Closet Design Course

O.K. So I Have a Closet Design Course.....Now What?

I have to give myself a pat on the back...I kicked ass!  It is amazing how easy it was to write the content of my closet design course!  I am so excited and I want to share it with everyone right now.....but that would be bad business wouldn't it?

And I was right, writing it was the easy part. Now what? Apparently there are certain steps I am supposed to take. An actual LAUNCH I am supposed to do.....that thought totally overwhelms me! I am just so excited that I will be helping others grow their business! SO WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

Thankfully as I have already mentioned I have a wonderful Marketing Coach Cena Block at Sanes Spaces and a group of other coachees that I can turn to for help, advice and guidance. Boy do I pick their brains because when I started hearing words like: Landing Pages, Lead Pages, Canva, Infusionsoft, Any Time Meetings, Google Hangout....I nearly crawled under my covers for an extensive nap.  I know they will help me sort through it all and get down to the nitty gritty. But O.M.G...all of this can drive me to drink!

So, now, I need to concentrate on marketing: through my blog, Facebook, NAPO, and any other venues that I can come up with (Feel free to offer ideas!)  I know that I am a Closet Design Expert but how can I prove that to you? How will you know that what I have to teach you is valuable? How can I reassure you that you CAN do it and you WILL increase your revenue?

One thing I can assure is that my class will be worth every penny! As quoted by my beta tester Amy Rehkemper from Simplify Organizing in The Closet Design Experts Facebook Group:

" Worth every penny, ladies! If any of you have interest in building this skill, you will love Tracey's class. I had the honor of being one of the first to try out her MAGIC Formula and I learned soo much... and had fun in the process. At first, I wasn't sure if I had what it took to do closet designing, but it turns out I do! I credit much of that to Tracey because she did a beautiful job of breaking everything down to the simplest form. 
I am such a fan that I just registered three of my employees to take her class too!"

I am fighting to overcome my fear and procrastination and do the LAUNCH that is expected of me A.S.A.P. but I am in search of new and creative ways to get word out as well!  ANY AND ALL suggestions would be appreciated!    I am so excited to get it to you!

To Cram or to Relax

Do you ever have those times when you are so deep into something you just can't stop? I have been living, eating and breathing this closet design course I am creating. I wake up in the middle of the night asking myself questions and solving problems. I am excited. I am obsessed! I am terrified! And I am almost done!

I can see the finish line and am at the point that I just can't get away from my computer! I am asking my friends and colleagues to read through the modules and edit my sales page. I am shooting videos and having photos edited. I am bombarding the tech support team with questions and generally making everyone nuts! (Although they are too kind to admit it).

So it's holiday time....what do I do? As a workaholic and perfectionist I keep plugging along. Getting the work done.  Cramming in as much computer time as possible each day.  

As a yogi I tell myself to slow down, relax, have some fun.....go away!!  YES! Take a vacation, time off.....you know what that is!!  A change of scenery will do you some good. Get away from all of this.  Don't even bring the computer!

The yogi side has won this battle and it's about time!. I am putting the course away for 2 weeks and going fishing!  I know great things will happen upon my return!

Happy Holidays to you and yours.

Back at you in 2016.

My Course Research and Internet Overwhelm

When I last left you I had decided not only to start writing a blog.....but to create an on line course to teach Closet Design.  Since then, I have nearly backed out of that idea a dozen times!

WHY?  The internet gives me a headache!  I started to search out the HOW's and WHERE'S and I became overwhelmed very quickly.  Who knew there are so many options to choose from. Over 330,000,000 results to be exact.  Yikes!  So how did I choose?  I just started clicking and asking for people's opinion.  You know ...what they say about opinions....everybody has one!  It did get me narrowed down to a select few platforms and a webinar to follow.

THE WEBINAR:  Oh boy!  I learned a lot from it.  What a great tool.  And how easy they made it look to just read from cards and collect money at the end for the program they are selling. I knew one thing for sure at the end "I CAN DO THAT!"  Unfortunately, it did not teach me how to create an on-line course as complex and  detailed as the one I plan on.  He taught you how to sit in front of your webcam and read instructions.......but it was a start.

THE PLATFORM:  This was even trickier...what do I need?  How do I use it?  I was in luck!  I found a platform that just felt right. It looked easy, breezy to use so I signed up for the 14 day trial. I have started playing and writing  away about the formula to closet design. To be more specific the M.A.G.I.C formula for designing the perfect closet!  Catchy Right??

So now I ask you.......what is it that YOU would like to learn about closet design?
