Here’s my personal evolving list of favorite products and tools that help me rock my business – in no particular order
Some resources are free/some are paid and, of course I’m an affiliate for them if they have an affiliate program. I do appreciate anyone who buys through my affiliate link. It costs you nothing extra, and helps me to continue to find useful products for everyone. You can be sure that I never promote anything I don’t love.
ConvertKit – This is a fairly new kid on the block, and if you’re ready to take your emails to the next level, ConvertKit may be the answer. It’s $29/mo for up to 1,000 subscribers, and while a little more expensive than Aweber, it really does a lot with landing pages, segmenting subscribers, resending to unopens, and a whole lot more.
ConvertKit is designed to make email marketing automation easy.
AWEBER – I’ve tried a few different email marketing providers, but find Aweber is the most user-friendly and has a ton of resources and templates to help you get up and running.
This is the one I used for quite a few years and still encourage clients to use if you just want a simple email automation system. You also get to take it for a spin for a month for free.
ELEMENTOR – This is the world’s leading wordpress page builder – and with good reason.
I started using this plugin in 2019 when I started a site redesign and now, can’t imagine not using it, it’s that good. Drag and drop simple.
I LOVE that they have a free version to get your feet wet and if you’re like me, you’ll end up liking it so well you’ll buy the pro version.
NAMECHEAP – My current favorite for purchasing a domain name. Cheap, simple. Yes, yes, I know – everybody hears about GoDaddy. Well, they used to be my go to, but they’re just getting so much into upsells if all you want is to register a domain name that they’ve pissed me off. Too much work. Much prefer Namecheap.
ACUITY SCHEDULING – This is a great scheduling tool. The calendar embeds in your website and you can accept payments, block times you’re available. Works great. They have a free plan, but it’s so restricted that, in my opinion, not worth the bother. Definitely go with the paid one to use all the features. Worth it.
