Too busy to announce my own launch here…

How To Think Sideways ULTRA launched yesterday at noon.

I’d worked 27 hours straight starting Tuesday at 8 AM to get the launch live on time, and Margaret and I spent all day and a lot of the night YESTERDAY fixing little bugs that hadn’t shown up in testing, and helping folks who forgot their passwords and I realized just this minute that I’d forgotten to post the link to the course on my own website.

Which is, in fact, pretty lame.

The sign-up page describes EXACTLY what you’ll receive. A lot of the 27 hours I spent the day and night before was me writing it to make sure I didn’t miss ANYTHING.

How to Think Sideways ULTRA: 3-Day Introductory Discount.

The discount is $100 (or more) But it’s already almost half over because I was swamped for so long. I’m sorry about that. But if you want to get the course with the discount, you do still have some time.

It goes up to the regular price Friday at noon EDT.

      Sleep. What I had planned for this afternoon.

      Turns out? Not so much.

    You deserve a rest after this!

    I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all that you do for us. I purchased HTTS when it was first introduced all those years ago and the fact that I’ve received all of the upgrades without paying another cent is beyond generous. All the content you have added has increased the value of HTTS tremendously. I continue to purchase your courses because I know that not only will you provide the highest quality information you can, you also have the best customer service than any other. You truly represent the idea of paying it forward and I know I’m grateful for that.

    I’m curious if you were ever planning on adding to HTRYN course? The demo novel really helped cement some of the lessons, just as the walkthrough for HTTS gave a visual on some more harder to understand concepts.

    Thank you again for all your hard work. Looking forward to Create a World clinic and more from Cady!

    D’oh! OK, what can be learned from this? Is it possible to write the announcement way ahead of time and have a robot post it for you at a specified time? I know that there are Twitter utilities that will do something similar for Twitter.

    BTW, the long copy you wrote for HTTS Ultra was wasted on me, since I just scrolled to the bottom and signed up without reading it :p

      😀 And thank you for joining.

      Many of the folks who bought, on the other hand, read the whole thing.

      And folks who find it through Google and who don’t know me from Adam’s second cousin once removed on his mother’s side are only going to have that letter to introduce me, the course, and how it can help them.

      It’s a long letter, I agree. But I have to cover all eventualities.

      I DID add a quick link to the very top of the page as a courtesy to the folks like you who already know they want it. Sorry it wasn’t there when you bought.

    You had plenty of people announcing it on their blogs for you. You’re covered. 🙂

    • Holly Mar 14, 2013 @ 7:17

      I seriously appreciate that, too.

    Nothing lame. It happens I’m surprised I can remember what day it is myself. So It happens to the best of us.

    • Holly Mar 14, 2013 @ 7:22

      😀 It does. And I am so not at my best after 27 hours awake and working. Especially when, at the end of that, I slept one hour (I thought it was two, but Matt said it was only one) and got up and worked another sixteen.
