We all want to use the best tools to get the most work done. But how do you choose the right tools? Honestly, it’s helpful to get a fresh pair of eyes on your systems (or lack thereof?) and get some new ideas.
Here are my favorite tools as a long-time blogger as well as biz strategist and blogging coach. Some of these are free tools and some are paid. I receive a small affiliate commission when you use some and others I don’t. These are the tools I use and help people use regularly.
I use (and recommend) ConvertKit. I’ve used others until I was ready for more, but the truth is that for any blogger ready to automate and streamline her processes so she can spend less and still have a growing bottom line this is the tool you want! Having an email list is essential…and having a reliable, powerful way to connect with that list and offer them solutions is necessary.
If you’re not ready to make the investment into ConvertKit or you just need something simpler, then MailerLite is the way to go. It’s where I started and they are a great company.
And if you’re ready to learn how to build your empire with e-mail systems, Meera Kothand is your gal. One of my favorite women in the business world and someone I consider a friend and amazingly talented biz savvy genius, Meera holds nothing back in her Profitable Email Systems course.
I also use Google – docs, sheets, numbers, drive. I adore my Google interface that keeps all the things connected!
If you’re newer to SEO and want something that won’t break the bank, but will help you get started then Keysearch is the tool for you! Stay tuned for some trainings coming in 2020 about maximizing its potential for your blogging biz.
If you’re ready to level up and deep dive into SEO and really take things to the next level, then Stupid Simple SEO is the best course I’ve encountered and I can’t recommend it enough.
