An ever growing list of the products, services, and resources I use and highly recommend for small business owners, especially if you're looking to simplify your marketing and leverage your results.
My all time favorite resource for all things Instagram is Brock Johnson & Chalene Johnson's InstaClubHub. The best resource to use to setup, build and grow your Instagram account. Get real followers and real results.
One of my favorite resources is Appsumo, from software to templates, it's a great resource with some incredible deals.
Need Canva templates you can edit for things like journals, planners, checklists? Things you'd like to offer your students or members but just aren't a designer yourself? Check out Secret Weapon Private Label Rights. It's an amazing membership that gives you access to new templates each and every month.
Email marketing, membership site, website, landing/opt-in pages, and so much more, I use Ontraport. Hands down the best business purchase I've made. I started using Ontraport in 2014 and I've never regretted it. The customer service is amazing and the software just keeps getting better and better. If you decide to get Ontraport, let me know. I am Ontraport certified and I have team members who are as well.
If you're looking for and email marketing software for a new business (with basic landing page functionality), I recommend getting MailerLite. MailerLite has a free version to start with and it moves up from there. It's an easy to use software that were I starting out right now, I'd be starting with MailerLite.
Snail mail is not a thing of the past and if you are trying to customize and streamline at the same time, you can't go wrong using SendOutCards. I've been using SendOutCards since sometime around 2006 or 2007. I started using it when I was in real estate and then when I transitioned my business to online, I've been using it to engage my clients and members through various snail mail options. If you join SendOutCards using my link, send me an email and let me know. I've got a surprise gift for you.
Video hosting with all of the bells and whistles! Searchie includes insanely accurate video transcriptions, Hub hosting (create quick & easy course & membership sites & landing pages using your videos), and amazing customer service. I moved all of my videos to Searchie in 2018 and haven't looked back.
Printer ink is expensive, but when I found out about HP Instant Ink, I was hooked. I now always buy HP Instant Ink printers and subscribe them. It's cheaper than any ink options out there, including buying ink at Costco when they have sales. And, the best part, I never ever have to think about ink. HP Instant Ink automatically detects when I need ink and sends it to me. I can increase or decrease my subscription on a moments notice. I love it and highly recommend it. I've been a subscriber since 2017 and I now have multiple subscriptions.
