So, I put together this amazing, constantly updated list of must-have tools and resources so that you can scale your business and make everything easier for yourself, your team, and your entire business strategy.

Let’s dive in! 👇🏼
We used to recommend another builder (starts with the letter D), but because Elementor has more and better features for a better price, we switched and never looked back.
Elementor is a drag-and-drop builder for WordPress that allows you to create pages your way. It has a large gallery packed with done-for-you templates for you to import and customize.
Amanda literally got rid of my launch migraine when I found her sales funnels templates! They are perfect for WordPress and Kajabi, and designed to convert.
I used her templates to:
– Create my webinar landing page
– Create my signature course Pinned Simple sales page
– Create my tripwire funnels
– Create my thank you pages
Without doing anything from scratch, and without hiring a designer or copywriter.
I use Canva to create EVERYTHING! My Instagram images, banners, ebooks, Pins, videos. When I say everything, I mean it.
I don’t know how to work Photoshop and I don’t feel like hiring a designer. Can relate? Canva is your friend.
You can keep your free account, which gives you A LOT. But if you want to go an extra mile, sign up for a PRO account and get more features.
You may be wondering about my email marketing secret weapon… look no further!
Flodesk is the ONLY email marketing software that I know of (and love) that charges you a FLAT fee per month, whether your list grows or not.
It also has a lot of templates so that you can send out beautiful and highly-converting emails. If you use my link, you will save 50% FOR LIFE, making this only $19 per month.
You’ll also get a free trial.
If you are selling digital courses, creating webinars, or doing anything that requires video, Vimeo is the way to go.
Vimeo has a free plan to get you started, but the Plus plan and above will get you going.
Because of Vimeo, we don’t have to spend hundreds (or thousands!) on webinar platforms, and we also use it to host the video lessons within our programs.
It has no ads, and you have access to the video controls PLUS advanced analytics. *and the Plus plan is only $7 per month, which is less if you pay it per year!*
Our programs are self-hosted on WordPress with the most amazing Learning Management System: LearnDash.
We switched to LearnDash because we don’t enjoy limits on how many students can enroll or how we can customize the portal. We also didn’t enjoy having to pay extra every time our business grew.
LearnDash is a one-time payment (super low, too), unlimited students, we can customize everything, and it gives us more options so that we can serve our clients and students better.
Put it this way: NO LIMITS and AUTOMATION.
Tailwind is the best software out there that allows us to schedule pins for ourselves and our clients, analyze data, improve our Pinterest marketing strategies, schedule Instagram posts, and much more.
Depending on what plan you choose, you will have access to smart analytics that will help you make money-making decisions for your Pinterest strategy.
You can also join Tribes which will give you more exposure for your pins.
Repins = Traffic
