Welcome to My Resource Library!
Okay so maybe Soduko isn’t technically a resource, but I will say it’s a fantastic tool to stretch your brain and teach it to spot gaps faster!
In all seriousness, though, here are some of the resources I myself use to streamline my business, ensure consistent growth, and (of course) make money!
I will say that some of those listed below are affiliate links, which means I might profit should click through and make a purchase. That said, again these are all things I myself have invested in, so you can trust I’d recommend them even if I weren’t an affiliate!
Free Resources from Yours Truly
Tools for Getting Started:
Building Your Website:
Buying Your Domain: NameCheap – suuuuper easy to use and most domains are around $10
Hosting: Siteground – they’re reliable, trustworthy, and have never disappointed me when I’ve needed assistance. Top notch customer service!
Theme: Elegant Themes – I use Divi to build all of my websites (I have five – I’m ridiculous, I know) and I recommend it to all of my clients. I love how easy it makes customization!
Education: Udemy – Udemy is great to help you find affordable e-courses on what you need to learn to move forward in your business/blog. They often have flash sales on courses for an incredibly afforable rate.
Canva – Canva is a fabulous platform that makes designing easy, even for beginners! It has a free version with design templates you can customize to fit your brand or you can start completely from scratch.
Stencil – Stencil makes image creation incredibly easy! If you’re not at all comfortable with graphic design or want a different set of templates and stock photos to choose from, definitely give Stencil a go.
Affiliate Marketing Platforms:
Share-A-Sale – I’ve been using this platform for years and I *LOVE* it. They’re my go-to resource for almost every affiliate I’m a part of!
Grammarly – Whether you’re writing blog posts, e-mails, or sharing to social media, it’s important that your audience not be distracted by your grammar or spelling mistakes! Use Grammarly to ensure your copy communicates what it’s meant to.
Grow by Mediavine – This is what I use as my sharing plug-in. I love that you can set custom image sizes so that goes out on Pinterest isn’t the same image going out on Facebook.
Tailwind – I’ve used Tailwind for both Pinterest and Instagram. It’s incredibly easy to use, brings in great results, and their customer service team is top notch!
Meet Edgar – Good ol’ Edgar let’s you organize your social media posts into a searchable library, allowing for recycling your best content with ease.
Later – Later is wonderful for Instagram! I love the grid preview and again it’s very user-friendly. Oh and did I mention it’s free?
ConvertKit – I absolutely LOVE ConvertKit for my e-mail marketing. It allows you so much freedom in targeting exactly who you mean to target when you mean to target them. As someone who lives for organization, ConvertKit helps me keep everything streamlined and running smoothly. ConvertKit is a must-have.
Mailerlite – Mailerlite is a good option for those who need to go the free route for now. It’s fairly straightforward to use and is great for those just starting out.
Online Course Creation:
Podia – I use Podia for my course creation – such as Purpose, Planning, & Profits – and I love it. As many other platforms I recommend, it’s easy to use and covers all the bases needed when creating an online course. I also love that I can e-mail my students, track the stats there, and that they have the option to “message” me with ease.
ScreenCastomatic – Record your screen, yourself, or both with ScreenCastomatic! At its price point, it truly cannot be beat. You can also add music, narration, and edit your videos. I’ve used it since 2016 and it’s fantastic!
Selling Digital Products:
Gumroad – Gumroad is the go-to platform if you’re looking to sell digital products like pin templates, e-books, workbooks, etc. It’s quick and easy to set up, payout happens directly to your bank account, you can have affiliates, and it’s very affordable!
