Looking for the best blogging resources to invest in? Here are my tried and tested over the past few years. From starting your blog, designing your blog and growing it, here are the best tools that I used and recommend.
Web hosting and domain
SiteGround is what we are currently using after having traumatic experience with HostGator. We’ve been using HostGator for few years until few weeks ago that we’ve been having downtime almost everyday that makes us so worried. Get the right hosting for your blog 60% off with this link.
Themeforest is the perfect place if you want powerful, flexible and multi purpose website themes.The one I’m currently using is the Impreza which is multipurpose and responsive. You can also find a large collection of premium plugins that will make your website more powerful and highly customized.
ConvertKit is hands down the most powerful email marketing platform. You can add tags, make sequences, segment and create autoresponders and so many good stuff. Here’s a detailed post that I wrote if you wanna know more on why it is better than MailChimp.
SendOwl is my newly discovered tool to sell digital products online. We are currently using the free trial and so far it’s great! We will upgrade as soon as our trial expires.
Keeping up with Social Media
*Tailwind for Instagram this one is a new scheduling platform. I just recently sign up to their free 30 day trial. They are rolling out a lot of great features and I can’t wait to get started.
Payoneer is so helpful especially if you live outside of US and need to receive money from your clients. Here’s a detailed post on how you can use it for Amazon Affiliates payouts.
Macbook Pro 13″ when my 5 year old Lenovo laptop gave up, I knew I need something that will last many years and that’s why I invested to Macbook Pro 13 inch and I am seriously having a great time with it. There’s a bit of a learning curve because I was used to Windows but the quality is worth every penny.
Canon EOS Rebel is personally owned by Ben (my co-founder) and we use it every single time for taking photos for this blog or even travelling.The quality is top notch and it’s easy to use even if you’re not a camera-type-of-person. So if you have a budget go buy this one it’s a good investment.
iPhone SE don’t have the budget to get a new camera? Use your smartphone! This one is what I personally owned and I love it. It takes great pictures, it’s fast and very handy.
5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins this book helped me realize that I will never ever gonna feel like doing something unless I literally take action. I’ve also learned from this book that there is really Science behind our actions and how our brains work. What’s even more amazing about this book is that it comes with free mentoring sessions which has helped me tremendously.
