In my marketing business I’ve come across many resources that aid me in my business and I am happy to share those with you. Some are affiliate and others are not but I’d appreciate that you use my affiliate links if you do decide to move forward with purchasing any of these tools.
SiteGround – is a super hosting company that I switched to after my countless GoDaddy “resources” issues. I haven’t had a problem since and several of my website partners agree and use SiteGround as well.
Post Planner – social media app in Facebook to aid in coming up with viral content
Stock Unlimited – this is a great place to get unlimited pictures for an annual price and the images are really great. I stumbled onto this one at $49/year and not sure if they still offer this steal, but worth looking into.
Can Stock Photos – another great place to get pictures you can safely use on your website, marketing material &
more. The pricing depends upon whether you get a subscription or purchase download credits. Of course, depending upon how many you want, as far as credits, will determine how much for each image. Usually, the more you buy, the cheaper it is per image.
Aweber – autoresponder to use for your email marketing campaign. While sometimes it can be frustrating, their support is VERY helpful and has alleviated much frustration.
TweetDis – is a super ‘click to tweet’ tool that allows creative and cool customization for your click to tweets within your blogs or website pages. I have used them on all of my last blogs over the last year and integrating them into my old blogs because it is too good not to use. I even wrote a blog on the CTT (click to tweet) functionality and why you should be doing it.
Social Quant – is a Twitter follower builder but not just about following folks who follow you but structured around keywords that you want to find people associated with. Review them often, add and remove them based on your results. I went from 2k followers to 12k in just under a year and these are quality followers. But, just like anything else, pointless if you don’t engage with them.
Deposit Photos – another great place to get pictures you can safely use on your website, marketing material & more and the photos are each $1!
HootSuite – time saving tool to aid with scheduling your social media posts. It is currently free to use for up to 3 social profiles
Canva – great social media picture creation tool – assists with profile and cover photos, save the date, invitations, flyers and much much more. It’s free to join and you can use some of their pictures for free, others are only $1 each.
PicMonkey – photo creation tool, helps turn plain photos into viral photos, super easy to edit without needing to be a graphic designer. This has a free version which you can do many of the basic editing and upgrade if you want more
Fiverr – basically anything you want to have done for you for $5. You have to do your homework on this one and I’d test out small parts of your needs to find something you can work with that does what you need, and well.
Legal Shield – have piece of mind for your family and your business knowing that you have an attorney on call to discuss your needs from living will, traffic tickets or citations, business formation, name change or various court documents, document review, family court issues, protecting your family with your right to carry a firearm and so much more. There are riders for Indentity Theft and more coverage for your Home or Small Business.
Dollar Photo Club – place to get pictures you can safely use on your website, marketing material & more and the photos are each $1! Update – WAS sold earlier in 2015, no longer affiliate and not accepting new members, however Deposit Photos (above) has similar pictures and good stuff.
I have many others I could list but this is a good start.
