Other Stuff I’ve Used and Recommend
Various Free and Paid Tools
Digital Gangsta Course: This is how I got my start learning tech and online marketing. It’s a monster class that teaches you marketing strategy, technology, and everything you could possibly need to set up a successful online business. It’s an investment, but it’s really amazing. I have a great business going…and still dozens of modules I haven’t even scratched the surface on!
Create Your Laptop Life Membership: The membership associated with the class above. Excellent place for business connections, hiring help, learning marketing, getting tech help when you’re stuck, etc. Included in The Digital Gangsta course, above.
Facebook Ads Class: This teacher (Julie Stoian) is a master. Don’t waste money on Facebook ads without taking a class first! This course is also included in The Digital Gangsta course, above.
Divi: This is a drag-and-drop WordPress theme with plenty of pre-made templates, a massive amount of online support, and endless possibilities. I built this site with it, and once you get through the initial learning curve, YOU WILL LOVE IT.
Dubsado: This is my client-management platform. Emails, contracts, invoices, finances…it’s all tracked in one place.
Mailerlite: The best of the free email service providers…but I have to be honest: I don’t love it. Some people do, so I’m including it, but I find it non-intuitive and glitchy at times. I moved to Convertkit, and moving everything is a huge pain, so be sure you’re going to like the system before you get too deep in with it!
Convertkit: The best of the paid email programs. (Everyone has opinions about these, but I trust the lifetime digital marketers in my network, and they love Convertkit.) When you pay for a provider, you have a much better chance of avoiding the dreaded junk mail folder, and that’s a BIG deal!
Keywords Everywhere: Find keywords fast.
Eye Dropper Chrome Extension: Find color hex codes instantly.
Canva: Build all your graphics for free!
Brighter Vision: All-in-one website design and managed hosting company.
Cris Roskelley. A therapist and website designer.
Ring Light: Ten bucks to make your videos and Lives stand out.
