1 & 1 – Owning your own little slice of the web through a self-hosted website or blog is pretty awesome. 1 & 1 makes it easy and affordable. As a bonus, your domain name is free! I have also come to love their support team.
WordPress.org – Everyone has what they love. I am a WordPress girl. Being honest, I’ve never tried anything else. It’s super easy to learn and there are some pretty cool WordPress hacks around to simplify things.
Themes by A Prettier Web – I’m going to be completely honest with you. I don’t follow the pack. So many of my freelance writer friends swear by a specific theme. I’m sure it’s great, but I like to be different. I have come to love the Boss Lady theme I found by A Prettier Web. I searched Etsy up and down until I found the perfect theme. I can honestly say I am 100% satisfied!
PicMonkey – I am big on using Photoshop, but when I’m looking for quick and easy, PicMonkey is the winning ticket.
Creative Market – If you need stock photos or virtually any other visual content, Creative Market is full of awesome creations just for you. I love everything I find there.
MailerLite – Truthfully, I haven’t played with MailerLite yet. I have read plenty of reviews that label them a solid choice for an email service. The best part is they’re free for up to 1,000 subscribers.
FreshBooks – If you’re a freelancer or online business owner, you’re going to need a way to manage your finances. I love FreshBooks. It’s easy to use and is packed with features.
Trello – Trello is my favorite tool. I use it to organize every aspect of my business and life.
Longtail Pro – If you’re using keywords as part of your SEO strategy, I love Longtail Pro. I find it to be easy to use and I love being told the keywords I should be using.
Hootsuite – Remembering to post on social media doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Hootsuite works with all the popular networks and I love how easy it is to use.
Tailwind – Tailwind is a scheduler for Pinterest. I’m still learning it, but I love the analytics and tribes you can access.
Grammarly – If you write, you will want to be sure your writing is in good form. Grammarly checks it over for you. This is one of my favorite tools as a freelancer.
