Tailwind, if you didn't know, is a Pinterest pin scheduler. You upload pins and tell it when to post them and you are done. This is how so many bloggers look active on Pinterest, but they actually just spent maybe an hour or two per week setting up all the pins they want to go out and enjoy their free time. Saving themselves so much labor. Get a free trial and $15 off if you choose to join at $9.99, by using my link here.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing

This course is great! It doesn’t matter how much you already think you know about affiliate marketing, there is still a ton of information for you to learn. Plus upon enrolling, you get to be added to an exclusive Facebook group for other people who’ve taken this course.

I found the information in this course to be so easy to digest that I not only used the worksheets Michelle provided, but I also filled out 3 notebook pages of my own AND finished reading all 7 modules of material (over 100 pages) in one afternoon. *Of course I still plan to go back and reread it from time to time.

Email Templates

I’m a naturally introverted and socially awkward person in real life. I have a hard time trying to start conversations with just about anybody that I don’t really know. I’m the quite person in a crowded room that finds the nearest fluffy animal to dote on.

So as a blogger, emailing my subscribers is the HARDEST thing I have to do. I don’t know how to start a good conversation without coming off sounds pushy, slimy or clingy.

So I signed up for some free email templates, which lead to me then buying a 101 email template course. Customizing them to myself and my blog has been really easy.

The templates are “fill in the blank” style, but for the most part I just rewrite everything in my own words, or go off track, because I’m a rambler. But regardless, having these templates has helped me to write some great emails for my subscribers that I don’t think I could have done without them.

These are NOT affiliate links.
