And we will not change our minds. This is it. This week.
Why the about face on sales??? We said in June we would do a regular sale the last full week of each month up until the end of the year.
Well, total failure.
What is success to us? Having writers take the workshops or classes to keep learning. What the regular sales did from June until now basically caused the writers who are taking workshops and learning to be cut more than in half. So the sales don’t help more writers take classes, they instead cut the number of people taking classes and learning. And that is the only reason we do these workshops is to help writers.
I asked a couple people why this happened with the sales, people who understand the thinking of sales in the real world. It seems that when there is a regular sale, people tend to wait for the sale to happen. Then, when it comes around, if they are busy, they just go “I’ll get it next month.” And then that pattern continues. I bet a lot of people reading this did just that.
Well, for sales for WMG Teachable classes, this is the end. There is no next month. We started the sales 2.5 years ago in the depth of the pandemic and are ending them this week.
Last day is Sunday, October 30th. The code to get 50% off is:
Other major changes…
I will have the November regular workshops up in a couple of days, but there will only be six of them. (Cut down from 12.) I am sorry you didn’t get to the workshop you were wanting but it will be classic.
The six Regular workshops that will continue to get my feedback on assignments are:
WRITING INTO THE DARK
TEAMS IN WRITING
WRITING WITH DEPTH
KILLING THE CRITICAL VOICE
Those are the six classes Kris and I feel are worth making sure people get off to a good start.
The workshops that are going to Classic Status in a few days are:
Covers101, Heinlein’s Rules, Speed of Writing, Writing Short Stories, Writing Sales Copy, and Media Kit.
Six workshops that will no longer take my feedback on the assignments.
Again, the six November regular workshops and the six new classic workshops will be available in a few days.
And yes, no worries, we will continue to add in new workshops. And the start of the year we will be doing the ADVANCED nine-week workshops I have talked about.
The Decade Ahead workshops will be starting up again on January 1st in a brand new format. Basically, they will be done like the Motivational Monday classes have been done, something every Monday for the entire year to think about for the decade ahead. Everyone who is already signed up for the Decade Ahead and has been signed up since the pandemic will be included automatically. You can still sign up now in this last sale.
So for one week, until Sunday October 30th, for the very last time, everything on WMG Teachable is 50% off.
Just hit purchase on the class you want, then on the next page put in the code and you should be able to get the class or workshop for half price.
The code is:
I will announce here when I have the Regular November workshops and the new Classic workshops up on Teachable.
