Get the Tools You Need.

I’ve been searchin the good ol’ interweb for years on all things digital marketing. Below are some of my favorites tools and resources for you to explore. 


Most of the tools below are free and are AMAZING! There are some tools listed that are low cost as well. Depending on where you are at in your business will determine which tools work best for you. Note any links with an asterisk (*) is an affiliate link. Most of these help run what I do DAILY. 

Canva – Confused about how to create your own graphics – let Canva take care of the work for you. Seriously everything you need to create a graphic for just about any reason on the Interent (and now offering PRINT? what?!) Easy frick’n peasy. They have a free version and paid version for more options.

Desygner – Similar to Canv, Desygner take out the design jargon and helps you create designs quick and easy for various online media. Free and Paid versions available. 

Adobe* – My go to program for everything heavy duty design. Main programs I use are Illustrator, Photoshop, and sometime InDesign. However, they have a HUGE selection of other programs for photgraphers, web developers, animators and so much more. 





Printful* – Need a place to sell some goods – this is what I use to create my online shop and connect it to my website. They make it super easy to create items based off the designs you upload. Check it out! Best part is there are no upfront payments – you pay when someone buys. BAM. 

Later* – My go to for scheduling social media. It started out for just Instagram, but has evolved to offer scheduling for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and even LinkedIn. It has Free and Paid versions

Hootsuite – I also have used Hootsuite in the past for social media scheduling and monitoring. Where Later lacks, Hootsuite picks up with its customizable dashboard where you can engage with posts directly. It has Free and Paid versions, I highly recommend testing it out for yourself. 

AirTable* – If you love color coordinated organization in the form of spreadsheets, calendars and more. Please take time to test out AirTable. I started using it this year (2019) and am still adjusting to all the awesomeness it provides. I use it to keep my content – especially Female Features – in order. 

Google Drive – I could not stay organized without this tool. Similar to the color organization AirTable provides, I can keep all my brand goods and client information in order. 

Google Calendar
