Online Business Tools & Resources
to propel you forward in your spiritual business journey!
Essential Business-Growing Tools
Mailchimp was my beginner email marketing platform. They have a free plan (which I used) where you can have up to 2000 Subscribers. They also have pay-as-you-go options, which work out to be cheaper for low-volume clients, whilst also giving you some included extras such as automation and integration options. The platform is super easy to use and they have an amazing section for email templates making it very easy to curate good-looking emails effortlessly.
Convertkit is my email marketing provider that I currently use now, and I’m IN LOVE with it! It’s super easy to use for setting up email sequences, automation, tagging people in my list, and more! However I won’t lie, it is on the pricey side of email marketing platforms. And yes I admit, it’s harder to make your emails look visually good because they don’t have any visual email templates you can build off of like mailchimp does (i miss that) because it’s a bit more tech-savvy. Ultimately though, I found Convertkit as the perfect platform for me for my needs of creating sales funnels, setting up automation, and cross-platform integration.
I switched over to Convertkit from Mailchimp when I was ready to invest lots in my email strategy building.
Leadpages is a super handy drag and drop landing page creation website tool that I use for creating nifty registration pages, email opt-in boxes, and thank-you pages. It automatically syncs up with your email marketing system (whichever email provider you’re signed up with) so you can track and systemize your lead-generation sign-ups.
Namecheap is where I purchased all my domains and hosting packages from. It’s an awesome place to purchase a domain as well as site hosting for reasonable prices. They have an awesome knowledgebase on their website where they give you simple step-by-step instructions on how to do the technical overwhelming jazz. If that doesn’t do it’s justice, their customer support is phenomenal! If you can’t do something from your end, they can do those things for you from their end! The only downside to Namecheap is that you have to purchase your Domain, Hosting Package and SSL Certificates all separately.
(I would only recommend Namecheap for those who rank at level 10 for tech-savviness and know how to do web development & web design from the inside out!)
BlueHost is the domain & hosting platform I set up all of my web design clients with. Bluehost is the easiest and by far the best WordPress Hosting + Integration Platform on the market. It’s super easy to navigate and to actually set up the website hosting is only a matter of a few simple steps. You can transfer your domain that you bought from elsewhere to Bluehost and they provide an SSL Certificate to your domain for FREE! The best part about Bluehost is that your domain, Hosting Package and SSL Certificates all come together in one payment unlike how with Namecheap, you have to purchase everything separately.

E-commerce & Payment Platforms
Shopify is another payment platform where you can also create a website. I recommend using Shopify for people who plan on selling lots of things on their website, like if you want an online retail store!
WooCommerce is the top e-commerce website plug-in for WordPress Users like myself. Woo-commerce is the most extensive e-commerce plug-in with the most wordpress theme integrations out there! Woo-Commerce’s website even has over 50 other plug-in extensions exclusively for selling different kinds of products like online courses and memberships as examples! It’s super easy to start selling products on your site if you’re website platform is WordPress.
Productivity & Organizational Tools
Google Calendar is my primary online calendar I use. To be completely honest, I am obsessed with my Google Calendar (for managing business and family life).
