Tools and Software
I love Boardbooster and it’s the first Pinterest automation tool I chose to use. I later joined Tailwind, which I also love, but I refuse to leave BoardBooster.
I use Tailwind to share my content to my top performing group boards. I belong to over 50 awesome group boards, so manually pinning to all those boards is a HUGE time suck! Tailwind makes sure that all boards are covered and I don't miss any days. Click here to get $15 off your new account with Tailwind
SumoMe is a plugin that allows you to get more fans of your awesome stuff to sign up for your offers. Thus growing your greatest asset as a blogger - your email list.
I recently purchased the Social Warfare plug-in that worked better for me for showing the social proof of how many times a particular page or post was shared and to which social platform.
ConvertKit is the first email auto-responder that was created with bloggers in mind. It allows you to seamlessly and easily create an automated email sequence that will be triggered anytime someone signs up for your newsletter or other offering.
I switched my email autoresponder to Active Campaign because of the usability of the platform. It's a drag and drop setup and works similar to ClickFunnels.
Click Funnels is basically the gold standard of funnel building software. It's platform is an easy to use, drag and drop format to create stunning landing pages to offer your freebies and products.
Instapage is another landing page software. It's also very easy to use and specializes in beautifully designed, "done for you" landing pages. And the lower price is also an added benefit.
Buffer is what I use to set my social media posts on auto-pilot. I simply sit down once a week and fill up my queue with my posts for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in very little time.
JetPack is a plugin for WordPress and it works similarly to Google Analytics in that it gives your site states right in your WordPress dashboard. It also provides security for your site and protects your site from attacks.
This free app will show you your blog's information like your real time stats right from your phone. By the way, Google Analytics has an app too. But the WordPress App (if you have a WordPress blog) is like your blog on the go.
