The Creative Boss Resources

Hosting:

For hosting, I wanted a company that I could start out with a small and affordable plan and scale up as needed, almost seamlessly. After much research, I decided to go with A Small Orange and couldn’t be happier.

WordPress Theme:

Building great websites starts with a solid foundation. That is why we rely on Divi to build all of our websites and those of our clients.

Email Marketing: 

If you are looking for a robust and super affordable email marketing platform, I recommend MailerLite, it’s even free for your first 1,000 subscribers and it includes automation and landing pages!

For creating great opt-in boxes and promoting content upgrades, Easy Content Upgrades, is perfect for you.

Social Media Mangement:

Automating our social media presence is key to growth for our business. That is why we schedule and recycle our social media posts with SmaterQueue.

Photo Editing and Graphic Creation:

Creating graphics is where I have the most fun in my business. Hunting for great photos and fonts to use for a particular post is fun for me; maybe I am a little strange. But to create great looking graphics I have a few resources. For great stock photos and fonts I like to use Creative Market, there is something about supporting individual artists that just makes me feel good. For editing and creating stunning graphics I primarily use PhotoShop but in a pinch, I will use PicMonkey.

Productivity and Time Tracking:

It can be all too easy to get sucked into a project and lose track of time. I find it a valuable asset to track my time and know where I could cut time by creating more automated workflows or even outsourcing those tasks. For this, I use RescueTime, and it has been a game changer.

Copywriting & Copyediting:

One of the best investments I made for my business was to hire an editor. There is a lot that I can do by myself but having a second set of eyes review every piece of content before it goes live and helped my business grow tremendously. My go-to editor is Abbi from The Literary Scene.
