The Best Resources For Your Online Business + Blog

When I first became interested in working from home, I worried about how I would manage my time and organize my business without the luxuries of my workplace's resources and connections. But going into my third year of working from home, I have found ways to successfully streamline my business.

We want to help set YOU up for success in your work-from-home business, so we've compiled a list of resources:

Website + Blogging Tools

WordPress.org-when I first started blogging, I used wordpress.com. But I quickly learned the importance of owning my site. With wordpress.org, you have complete control of your site and can customize each template, add plugins, and even incorporate coding.

Squarespace-a platform for bloggers with “ease” in mind. It provides visually stunning website designs and extensive styling options with a loyal customer service to help along the way.

Convertkit– easily integrates with WordPress, provides emails, automation, and course templates that are easy to use. Also, take note of their reliable support team!

Leadpages– create landing pages on your website for sales, registration, videos and more!

Mailchimp– an email marketing service that provides templates and saves lists of subscribers for automated emails and newsletters.

Google Drive– holds spreadsheets, docs, and can be shared with team members to view and edit as needed.

Hosting Domains

GoDaddy-a hosting domain for blogs and websites. You can purchase a domain name here as well.

BlueHost– another hosting domain with quality customer service. Bluehost provides storage space and easy to use tools for beginners.
