So many people have helped me indirectly and some directly since I began my business in 2009. In an effort to give to those who are following me, here are the tools that I use in my business.
Disclosure: Some links on this page are affiliate links that allow me to earn a commission if you make a purchase using my link. I only list product I have used and would I recommend to my daughters.
WordPress: The #1 Blog Publishing Platform. Free and easily customizable with wonderful support. All of my blogs use WordPress.
Google Analytics: Google’s free website tracking and analytical tool. A must have for anyone with any type of website.
Toastmasters: While we are writers, having a blog is not enough to promote ourselves. We need to get in front of people a speak, and Toastmasters can make that possible. I have been a member since 2010 and would encourage you to carve a week out of your schedule to begin attending meetings.
Writing & Publishing
Elance: I have had wonderful success with hiring editors using eLance.
FatCow Hosting: This is the hosting company I have been using since December of 2002 to host all of my various sites. I have looked at others but I have found no company easier to use for the price. Click this link to get a special discount off the regular price!
