ONLINE RESOURCES FOR CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS
Below is a list of my favorite online resources for creative entrepreneurs designed to make your work life simpler, less stressful and more organized. I love them all and use them every day.
Your website needs a domain name and a place to live on the internet. A hosting service can provide both for you. Blue Host is known for its very competitive rates, as well as fantastic support and user-friendly platform. It’s a one-stop shop for the nuts and bolts of domain names and hosting plans that are right for your business’s needs.
Your website’s email (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) can usually only be accessed through an app that you get from your hosting service. Google’s G Suite lets you connect any email address to the Gmail platform, which I love because it has so many user-friendly features and extensions, and it can be accessed and synced by all your devices.
Build your email list with ConvertKit and watch your audience grow. Not only can you use ConvertKit to create email opt-ins, but you can also use it to create templates, automate email blasts and deliver free products to your subscribers. If you’ve ever thought about creating an online course to generate passive income, ConvertKit can support that, too!
Asana is a fabulous and free project management app that allows you to keep your projects organized while also allowing you to keep your clients in the loop. Say goodbye to unwieldy email threads and precious moments spent searching for email attachments and hello to an efficient and professional system that will impress your clients.
Calendly allows you to schedule calls and meetings without the back-and-forth email dance. It is so simple to use and it’s free to sign up. You can customize your calendar to the hours and days of the week that you’re free, as well as how much time you need between meetings and how many meetings you want to take in a day. There’s no more guessing game with Calendly.
Stitch Fix simultaneously simplified my life and stepped up my wardrobe game. If you’re anything like me, shopping is more of a time-consuming chore than a “treat yo’self” event. With Stitch Fix, you will love receiving custom-styled items sent right to your door that you can try on at your leisure. I’m even wearing clothes from Stitch Fix in my photos on this site!
