Updates for March 2022

Rebranding

I always thought the Club might employ a handful of people, so I worded everything as if that would someday be the case.

While I could use a clone of myself to handle all of the stuff I do for the Club, I’ve decided I only ever want the Club to be just me.

Anytime a client (or potential client) interacts with the Club, I want them to rest assured they will always work with the company’s owner and that nothing is outsourced.

Over the past month, I’ve gone through the entire business (I’m sure I’ll miss some instances somewhere) and changed the wording to reflect that the Club is, well…me.

With this change, I feel like so much weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

I’m now free to write in my own tone, and I connect more on a personal level than ever before.

I also took the opportunity to put a fresh coat of paint on the entire business.

This is evidenced by a new color scheme, typography, a focus on simplification, optimized design, etc.

Resources

In April, with the help of Gridbuilder, I introduced the new search and filtering functionality to help people find resources and find deals effortlessly. 

In March, I revamped the design of all resources (guides, code snippets, partner deals, etc.) with the help of dynamic templates created with Elementor Pro.

I then went through every resource, tidying them up to make the content more precise, easier to digest, etc.

I’ll avoid boring you with more details, but just know that this helps set the foundation for things to come in the future that will help the Club community even more.

Club Happenings

🔥 NEW PARTNERSHIP: Newsletter Glue is a plugin that helps you easily build and send posts as newsletters, halving your publishing time by 1-2 hours per newsletter, while giving you more time to polish your content, promote on social media, etc.

🔥 NEW GIVEAWAY: CSS Hero was gracious enough to allow the Club to give away Starter subscriptions to 4 lucky winners. Not to worry though, CSS Hero is already super inexpensive and for everything it does…it’s a steal.

🔥 NEW SERVICE: MyListing Website SEO Audits – Available as a one-off service and MyListing Website Care clients can request this service at no additional cost.

🔥 NEW GIVEAWAY: As part of the Club’s Droit Themes partnership, they were gracious enough to allow me to give away subscriptions for their Droit Addons for Elementor and Droit Dark Mode plugins.

🔥 NEW SERVICE: MyListing Business Consultations – These used to be FREE, 15-minute consultations, but have since been changed to a paid service. Why? Multiple reasons. People would book time and because they didn’t have any skin in the game (i.e. the service was FREE), they sometimes wouldn’t show up at all. Additionally, it is not uncommon for professionals to charge for their consultation time, and some of them charge up to $10 per minute. I’m definitely not charging anywhere near that. In fact, if you end up working with me, I’ll credit your consultation time towards your project.

👎GOING AWAY: Partner Giveaways: I’ve made the decision to not do these any longer. There are a couple of giveaways yet to run and then that’s it. The lack of engagement just wasn’t enough to warrant the amount of work that goes into it. It doesn’t seem like this is something that will be missed all that much and it gives me more time to help the Club community in other ways.
