I’ve tried a lot of different email marketing services and recently switched back to my all-time favourite, MailerLite. It’s super simple to use, very affordable (I saved over $1300 per year by switching from Activecampaign) their support is great and I honestly love using their campaign designer and tools.
It’s fun to use and I want to enjoy the tools I use, so MailerLite is a winner.
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!
Podia is a platform that lets you host and sell online courses, digital downloads, webinars and even memberships. It’s super user friendly (both for the course creator and students), doesn’t take a cut of your course fees (unlike other platforms) and looks great.
I use it for my beginner course “Stop Dreaming, Start Packing” and absolutely recommend it. Check out Podia for 14-days free here.
Zoom has been one of my favourite tools for many years now and it’s where I host all my meetings, live events and even Facebook Lives. It’s super reliable, has great connectivity, needs little bandwidth 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.
SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLS
SmarterQueue is my favourite tool for scheduling posts to Facebook and Twitter. It’s just as powerful as Meet Edgar, but costs a fraction of the price. You can re-share evergreen content so that your blog posts get the love they need regularly. Get a free month’s trial by using this link.
