come up with ideas in the early morning anyway while I’m in a half-awake state so I think this will just be a way of making ideas happen more often.

If you try it, let me know if it works for you.

I’m just hoping I get to sleep tonight. I had a bit of insomnia going on yesterday so my brain wasn’t mulling over any problem other than “why aren’t you sleeping?” ūü§£

NEW: Do not miss this. Two live sessions with Naima now included

I talked about¬†Naima’s self-study “Launch Me Right” program¬†yesterday.

In case you don’t know, Naima is my business coach and I’ve been working with her¬†since October 2020.

I paid for a full year of coaching after doing a¬†five day workshop with her, even though, on paper,¬†I couldn’t afford it.

When renewal came up, it was a no brainer and I didn’t think twice about paying for another year.

The profitability of my business grew so much.

Wait, I actually now have a business LOL

Of course Naima didn’t do the work. She isn’t creating the products or sending out the emails. And I’ve had wonderful help from others too in our community. Good friends and partners.

But Naima is always there with practical advice for turning ideas into reality.

Advice. And accountability. And technical training.

Reviewing a sales page or a strategy.

Helping to make it happen with templates and plans and next steps.

And just somehow making sure I don’t take my eye off the ball.

And right now, she’s offering a whole¬†training program “Launch Me Right”¬†at a crazy price.

Like $97 crazy.

Seriously do not miss it.

Use coupon code FESTIVE to get that offer.

And run, don’t walk to try out her brand of training. Watch her coach in recorded live workshops taking people from the inkling of an idea through to implementation, taught in such a way that you can do it too and with all the tech you need, worksheets and examples so that you can follow along¬†step by step.

Taking action on your business and launching your product, beginning to end.

And now including an EXTRA bonus –¬†two live Q and A¬†sessions so you get a chance to get¬†Naima’s help with your business too.

Get all the details here.

In case you’re wondering, I’ll be doing the training as well, testing out a new idea end to end.¬†Now I just have to decide which idea to use from¬†the many jumping around in my head¬†at the moment¬†ūüėä Thank you Alessandro (see below)! I think I’ll ask my brain to sort it out¬†tonight ūüėä

New Revenue Stream?

If you’re still not sure of your primary business model for next year or you simply want to add a new revenue stream to your business, the¬†perfect bundle of products is now cheap as chips.

I bought Alessandro’s 2020 pack last year, the 2019 pack the year before that, and I bought this one too, because they are full of ideas that spark potential revenue streams for my business.

It’s a great way to see what you could do and you’ll quickly understand the basics of each revenue model and how to get started.

Tip: Use these products as a launchpad for a new business stream. Go deeper into the model of your choice than other buyers before you start so you can put your own spin on things ūüėä

Take a look at all 21 products¬†(which originally sold individually for a total over $400) and¬†grab the bundle quickly while it’s just $17.

New: What did you do with the latest PLR articles you bought? 

Maybe you loaded them onto your blog or they are just sitting on your hard drive.


They’re really not doing much good there ūüėä

Could you do more with them?

You bet.

Enter Barry Rodgers and his case study. Barry took five articles that he bought for $20 and turned them into $5,637 (so far) and he tells all in his case study, including

The “Magic Ingredient” every product has to have or it will flop (page 2)
The key thing to look for if you are starting with PLR (page 5)
The “In Demand” product type that you don’t need a 6 figure track record to market (page 9)
The two upsells that will take you less than 5 seconds to create (page 14)
At least a dozen hidden tips that are not obvious but make all the difference
The tools (paid and free) that make life as a product creator so much easier
The “two step” strategy for product launches (page 16)

The report is only about $10 today. There are upsells but you don’t need them. You get everything promised on the sales page. It’s 24 pages,¬†the font is quite large, but all¬†the detail is in there. It won’t take you all day to read, but hopefully, you’ll get it and it will make you¬†think about what you could be doing with all the assets you have on your hard drive.

Your model won’t be the same as Barry’s unless you are in the internet marketing space. But that’s not the point of this case study for me. It’s about opening your eyes to the value of what you have already or could get at very low cost today.

It’s inspiration and a method¬†for¬†putting what you have to work in your business.

ENDS SOON: Mockup Shots 

This is a product designed to make your self published books look amazing.

Visibility is the key to making sales. Once you do all the hard work of getting traffic, you need great images for people to stop and take notice when they land on your page.

Otherwise, it’s all for naught.

I’ve had¬†Mockup Shots¬†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.

The cover reveal videos are amazing!

Spidy Cover

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 rest of the¬†week 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
