Some of my favorite resources for BUSINESS & tools include:
Jasper – my favorite copywriting assistant.
Jasper uses artificial intelligence to create copy – FAST. I use it to help me come up with new ideas, improve and structure my writing, and save so much time.
Ubersuggest – where I find keywords and track stats for my website.
Ubersuggest is a great tool for content marketing. It helps you research and analyze your keywords to find the best ones to use in your content. It also provides ideas for new content topics based on what people are searching for. This is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to improve their content marketing strategy.
Surfer SEO – to make sure I do what I need to do for my website and blog SEO traffic.
Surfer SEO is a great tool that I use to help me with my SEO. It’s a tool that allows you to research and analyze your competitor’s websites plus use content clusters and linking in your content strategies. Surfer SEO is a great way to improve your website’s ranking in the search engines.
Circle.so – a membership platform I have played around with and recommend if you want an off social option.
If you’re looking for a platform to host a free / paid member area where the community can chat and comment this is the place to be. It’s got so many perks and features.
Canva – go Pro.
If you’re serious about being online, you will need content and graphics. If you’re not on a pro account, do it. You’ll thank me later with the benefits of the combined tools that are included.
Adobe Creative Cloud
The suite of products saves me in my book writing, workbook publishing, photo capture AND editing and all the next level things Canva cannot.
Dropbox – saves my files so I can find (+ share) them in seconds
This is must MUST have. You need cloud storage to make file sharing, finding your own files, and saving you from tech disasters (like a total computer crash while creating a cookbook). Get cloud storage. Period.
LastPass – my one stop password protector. No I do not save my passwords in Chrome.
Who doesn’t want a password keeper that integrates with your devices and learns your passwords for safe keeping and tracks harmful breaches that could jeopardize your data. Get it. best $36/year I spend.
Siteground – hosts my website(s) and blog(s)
Yes, multiple.. for one price. At first, I thought the fees were really expensive compared to other hosting plans, then I saw I could host multiple websites with that one fee. I’m pretty hooked. Lots of WordPress bloggers recommend them. They have a few big sales each year, especially around Black Friday.
Otter.io – saves time transcribing your videos and podcasts
Transcription is a needed piece to putting content online since we all learn in different ways. Otter makes it simple and inexpensive. This is where I would start. You can always move to Rev.com if you want a higher ticker option and potentially better quality, but I don’t know if you’ll need it.
Printful – create a merch shop in minutes
This is the print on demand option I use for my non-book merchandise. The shirts, mugs, totes, and hoodies are printed with them. It’s a hands off way to add another leg of income to your business.
Vervante – my book publisher and printer – THE BEST!
Check out their site. Book a call with this woman-based-business, Cindy Tyler and I think you’ll agree. They ARE different. Books, Workbooks, Card Decks, Planners and more.. they are my go to printer.
ps. Since I have more tools up my sleeve to help you with your book writing process, let me know where you’re at in your process. I would love to geek out and help you be an author.
Courses & Memberships resources I am a paid member of & recommend:
Feel Good Social Club – be social on your terms.
I love feeling different and that I truly am my brand. Kinsey at FGSC helps you create content that feels good, creates a brand vibe, and shares new templates that others do not have. Be different. Be YOU.
James Wedmore – Business By Design – the best biz course I ever bought.
If you’re like me, you’ve bought way too many courses and maybe didn’t complete most of them. BBD is a complete business in a box. Use what we have here in the club to get motoring but BBD helps you scale and network with others who are doing the same.
Makers Club with Rachel Miller
When I am not talking about James, I am talking about Rachel (no relation 😁). She knows Facebook and so many content creation tips to reach your audience and grow your traffic. I’m a member of Makers and Grow Your Audience.
Well there you have it, some business tips to help you thrive online.
I hope this was helpful and that you take away something positive from this. Remember, consistency is key and don’t give up. If you need help getting started or staying accountable, be sure to find me on Instagram @healthcoachkel and let’s connect.
