Stop dreaming. Start doing.
Over the past thirteen years, as I’ve built up my businesses and websites, I’ve gone through various tools, products, and services, always looking for those that are the best in order to do just what I need them to do.
Part of my strategy is that whatever I use, it needs to be easy to learn and implement. Why easy? Because with so much else to do, steep learning curves aren’t welcome. Creating content takes time. It needs to take time to be done properly. Therefore having the right ‘easy’ tools is so important.
There are several new resources that I'm still looking at, but they are showing great promise. I've recently reviewed these:
I’ll share with you exactly what I am using, and have been using for years. These have stood the test of time. Many have free plans so that you can try them out. Some have free forever plans (I love those). Others have plans that are priced better than others, because price isn’t always a good indication of quality.
Again, for me, easy of use …. and quality … are of utmost importance.
Quality is hard to find. With all the ‘noise’ and ‘chatter’ about what the BEST is (just ask Google), finding that BEST takes time, effort, and money. I went through lots of time and effort to find just what was right for me. And, I went through money, as I subscribed to this one and that one.
I’ve put together my BEST blogging tools. You'll actually find them posted on my recipe site, since that's the place most bloggers would find them (NOTE: always go where 'your people' are!).
Being an entrepreneur often means being alone in your research, in your decisions, and in your implementation. These tools make that a bit easier. I’ve done the research, most have free plans so you can check out your decisions, and if you need help in implementing them, they all have fantastic support available. And, I’m always available for help as well.
