Newsletter 14th October 2022: Design your life 💖 & free canva template bundle worth $200 +

by | Newsletters


When you think about your ideal business, what are you doing on a day-to-day basis?

What kind of life do you have?

When I think about my ideal, I’m working in the morning, meeting with my team on zoom, designing, and writing.

And then in the afternoon I’m playing with art and craft stuff, taking the dog for a walk, and planning strategy and next steps.

With maybe a few zoom calls in the evening, because that’s when they happen if you’re on this side of the Atlantic pond.

I’d take weekends off, apart from a training course or two (because I love learning!)

But at the moment, my life is nothing like that.

I’m having fun and enjoying building my business but definitely working too many hours. 🤔

We were chatting on a zoom call yesterday about this (Melody’s Kitchen Sink call), and in the course of that discussion I realized that my goal for the next few years should be to work towards my ideal and not just to grow my business at any cost and without considering the kind of life it would mean.

What kind of life and business are you working towards?

It’s as important to plan the way your business will fit into your life as it is to design your products and plan your marketing strategies! 💖

create printables in affinity

Catherine Beebe of Printables Academy is celebrating the first anniversary of her Create Printables in Affinity training this month.

mockup promo 2

Most of us, whether we realize it or not, buy with our eyes.

So, the product that is beautifully presented sells more than the one that isn’t.

For printables and other digital products, that means mockups that catch the eye and put our products in the best light.

It means customers click the buy button without moving onto the next product that catches their eye.

Mitzy has come out with a fantastic new course on mockups that could make all the difference between selling and not selling.

At the low launch price, Mockup Profit Multiplier is a no brainer.

But don’t hang around because that price disappears at the end of today. 

I’ve been through the course myself and thoroughly recommend it.

If you’re not selling as many as you’d hoped, it could be that you have a design issue and not even know it.

The problem may be that your course, printable, or planner has to compete with all products designed by professional graphic designers.

And if it doesn’t look the part, buyers will pass right on by, even if your same-price offer has better content!

Unfair, but true.

As a non-designer, it’s often in selecting fonts and laying out text where mistakes are made.

But you can level the playing field and compete with the best very quickly by using the principles and tips you’ll discover in my new course.

course white background 1280 by 960

No need to take a diploma in graphic design or hire an expensive graphic designer to raise your game.

One hour is all you need!

Launch price just $27

Get more details here:

Note: We start with fonts as this is where most mistakes are made, but buyers will also have the opportunity to get One Hour Graphics at an even lower price which will cover use of images in a design.
