Here’s the thing.
Without a killer lead magnet, it’s going to be hard to grow that list.
Without a product, it’s going to be even harder to make money.
It takes a ton of time to grow a blog.
If you want ad revenue you need the pageviews (a lot of them)
If you want the sponsored opportunities you need the engaged following, and again-- the pageviews!
My first attempt of blogging was a whirlwind of frustration. Chasing pageviews just so I could make a few cents. Emailing brands just to hear “no” over and over.
I tried-- and failed-- at affiliate marketing, and I was burnt out.
My business was not going the way I thought it was going to go. Pinterest made blogging seem to easy! 🤷♀️
So when I started Simplifying DIY Design, I knew it was going to be different. I was going to focus on the things I had control over. I was going to make this happen for myself.
I was going to grow my email list as fast as humanly possible and as soon as I hit 1k subscribers I was going to launch my first product.
I had a plan.
I had the determination.
Since I had done this before, I figured it would be the same old story of fighting for every single subscriber. I set up a tripwire right away so that I at least had a chance of making money while I grew my list.
My email list hit 1k before my 4th month and it was at 2k by my 6th month when I launched my first digital product (which earned $10,943 in 7 days). I had made over $20k with my 6 month old blog.
Because I had the strategy.
Because I had the lead magnets and the products.
I was actually starting to hit those crazy stretch goals that I was so afraid to say outloud.
And you can too!
You just need the right tools. And I get it, design is hard.
You got into blogging because you love to write. You don’t have a graphic design background and that’s okay. You don’t need to be a graphic designer (or pay a graphic designer) to make your own lead magnets and products. Here’s what you need:

You’ve got the templates. Now what? Don’t worry, I’m not gonna drop you just like that!
I want to show you exactly how can you make each one of these templates match your brand perfectly. Afterall, I’m a huge fan of brand cohesiveness!
So I’m going to walk you through it. Most of them are self explanatory, but others you may want that extra help with. Either way, I want you to have ALL the tools you need to make this work for you.
This is it… it’s time to make this happen for you.
You’ve got the blog..
Your lead magnet is designed, your product is created and it is stunning.
But now what? What’s the strategy behind actually getting these designs to grow your blog?
How can you implement these designs in a way that is going to make you money on autopilot?
I don’t expect you to figure it out for yourself. Who's got time for that?
That’s like assuming you actually have time to drink your coffee while it’s still hot.
Yeah right. 🤷♀️
Don’t worry. I got you.
I know your short on time-- these templates are meant to jumpstart the design process saving you a TON of time.
Most of the work is already done for you.
Designed specifically for bloggers.
Designed to convert.
It’s a jumping off point. You just need to fill in your brilliant content and change the colors to match your brand.
Simple as that.
Just ask Lizann who says, “I love your templates and your Canva tutorials. Images and design were one of the weaknesses that held me back from blogging at first, but your models were easy to adapt to my brand so I could create a great new deployment guide for military spouses!”
Or Amanda who says, “When it comes to making graphics the hardest part for me is starting with a blank page. Kara’s templates are a life saver. They give you a starting point to jump off from. And then once I get started the ideas start flowing and I create beautiful products I could have only dreamed about.”
Are you ready?
Let’s jump in!
