My Fave Tools for Business, Money, and Blogging

Must Have Freelance Business Resources

Freshbooks

I can't believe I waited so long to start using FreshBooks. Now that I use it, I'm never going back to my old manual spreadsheet. It saves me countless hours of time every month. I also love that I can customize the invoices I send to my clients to make they look branded with my logo and colors. It keeps my small business looking professional! Try it with my link and you'll get your first month of FreshBooks Classic for free.

iMark Interactive

Even though I've been blogging and running an online business for four years, I'm still terrible at tech. Luckily, Grayson Bell, a fellow blogger and WordPress/tech expert, keeps my site up and running. He's around almost 24/7 and is super fast whenever I need help. No question is too big or small for Grayson. I'm on his monthly plan so he monitors my site for security issues, bugs, updates, and more. It takes a huge load off my mind to know that Grayson's got my back.

Flourish with Facebook Ads

Facebook ads have been a game-changer for my business. They've helped me grow my blog traffic, social media reach, and more. Before you hit "Boost Post" on Facebook, take this course so you don't waste money on ineffective Facebook ads.

Must Have Blog Resources

GoDaddy

GoDaddy is my go-to source for buying new web domains. If you're already a blogger, chances are you've already bought your domain. But, when you get yet another idea for a blog, buy the domain on GoDaddy.

HostGator

There are tons of web hosting companies out there, but I went with Host Gator when I first started. It's budget-friendly, with plans starting out at about $3.50 per month. As traffic increased to my site over the years, I had to go to a more expensive hosting to handle higher volumes of visitors, but it's still a great way to start. If you use my link, you'll get 20% off of your first order.

Tailwind

Tailwind saves me tons of time on my Pinterest strategy and makes it easy to get my content seen by more users. After a free trial, their plan for bloggers and small businesses is only $9.99/month. But, you can save an extra $30 when you use my link.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the top ways to earn money from your blog. To help you get started with affiliate marketing, check out Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. This comprehensive course was created by one of my blogger friends, Michelle. She currently earns over $100,000 per MONTH from her blog because of affiliate marketing.
