The BEST Resources Recommended for your Business & Life

Our Favorite Tools to Get you sorted in your business and life!

Welcome to the Success Resources section, a lovely list of the tools and websites I absolutely LOVE and recommend for building and crafting your business and life. I have used and abused every recommendation on this page. Some if not most of them I use EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust please do note:

Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve the outcome you desire.

 

WEBSITES

 

 Lisa Rees who founded Website wonder Woman is actually a godsend! I LOVE her! Not only because she is so down to earth and lovely but because she knows her stuff when it comes to anything WordPress and anything membership site building! She seriously is one of the most trusted and valuable parts of my business, without her support none of us would have this website or membership site! I highly recommend her for all things website – hosting, domains, monthly support packages that start at just £50 per month! Lisa also offers an amazing service with a full website for less than £300!!!!!! Get yourself over there & check here out!

LEAD PAGES

 LeadPages is an online tool that helps you to collect email subscribers. It is so simple and easy to use I just love it!

I literally use it daily in my business, it is my number 1 tool for lead generation! Not only can you create amazing and beautiful landing pages but you also have the function of it popping up for your website visitors to see. My favourite function of all is the exit pop up. Which means that when someone is leaving your site, you can pop up a message to them before they leave! AMAZING right! This has got to be my number 1 lead generation tool!

EMAILS

 

 

Mail chimp is so easy and simple to use, I use it for all of my email marketing. it is super easy to set up autoresponders and simple marketing campaigns even linking it to your woo commerce shopping website!

You can track analytics, set up really lovely pretty looking drag and drop templates and much much more. I have tried other mailing software before and nothing is as straightforward as MailChimp! It also starts off free before you hit a certain amount of subscripbers. AND it intergrates with EVERYTHING so automation is perfect! I love it!

ONLINE COURSE SOFTWARE / MEMBERSHIP SITES

 

THIS HAS GOT TO BE MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIME! I honestly cannot even stress to you how amazing this platform is! I worked with my online course content for a good 12 months before moving it all over to teachable, and the weight it has lifted from my shoulders has been epic! I must admit, I hesitated for months trying to make do with my own website building skills and didn’t sign up straight away, but once I did I did not regret it! Seamlessly integrates with all the popular software tools like MailChimp and Leadpages and you can drip feed your content! It can even be your payment gateway for you, and has a built in affiliate program for your members! I honestly cannot tell you how amazing it is – I must do a post detailing all the amazing reasons why I use them, but for now, you can check them out yourself!

If you are anything like me you LOVE learning new things and listening to amazing podcasts and reading books! Now, full disclosure here….it took me a LONG time to actually get audible myself. Only because, there really is nothing like having a proper book to hold, and obviously if you are listening to it, you can’t hold it, make notes in it, scribble all over it or put sticky notes all over it (yeh, I do that…) HOWEVER! When I did finally decide to try the free trial, I FELL IN LOVE! I got through my first book in just 3 days! The only bad thing I can say is I want more that one book a month! Haha, We’ve teamed up with audible to get you your first 30 days free too so you can try it out! Yes, your welcome 😀

SOCIAL MEDIA

 

I always used to find myself stuck on what content to add to my social media, when to share, what to share how to share…the list goes on! UNTIL!!! I found Recur Post! I did previously use Meet Edgar, which I also LOVE, but these guys have a free version that does all you need and allows you to create banks of content to post recurring until you stop it! For example, if you have a series of blogs you create on a weekly basis, you can add it to a folder called ‘blogs’ and schedule it to use these forever! So if one week you miss writing your blog, or you decide you want to write 5 at once you can add them to your bank and it is taken care of! Yes! I love ANYTHING that saves me time AND money!

I use it on my phone when I am on the go, on my computer when I am working and on my tablet when I have that to hand!
