Important Blogging Tools
All of my Highly recommended blog tools!
This is the hosting company I use and I highly recommend them! Their services are cheap, which is great for bloggers just starting out on a tight budget! And their customer service is fast and reliable too!
Email Service- Convertkit
Your email list will become the lifeblood of your business, so it’s important to start one right away! I’ve tried many email services at this point and Converkit is by far my favorite! It was made by a blogger, for bloggers so it is super user-friendly for beginners! And the best part? They launched a free version! So, no commitment needed! 🙂 Try Convertkit for FREE!
I love shopping for blog themes! There are a lot of amazing ones out there. Personally, I buy them from Creative Market. And, the best part about Creative Market is there are tons of other things you can buy on there as well, like fonts and photos! Check out Creative Market here!
Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduling tool and it is something I use weekly! It’s what has helped me get to 200,000+ Pinterest views a month! If you get nothing else from this “Blogging extra” list, I highly recommend Tailwind! And the best part? You can check it out for free for your first 100 pins! Check out Tailwind’s Features HERE!
One of my favorite blogging tools! I use Canva multiple times a week and create all my social media graphics with it! I love Canva Pro because it eliminates my need to buy a stock photo subscription! Check out Canva’s Pro features HERE!
WP Tasty Pins
WP Tasty Pins is a plugin designed by a food blogger, but this plugin is for all types of bloggers! This plugin is all about helping you optimize your images for Pinterest and better your SEO! Check out all the features HERE!
Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing
This course is honestly fantastic! Michelle, the creator, Makes $100,000 a month. $50,000 of that is just from affiliate marketing alone! She’s taught me so much about affiliate marketing, and helped me make my very first sale! Highly recommend!
Pinterest With El
If you were to walk away with any single item on this list, I’d choose this one. This course has taken my Pinterest game to the next level! Not only is Lauren (the creator of the course) an all-around amazing person, her strategies work! You can check out all of the results of her course, plus the pricing here!
This book is awesome for helping anyone who wants to start a YouTube channel and learn to grow quickly! I bought this book to help me grow my own YouTube channel (For an older blog) and I wish I would have bought it sooner!
However, if you’re not able to buy any books right now, the writer of the book (Sean Cannell) has fantastic YT videos which can be found here!
This is another great YouTube book that I bought. This one is a bit different in that it teaches you how to set up an account from step one.
It is a bit outdated since YouTube has updated its systems since the release of the book, but he actually mentions the change in the book so it is still 100% relevant to modern-day YouTube (Some of the features have just changed locations).
Other than that, it has some really great information in it and it worth the read!
The Neuroscience of Selling
If you’re into the logistics of selling and getting into the minds of the consumer, this is the book for you!
It’s all about helping you make more sales, getting more leads and really thinking like a consumer!
The Girls Guide to Starting a Business
This book is about two women who have started a business together. While they have since gone off on their own, they wrote a book about their experiences.
The women interview other women in business and give you a great insight into the world of entrepreneurship. It even has workbook-like parts where they ask you questions and you can write your answers inside the book. Something I wasn’t expecting, but actually enjoyed.
A must for women starting their own business!
