Web hosting and design
Bluehost — Need help to host a blog or website? For as low as $5.95, depending on the space and bandwidth you need. You can get set up on Bluehost via 1-click WordPress Technology. Bluehost is one of the leading web hosts on the Internet, and they offer 24/7 customer service.
Scrivener — I’m using scrivener to write essays, blogs and I’m writing my current book with this software. Because it provides a hierarchical file structure.It has a distraction-free writing mode and it allows for a variety of export options
Simplenote — I’m using this FREE little app to take notes whenever I am. The reason I am recommending this is because it has a simple interface and your writing will be free of distractions.
Grammarly — is an online software tool. I used this software to check my work for proof-reading. It offers a FREE for lifetime membership plan. If you want to maximize it, subscribe to a pro plan that offers style check, and other improvements you can use.
ProWritingAid — is an online software that helps you to edit your work in terms of grammar, spelling, style and proper use of punctuations. I used this to edit my work and it has a free trial. Once your trial period expired, you can freely use the software to edit your work but it will be limited to 500 words per check.
Pablo - I like Pablo by Buffer because it’s free. If you are not a graphic artist and don’t like to bother yourself from taking photos outside your backyard, this tool is for you. It offers millions of free images that you can use. You don’t need to search google for free pictures. Pablo can do that without switching tabs.
Canva - Like Pablo, Canva offers a wide array of options to design your own illustration. It offers different sizes that you can choose from. You can now also create slides on the go with this application
Mailchimp - Free for the first 2,000 subscribers. There are a lot of Email Marketing Tools out there that is better than MailChimp but this is the one I’m using for now since my list is still relatively small. GREAT for small to medium businesses.
Aweber - Has some advantages over Mailchimp and it comes with a monthly fee. GREAT if you use this for massive sales marketing.
Audible by Amazon — This app is how I am able to read books without actually reading! I just listened to it! The app is available on both Android, IOS, and Windows Phone. What’s more?
- Includes two free audiobooks with your free trial.
- After 30 days, get 1 book each month, $14.95/month
- You get all of this when you sign up!
