ActiveCampaign is my go-to email marketing program. If you've ever used other programs which charge you per subscriber even if it's the same person on two different lists that you offer, then you'll love AC because it does NOT do this. Also, AC allows you to create autoresponders and track link clicks. It is a powerful program.
Dropbox is one of my all-time favorite tools. It is definitely one of the tools that I have utilized the longest. Dropbox allows me to house files on another server, (in the cloud), so to speak and be able to access them from anywhere. It also allows me to allow my clients to share files with me without having to search through the millions of emails that I receive to find that specific email where they attached the file I need to complete their project. For me, it is a lifesaver and a great way to back up my files, websites, photos, and more!
Creative Market is a relatively new site that I have started using for design elements when working on client websites and other similar projects. It is a great place to purchase and even get free design elements such as fonts, background images, stock images, and more! It is reasonably priced and has so many beautiful options that are amazing.
StudioPress themes are the way to go if you want a professional looking WordPress website with plenty of options. I have been using StudioPress themes for years and love the Genesis framework and its many child themes to choose from as well. StudioPress also has an awesome help forum and customer service if you ever run into issues.
AcuityScheduling.com is a newer tool for me. I've only used it for a year, but I have grown to love it. It has a ton of options and allows you to set up various calendars, which you can sync with the calendar that you use such as Google calendar. You can also charge for times scheduled right through the scheduling tool if you are a consultant, coach, counselor, or anyone else who charges for their time on an hourly or package basis.
MomWebs website hosting has hosted my websites from day one. My favorite part of MomWebs hosting is their customer service. It is by far the best customer service I have ever received online. I am a huge fan of MomWebs for that fact alone. I also enjoy their reasonable pricing and how much they have helped me to understand the backend of my website and therefore contributed to the success of my business.
ClickFunnels is one of the newest tools that I have begun using with both myself and my clients. It is by far the most comprehensive marketing tool that I have come across. It will do so many things, but above all, it helps you to build out your marketing funnels from start to finish. Including design elements, integrating with your email marketing tools, and even the ability to set up a membership area if that is what you desire to offer to your clients or customers.
