Why You Need SPMS, or (How to Become the BEST CouchHustler EVER!)

Life can lead you to such interesting places. I am always up for a new adventure and seeing what is just around the corner...except when it comes to meeting new people. I am not good at it. In fact, I'm pretty horrible. But, last April I decided to step out of my comfort zone and attend a TpT Meet-Up in Rochester, NY. It was not what I expected. It was much more.

While sipping wine during the Friday Night mixer I happened to stand next to a friendly redhead with a southern twang. We chatted about wine, weather, and weekend getaways. But, not one word about work. Little did I know the genius within the woman chatting with me. The next day I decided to switch my last block at the conference and attend her session about Smartphone Marketing. I figured that even if I didn't learn anything ground-breaking, at least my final block of the day would be spent with a person whose company I enjoy. My life will never be the same.

That wine-sipping genius was Tabitha Carro of Smartphone Marketing School. And you need her course. Let me tell you why...

#1 It will save you money. A lot of money.
Tabitha's course will teach you everything you need to know about marketing your business with using just your iPhone, some apps, and a few accessories. Forget about fancy, expensive (and often clunky) equipment. You won't need them. Your iPhone has a treasure trove of goodies just waiting to be used. Tabitha will teach you where to find them and how to use them.

For less than $100 you can buy and create the space and equipment needed (in the comforts of your own home) to market your business.
 

#2 It will save you time.
I don't have hours and hours to fiddle around with multiple devices in order to create a promo for social media or cover art for my resources. I have learned how to do it all from the convenience of my iPhone. A few shots on my phone, a bit of Couch Hustling, and my graphics and videos are ready to publish. 

I have been know to hustle while my husband drives, while sitting on benches at trampoline parks and lacrosse practices, and even once at a dance recital (I promise my daughter wasn't actually dancing at that moment). The point is: with the knowledge I have gained, and the capabilities of my smartphone, I have been able to take small snip-its of time and create ads, covers, and promos to further my business. It's that easy and convenient. By the time I am sitting back in front of my computer I can concentrate on creating content because the promo stuff is done!


If you're looking for apps that can help with graphics and animations, look no further than Smartphone Marketing School. Tabitha has found them, tested them, and created tutorials to teach you how to use them. She has already done the toughest part: finding the right apps.

Additionally, Tabitha sets you up to optimize the use of your phone. Tiny tips such as "text replacement" will save you tons of time when using your phone. If nothing else, you'll never have to write out your email address again. It can auto fill with a keystroke or two! 

#3 It is 100% portable.
Right from the start you will be able to complete this course with just your iPhone. Have a few minutes to spare at the doctor's office or during lunch? Use that time to your advantage and watch the next section of course work. In 2-5 minutes you will have learned a new or improved way to promote your work. And if you're anything like me, you will get to the Couch Hustlin' right away. What's even better is that you can refer back to the courses if you can't remember a step or two. How convenient is that? Everything you need in the palm of your hand. All the time.

Through this course I have learned to create graphics:


As well as videos, movies, and gifs:


Everything you see has been made with just my iPhone. And at this point I haven't even finished all the coursework yet!

I have also been able to take what I have learned from this amazing course and improve my product covers:

(I updated the covers within the cover, too!)

I am happy I attended that conference. I am happier that I attended the mixer and met Tabitha. And, I am happiest that I stumbled into her Smartphone Marketing Session. I love this new adventure I have begun. And it's all because a friendly redhead struck up a conversation with me about wine. 

And so, Tabitha Carro, I tip my glass to you!
