Now on Gumroad: (for new subscribers)
A simple 6 point template for quickly and easily writing books, creating courses, curriculums and any other type of teachable content you can sell.
These 6 bullet points are the foundation of just about everything I create, and have reduced the amount of time, energy and mental capital I need to invest in any new writing project to an absolute minimum (and have made the process of creating again fun)
I’ve found that stripping out the superfluous silliness and streamlining each new article or idea into a ferociously focused TEACHABLE concept, is the greatest gift you can offer your readers, subscribers, fans, followers or online evangelists.
It will take you 90 seconds to read this one page PDF – but if you are coach, consultant, teacher, trainer, artist, author, mentor, mindful marketer, enlightened entrepreneur or PASSION professional……I promise, you’ll be creating more quickly than ever if you try and apply this outline to your existing approach.
Note to all existing readers and subscribers: (yes, that only means you Aunt Jane and second Cousins Chuck and Connie)
If you aren’t using Gumroad to sell your stuff, you are insane. (and even if you are, second cousin Chuck – you remain insane)
Why? Since I’ve updated this particular blog last, they’ve come out with a brand new WAY overdue marketplace feature…..(something I had hoped they’d implement long ago and requested by email several times) meaning that you can now get “discovered” in the Gumroad ecosystem simply by having products published.
Similar to Amazon’s feature set in this regard, your ideal audience can find your products, programs, content and courses through Gumroad’s recommendation engine, which appears on emailed receipts, on thank you pages and other places and spaces within the Gumroad infrastructure.
Speaking of Amazon and going insane, please look for a short documentary I will be publishing in December on how to overcome getting fucked by Amazon Prime on your pre-holiday TV purchase.
It’s going to have all of the elements we love in a documentary – compelling characters we care about (me, mostly) a few villains we don’t (Ricardo S. the supervisor in the Amazon San Jose office, mostly) – a football game with heroes (the Eagles) and villains (the Cowboys) – friends who we don’t care about (mine, mostly) who are forced to watch game at local dive bar because (spoiler alert) Amazon prime fucks you with a smile. (and blames Fed Ex)
Do note – I am using my permitted 3x usage 2015 allotment of the word fucked on this post – and I won’t use it again until 2016, I promise.
I was going to use screwed – or manipulated, or deceived, but in this case, I truly believe that fucked is the only word that will do.
Do also note that the Eagles did win in overtime, which proves again that God hates Texas.
Thank you for reading, and Jeff Bezos – check your email and keep up the good work.
If you want to call I’m free at noon.
For everyone else who is writing and creating and doing good work in the world like me – don’t forget to check out the 6 point template on Gumroad.
