THINKIFIC // FOR HOSTING ONLINE COURSES + MEMBERSHIPS
After looking at pretty much every. single. course. hosting. platform on the internet - Thinkific. It’s user friendly, has really great pricing options when you’re starting out, and given I had a list of things (as long as both of my arms) of things I needed/wanted my course and membership platform to be able to do - Thinkific hits every single one 🙌🏼.
SENDOWL // MY #1 FOR SELLING digital PRODUCTS
…ok, and for client payments. Pretty much 90% (or more) of my income right now comes through SendOwl. It’s the best online checkout I’ve found that allows me to take client payments (both in full payments and monthly instalments when agreed), recurring membership payments, book sales, course sales… You name it, SendOwl can do it.
ACTIVECAMPAIGN // MY FAVE PLATFORM FOR BUILDING AN EMAIL LIST
Having tried a tonne ActiveCampaign is my favourite way for emailing subscribers and building my email list. It’s the most user friendly site I’ve found with tonnes of features helping you automate things like sales and ‘segmenting’ people into different groups (meaning you can email different people based on their interests/purchases etc).
CREATIVE MARKET // best SITE FOR buying new FONTS
If I need a new font (or some cool new graphics to spruce up one of my designs) the first place I head to is Creative Market. They’ve an awesome (and huge) range to choose from, and when you sign up they even send you six new fonts/graphics to download each week for free!
ACUITY // MY #1 FOR booking clients + scheduling calls
Fab for when you need to book calls with clients (and potential clients) yet don’t want to back and forth of dozens of times trying to find a time when you’re both free - Acuity does it all for you. You can even make it so that when someone does arrange a call with you they also pay you for that service/call for it at the same time - perfect for one off coaching calls.
