Welcome to Coffee Powered Systems, equipping women with actionable steps to overcome, overwhelm and streamline business and life. So grab your favorite drink and come hang out with me. I'm your host, Miranda Merten. Welcome back to Coffee Powered Systems. Today is Tip Tuesday, where I give you the skinny on an app or a tool that could be useful for your personal productivity. For the past week I have been talking to you about creating a content workflow to help you be more consistent and productive.


Part of creating a consistent workflow includes having templates whenever they are necessary, and one of my favorite template shops is relaunching her brand and her website. And I have been a part of it for the last year since she first launched. And it is Basil and Bark from her website. It says Never designed another worksheet, graphic or slide deck again. The thing I love about Basil and Bark is that their templates are super cute, yet simple enough to work with any online business.


They're fully customizable, which means you can change the thoughts, colors, whatever you need to match your brand. And she gives them in multiple formats like Canva, Affinity, Photoshop so that you can design in whatever format you like best. Now templates include things like social media, graphics, webinar decks, client welcome kits, brand boards, so much more stuff. She also has bonus material like spreadsheets for financial planning and content marketing, and she adds new templates each month.


Now you can purchase templates as needed within her shop for thirty seven dollars or less, depending on which template you're looking for. But she also does have a lifetime membership and during her relaunch it's priced at only two hundred and thirty seven dollars. That price is going to give you access to all of the future updates and every new template that she puts out. So you don't have to worry about yearly renewals or missing out on any of the templates. In my opinion, whenever you come across a lifetime deal that low, if you can afford it, go ahead and snatch it up so you don't miss out on that awesome price.


So like I said before, I've been a member for the last year, and every time I log in, I find templates that work for whatever I'm working on at that moment. My most recent thing that I downloaded and worked on was a online course workbook and it saved me so much time using her templates rather than creating it from scratch. So definitely you want to go ahead and check out Basil and Bark. I will drop the link for you down in the show notes or you can find them at mirandamerten.com/61
