What the Heck is Empower Hour Anyway?

We invite you to join us for Empower Hour, but maybe you aren’t super clear on what will happen if you do. 

Or maybe the ‘group’ aspect discourages you because you don’t want to look like you don’t know what you are doing in front of other people.

Empower Hour is a way to get face-to-face time with a Simplero staff member.  We call it “Empower Hour” because we are focused on teaching, not just solving a single...

Help! My Sales Page Does Not Covert!

Have you set up the perfect product or service and not a single person buys your product? 

shutterstock_367533605.jpgYour first thought might be “There is something wrong with my sales page” especially if you can see that a lot of people have looked at your sales page, but still no one is buying.

You might be right. Maybe your sales page simply isn’t good enough. But the truth is, there can be 100 other things that affect your sales. Even if your sales page is perfect, you can end up with no...

What We Are Reading

Simplero's culture strongly supports staff development and personal growth. 

We are a group of people who read, watch, explore and discuss.  Whether it's something intellectual, something funny, something challenging or something affirming, we love to share what we encounter.  In fact, we sometimes give each other assignments ("read this, let's talk about it") when we come across something really good. 

So it occurred to us to share with you as well.  We're going to...

How to Ask for Help

shutterstock_1159110763.jpgAsking for help is an important skill to master.  We all need to ask for help sometimes, in both our personal lives and our work lives.

Asking for help can move us forward when we're stuck.  It helps us feel that we're not alone, that we have each others' back, and it feels great to support a friend, partner, stranger, or team member.

However, if we bring the wrong energy to asking for help, it can achieve the exact opposite: We end up feeling hurt and alone,...

How Much Does It Cost To Make a Membership Site, Anyway?

One of our members, Kasim Aslam, shares his experience with our features. 

In Simplero, you can create a fully functioning membership site for just $99 a month.  Less if you pay annually.

Belly Breathing

Every once in a while, we get support tickets with subject lines or messages in ALLCAPS and with lots of exclamation points.

shutterstock_171308849.2.jpgSomething along the lines of:

Subject: “IT’S NOT WORKING!!!!!”

It is clear that the writer is pretty stressed out.

I’ve been there too.  I bet we all have.  And it’s no fun. 

When we are feeling that way, we are usually too upset to communicate effectively about what is not working.  Which means it takes longer for...

Don't Offer a Coupon! Unless...

10% Off.pngIt can feel like the cartoon with the little devil on one shoulder and the little angel on the other shoulder...

Do I offer a discount on this information product to get more purchases, even though it will mean less money per purchase?  

Or do I stick with the price I think it's worth and hope for more buyers?  

Simplero makes it SUPER easy to offer a coupon on your website or via email, but should you?

Why Not to Offer Coupons

If you keep offering your fabulous product...

The Right Kind of Ad Strategy

When you spend money on ads you want to know that you are making a good investment and that those ads will pay returns.  Nobody wants to just throw money away. 

Unfortunately, entrepreneurs who are new to advertising strategy usually go about it the wrong way.

The Wrong Way

They typically look at their bank account and budget to decide how much they can afford to spend on ads. Ads can be expensive and they want to spend just enough to focus some attention on their product. This...

Messing Up

I was talking with Calvin the other day about my experience as a new Simplero staff member.  Somehow, we got on the subject of messing up. ;)

I ended up sharing something that happened to me years earlier.

Once upon a time, I was a social worker in a program that provided crisis intervention to survivors of domestic violence, stalking and sexual assault.  Most of the time, the crisis was emotional or logistical, but sometimes, it was literally life-or-death.

One woman called me ...
