In addition to our own business tools I currently make use of, or have used, the following tools:
Email + Marketing
Mailchimp (free, with limits) — This is a good starting tool for dipping your toes into email marketing. The free version does not allow much complexity in your sales funnel, so if you want to have a fairly complex process take a look at Mailerlite.
MailerLite (free, with limits) — This is my email marketing tool of choice, after moving on from Mailchimp. I don’t have complex needs but the free version has so far coped with everything I have wanted to do.
Hosting + Website
SiteGround* — This is my website hosting tool of choice (you can normally get a really good deal on your first year!). It is fast, has free automatic daily backups and unlimited websites and email accounts per domain.
Namecheap* — I like to keep the management of my domain name and website hosting separate, so that I am not tied into with any one provider just in case circumstances change. I’ve found Namecheap reasonably priced and provide as standard many tools that sites, such as GoDaddy, charge as extras.
Tailwind* — if you want to schedule you posting to Pinterest then Tailwind is the best tool for the job. It also provides a pin design tool and tools to publish to other social media accounts.
Later – There is a free version for Instagram and Facebook, with limits, and is the best tool I have found to get you started.
Graphics + fonts
Canva — The free version provides lots of functionality but the paid Pro version opens up everything.
Design Cuts* — Lots of fun graphics, fonts and mockups to be found.
Creative Market* — Lots of fun graphics, fonts and mockups to be found.
Font Squirrel (free) — For finding fonts.
For pdf manipulation: https://www.ilovepdf.com (free)
for making editable pdfs: https://www.pdfescape.com/ (free)
Google Adwords (free) — This should always be your starting point for keyword research. It’s free so what is there to lose.
AnswerThePublic — This is a great tool for researching what types of questions your audience may be asking in your niche.
Erank — If you have an Etsy shop this is one of the Etsy specific keyword research tools.
Marmalead — If you have an Etsy shop this is one of the Etsy specific keyword research tools.
EverBee — If you have an Etsy shop this is one of the Etsy specific keyword research tools.
