UPDATE: WINNERS ANNOUNCED. BIG CONGRATS TO THESE WONDERFUL WINNERS and to everyone who shared their stories: Thank you. So, so inspiring from peeps who have just started out up to people who’ve been on the journey a while now! xx
If you fancied grabbing something from Nourished Life, you can head HERE. Loads of Christmas packs!
So last month I was a part of an amazing e book bundle deal that you may well have bought and be enjoying right now. I won’t tell you about it again, because you’ll be sad you missed out. So…
I pledged with my sales, in addition to the $1 per bundle going to a UN relief project as a group of authors, to put 10% of my sales to the incredible OzHarvest food rescue powerhouse as well as 10% towards giveaways for the blog. The rest, whatever it was, was going to help me and my son go to my godson’s wedding in Mauritius next year and the rest re-invested into the business with a free e book coming soon, a new site domain, better payment gateways and e course performance and a whole bunch of items that just need doing.
Well, in the interest of transparency, I thought it would be cool to lay out all the figures. I’m amazed and excited to say with big thanks to you who did buy the bundle through me, that my revenue from the bundle sales was $13,000.
So, here’s the breakdown.
$13,000 commission from sales ex g.s.t ( I still can’t quite believe it! That’s 457 people buying the e book bundle through my link)
$1,000 facebook ads (getting your message out is expensive on facebook these days if you want anyone to see it! Liking the facebook posts of pages and businesses you like is the best way to help small business minimise these costs.)
$12,000 before tax. (I’m calculating my pledges on this figure for the 2 x 10%’s.)
$1200 towards OzHarvest, my pledged charity of choice
$1200 towards giveaways for you guys (the whole community, you don’t have to have bought the e book bundle)
That leaves $9,600 less 30% company tax is net earning $6,720 (I hope they do something good with the money, Aussie government!) , which has paid for 2 x tickets to Mauritius for the family wedding, leaving $3,500 for me to spend on building a better website and some nice design work on a free Christmas e book coming up for you guys. Yay all round!
So, that’s a whopping $1,200 going to OzHarvest from me thanks to everyone who bought it – it equates to 2,400 rescued meals going to homeless people! So essentially, we’ve fed 114 people, 3 meals a day for a week.
Here’s the payment receipt. Go team!
So amazing. If you wanted to donate for the Christmas period you can pop to their website HERE. Ronni Kahn the founder is an inspiration and a friend. The change she drives is epic, both environmentally and socially.
Then, there’s my pledge of $1200 to the giveaways. The lovely Irene from Nourished Life (the best online low tox beauty shop EVER! So strict. Never a need to worry!) has given me a discount to make my giveaway stretch further- yipee! So, here’s what you could win just in time for Christmas <3
