It’s a pretty grey day here in Central Ontario. As far as I know we’re under a severe weather warning for high winds and rain for most of the day. As long as it all goes away by tomorrow morning I’m okay with whatever shows up. But Mother Nature better not mess with my golf date tomorrow!
Here’s what I have for you this morning…
Bonuses Are Back!
I’ve decided, since we’re getting into the holiday season, to bring the “Choose Your Own Bonus” page back for the rest of this year. I’ll be adding a few new things to the existing page over the next few days for you to choose from.
The biggest change is the delivery method. I’ve done away with the form, so you’ll have to email me your receipts along with your choice(s) and I’ll send you the direct download links.
Since I’m working on moving the PLR shop to a new domain over the next few months, this will make it easier on me with a little less to move.
Here’s the existing page: Ruthie’s Choose Your Own Bonus Page
Products That Qualify For Bonuses This Week (Quick Links)
- Mitzy Thompson – Mockup Profit Multiplier
- Cindy Bidar – Sales Pages That Convert (today only)
- Catherine – Create Printables in Affinity
- Catherine – Affinity Course Bundle
- Jenn – Planning Addicts – Holiday Printables Kit
- (more coming as I update the list)
Top Picks This Week
Pick #1 – New Training: Mockup Profit Multiplier by Mitzy is her newest training. In this course she’s going to teach you the best ways to create mockups and how you can use them to sell more of your printables. I bought the course earlier today, but haven’t had a chance to go through it yet. Although if it’s even half as good as her first course earlier this year, it will definitely be worth the low launch price.
The course includes 7 video training lessons, 14 printable worksheets, 7 over the shoulder videos, Canva templates, and more. It’s on sale for only $19.95 through Friday, October 14.
Pick #2 – Cindy’s Business Builder Specials Event is On Now!
Every year Cindy Bidar runs her annual Business Builder Specials event. This is where you can pick up a different course or toolkit at a 50% discount every day from today through October 21. Use code October22 to claim your savings.
Today’s deal is: Sales Pages That Convert. Most people I know – including me! – destest writing sales pages, so I consider this a must-have training. By the time you’re done, you’ll know
- Exactly who your buyer is, what she most wants from you, and how your product or service is checks all the boxes on her wish list.
- How to create a sales page that reads like the story of her life, so that her only option is to click the buy button.
- Conversion-killing sales page elements to avoid (including the ones that seem like a good idea, but that don’t really do you any favors).
- How to close sales like a pro, even if you think you hate to sell.
Pick #3 – Affinity Training on Sale! Catherine is celebrating the first anniversary of her flagship Create Printables in Affinity training through the month of October. You can choose from either the single course or the Affinity Course Bundle and save $30 with code ANNIVERSARY.
The bundle includes 4 courses:
- Affinity Publisher Basics
- Affinity Designer Basics
- Using Affinity Publisher for Low Content Books
- Create Printables in Affinity
Catherine is my go-to person for all things Affinity, and I have all of these courses (and have used them!)

Today’s Read: 8 Tips for Using Social Media to Gather More New Content Ideas
When you’re looking for more new content ideas, social media can be a goldmine. Social media is all about having conversations and sharing information, brining like-minded people together. If you’re looking for your audience, you can usually find them and by extension the content they’re interested in by combing through your social media platforms.
Here are 8 tips for using social media to gather more new content ideas:
Tip #1: Use Twitter Search
Twitter is a social media network that enables finding breaking news and timely stories easier. When you use their search function, you can easily find tweets related to any topic or keyword you’re interested in. After you enter your search term into the search bar you should see a list of relevant tweets in real-time. And, you can also filter your results by location, language, and other criteria.
That’s it for me this morning. I’m off to find some breakfast and see how much work I can get done today, since I won’t be doing much at all tomorrow!
Have an amazing day/evening! Create what makes your heart happy!
