I use squarepace for my website. If you have read some of my posts then you must already know how much I love it. It is user-friendly. Choosing a platform for your website is matter of personal preference and what you want to achieve. I switched from WordPress to Squarespace. I know you are wondering why and probably thinking- big mistake. WordPress is the most popular blogging platform and I get why. Sometimes I feel like switching back. There are things I miss about WordPress but there are also things I like about Squarespace. Conclusion - There’s no perfect platform. Just pick one you are comfortable with.
After trying out a number of online store platforms, I built my first store on Shopify. Shopify is great. It is intuitive and has great features.
I use MailChimp for e-mail marketing (I need to up my email marketing game). It easy to use and has a good number of features I am happy with.
After I had a little incident at home I decided to take my own advice and start using cloud storage. If you’ve ever lost your work then you know how much it sucks. I use Google Drive for storage of just about anything. From blog posts to stock images.
I don’t know what I would do without Google Calendar. I’m not even exaggerating. Google Calendar literally reminds me of what I need to do and when. I usually have a ton of things to do and end up forgetting about some.
I use NameCheap for my domains. Their domains are affordable just like the name suggests and they have wonderful customer service.
I use Planoly to schedule Instagram posts. It easy to use and allows you to auto-post.
You obviously don’t want to use a ‘@gmail.com’ email address for your business. Zoho allows you to create a custom domain email for free. I use Zoho for my custom domain email. If you are just starting or bootstrapped, this is a good deal.
