Before I share this BRAND NEW List-Exclusive opportunity to help you leverage your current business and network to build an additional stream of income, I want to tell you my story.
About 3 years ago, I devised a business model that can be run really lean and mean, from anywhere in the world. It is not an MLM, there is no product to stock and you don’t have to create anything new from scratch. In fact, I launched the beta version of this business in a weekend and started making money.
Chances are very very good that you already have a market that wants your products in place, and you probably have a few low to no cost ways to reach your ideal customers.
So I started this business that grew into slideberry.com, providing Done-For-You materials for health and wellness coaches and practitioners. But you may not know the whole story of how I got it going and what it has done FOR me.
Just a few years ago I was a health coach with an ok business. Things were plugging along fine, but I wanted more. Although I had run a couple of groups, my income was constrained to the hours I had available to see clients and promote my business. I was frustrated, because part of the reason I started my own business was to have more flexibility and time to spend with my son.
I wanted to break out of the hours-for-dollars model.
At the same time, I saw a lot of fellow coaches frustrated by content creation for their businesses… what to write for blog posts, how to create and orchestrate a presentation, or how to design and produce an information product.
A light bulb went on – I am kind of a geek and I write faster than I can push the content out the door for my own coaching work! So I started to share my content with other coaches using a Minimal Viable Product model and quickly validated that selling niche-specific Done-For-You content was a viable business concept!
And, I can help way more people than my private and group programs can ever do because I am helping many fellow coaches to change the life of more people!
slidebrry.com was profitable from almost day 1. Since it is a completely online and very leveraged business model, I have a lot of flexibility both time and location-wise.
I grew this business to hit the 6-figure mark in just 18 months – figuring out most of the stuff on my own, generating new ideas, learning, improvising and experimenting as I went. That time frame may not be super spectacular, but consider that I have two kids – one of them was born during these 18 months – and work about 25 hours a week, I’d say it’s not too shabby at all.
I created this business to fit my lifestyle – I call the shots. I work about 4 hours a day with very little constraints to my schedule (and with little monkey throwing cheerios right next to me.) I took 2 weeks off last October to go cycling in France, and the revenue was not affected at all. In fact, this 5-figure month turned out to be my top 3 highest earning month last year!
If you do this business model right, it’s definitely about working smart, not hard.
It is about applying the right structure to the right opportunity.
This business model can be run really lean and mean. You don’t need a big overhead or marketing budget, making it possible to be profitable from the get-go.
When I started the beta version of the business, I whipped up a website in a weekend at no cost, and I continued to run it with a very lean budget even after the revenue exploded. I spent a grand total of $284.24 to get my website redone a couple of years ago, and another $97 later on to get my shopping cart system in place. My only recurring expense is monthly charge for Mailchimp. (You may want to spend a wee bit more than $0 at the beginning to do it the “right” way, and I will show you how.)
All these numbers translate to a HIGH PROFIT MARGIN and LOW STRESS over overhead spending.
This business model has also opened up other possibilities for me in terms of business growth and income potential. All leveraging what I already had in place for my business, my experience and expertise, and well as my existing network.
This business model can be used by coaches, consultants and any other service professionals – as long as you and others in your field of expertise rely at least partly on using content to promote and generate revenue, you can make it work for you. (If you are not sure, you can email me and we can figure out if this business model is right for you.)
Why Done-For-You CONTENT?
And what does it gotta do with YOU?
We have probably heard, especially in the online marketing world, that “CONTENT IS KING.” What you may not realize is, even though you may be able to easily create content such as blog posts, articles, presentations, ebooks, and other information products, many coaches, consultants and practitioners do feel challenged in this area. They either don’t know where to begin, what to write, or maybe they don’t have the time or interest to write.
There is even the term “content marketing” – content is essential in driving traffic, adding value, building the “know, like and trust” factor, as well as generating revenue. It has become an essential component in building a solid online presence – and who doesn’t need that?
This is where you come in – if you have been in business for a while and have a good collection of content that has worked for you (you don’t need a ton – a few good pieces will get you started!) – you are in a good place to start a Done-For-You content business!
You can gather your own materials and create pre-written content others can purchase from you. It’s that simple – you see, you already have the content so all you need to do is clean it up and add a few things, put it on a website and tell others about it through you existing network of fellow coaches, consultants or practitioners.
Of course there are some nuances to making it all work together, and strategies to structure your content and business so it’s not a one-product wonder. And those are the juicy stuff I am going to show you in this BRAND NEW 8-week training program.
Since I started slideberry.com to serve health and wellness coaches, quite a few similar businesses have cropped up. There IS money in there. This business model WILL catch on. It will be smart to jump in now and establish a strong foothold and authority status in your space and claim your “territory.”
(I have my ears on the ground, and I have yet to encounter a training program like this one – it is brand new, unique materials. You might have heard of private label content, yes. But the way I structure these materials takes you BEYOND just content so you can provide excellent value to your customers, making them want your stuff again and again. How do I know? Because I regularly receive “love notes” from repeating customers!)
