​Recommended Business Resources

I often get asked for recommendations for various products and tools I use within my business. Here are some of my favourite and most-used business resources.

Tools:

wordpress.org

WordPress.org
This is our preferred software for building websites, including blogs and some membership sites.

Thrive Themes
Thrive offer a range of WordPress themes and plug-ins that make it easy to build a WordPress website that not only looks great, but functions well to. The Thrive Architect plug-in is one of my facourites. You may find it worthwhile to join as a member, where you'll get access to all of their themes and plug-ins.

WishList Member
​The WishList Member plug-in for WordPress is my preferred way to manage a WordPress-based membership site. It gives great flexibility and many options for customisation so you can build your members' area just as you want it.

New Kajabi
​Kajabi is another great tool for building a membership site, however this is a stand-alone platform, rather than being WordPress-based. Although less flexible than WishList Member, it creates a great site with good functionality.

​Zoom
​Zoom is one of ​the programs I use for running webinars. This is great for meetings where you want members to be able to see each other and where attendees can speak easily too, rather than just listening and watching. It's great for group Masterminds and Q&A sessions. 

GoToWebinar
​While more expensive than Zoom or Webinar Jam, GoToWebinar is still one of my favourites. It's a professional system that's easy to use, especially if you have larger groups on your webinars.

​Webinar Jam
​Webinar Jam is another good webinar program, with great functionality for running live webinars.

​Ever Webinar
​The sister-program to Webinar Jam, Ever Webinar is ideal for scheduling pre-recorded webinars or for showing replays of your live webinars.

​Camtasia
​This software is ideal for screen recordings and editing your videos. ​It can be used on both PCs and Macs, however most Mac users I know prefer Screenflow over Camtasia. If you use a Mac, perhaps try out both programs to see which you prefer.

​Screenflow
​Screenflow is for Mac users only. It's good for recording your screen and editing videos to give them that professional touch. 

Canva
​Canva is one of my all-time favourite tools. It makes it so easy to create good looking graphics for your social media accounts, blog posts, websites and even for use within presentations and products. Start with a free account and you may find that's all you ever need, although you can upgrade to a paid account for some added features.

​Google Analytics
​If you have any sort of website at all, you should be using Google Analytics. This is free to set up and use and will help you to track visitors to your site's pages and how they interact. With these statistics, you'll know where you can make changes to improve your site's results.
