Stepping Up To The Times! and a Freebie

Whether you are a business entreprenuer, a school teacher, carpenter or an artist, the times we live in mean it is essential to find other means of financial flow. How do you do that when there is no money coming in currently. Good question. You don’t really need money to start finding your passion online, and turning that passion into creating something great.

I have been involved in many givaways over the years, called by many different names. I have participated in PLR givaways, scrapbooking blog trains, book givaway blog hops, even recipe hops and tutorials hops. Some of these have had their ups, and some have had their down sides, but one thing I noticed they all had in common, not everyone was ready when they were supposed to be there. With maybe the exception of JV marketing type givaways, most blog trains and blog hops had “missing pieces” in the way of participants. I am not really sure why this phenomena occurs, but it can be both annoying and frustrating to both the hosts, and the followers. I stopped doing blog trains for this reason, and also because it usually required placing a list of people participating, including their links on your website or blog, (in order for the train/hop to keep moving) and inevitably there were always late arrivals, or no shows, or links that were broken initially, oh well, you get the picture.

I have been in several marketing/business givaways recently, and they have been great, but I really missed hosting my own as I once did, so I decided to do it again. That is where the CMA Work From Home Success Givaway comes in (whew long title).

The difference is in 2 aspects:

1: The way the submission and gifting system will work, all taken care of from one page, no sign ups, just click on a gift and go to each persons landing page. This also enables the pubic to find it too, better SEO, as nothing about the givaway is hidden behind a sign up or login page (also, if you are a participant and you miss the train when it takes off, so to speak, you have missed the train) and

2: I want to include gifts that will help a variety of people.

That last thing means, most GAWs are centered around a theme of some sort, for instance, a marketing GAW might be more about SEO, building your business, Podcasting, etc, and this is awesome, because these are all tools we should probably be learning in the current world I spoke of. Some focus on health, well being etc, and this is also the cat’s pajamas (I have always wanted to say that) There were themes specifically for scrapbooking, giving away kits and clip art for fun and home use, but what about now, many folks can use this kind of resource for a home business etc that they can or will start. The point I am making is Givaways are not, and should not be limited to one niche at a time anymore. There are marketers, and business services using and needing graphics, as well as they need lists, and planners, journals and more. In todays world, all these things are suddenly colliding, and if you don’t see it, take a further look. Our world is going digital, now more than ever before, and it will only get more digital as time goes on (KDP, Amazon Kindle, recipes, help books, how-to’s, crafts, etc etc). It does not even have as much to do with our current world catastrophe, it is just the way we are heading. In 1967 I went to a world fair in Canada and saw the future! They were showing us how in 50 years we were going to be speaking to our loved ones from 1000 miles or more away, over a screen that we could see eachother in and talk freely. People were very skeptical, but hey, look where we are, right were they said we would be!

Sure, we may go back to a somewhat normal life someday, but the world has already changed, and we need to keep moving with it if we don’t want to be left behind, and getting tools that can help people start a new life, an independant life working from home, is what this is all about. How satisifying for all is that! All anyone needs to start is a blog (you can get those for free too) and some help and determination, so as my favorite TV character always says, ALLONS-Y (look it up)

Yesterday I put out some info on the new GAW and a link to join as a participant. Today I will post the link to that article to read what I said, and also a link to the new page on CMA, where you will also find the subscription link to be a givaway contributor (different from the CMA mailing list). All free of course, the point is to help others, not make money here. The help is a win win, participants help newcomers and people who want and need their resources, and gain new subscribers, the rest is up to you, to build a lasting connection with your new subscribers/folowers.

Happy Spring and a May Freebie

It’s been a pretty wild ride for most of us lately, hasn’t it. I know it has been for us here in Richmond Virginia.
Like most folks, been locked up in the house now since March 14th. Hope all of you are doing okay, and still have your sanity.

I am going to make this months opening post a little short, because I have lots going on today, and 10 windows open to boot, bet you know what that means, and if you don’t, it means I have overwhelmed myself for today. Ha ha, isn’t that always the case.

Anyway, I do have lots of new things I am working on for you all, including some more graphics for those art and junk journals. In the meantime, if you have not checked the store lately, there are a few new planners and products I think you might like. I also have some more freebies waiting to be loaded for everyone.

