Resources & Tools
Please check back every few months as I update this list with new Tools and Resources.
Your Own Website
WordPress I’d highly reccomend as the Best Blog Publishing Platform and to use to build your own website. It’s also Free and so easy to customize with suitable themes. My sites are built on WordPress.org so you can use your own domain unlike the WordPress.com platform which you don’t have as much control over customising.
Elegant themes have beautiful themes and I have found these to be the best to use with a WordPress website. You can choose from quite a large selection and you will get an amazing custom look and feel but without the price tag of a custom design. Go and check them out. You also get included with Elegant Themes great tools Bloom (for excellent landing pages) and Monarch (for Social sharing ) so you get a lot for your money. I first invested in the annual payment which was around $88 however after a year I loved the DIVI theme so much I upgraded to the Lifetime one off payment. See more here
Marketing Systems & Lead Systems
Everyone who has a business these days needs some form of marketing system and automation. There is a lot of choice. It is difficult when starting out in business to afford the high cost of some of the most popular options. That’s one of the reasons I recommend that you take a look at this amazing option at Sumo.com This option alone will save you a fortune over the years of your business.
Sumo – Sumo is a brilliant suite of free tools that can be used to grow your website’s traffic which lots of the big players are using. The Sumo tools are easy to install and work on any website. You can upgrade if feel you need to for extra features and more sites. Sumo also offer many amazing deals on AppSumo which is a daily deals website for digitally distributed goods and online services. AppSumo & Sumo are part of Noah Kagan’s Sumo Group. Check them out here
Lead Pages/Landing Pages
Sumo again offer brilliant Landing Mats and is included free as part of sumo. You can use their polite pop ups and smart bars which I really like too. There are lots of others which you could pay more for when you need to like Leadpages, Instpages, etc…but reccomend you start with sumo.
Bloom is another great part of the Elegant Themes suite. Bloom is a brilliant eMail Opt-In And Lead Generation Plugin For WordPress which is included in the Elegant Themes ( see above ) Check it out here
Graphics for your Website – DIY No Photoshop neeeded!
Canva.com My absolute favourite. I get Canva for Work so you can upload your branding, logos, fonts, social media designs etc..
PicMonkey.com Much the same as Canva so it comes down to which you prefer to use.
