It’s shaping up to be a hot and humid weekend here in Central Ontario. I’m very grateful we’ve had a reprieve for a few days because it’s so much more enjoyable to have the windows open and feel a breeze than to just rely on the air conditioner.
Before we get to today’s goodies, I have to say a big thanks to the customer who alerted me that the link to Melanie’s 100 Canva Templates on sale this week wasn’t working. I’ve fixed that now, and you can check them out here: 100 Canva Templates
There’s a whole lot going on in the self-publishing and printables world this week. It seems like everyone is gearing up for Q4 and I have to admit, I’m no different.
It’s the main reason I put the Stock Your Shop Workshops on sale this week, so that you can get a jumpstart on your Q4 too. And it occurred to me this morning, that this is the first time I’ve ever offered these for sale to the general public. The Positive Prints version was created as a bonus for an affiliate promotion, and the Mandala version and the Digital Papers version were created for bundles and never put into the store before now.
And as I mentioned in yesterday’s newsletter, I’m really excited to share these with you because this is my favourite type of course/workshop to create. I essentially get to play with content, and share how I’m repurposing things with you.
The workshop recordings are on sale this week through August 10, for only $10 each. Or you can buy them in a bundle of all three for only $27.
And now, here’s what I have for you today…

Today’s Read: Knowing Your Audience: Why It’s Important
Knowing your audience is the place to start in building your content strategy (and your list, and your products, and… and…). When combined with your content goals, it becomes the foundation for your entire content strategy. Because everything you do from here on in, will be determined by the goals you define for your content and the people you create that content for.
In marketing terms, the audience you define as your ideal becomes your target audience. While I’m not crazy about the terminology, knowing who you want to engage or sell to is a cornerstone of the foundation upon which you are building your business. And that means it’s also a cornerstone for your content strategy.
It’s crucial that you get this right.
(And no, you probably will not get it exactly right the first time. It often takes some testing and tweaking as you begin knowing your audience.)
Before we get to how you define your ideal audience, let’s look at why it’s so important to do this…
That’s it for me today. I’m off to grab some dinner and watch the lightning show out my window. We are having a heck of a thunderstorm right now and I love it!
Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy!
See you tomorrow!
