DIY Printables for Bloggers

You started your blog and have been working hard to create great content. You’ve been promoting your blog posts on social media. You’ve even joined Facebook groups dedicated to doing chore threads with the hopes that you’d find some people who are genuinely interested in your blog. But your blog traffic is still disappointingly low.

You keep hearing that the key to getting solid blog traffic is to get into people’s email inboxes. To do that, you need to build your mailing list. But you’re struggling to figure everything out.  

Perhaps you already have a list of opt-in freebie ideas written down and you just don’t know how to bring those ideas to life.

Maybe you are trying to decide which of the many email service providers you should use to build your list.

Or perhaps you already have a small list, but it’s growing at a snail’s pace.

You want to create an email opt-in that gets people excited to join your list. You just need help with the design and tech side of things.

If there is one thing I have learned over the years it’s that design and tech can cause bloggers to want to pull their hair out in frustration.

I totally get it!

As a self-taught web and graphic designer, I’ve definitely had my fair share of hair-pulling moments. Lol! That’s why I love to help other bloggers with those things. They come easily to me now and I know that I can help others learn enough to check off some of the big things on their to-do list.

I also know that most new bloggers don’t have a big budget for these things. You don’t have the money yet to hire someone to create your graphics or grow your list for you. You are in full DIY mode and need to learn how to handle the design and tech aspects of list-building on your own.

That’s why I created this course.

This course will help you design gorgeous opt-in printables for your niche, promote them across social media, and set everything up in your chosen email service provider so that you can start really building your mailing list- and your traffic.

The best part? I show you how to do it all with FREE and low cost software so that you can find the right option for your budget!

I've really enjoyed Monique's course, Diy Printables. It's organized, detailed and takes you through each step needed to create printables. I love that it's clear and divided into small chunks.

Monique's is very knowledgeable and she gives great tips and suggestions. If you're a beginner and want to create great opt-ins using Powerpoint, then I'd highly recommend DIY Printables.  It's also a great refresher course for intermediate users.
