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.
KARTRA – I love, love, love Kartra. It’s a complete email, marketing, funnel building, course delivery, statistic spewing, bundle of awesomeness.
Even better, it’s drag and drop.
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.
SITEGROUND HOSTING – I just switched to Siteground in the middle of 2019 and I’m SUPER happy with them.
Their support is great, they’re reasonably priced and their site speed is much better than I’ve had with a few other hosts.
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.
