BUSINESS TOOLS

Email marketing: ConvertKit - when I started to implement a strategy with ConvertKit, my email list grew from 80 subscribers to over 600 in less than a week! Sign up to get their free e-book here.

Course hosting: Teachable - it wasn't hard deciding what course platform to go with when I started planning Influencer Marketing Masterclass. If you are thinking about creating courses (free or paid) for your business, Teachable is without a doubt the way to go.

Cross-platform automations: Zapier - this is a nifty little app I use to connect Squarespace to ConvertKit. There are lots of other apps you can integrate with Zapier that makes it so worth the monthly fee.

Invoicing + tracking finance: Wave - when I was on the lookout for an accountancy tool, I did a bit of research and had a good look at a number of tools but Wave was a no-brainer. The biggest selling point is that it’s completely free! Woohooo!

SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLS

The following tools are my favourite for planning, scheduling and monitoring my social media profiles:

Pinterest scheduling + looping: BoardBooster has done wonders for me this year. It has played a huge part in helping me reach nearly 210,000 Pinterest users each month!

Instagram planning + scheduling: Planoly - I don't think I can put into words how much I love this app. I think this is one of the best Instagram planning apps out there and it's well worth the investment. I actually have a whole blog post about it over here.

Facebook + Twitter scheduling: MeetEdgar - this tool has saved me hours each week planning and scheduling my social media posts. You can create your own content calendar with different categories of what you want to post, and then fill each category with your own library of posts that get sent out and looped around for forever... It's essentially proof that magic exists, folks.

WEBSITE TOOLS

Website (Designed For You) - Squarespace - if you want something that easy to set up with a beautiful pre-made design, Squarespace is for you!

Website (Customisable) - WordPress - if you want more options to customise your website, WordPress is where it's at! 

My website and blog are hosted through Squarespace but if you set up a WordPress blog, you're going to need a hosting service and a place to buy your domain name! I wholeheartedly recommend HostGator! I've used them in the past for another project and they were amazing.

Hosting and domain name: HostGator - if you sign up to HostGator hosting and use the code 'zoelinda35', you'll receive 35% OFF! You'll also get $100 AdWords credit just for signing up to a hosting package!
