I’ve gathered together a comprehensive list of resources that every holistic business owner needs to succeed. Some of these links are affiliate links, but every one comes highly recommended by me because I use them and love them.
Email Marketing Resources
ConvertKit is my new favorite because it is made for bloggers like myself and it has a large amount of functionality without the difficulty level that usually comes with that many capabilities.
Aweber is my other favorite because you can create an unlimited number of opt in forms with each one having its own autoresponder series. It is relatively easy to use and has a lot of great built in stuff that makes your life easier and makes your marketing more effective. It is mpre difficult to use than ConvertKit though. Try it out today – You’re first month only costs $1!
Images & Graphics
Never underestimate the power of a great image! It can make or break your marketing.
Pixabay – This is an awesome site to find public domain images, which means they are all free and you are not required to credit the photographer.
FreeDitialPhotos – This is the next place I go to when searching for images. All the images are free (for the smallest size, which is usually fine for blogs, websites, etc), but you are required to credit the photographer.
iStockPhoto – When I need a super quality image and I don’t want to have to credit the image, I always use iStock. That’s because you can find everything you are looking for and the images are high quality. You will have to pay money for these photos, but if you are only using them online, you don’t need to buy the high resolution option, which is more expensive.
DreamsTime – This is another great place for photos because they have a free section and they also have images you can purchase. The prices are much less than iStock, although the selection is not as good – but still a great resource.
123 Employee – If you need some virtual assistance (tasks that can be done digitally from any location), this is a great resource. For as low as $8/hour, you can get a reliable virtual assistant who does decent work. If you are looking for a top-notch professional, this is not your answer, but for menial tasks, you can’t beat this.
Resume Writing Tips – This is one of the books I’ve published: Resume Help For Success: Simple Resume Writing Tips, Resume Examples & Sample Cover Letters. It’ll help you draft your resume and cover letter quickly and easily.
Holistic Gift Ideas
Enchant ~ Designs for the Soul – This is where I sell my artwork, which is all beautifully displayed on useable products, like journals, notecards and bookmarks. And if you love everything holistic like I do, this should be right up your ally.
