Brainstorm holiday printables
As we said earlier, there are many directions you can take with your holiday printables.
First, we want you to think of:
- Your niche
- Your avatar
What are they struggling with? What do they desperately need help with?
What are they already working on?
These are all the things we think of when trying to help someone leverage holiday traffic.

The traffic, the list-building opportunities, the income possibilities; all of it can be amplified in the fourth quarter for maximum sales and subscribers.
While we always encourage out-of-the-box thinking, that may not always work for holiday printables.
Absolutely put your own spin on it, but use your audience’s feedback to your benefit.
Survey them in an email. Camp out in a Facebook group (or two) where your audience loves to hang out. See what kinds of questions they’re engaging with and what seems to be their biggest hang-ups this time of year.
Your readers desperately want solutions. If they know someone is willing to listen, they’ll be your biggest source of information!
Generally, the fitness niche is NOT great in the fourth quarter.
People have ditched their diets in favor of turkey and pies. They’re way too busy to keep up with an exercise routine.
And let’s not forget the procrastinators that will “make it up with their New Years’ Resolution.”
However, this is still an opportunity because you’ll use this as a quarter to bump your list so you can sell that fitness routine and diet plan come January.
Our Holiday Template Toolkit is the perfect resource to upgrade your seasonal content and leverage the holidays for maximum blog traffic and email sign-ups!
The best part? They’ll be extra ready for it because you’re targeting people that are slipping from their everyday fitness goals.
Holiday printables for the fitness niche:
- 10-Minute Workout Routines
- Healthy Food Swaps To Make During the Holiday Season
- 7 Ways to Stay on Track During the Holidays
- Gift Guide for the Health Nut
Take those pain points that the holidays created and leverage them to boost your email list.

Think of your products and email marketing funnels and work backward. Strategically plan how each and every single email sign-up can be scaled.
Start simple. Strategic doesn’t mean complicated!
Niche: Online Business / Blogging
We can confidently say that quarter four is our most profitable time of the year.
Bloggers love to start the new year with new systems, products, planners, tools, the works.
But before that, they want to prepare their own business for quarter four.
They’re finishing up their products, writing holiday content, designing seasonal lead magnets, finalizing email funnels…
Needless to say, bloggers are pretty darn busy!

However, bloggers are busy for a very specific reason – to maximize their Q4 sales to provide for their families. Their blog, their business is their livelihood!
They want printables that will help propel their business to new heights, just in time for the new year.
Holiday printables for the business niche:
- Holiday Content Planner
- Quarterly Goal Planner
- Holiday Traffic Spreadsheet
- Gift Guide for the Course Hoarder
Like the parenting niche, bloggers will happily pay for add-ons in the form of tripwires and products if their ROI is clearly defined.
The most profitable category for bloggers this time of year is hands down, goal-setting. ALL bloggers are planning and mapping out those big, scary goals, so they have a plan of action come January 1st.
While not every blogging niche will have holiday content/traffic to track or even a “problem” with hoarding courses, any blogger can benefit from goal planning!
Common themes for holiday printables
If you’re still in the brainstorming phase, no worries! Start with the basics of a printable.
What’s a printable generally categorized as?
- Gift Guide
Any printer-friendly document can be considered a printable. Remember the word PRINT.
We’ve had so many bloggers come to us and ask why their printables aren’t converting. The very first thing we check is the overall design and balance of white space.
Printables are meant to be printed!
Too much color deters people from printing because even in grayscale, it’ll use so much ink, which costs your readers money.

Not only that, heavy, overly-saturated documents are less likely to be downloaded, let alone printed.
This is just one holiday printable in our Holiday Content Template Toolkit. Notice our use of white space? It’s a beautiful balance of white, content, and color – perfect for online use or print-outs!
