My Favorite Tools, Services, and Products

  

See below for a complete

list of My Favorite Tools and Software

My Favorites

I have investigated so many digital tools, products, and services in the last decade!  I have narrowed down my favorites to the ones you see below.  If you are looking for a tool for a specific use, just message or email me and I will help you to find one! One more thing-some of the links below may be affiliate links, which means I will make a few dollars if you sign up!  YAY and my family thanks you!!!  

Website Hosting

DreamHost

All of our websites are hosted through DreamHost. They have amazing speeds on VPS’, free SSLs, and low prices!

SiteGround

SiteGround is another very popular website hosting platform.  They also have amazing customer service and free SSLs.

WordPress Tools

Divi Theme

All of our websites are designed using the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes.  This is an easy to use and very versatile theme. We also se it for all client sites and include 1 hour of training and video tutorials. 

Social Media

SocialBee

SocialBee is the scheduling tool we use!  You can schedule to both Groups, Pages, and your profile as well as LinkedIn Pages and Google My Business.  

SocialPilot

This is another robust and amazing Social Media Scheduling tool.  Google My Business Scheduling is rare, but Social Pilot has it!

Tailwind

Tailwind is the best tool for Pinterest scheduling and growth!  Tribes allow you to get more exposure to your pins. Instagram scheduling as well!

Group Convert

If you run a Facebook Group, this is a MUST HAVE tool.  You will save hours of time and outsourcing with this simple plugin. Mass approve new group members without losing any of the membership entrance answers!  They get exported to a Google Sheet on your drive!  So Simple!

Scheduling Tools

Acuity Scheduling

This is a tool I have been using for 3 years now.  It is so comprehensive, despite my extensive research and experiments, I have not been able to replace it with anything better. 

CRM

Dubsado

Dubsado has literally changed my business! From workflows, invoicing, proposals, and just having one safe place to store all of my client information, Dubsado does it all!  I still haven’t been able to replace Acuity for scheduling, although Dubsado does have this option.  Try it out!

Accounting

FreshBooks

Freshbooks is a great alternative to difficult to understand Quickbooks and other software.  It gives you an amazingly clear look at your income and expenses.  Never not know where your finances stand again! 

Email

AWeber

AWeber

I started with MailChimp then switched to Mailerlite.  Then I met Jena Bagley, from AWeber!  She said one thing that made me make the switch (well, two things).  The first was deliverability-AWeber does not outsource their email deliverability and they also take extra precautions to keep your email from going to spam. The second thing was FREE migration!  WHAT!?  To know that I did not have to copy over anything from my MailerLite account and it would just magically appear was music to my ears.  After actually using AWeber, I was able to change my life and business even more by setting up a Blog Broadcast for my podcast!  That means every time a new episode is released, AWeber automatically sends an email to my listeners!  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

Mailerlite

Earlier this year, I switched from MailChimp to Mailerlite because of the pricing restructure.  In order to continue using MailChimp the way I currently use Mailerlite, it would cost $199 per month!  No way!  Mailerlite is actually way easier to use, easy to create new groups and just functions more intuitively than MailChimp. You have a list of 1,000 and/or send up to 12,000 emails per month free.  I am close to maxing out right now, but I will stay put and upgrade because it is so affordable! If you want an inside tour of Mailerlite before you commit, click here to get a sneak peek!  

SEO

SEMrush

SEMrush is my favorite SEO tool.  You can monitor one website for free or sign up for the Pro plan and monitor 5. The tools that are included are impressive from auditing tools to backlinking and keyword research. If you want to invest in professional tools, start here!

Software

AppSumo

This is by far one of my favorite places to get software deals!  I have gotten some amazing lifetime deals for a fraction of the cost of a yearly membership or even a few months of the software.  This is a MUST SIGN UP (at least just for the emails) to see what they are offering!

Membership Sites

Membership Academy

Membership Academy has been such an amazing resource for me when building not only my own membership site but client’s sites as well.  This is the ultimate go-to resource for everything membership sites!  

MemberPress

This is the Plugin that I built Online Marketing For Moms with.  It is comprehensive and also easy to use for the user and to set up.  It pairs easily with Affiliate Royale to create an affiliate system.

Member Mouse

Member Mouse was my second choice for a Membership plugin for my WordPress Membership, Online Marketing For Moms.  This is also a robust membership.  I chose MemberPress because of the Affiliate Royale setup.

Wow Amanda is absolutely wonderful! Not only she is the nicest person, she is a pleasure to talk to and open up to. Her knowledge and expertise of SEO and a variety of "behind the scenes" practices that can improve the life, presence, and businesses of entrepreneur is incredible. In a very short meeting, what I need to do and how I need to do it became super clear to me. I will definitely be using Amanda's services in the future and recommend her to anyone who'd be looking for SEO and social media assistance.

Amanda...you are a website wizard...among other things! Thanks for reviewing my website and outlining what needed to be done to improve the speed and other "back office" issues. I'm so happy with how my website performs and looks now. Also, I loved your You Tube thumbnail "tutorial" for my blog's videos. Your expertise is invaluable. Thank you!
