Newsletter 18th October 2022: Getting the unimportant stuff done 🤣 & something special for affinity fans

by | Newsletters


I have this tendency to put off doing important things until the very last minute.

But it’s handy in a funny kind of way because it means that all kinds of tasks get done that would never normally reach the top of my priority list.

This week I’ve avoided my deadline task and:

▶️ sorted through a whole boxful of recipes clipped from magazines (twenty years’ worth) and got rid of most of the box
▶️ ordered new sofa covers because Alfie chewed the old ones when he was a pup (he is now two!)
▶️ backed up my downloads folder
▶️ called my accountant to chase up my annual accounts

All useful stuff but I should’ve been writing a sales letter!

Still, I did all that and then (because I had a firm deadline) I got the sales letter finished with two hours to spare.

That’s what I call a result! 🤣

If you have a lot of tasks that have been hanging around forever on your To Do list, see if committing to a deadline for something else will help shift them.

Human brains never cease to amaze me.  💖



Cool Blue Affinity Digital Planner

If you always wanted to make a fully dated planner in Affinity Publisher but only had templates for Powerpoint or Keynote, help is at hand.

A few months ago, my friend Jayne and I launched a course to show you how to transfer a printable PDF template to Affinity.

(You can see that course “To Affinity & Beyond” here if you missed it.)

While the techniques are great for printables, they don’t work for digital planner templates as the links don’t carry over.

It’s all right if you have to recreate one or two links but dated fully-linked planners have thousands of the things.

These templates have to be made from scratch.

So, I kicked off a project to do just that, and now it’s ready: a fully-dated 2023 digital planner template for Affinity Publisher with hundreds of pages and thousands of links.

Along with the template you’ll find a 41-page manual with step-by-step instructions for changing your planner (if you wish) so that you can easily create something unique to sell.

Just $27 for both template and instructions during the launch (ends midnight 25th)

There is also a chance to scoop up another done-for-you design at checkout at $9.95 but no other upsells.

Save weeks of work and learning how to do this and stock your shop with gorgeous and highly functional digital planners made in Affinity Publisher!

If you’re not selling as many digital products 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.
