Content Blog Planner

I am super stoked and so happy to let you know that I have finalized, the long-awaited Content & Business Planner. Link for the combo (Planner and Canva).

You have heard the saying repeatedly: “Content is king.” Now, tell me, do you believe it? Well, you should, as it’s true.

So, how will this product help you? This Undated Content & Business Planner will guide and assist you to figure out and know what to post which month in order to get your seasonal and holiday posts out on time. As mentioned, it’s an undated planner, so you get this once and will never need another one as you can use this repeatedly, year after year.

But wait for it, while working on this Planner, and in the creating mode I wanted to add something that will assist you with your images when doing your posts, so I went ahead and compiled a second product for you.

You can now grab the second product: Canva for Every day, as a combo at an incredibly low intro rate, but be warned, unfortunately, I will not be able to keep it at the launch rate forever, so do come and check it out.

The link for this combo can be found in the first comment.
So what will you get in the Combo?

  1. Content & Business Planner. (Link for only Planner)
  2. Canva for Every Day (Link for only Canva)
  3. FREE BONUS at checkout, and at no extra cost, as a thank you for your support. (Only available on Combo).
    You will receive this directly in your email inbox so no mailman is involved, as it’s a download and will be emailed directly to your inbox and you can download it and get going immediately.


I wish to share with you an email I received from one of the bloggers, I am subscribed to. You may find this interesting and wish to take a look at this. Please note that I have not made use of this offer as yet, but will look into it Monday.

Please note, the links, mentioned below, are NOT my links, but that of Carla from Carla C Coaching Limited.

Hi Esmé,

When ManyChat approached me to try out their product I first wasn’t 100% sure if it would work for me.

After all, Instagram – and my approach on this platform – is all about authentic connection.
I’ve never automated likes, comments, or follows.

But I quickly learned that that’s not what ManyChat is all about.

1️⃣ ManyChat is an official Facebook partner, meaning it’s 100% safe to use and you won’t get punished for using it.

2️⃣ ManyChat is all about helping you generate leads and customers who want to get in touch with YOU (meaning it will never approach or spam any of your followers on your behalf)

3️⃣ You can set up complex automation, but you don’t need to. In literally less than 5 minutes I set up a simple 3-step “flow” that asks my followers to DM me a keyword (for example “viral”) in order to get access to a free gift.

Here’s what it looks like:

24 hours after launching my first flow, here’s what I’ve found: Within 24 hours, my automation was triggered over 100 times by followers who sent me the keyword “viral”.100% (!!) of the leads opened my DMs. If you know anything about opening rates, you know that this is UNHEARD of (industry standards for email open rates are between 20-30%, and even text message open rates don’t make it to 100%).67.3% clicked on the link to download the free Reels guide (to put this into perspective, if I get a click-through rate of 5-10% in my emails, I’m doing a happy dance).
Best of all?

Once I set up the automation and posted my Instagram post and stories promoting the freebie, I didn’t have to do ANYTHING else.

If you think about it, it would have taken me at least 30 seconds per follower to send the messages manually – meaning I just saved myself 60+ minutes AND my followers were happy because they didn’t have to wait to receive the link!

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty much blown away by these numbers and stats and I can’t wait to continue to test and learn more about this platform.

If you want to generate MORE leads and MORE sales in way LESS time, this is definitely worth testing out.

Until August 31st, ManyChat is offering a free 3-month trial on their pro account.

Check it out here.

As always, I’m here if you have any questions, just hit reply. 🙂

xo, Carla

P.S. I don’t ever promote Instagram tools unless I’ve tried and tested them myself. If you want to find a way to automate (part of) your Instagram strategy, make sure to sign up for the free 3-month ManyChat trial by August 31st

You will have to act fast if you wish to make use of this FREE offer by August 31st.

  1. THANK YOU for featuring my Crockpot BBQ Boneless BEEF SHORT RIBS last week! I hope you know that how many of us truly appreciate all the time and effort you put into your blogs & posts each week ~ so thank you for that too! Have a happy, healthy & bountiful Fall!

    • Dear Cindy. What an awesome and wonderful note to see first thing in the morning when I open up my blog comments. It’s so kind of you and I wish to thank you for taking the time to leave me this comment. I love doing this, and it’s a total pleasure to ‘help’ in a small way. My only desire and wish would be that we promote this weekly InLinkz to get more people to know that they can come and share (FREE) their own blogs and meet others. Thanks for your support, you’re a star!
