Top Two Must-Haves for Your website

WEBSITE BUILDER

Showit

I love the drag & drop feature of Showit mainly because when I create I want to put things where I want - I don't want to be confined to a table or certain structure. The ability to create and design in this platform is AMAZING, and the community of designers are amazing

CRM (INVOICING, CONTRACTS)

Honeybook

I needed a secure and professional way to accept payments and send contracts. They also have some pre-made contract templates that helped me get started! My affiliate link will give you $1/month for your first 6 months! Plus, I'll embed your contact form onto your Showit site for FREE!

GROW YOUR EMAIL LIST

Email Marketing Options

Convertkit

I started with Convertkit (honestly because it was free). I could create forms, put them on my webstie and start building my email list. I could send out emails too without paying for a plan. I think it is PERFECT for people just starting out!

TRY IT OUT!

Flodesk

When I was ready to really start focusing on emails, I switched to Flodesk. I love the different layouts and templates they have, and there is an option to add checkouts to emails as well. This is PERFECT for selling products via email.

Canva

I love using Canva to create quick Instagram graphics and story layouts, Pinterest graphics, and I use it to create color palettes!
