Resources

I get asked a lot of technical questions on a daily basis. People usually want to know what to use for hosting, or sending out newsletters, or even creating super dope graphics for their sites and social media accounts.

As a result, I’ve put together a list of resources that I’ve either personally used ….. daily.

Oh and by the way…This page contains affiliate links which means that I may get a commission if you decide to purchase anything from a certain company. I will add to these lists as I come across new solutions.

Here are all of the tools that I use to run my business:

 

WordPress Plugins & Themes

WP Rocket

Speed up your WordPress website and improve page loading times. I use this plugin to ensure that my clients sites are fast and optimized. 

If you’re looking for an easy to use theme builder, Divi is one of the best. The Drag & Drop builder makes it easy to design beautiful websites. No need for coding necessary. 99% of the sites that I design are built with Divi.

 

Create custom WordPress Forms and more in no time. 

Make your life easier by installing my go to Google Analytics  plugin. It’s easy to install and set up !

Hosting

BlueHost

I personally host some of my sites through BlueHost. You should start with only what you need at first, then upgrade as your website grows. So you can start small, then once you grow they will notify you when you need to upgrade. You only use what you need. Plus you get a FREE domain name with any hosting plan. They are the best and least expensive way to get your online business website started.

For my clients that need a  managed WordPress solution for their WordPress site, I recommend Flywheel The great thing about Flywheel is that they make sure your site is secure from hackers. They also handle nightly backups and a free SSL certificate.

 

GRAPHIC DESIGN RESOURCES

CANVA

Even though I have PhotoShop experience, I still use Canva on a day to day basis . With Canva, I can create graphics for web projects, social media posts , as well as email graphics. It’s east to use and has plenty of templates available to help you create professional graphics.

Email Resources

Google WorkSpace

I discovered the power of Google Workspace when I was assisting a client with migrating her site to a new host. I decided to sign up and so far I love it. It’s the perfect solution for not only hosting your email but also having access to a suite of apps that you can use to run your business.

Accounting Resources

QuickBooks

I personally use Quickbooks to organize my personal and business expenses. It makes it easy to get a clear picture of finances and get ready for tax season. 

Social Media/Email Marketing Resources

TailWind

Scheduling Instagram posts can be a little overwhelming at times. That’s why I decided to use Tailwind. Use this resource if you want a simple solution to make your Instagram posting and scheduling 10 times easier.

 

Mailchimp

When I want to create email newsletters and build an audience for my business, I prefer Mailchimp
