I get asked soooo often about which tools and services I use for my location independent business, so I thought I’d put them all together for you here. Some of these links are affiliate links which means I receive a small commission if you decide to buy a service or tool through my link at absolutely no extra cost to you! It’s a win win 😍 And I only recommend things I use myself or have tested out myself!

BUSINESS TOOLS

Digital Nomad Girls Resources Siteground

Siteground

My favourite WordPress hosting service is Siteground because of their amazing customer service (they’ve helped me so much, even with non-hosting related stuff), their performance and affordable price tag. Hosting starts at only $5.95 per month, check it out here.

Digital Nomad Girls Resources Divi

Divi Theme

My absolutely favourite theme of all time is the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes. It’s super easy to use with its own drag-and-drop builder, there are tonnes of tutorials and resources out there because it’s one of the most popular themes AND you can use it on as many websites as you want, even client websites. Check Divi out, I’m sure you’ll love it too!

Digital Nomad Girls Resources Memberpress

Memberpress

If you want to build your own membership site, just like the DNG Inner Circle, I recommend using the Memberpress plugin for WordPress. It’s pretty simple to use, compatible with all themes and really flexible.

Digital Nomad Girls Resources Zoom

Zoom

Zoom is another one of my favourite new tools and it’s where I hold all my meetings, live events and even Facebook Lives now. It’s super reliable, has great connectivity and you can record all your meetings to share or upload them later.  It’s so much more than just meeting software, you can even record courses in Zoom.

Digital Nomad Girls Resources Convertkit

Convertkit

I’ve tried a lot of different email marketing services and just switched to Convertkit recently, but I am really happy with the functionality, which allows me to create landing pages and set up automations and sequences.

Convertkit is really powerful, but also really easy to use.

Digital Nomad Girls Resources Zapier

Zapier

If you haven’t heard of Zapier yet, be prepared to have your mind blown! Zapier is an automation app that lets you connect over 1000 other tools.

It makes each one of your other apps and tools more powerful, that’s why it’s definitely worth the investment for me.

TRAVEL TOOLS
