Looking for beautiful, free photos?
Unsplash is always my first stop. There are tons of gorgeous photos that you’re allowed to use for personal and commercial purposes and edit all you like under a Creative Commons License. FancyCrave and Pexels are more great options.
Need help staying organized?
Evernote has been a blessing in my business. I love it and use it with the majority of my clients. You can use it on your phone, on the web or download the desktop version to keep track of ideas that spring into your head, to share information with others, and keep track of important information.
Want to rock email marketing?
ConvertKit, it is! I actually get excited when I find out my clients use ConvertKit. This is the best tool for creating sales funnels and effective email campaigns. You can also create landing pages and opt-in pop-up’s on your website. This program is different from its competitors because it’s subscriber-centric rather than list-centric, meaning you’ll only pay once if you have a subscriber on several different mailing lists.
Are you tracking time worked & invoicing clients?
I seriously love Freshbooks! The new version of this program is an essential for my business. I track all time worked and am able to easily transfer it to my invoices. You can also track all your expenses and generate useful reports for tax time.
Are you creating courses & products?
Kajabi is going to be your best friend! It’s a super clean and user-friendly course delivery platform and place to house your products. It’s awesome for both instructors and students (I’ve been on both ends). Save 15% when you use this link!
Want to learn about affiliate marketing?
House of Brazen‘s training “How to Make Your First Affiliate Sale in 24 Hours” is the place to learn it!
Need a great social media scheduling tool?
Meet Edgar is my absolute favourite tool for this. While you can schedule posts for free using programs like Hootsuite, Edgar is unique and saves a ton of time. No more scheduling posts one by one. Instead, you create categories and schedule those categories, and the posts cycle through continuously.
Want to boost blog traffic by using Pinterest?
BoardBooster is an awesome tool to help you do that! I’m hooked. This awesome tool posts to your boards for you on a consistent basis, meaning you show up more on Pinterest feeds and get more attention.
Do you need a beautiful theme for your WordPress site?
Coded Creative has gorgeous themes at good prices. That’s where I got my website template. They work on the Genesis framework which comes with the purchase of your theme and is great if you have a little website-building experience.
