Favorite Resources

My favorite tools, apps and other resources I use to get the job done.


Online Marketing

Here are the best tools in my belt and box that help me get my daily business tasks done — the ones like list building that really matter in the growth of an online business.

Bluehost — Best place to register your new domain name and handle web hosting when you’re just getting started with an online business.

AWeber Email Marketing & Management — AWeber develops and runs an opt-in email marketing service used by over 120,000+ small businesses, bloggers and entrepreneurs around the globe. I love that they offer a 30-day free trial with full features. Grab your AWeber trial now.

Social Warfare plugin — A beautiful and responsive, fast-loading WordPress plugin that beefs up your social shares. Social Warfare adds easy-to-customize social share buttons on any WordPress Page or Post that allow your readers to share on their favorite social channels.


Merch

Sticker Mule — Beautiful stickers, labels, and more. A great way to spread that word about your business. You can hand out free stickers — a marketing tactic that fans or your best clients/customers will love — or design branded pieces to sell. Either way, you’ve got something small and easy to have on hand that people love. Grab $10 free of your next Sticker Mule order!


Just for Fun

PostFly box — A monthly subscription box that delivers fly fishing flies, stickers and other gear and goods to your door. I purchased a gift subscription for my wife, an outdoors writer that’s full of adventure.

(Okay, this doesn’t have anything to do with visual marketing or building an online business, but I wouldn’t endorse anything I don’t love and/or use. The products you get each month are awesome — just in case you dig fly fishing or you need a gift idea for someone that does.)
