Newsletter 5th December 2021: More gifts 🎁 and my 2c on hitting the send button

by | Newsletters


Is there a perfect email you could write or a perfect moment to send one?

Maybe there is.

But I haven’t reached those dizzy heights yet. 🤣

If you’re sitting on an email list of any size but you’re not sending email to them every single week, why is that?

Maybe you only have your Aunty Beryl and your goldfish on your list, and think you’ll start once you have a few “real people.”

But that would be a mistake.

Only having a handful of people on your list is the perfect time to get used to writing and mailing.

You will find it a lot harder to press “send” when you have thousands of people reading your words.

Another worry I’ve heard is that you might lose a chunk of your list if you don’t write a brilliant email.

But a few people will unsubscribe no matter what you write, brilliant or not.

And that’s okay. We can’t please all of the people all of the time.

The unsubscribe button is there for when the content or style of a newsletter is not a good match.

You just have to get over that, keep in touch with your current list, and keep adding to it as you build your online business.

Do the best job you can when you write your email and then hit send.

And if the “best job you can” starts you down the perfectionist route, try giving yourself a two or three hour time limit to write your email so you don’t spend days worrying about every word.

DON’T Download All the Things! 

There are so many FREE goodies (over 200!!!) at Lizzie’s Christmas Party that you will need to be selective about what you get.

If you download all the things, it will be overwhelming, so take what you need and leave the rest behind. 😲

You might recognize this Birthday calendar which I contributed as it goes perfectly with our Quirky Calendar so be sure to pick this up especially if you have that product. (If you don’t, you’ll have the chance to get the original (and the matching planner) at launch price after you pick up the free birthday calendar.)

I bought Lizzie’s Premium Goody Bag yesterday as there are a few things in it that make it extremely good value for me.

Extra bonus: If you also decide to buy the premium goody bag and get it through my link, send your receipt to me at jan@simplehappiness.biz. I’ll verify your purchase and send you a $40 gift card to spend in my store.

TODAY ONLY:  Deal of the day from Coach Glue

And you can also put it to work yourself.

Because the beauty of Coach Glue is that you can use their products yourself to improve your own business and life, but you can also sell them too.


But if you want even better value than this, grab the 12 for 1 offer below and have twelve products to sell and a ready made multi-product business up and running before 2022!

If you purchase this 12 in 1 deal, you will get commercial rights to all these packages for one low price. This will save you so much time and effort creating training courses and workbooks to sell that you would be crazy to start from scratch.
