Most popular opt-ins: My free Brand Discovery Workbook and my free PDF '10 ways to create a cohesive brand experience'. I've found that freebies that relate to branding go down the best with new folks that land on my blog, which is great! It shows me that I'm attracting the right audience, since my main service is brand identity design.
I already gave you a sneak peek of my December goals last month because I wrote that post later than usual, but here they are again.
Prelaunch my first eBook. I have everything I need to prelaunch this book. My sales page is ready, my price is ready, the cover is complete, and I even have a few webinar cohosts in mind who have products that would go well with this book as a discounted bundle. I just need to finally push myself to prelaunch and see how it goes!
Finalize the plans for my first ecourse. I have a course topic and module ideas, I just need to do all the other stuff like write a sales page, test my ideas, create a launch calendar... fun, fun fun!
Do 2 webinars. OK, this goal is by far my scariest, but I can't wait to leap on it. Doing things that scare me makes me feeling alive. It makes me feel like I'm making progress. I'm not planning on doing these webinars along, I'm going to find some awesometastic co-hosts. Stay tuned!
Lessons I learned in November
Honestly, I didn't really learn any lessons. That feels SO bizarre to write! But I honestly don't think there were any big lessons in November. I just put my head down, hustled hard and had fun. I thought a lot about how blessed I am to be able to do what I love, and that was the only real 'lesson' I'm taking away from that month.
Some months are sluggish, slow, stressful or full of mistakes. Some are calm. Some are fun. This month was the latter, and it really reminded me why I started this biz. This month has resulted in me being fully booked until March (possibly April) 2016, and that is a truly wonderful feeling.
Devan Danielle. I'm totally in love with her blog lately. She's been on my radar for a while and she is honestly the loveliest girl! She writes suuuuper meaty blog posts about branding, and she's got her content marketing game on FLEEK.
Pat Flynn. Is it totally pathetic that I've only just started reading Pat's blog? He's probably the biggest name in the passive income game, but I've always kinda ignored him- until now. When I was thinking of switching from Mailchimp to Convertkit I saw he'd switched and wanted to know why. After reading his super long, informative post I was totally hooked on how this guy sells, writes and speaks to his audience. New loyal fan, right here!!
The Independant. A magazine put together by three powerhouse infopreneurs. It includes LOTS of articles written by your favourite bloggers, with lots of action tips and worksheets to help you build your blog and business. Yours truly may have written something for the next issue so stay tuned. ;)
