Episode 268: Show Notes
Yes, you read that heading right! We feel like one of our dreams came true recently. We have been dying for physical products for God knows how long. Well, instead of developing our own products, which will probably happen at some point in the future, this feels like a major stepping stone in the right direction for us. We’re SUPER excited to announce it and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.
We officially have our own online shop! You can literally go buy anything from there. It’s curated to have our most favorite items from the most important categories in our lives and it’s hosted on your favorite platform ever! If you want to screw this whole episode and rather go shop, you can — we won’t hold it against you! However, if you want to know more about it, listen up first and then you can go shop til you drop!
The Set Up
Want to know how we set it up? It only took a day people! It’s a lot easier than most of you might think. We keep adding to it because it’s so easy and so awesome and we love it. This really is a secret way for us to make affiliate income. We don’t make, manufacturer or ship any of these products, we simply doing it through Amazon and are considered Amazon Influencers. Can you just set up your own influencer page? We’re not sure - we’re pretty sure we were invited to do it but MAYBE. We know for sure that you can set up to be an affiliate and do something similar. There are no qualifications to it.
What Is It?
It’s literally a pitch. It’s a page on Amazon’s platform, you’ll see a variety of categories. The ones at the top is the most recently updated category, it’s because when we update it, it’s putting the most current and relevant, the most new stuff to the very beginning. The cool thing is we tried to make it not just about business. We wanted to make sure it incorporated all aspects of your life plus be an arty Amazon junkie. We’ve included everything from office essentials to health and wellness and fashion and beauty. Even things like home stuff, our photography equipment, our podcast equipment, dog-mom stuff, travel, business books and podcasts. There will be a baby section coming soon. It’s seriously awesome. Once you’re there you can click on any sections to view it and then just browse through all the listed products. It’ll be updated frequently as it not only includes things from our homes that we already own but it also includes some of our wish-list items.
What Do We Love?
It’s kinda similar to Etsy where you can heart items and favorite things. We’d also love it if you could favorite our list because if you give us credit for saying this is a legit list and you heart the list we could be featured on The New and Interesting Finds on Amazon which changes every day. You can also follow our shop to receive our latest updates. The awesome part is that it’s legit almost everything we have in our office. We own about 90% of the things on our list. The cool part is A, you can shop and B, if you just like TCC and want to support us, just going through our link helps support this podcast. Even just linking through to our amazon shop has us getting a small portion of money anyway. So get clicking!!
What Does It Mean?
Not only does this include all the awesome sauce we’re throwing at it, it means so much more. We have also decided to bring something to y’all, that’s been on our minds for quite a while and it’s become sort of a priority. You will notice a section that is business and mindset books and as we have grown our business we really have found it more difficult to find resources to help us grow our business, in the form of courses, other podcasts and books. A lot of that is made for people starting their business and that’s great but if you’re wanting that next level - a lot of the really deep knowledge we’ve gotten has come from awesome books written by awesome people and from high end coaching experience. So, we’re not expecting ya’ll to buy a $10,000 Mastermind but we do think you can afford a $12, $14 book and access to our membership platform.
How Does It Work?
We have all these business books available to us and it’s cool, you can buy them and read them at your leisure and do with the information as you wish. However, if you want to take it to the next level awesome, we’re going to be doing monthly mindset calls and a lot of them are going to be focused on business books. We’re going to take a business book and utilize it to do a training inside of Goal Crusher Club. So, you can get access to that monthly call which is essentially going to be a new Book Club. As we’ve grown, the biggest piece that has been hard and frustrating is that we are the biggest block to our own businesses growing. We need to get our heads on straight and we want to help you too. We had our own Book Club call with our team this week and it went really well. That first one we decided to do as a test run with our own team. We’ll be announcing our first book later this month which we’ll discuss in October. If you want to get access to the Book Club and get more details, then wait for further announcements and check out the websites.
We Want You
We want to feature you all in our shop. How we’re going to make that work is still a freakin big question mark, but if you have products listed on Amazon we would love if you can go to our Facebook community and tell us about the great stuff you have in your shop (Don’t post the link!) that people would like. Maybe at some point we’ll have a form for you to fill out. Make sure you’re part of the community and holler at us!
