a list of my favorite business tools and resources.

planoly

tailwind

siteground

tools & Resources i use and recommend

I’ve been through a lot of website hosts over the years, but SiteGround has been the best by far. I haven’t had any downtime or issues with my website, even with a huge increase in traffic.


The best and most needed tool to really maximize your Pinterest marketing and save you tons of time!

My go-to Instagram scheduling tool. I’ve tried a lot of them but Planoly is definitely my favorite!

dubsado

styled stock society

colorjoy stock

The best and most diverse stock photography subscription out there. I use these photos everywhere – on my website, on social media, in my graphic templates.

Another really great option for stock photos that includes a wide variety and big gallery of photos to choose from.

While I don’t do a lot of 1:1 services anymore, Dubsado is still my go-to for my VIP Days and coaching packages. I’ve tried other options by Dubsado is by far the best once you get the hang of the automations, possibilities and workflows!


convertkit

elementor pro

grammarly pro

I do a lot of writing and content creation for my business. Grammarly Pro is an essential part of my blog writing process and making sure things are grammatically correct. I very quickly upgraded to the Pro version.


All of my websites are built with Elementor Pro. I can’t recommend the pro version enough for the added benefits and features, including: adding custom fonts, CSS code, and countdown timers.


I’ve used a lot of other email marketing platforms, like ActiveCampaign or FloDesk, but ConvertKit is definitely my favorite and the only one I use now. It’s also a much more cost-effective option as your list hits above the 5k subscribers’ mark.



canva pro

become a pinterest va

jasper

I’ve tried and tested a lot of AI writing tools and none of them hold a candle to Jasper (formerly called Jarvis). It can help you write blog posts, come up with new content ideas & so much more!

I took this course at the start of my Pinterest Manager journey many years ago and it’s one of the most comprehensive courses I’ve taken. If you’re interested in adding Pinterest Manager services for your clients, I can highly recommend it.

Because I was trained as a graphic designer using Photoshop I hesitated using Canva Pro for years and omg, I wish I had jumped in sooner. It’s so easy to customize and create great graphics for social media and all of your marketing.


interact

headliner

place it

I’ve been creating my own mockups lately but I did previously use Place It, which is a great option for creating mockups for your offers or digital products.

Headliner is my go-to tool for creating videos and audiograms for my podcast episodes. They are a great way to add video content to your marketing without showing your face, too (hey fellow introvert!)


If you want to create a quiz as a lead magnet, Interact is the best and easiest tool to use! Why are quizzes so great? People want to learn more about themselves, they are entertaining, and they usually have great conversion rates!



answer the public

semrush

libsyn

Libsyn is my podcast hosting platform of choice. I looked at other options when first launching my podcast but I’m glad I went with Libsyn.

SEMRush is by far the best and most in-depth SEO tool. While it is expensive on a monthly basis, you can start and stop your subscription as you need it (for example: do all of your competitor research in one month using it!)



Looking for content ideas? Answer the Public is the best free tool to see what people are searching for.




voxer

slack

ubersuggest

UberSuggest is a lower-priced but less robust option for a SEO tool (compared to SEMRush) but it’s a great tool that I definitely recommend.

I LOVE Slack. I use it for all team communication and have even started using it instead of Facebook Groups for some of my programs to communicate with students.


Voxer is a great audio and text messaging app that I use for my Voxer Coaching. I also host Voxer Coaching Days 2x per month for my Introvertpreneur Club members.





data dashboards

thrivecart

podia

Before I moved all of my courses and digital products to ThriveCart’s Learn platform, I used Podia. I still recommend them for anyone who doesn’t already have ThriveCart and wants to get started selling courses.


Literally all of my checkout pages are built using ThriveCart. All of my digital products, courses, and memberships are now hosted on the new Learn platform (which is included in your one-time ThriveCart purchase).



How can you grow your business strategically? Know your business numbers! I’m obsessed with the dashboards available from Brilliantly Visible.




airtable like a boss

airtable

summit in a box

One of the best business investments I ever made was signing up for Summit in a Box before I launched my first summit. If you want to host a summit, this program covers literally everything.

I’ve started using Airtable and Airtable automations for certain things in my business (like forms, summit speakers, our SOP library, etc.)




I love this course! It’s so helpful for anyone who wants to start using Airtable in a more automated and strategic way.



email marketing membership

savvysystem

profitable live trainings

I love everything Elizabeth Goddard puts out but my favorite training is Profitable Live Trainings. This program was the push I needed to start hosting live trainings almost once per month and turning them into evergreen products.


The SavvySystem is a great course for anyone who wants to get started as a virtual assistant.



With a $9/month membership, you don’t expect too much, but the email marketing membership from Liz Wilcox is amazing. Definitely one of the best investments I’ve made and continue to use in my business.




entrepreneur templates

zapier

done in a day

The Done in a Day program by Jordan Gill is a great program for anyone who wants to create a premium service and start focusing on VIP Days instead of retainer or packages.



I’m a little bit obsessed with automations! I use Zapier to connect all of my apps and tools together to automate anything I can possible automate in my business.




I can’t have a resource page without mentioning my own Canva templates membership. While I create these templates for the members, I absolutely use them daily in my own business, too.





otter

rev

haro

Want to get more backlinks or PR for your business? HARO (help a reporter out) will send you requests from reports and writers several times per day that you can pitch and respond to. Oh, and it’s FREE!




If you want high-quality transcriptions done by humans Rev is one of the best options.





I’m a little obsessed with Otter. With a paid plan, I can have live subtitles on my coaching calls, plus you can use it for machine-generated transcriptions and subtitles.






vimeo

loom

zoom

I host all of my live trainings, webinars, coaching calls, and meetings on Zoom.





Loom is what I use if I want to record a quick video for my team or a client.






Vimeo is my video hosting platform. I use Vimeo for hosting all of my videos for my courses, summits, etc.







wicked at wordpress

pintastic rockstars

the contract shop

If you need some contracts or legal documents for your business, The Contract Shop has you covered.






If you want to use Pinterest as a big part of your marketing strategy, you likely won’t find a more helpful course than Pintastic Rockstars from Laura Rike.







The Wicked at WordPress course from Chelsea Clarke is the most in-depth and helpful course I’ve found around WordPress.








hello audio

damn copy templates

descript

Want to edit and splice your videos? Descript to the rescue! Using Descript, you edit the transcript and then Descript will automatically edit the video to match – like magic!





I’ve worked with Sandra from Damn Copy before and she is amazing to work with! Her copy templates are even more perfect for anyone who wants a template to help them write engaging and converting copy.








I now have a private podcast membership through Hello Audio and I’m starting to add additional podcast feeds for my programs and courses in the upcoming months.
