Updates And Big Announcements From The Twins
Can you believe it’s already October? 2018 is almost over! As we plan for 2019, we’re working on bigger and better things that will help us create the business we want in the new year.
So what does that mean?
First things first, we’re launching a mentoring program. We’ve learned a lot since we launched this business (if you missed our recent post on 5 Lessons in 5 Years, check it out here). We’d love to help some new designers get up and running by saving them the trial and error it took to get us where we are.
What is that going to look like? We’re not entirely sure yet. We’re in the process of doing some market research so we can figure out what would be most helpful to new designers. If this is something you might be interested in, you can fill out the survey here and get a special rate if you decide to join our first round.
Next, with Veteran’s day coming up next month, we’re going to be sharing a lot of the resources that have helped me (Lily) as a military spouse to run this business and to run my life. Be sure to check us out on our Facebook page and on my personal Instagram.
The third thing is, we’re still kind of trying to figure out the best way to work with people. We’re looking for ways to scale our business without burning out. Right now our focus is on our Syt In A Week clients. After our rebrand over the summer, we decided to add custom projects back to our list of offers but we realized that we haven’t really been telling people about it. Because of the amount of work involved in a custom design we only take one of these projects a month so if you (or someone you know) wants to get on our calendar, let’s talk!
In an effort to help more people without burning out, we’re creating more products to help with the website planning process. The first one is the Website Planning Process Trello Board, which we actually launched several months ago but didn’t talk that much about. You can find out more about that here.
We are working on the It’s Not You, It’s Your Website Workbook, which basically covers the same topics as the Trello board, and might be a better fit for someone who doesn’t want to think about signing up for one more thing (although if you ask us, Trello is totally worth it, it’s been such a time saver for us!). We’ll be launching it very soon!
And finally we have the Five Website Mistakes That You Might Be Making That Could Be Costing You The Sale, which actually we’ve had available for awhile. Now, instead of it being an opt-in, it’s a free download. So you can click here and you can download that, no strings attached. But if you like it and you want to hear more, you can always sign up to our list. There’ll be a link in the PDF.
So again, as the year is closing out, we have a lot of things going on. We’re actually trying to write a book too! We don’t know about what, we don’t know exactly when that will happen, but definitely keep your eyes peeled. Because, you know, as anybody who watches our videos and read their blogs knows, we are funny when we want to be. So I’m sure the book, whatever it ends up being about, will be quite entertaining. One of our favorite author/bloggers is Jenny Lawson. If you know she is and you think she’s funny, trust me, we will be just as funny (at least we think so).
We know that our content and our marketing has been kind of, not really focused in the past…. however long you’ve been reading. Our goal over the next year is to definitely come up with content that’s more cohesive and that meets the goal of helping women entrepreneurs who are trying to grow their business. We want to help them avoid making the mistakes that we’ve made so they can create a business that supports their life and not the other way around. Sort of like our mentoring program, but on a bigger scale because it’s not necessarily just for newbies, it’s for anybody who’s in a similar situation or who could learn from us or who could benefit from our knowledge in any way.
And that’s it! Whew, that was a lot coming at you, we get it. So for those of you who don’t have time to read this whole thing, here are the highlights.
In the works: a mentoring program and a hilarious book about our experiences as entrepreneurs.
What we’re currently offering: template based designs and custom website designs.
What we’ve created and recently launched (and soon to launch): a Trello board and a workbook to help you plan your website design. Lastly we’ve turned our opt in to a free download (no more optin required!) so if you’re interested in grabbing the PDF you can download that here.
If you have any questions about what we’re working on or what we’ve got in the works feel free to reach out, we’d love to hear from you!