Introducing “Build Your Done-For-You Content Empire” Mentoring Program
This is an 8-week small group-mentoring program with a lot of individual attention. I will show you how to build your very own DFY content business by leveraging your current business and network.
You will be able to add an additional stream of income, without having to start from scratch. You have an existing client base you can tap into right away (aka, other coaches, consultants and practitioners in your field whom you already know), making your marketing a lot simpler, easier and cheaper. It will take up much less time than if you were to start something from scratch, and of course, much less effort and stress so you can truly enjoy the fruit of your labor.
If you already have a coaching/consulting/service-based business plugging along,
I bet you don’t have a whole lot of time and energy for mishaps and detours.
I have been through all the trial-and-error, so you don’t have to. I have invested tens of thousands of dollars to learn general “business and marketing” then APPLIED the information within the context of selling DFY materials so everything you learn will be RELEVANT to building this business you want.
This mentoring program distills 3 years of knowledge, experience (and face plants) into 8 weeks of knowledge, strategies and killer tactics.
If it took me 18 months to hit the 6-fig mark by figuring it out on my own,
imagine how much faster you can rock this out if you get my secret sauce!
I will be tailoring the materials as we go, based on the needs of the group. I am structuring the curriculum on 3 tracks, so you will be tackling them in parallel, with an eye to getting your business up and running as soon as possible. (I was a project manager for 10 years so I can’t help but consider the “get shit done” side as well!)

You too can have these RAVING customers
who will buy from you again and again:
“I have purchased a LOT of Slideberry’s done-for-you materials, and used them successfully in heaps of different ways. The Done-For-You articles provide me with content for my weekly newsletters and blogs and tid-bits to share on Facebook and Twitter, so I never lack inspiration to share with my tribe. The [ROCK YOUR DETOX] System helped me run a very successful group detox including a preview teleseminar series that added 300 new subscribers to my list. I also repurposed the detox materials to create a report that bring me at least 5 new subscribers every week when they download it. The 21 Days Of Wellness [Email Coaching Program] materials have formed the foundation for an online course I run as an evergreen product that brings me passive income every week.
The materials have basically helped me increase my list size, increase my incomeand helped me build community effortlessly, as I haven’t had to wrack my brains coming up with editorial content and I have saved time on preparing materials that would have otherwise taken me forever to put together myself.
Ling’s materials are so easy to use in many different ways, and it is also easy to use the content as inspiration and to then put your own slant and voice into it, making it unique. Ling has been a godsend for me as I build my business while also working full time. I could have done it myself, but not having to has given me more time to work on the things that really matter, and I have seen my business soar in the last 6 months.”
~ Simone Samuels, Certified Holistic Health and Lifestyle Coach, The Wellness Warung
“Slideberry allowed me to have programs that were more professional and easily marketed within a reasonable amount of time. By using the Done-For-You programs I am more comfortable offering multiple programs, workshops etc. It allows me to progress and expand and takes some of the work out of it. It takes a long time to set up your business and put together content. I am working out of space at a Chiropractors office and this let me have programs and services to offer right off the bat.
Slideberry’s Done-For-You materials give me many more options and ways to reach potential clients than saying ‘I have a 6 month program.’ I can offer a 21-day email program (great as a incentive give-away etc.) Material for presentations (the hardest thing to put together in my opinion) and it got me start creating audio programs which would have been a distant thought without Slideberry’s Done-For-You New Year Group Program.
I have been tremendously satisfied with the materials that I have ordered. So far I have put together the 21-day email program and it has been going out for a week. This has been wonderful and it was easy to make it my own and launch.
For the most part I use Slideberry’s materials as a way to make all my extra money and help me to have content to offer above and beyond my typical “signature” program. It has allowed me to start to be successful as a new Health Coach just about to graduate. I thank you it has taken a lot of the stress out of getting started.”
~ Kerry Fleckenstein, Green Fields Health and Wellness
p.s. keys to successful business include knowing where to find you market and having something that they want. We already got those two important factors “checked!” for you by leveraging your current business and network. You will be launching yourself amidst a load of hungry customers who will THANK YOU for what you have to offer!
p.p.s. this can become a truly awesome lifestyle business for you (I don’t start working before my morning yoga, I spend time with my two kids, and I sleep 8 hours a night…) with a lot of potential to grow and expand into other revenue sources after establishing yourself as a resourceful authority. Like I said, this business model WILL catch on so be smart and be the first to claim your throne!
p.p.p.s. I know this can be a big decision – you will be doing something brand new in your business… it means investing time and effort in something you may not have done before (that’s why I am here for you!) And this also means a super exciting and lucrative opportunity if it’s right for you. I want to be there help you make the best decision for YOU – if you are really drawn to this mentoring program but still have questions or need some support to come up with a “yes” or “no” – just email me and we will get on the phone for a “dig deep” conversation. There will be NO hard-selling – if I see that you are not ready, or if this program is not right for you, I will tell you so and we can all move on with no “yuck” energy.
Still got Q’s? Shoot me an email ask me anything.
