Are you an A or B student that wants more time to enjoy life while scoring top-of-the class high – even if you’re a bad test taker?
A smart reader just presented Kay (and she presented me) with quite an interesting pickle that needs a little untangling!
ESL Clarification: Pickle is a fun way to say… conundrum… Get it? Of course not, I’m just making it more confusing. Attempt #2: When someone is having a problem, they might refer to the problem as being “in a pickle.” Don’t ask me why we say it (or how we got inside of the pickle.)
I’m in a pickle right now.
The problem is related to:
Smart Student Secrets is cleaning our email lists (and unsubscribing lots of readers) based on whether or not our analytics say they’re interested in our emails.
That’s important because:
1. We don’t like packing the inboxes of uninterested readers.
2. Email clients are less likely to mark us as spam if we send fewer emails (but basically any small company has the problem of being marked as spam.)
3. Sending emails costs us… the more we send… the more we need advertising or sales to survive.
But the interesting problem presented:
Some readers signed up using their school email. Some are on summer break and never checking their email…
So they don’t have much activity but they may still want to read our stuff when the school year starts back up.
So we’re currently discussing solutions:
Important: if this is relevant to you, or you think it’s relevant to someone you know, then please reply and let us know.
Some potential solutions (and we’d love to hear your thoughts on them:)
1. We temporarily stop sending emails to readers that stop participating (like over summer break.) Then we send a message to them later on where they can confirm they’re checking their emails regularly and put them back on full emails.
2. We upgrade our members-only content to include virtually the exact same content as the email list, that way members don’t need to be subscribed to our email list to read everything. (We’ve been hoping to get a little message board up too.)
3. What ideas are you thinking of? We would love to hear them.
In other news:
I just got a new review of KAIC that makes me super happy. In particular, I love the fact that it wasn’t all lubby dubby. It was the good stuff he liked. Then it was some stuff to improve on. That’s the stuff that makes our stuff good – the feedback from you beautiful folks. I’m going to be sending a private little reward for that review. The reader was generous enough to let me share their first name and photo with the review. I’ll be plopping in somewhere for reading soon.
Reviews are gold. I always appreciate them.
And your opinion on these things is like… super gold or something…
Okay… my creative bone is on the fritz. I’m going to hang up the email now. 😛
MAYBE THEY WON’T NOTICE…
I’m not going to get in trouble again, am I?
Here is the story:
I’m the originator of the 15 Minute Study Strategy – proving you only need 15 minutes of studying each night to academically dominate MOST academic institutions. You may have heard someone talking about it – and it’s easy to be skeptical I get.
It’s a crazy fact that most academics don’t want you to know. And for good reason…
This strategy completely obliterates their systems.
Student’s are supposed to struggle through school. School starts as a training/education tool (around gradeschool.)
As you grow up, it becomes a weeding out mechanism. It’s a system that rewards people for: obedience, hours of work, and unhappy type a’s.
And it’s meant to punish students that are: intellectually curious, motivated, and genuinely smart people.
My strategies BLOWS everything they built apart and it rewards students for smart actions.
It’s not the hours invested as much as it’s the things you do. If you do these things – you’ll get killer grades.
(And that’s why they hate me. Its proves everything they’re doing is wrong – and it forces them to address the truth… Or continue to pretend otherwise despite the overwhelming and increasingly humiliating evidence.)
Are you ready for this?
Let me send you some emails – it’s important we take this one step at a time.