The freebie I have attached today, is and oldie but still worth some goodness. Basically it’s a pack of 15 WP themes you can use for your own blogs, or sell if you like, in any case, just follow the license rules in both of the zips included, and do with them as you wish. The sites I originally purchased these from back in my marketing days, 1999 or there about, may or may not still exist, but WordPress themes always seem to be popular. For personal use, if you have any knowledge of coding etc (which I DO NOT) you can change the themes to suit your liking. Add your own flair and graphics and logo. Click below!

WP Themes

More freebies on the way, as well as at least one brand new package you can have Resale Rights for made by your truly!

Vegetarian Advantages MRR Gift

As already mentioned in previous newsletters, and blog posts, I am sorting through numberous stacks of valuable information, books, and software, some of which you are seeing added to the store(s) for resale etc, and some you are getting as gifts, either through membership, newsletter subscription, facebook groups, or simply by reading the website blogs.

Some of the things I have decided to hold in priority as I sort through this massive library, is our current global state, one thing in mind is food, shopping, cooking and eating during these stressful and unsure times. I was a bit lucky in a sense more than some, as I was raised with much older parents than the norm, in a time when the world was still reeling from the 2nd world war in Britain, through Viet Nam and on to our current days. My mother was from the old country and my dad was an Italian’British Seaman for the British Merchant Marines. Even tho I balked then, I grew up watching and eating cooking from scratch, and lots of beans, legumes and fresh fruits and veggies mom used to grow in the gardens.

We are now finding it necessary to go back to those times. Those of us who were not raised this way, may feel more than a little stressed and lost as to what to do when the stores seem bare, and going out in public is the scariest thing ever. This is why one of my priorities is, food, growing and cooking, recipes, and healthy eating. Also many of the planners I have already made, or that are in the works are also geared to this subject.

So with that said, here is a gift for those of you who are into healthy diets and eating. It is an older package, and some of the links inside are dead, as the company who first published it is no longer, but the info is still good, and you are getting Master Resale Rights with this gift to do as you wish with, just follow the original license inside!

Happy eating and stay safe!

Teaching Classes Online

Hello my friends,
Today I have a little freebie for you I made up due to having several teachers as friends.
I had been hearing a few mention concerns about how they were going to conduct their classes online, afraid their students would just tune them out etc. While I don’t know if that is true, and I suppose it depends on the teacher themselves, I can not help with the teaching aspect, although I may be able to provide some tips to those of you who have no idea where to start.

While many of you do not have the tools for things like group chat, or on screen chat, there are some ways you can create lessons, lectures, or other forms of lessons for free online. One of those being Podcasts. There are several services online that will allow you to create podcasts, some even provide a webpage for you to invite listeners to interact with the podcast through live chat. Try searching google for “create a free podcast”.

Other ways of course, are the use of PDF’s, essentially these are digital books. They can be read online, or downloaded to your pc, and read, or printed out into a physical book or binder. Most of these tools are already in your computer as standard tools. Powerpoint where you can create numberous charts and presentations, and Adobe Reader to create PDF’s for your students to download and print. You really don’t need much more, even if you are an artist, as Powerpoint has pretty much everything you need. No fancy expensive graphic or art program needed.

As far as handing in homework assignments etc… the freebie I have included, has forms for email addresses, website addresses and passwords, to-do lists, and a few more for you to use, and you can always think up your own. Finished assignments can be emailed as PDF’s, text or wordpad items, containing each students completed assignments. There would be no excuse for not knowing where to email it as I have provided forms for them to fill out with the given info. Just print it out or save it to your desktop and it’s always there. Also, another suggestion is for you, as the teacher, to save the PDF I am providing as JPGS (you can convert them at https://www.online-convert.com if you need to, and add the jpgs to a Powerpoint file, type in the pertinant addresses, websites, and email addresses they need, turn that into another printable PDF, and wallah, they don’t even have to write those in themselves, you have provided it for them.

I could even suggest creating a free forum as a gathering place for teachers and students. One that comes to mind is forumotion.com (do NOT pay for it if you plan to make it temporary or secondary, there is no need, it is full featured enough as free, and by law they provide a secure SSL lock to make the forum secure)

I am sure many of you already know or have thought of on your own, some of the suggestions I have made, but I was surprised at the amount of educators I knew that seemed lost as to how to proceed now. Good luck to all of you, and if I can provide any further tips, I will, and please don’t hesitate to ask me questions also!

Here is your gift.
