RESOURCES

TOOLS I RECOMMEND

TOP PICKS

Working online has its fair share of pros and cons. A ‘pro’ would be “there’s probably a software/equipment for that,” and ironically, that’s also the ‘con’.

There are SO MANY software, apps and equipment out there – especially now that digital work and its workers have multiplied significantly – that you may get stuck on finding ones that suit you best.

It doesn’t matter if someone is tech-savvy. When you find one that works for you and your business, you pretty much stay with it for as long as you possibly can – because no one wants to keep migrating their stuff over and over.

So, click any of the buttons below to see the list that I recommend and use (past and current) for business and personal!

SOFTWARE

CLIENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Dubsado

Dubsado is my go-to client management system. It handles my lead forms, scheduling, proposals, contracts, invoicing, payments, questionnaires, in-between email sending and workflow automation!
I can not advocate enough for this amazing software!

CLIENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

HoneyBook

I started with HoneyBook years ago and I’m so excited with how many changes they’ve made since then!

HoneyBook handles your proposals, contracts, scheduling, invoicing, payments and workflow automation. An added bonus that they have their own mobile app too!

Asana Task Project Management Work Management Collaboration

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Asana

Asana is a work management platform – task or project management and collaboration.

It’s simple yet effective in terms of project management between my team, clients and really, even my personal tasks.

I’m an Asana Ambassador, so let me know if you have any questions!

SOCIAL MEDIA PLANNING & SCHEDULING

Tailwind

Tailwind is a Pinterest (and Instagram and now Facebook too) scheduler on steroids.

You can get SO MUCH with it: analytics, evergreen or seasonal looped scheduling, tribes and so much more. I HIGHLY recommend this if you’re using Pinterest.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLANNING & SCHEDULING

Later

Later has been a lifesaver when it comes to planning and scheduling posts, with my aesthetics in mind, for my multiple social media accounts.

Later handles Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, TikTok and LinkedIn! No need to keep switching accounts just to plan, schedule and post!

It also lets you plan and schedule posts for your Pinterest account!

EMAIL MARKETING

MailerLite

The simplicity of MailerLite easily won me over. But don’t let that simplicity word fool you. MailerLite can do robust email marketing, even with the free account.

It now handles all my email marketing campaigns, subscriber forms, and email workflows.

MailChimp Email Marketing

EMAIL MARKETING

MailChimp

MailChimp has evolved from being an email marketing platform over the years. It also offers more features like advanced reporting and analytics.

That in mind, make sure that what you use, will help you, not overwhelm you.

EMAIL MARKETING

ConvertKit

I know a few bloggers and content creators with courses or digital products swear by ConvertKit.

If you do email courses and challenges, this is a great place to house it!

CONTENT OPTIMIZATION

TubeBuddy

TubeBuddy shows you rankings and tags of other YouTube videos, which helps fuel your content strategy.

CONTENT OPTIMIZATION

VidIQ

VidIQ gives you tools for video research, optimization and management.

It also shows you video search volume and competition, all of which save you time to keep creating powerful content.

Most, if not all, content creators proclaim their love for this tool.

WORDPRESS THEMES & PLUGINS

WPMet

If you want to have more site features but don’t know how to code or just want something fast and easy, WPMet is perfect for that.

Great pairing with the Elementor plugin.

DIGITAL ASSETS MARKET

Envato Market

If you deal with assets digitally, you’ll want Envato to be a part of your digital assets arsenal.

It’s a marketplace that has themes for websites (including wordpress), email marketing, and social media. Envato also has assets like stock photo and videos, audio, and more.

WEB HOSTING

SiteGround

A highly recommended WordPress hosting solution with its affordable pricing. Also, they are known for their fast performance and support.

EQUIPMENT

Being a tech junkie, I love it when I get my hands on new equipment.
This equipment list includes furniture for my home office that has served multi-purposes for me.
