Newsletter 30th December 2021: The results of my experiment & more news 😊

by | Newsletters


So what came up for me from yesterday’s experiment of giving my brain a task while I slept… was unexpected.

And not entirely welcome LOL

Thank you brain

You see, I love to start new things, but my brain came up with “improve what you have” 😱

It suggested taking each piece of my business bit by bit and improving it, like the British Olympic cycling team.

I so wasn’t thinking of cycling when I went to sleep LOL

Just in case you don’t know the story, Britain’s cycling team went from dismal results pre 2003 (one manufacturer even refused to sell their equipment to the Brits in case their reputation damaged the brand!) to winning more gold medals than any other country at the Rio Olympics a few years later.

The difference was they took on a new performance director Dave Brailsford who believed in the philosophy of kaizen or continuous improvement through the aggregation of marginal gains. They experimented with a wind tunnel. They were precise about food preparation and nutrition. They brought their own mattresses and pillows so athletes had a good night’s rest. They did every single thing they could. Every gain was tiny but taken together, they made a huge difference.

Now I’m not going to worry about my pillow and mattress selection, but there are actually some major things I’m not doing that I could be.

⭐Like my totally neglected social media accounts.

⭐Like not doing video.

⭐Like not using the tools I invested in that will definitely make a difference.

When I wrote down what my brain came up with, it kinda made sense.

But I might have to sneak a new project in there for the excitement factor 🤣

And because I like having too much to do.


Flash Sale Ends in a Few Hours

If you’re thinking about improving your whole product creation, delivery, and promotion strategy take a look at Naima’s self-study “Launch Me Right” program while it’s still going for a ridiculously low price with coupon code FESTIVE.

It’s even better value now with two live sessions and a chance to get Naima’s help with your business.

Get all the details here.

I’ll also be doing the training, either using it to improve every part of my business (sensible!) or testing out a new idea end to end (exciting!)

Remember, success means bringing ideas to fruition and not just having them, otherwise we’d all be millionaires, right?

NEW: Content Sparks sale

content sparks white

There’s 50% off everything in the Content Sparks Year End sale. I buy their products to learn myself as they are that good, but also love that they are white label and come with PLR commercial rights. This means you can sell the training materials yourself without having to build a course from scratch and get a return on your initial investment.

Of course, it’s better to add your own thoughts, experiences and tips, but starting from this fantastic quality foundation is such a time saver, these courses get a big “yes” from me.

Take a look at everything available and use Coupon Code: NewBday2021 to get the 50% discount.  

The only limit is that you can’t use it on items that are already discounted.

My bonus: For every $40 you spend using my link here, get a $20 voucher back from me. If you spend $80 or more, you can choose whether to get separate $20 vouchers or one single voucher to spend in my store. Just let me know. Send your receipts to me ([email protected]) to claim your vouchers.

NEW: Beautiful Art Work

If you’d like some special art work for your planners, journals and other digital products, look no further than Gabby’s Year End Sale

Gabby is selling all the art work from the past year (25 packs!) for one low price. You cannot pass on the rights to these graphics in PLR products but you could make a fantastic original and not seen everywhere product for Etsy or KDP with this beautiful work.

Take a look at everything here and use COUPON 2021BUNDLE making 25 graphic packs just $37 (a $50 saving!)

More Revenue Ideas

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 😊

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.

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 😊

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 TOMORROW: 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
