Newsletter 7th April 2023: The right teacher 🤔 & other good things

by | Newsletters


Some people are great teachers. That is their gift and they can teach you the basics of what you need to know without being in the business of doing that thing themselves.

There’s value in that if you are just starting out.

But once you know the basics, be sure to look for a teacher who is in the trenches and walks the talk every day.

That way you’ll get the nuances and the advanced path, a way to go beyond what others in your niche are doing.

Look for examples of the teacher doing the thing they are teaching.

If they teach web design, do you like their designs?

If they teach email marketing, sign up for their list and see what they do.

Does their way suit you, your style, and how you like to do business?

If it doesn’t, it may still be worth doing that course to take your knowledge one step further (one tip can be worth thousands!) but only if you have time and money to spare.

Otherwise, keep looking.

And if possible, look for a course where you have access to the teacher so that you can ask the questions that are sure to come up.

Now that we have AI spouting out course outlines and even full courses, you need to be extra vigilant with your course dollars. Especially as AI doesn’t always give the right answers! 💖

loris digtal phone planner training

Digital Phone Planners are hugely popular.

You may have come across our template for these (or even own it already!)

We deliver that with an instruction booklet on how to make it unique, but we don’t train you on how to make a digital phone planner from scratch.

Now, Lori has released a course to show you how to do that.

Save until end of day Monday with coupon code CALLME to make the course just $27

I hesitated for ages before I bought Thrivecart.

It’s a big chunk of change and another thing to learn to use.

But that hugely powerful program is not as tricky as I expected.

Compared to Amember which I use for my printables shop, it’s a breeze, and there are very clear step by step instructions in their help section.

People are so used to buying there that the checkout feels familiar and that’s always a good thing.

And the bump and upsell features are very powerful.

Not to mention housing everything – products and courses – in Thrivecart Learn (included with the cart.)

I love that you can make it as pretty as you want. 🤣

But what I love even more, is waking up to the Thrivecart order bot notices…

None of my income is truly passive at the moment (apart from the KDP chunk – thank you Amazon) but it sure feels like it when you wake up to this:

thrivecart order bot

I should add this doesn’t happen every morning. This is something to do with the launch of those little monsters, below 🤣

That’s what I mean by not passive. Creating that product was a lot of work for me and my team!

But anyway, I digress.

If Thrivecart could help your business, don’t wait around too long as it currently has a one-time charge. It’s been like that since the start but there are mutterings that they can’t possibly sustain that forever.

My bonus: If you purchase Thrivecart through my link, send me your receipt ([email protected]) and get your choice of three bonus reports from the list at the end of this newsletter or a $100 coupon for my store 💖💖💖

Fun Monster Chore Chart white background

Our latest product is a Fun Monster Chore Chart spreadsheet with PLR commercial rights.

Parents are always looking at ways to make chores more interesting for their kids and these charts are perfect for that.

Customers just have to enter a name and their chores on the daily and/or weekly chore charts to start.

Then when they check off a chore, one of twelve cute and colorful monsters pops up with a “well done” message.

By the end of the week, they’ll have a very colorful sheet (if the chores have been done) which can be printed off.

These spreadsheets use Google sheets which most customers will be familiar with and have free access to, but they don’t rely on any spreadsheet knowledge.

Monster Chore Chart white background

If monsters are not for your niche 🤣 you can easily change the graphics to any theme you like and add your own unique designs.

You can even create multiple versions for different niches to sell in your store.

Full simple instructions with screen shots are included (26 page instruction booklet) for editing the spreadsheets.

The interface is also very simple for customers. They just have to add their chores and check the boxes as they go!

The chore charts would make a great lead magnet for mommy bloggers or addition to any store with a relevant theme (though I have to say I’ve found the monsters a fun and cheerful addition to my day – I’ve been using them as a kind of habit tracker. 🤣)

The Fun Monster Chore Charts are just $17 during launch (no coupon needed)

Get all the details here:

There are two optional offers.

On the checkout page, you’ll find an option to get a seller’s pack for $7 to help you get the product to market quickly.

This includes an editable Canva template to create a PDF instruction booklet for customers, 10 product mockups, 150+ relevant keywords, and a sample product description specifically written to sell this product.

You’ll also see an upsell after purchase for an extension kit which includes

▶️ a set of 12 cute custom unicorn graphics which could replace the monsters to create a different version of the chore charts
▶️ 100+ customization ideas to help create unique versions of the product
▶️ detailed instructions on extending the number of columns and rows (without messing up the calculations!) so that buyers could make a monthly or even annual chart,

The upsell is just $9.
