Below is a list of online tools that I personally use (and recommend) on my blogs (this very one included).
- Aweber is the email provider that I use. You can sign up for my free e-newsletter here. I have Aweber set up to send out a newsletter automatically every time I personally write a blog post (which isn’t as much as I’d like, so don’t expect much email from me).
- Fiverr sells all sorts of services on Fiverr for only $5 each. I’ve gotten several banners and videos made for only five bucks each.
- Genesis Framework is the parent theme that I use for this website. The Modern Blogger Pro WordPress theme from Pretty Darn Cute Designs is the Genesis child theme that I use, although I’m playing around with new themes.
- GoDaddy is where I buy my domain names.
- Hootsuite allows me to manage dozens of different social accounts in one place. I can schedule posts and even reply via this handy, dandy tool.
- PicMonkey is a free image editor, but I actually use the paid version for the most options. This is great for making images for my Pinterest page!
- PrettyLinkPro is a URL shortener that cloaks and redirects link. I use this to mask affiliate links. All of the links on this page are shortened with Pretty Link Pro.
- Stencil is my new BFF. You can create images (includes free images) in a flash in every size and publish to social media instantly.
- Tailwind schedules pins to Pinterest. Everytime I publish a new post (or update an old post with a new graphic), I can schedule the new image to be pinned during optimal times to different boards.
- WPEngine is the host for my blogs. They make it super simple to migrate from other hosts, and their customer service is top notch! They may be a tad more expensive, but the free support that you receive makes it worth it.
