Steal My Toolbox
It’s really important to use the right tools and services. I’ve tried a ton of them and these are the ones I use today.
I recommend Cloudways for web hosting. It’s a great plan with quick chat support and good value. Click this special link to get a free 3-day trial.
Bluehost hosting has been a popular choice for those starting out and needs a provider that offers all the basic necessities for starting a website or a blog.
I use Namecheap for all my domain purchases – easy to use and great prices
ShareASale is the other affiliate network I use a lot. They are also great and if you join ShareASale, you typically have what you need.
Involve Asia is one of the best affiliate networks. You will find a ton of eCommerce stores here to promote for almost any niche out there.
AtlasVPN is the fastest and most reliable VPN you can get. It’s a little more pricy but it’s also the best. I use it daily to make sure I access Google from a U.S. address (to make sure I find the best topics to write on). It costs $6-7 with this discounted link.
Surfshark is a cheaper alternative to AtlasVPN. They are also VERY reliable and just a little bit slower. But they are much cheaper ($2 /mth).
This is a good keyword tool for finding underserved topics.
It’s a great way to find new ideas and get some quick ideas for your site.
Grammarly detects grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, and style mistakes as you write. Use this special link to get a 20% discount.
I also use ProWritingAid because it provides more in-depth reports to help me strengthen my writing. Use this special link to get a 20% discount.
Images add up to 60% of the average web page’s total load time. For that reason, by taking care of something as simple as optimizing them, you can get your site to load even twice as fast.
I use Canva extensively for my design templates. Use this special link to get a FREE 30-day trial.
If you’re having trouble managing the anxiety that social media causes, I highly recommend the Freedom app. It blocks whatever sites/apps you want on all your devices for timed sessions of your choosing.
If you’re having a live session, I suggest you download the KRISP app. It’s a noise-canceling app that blocks all background noise for BOTH mic & speaker. It has a 30-day free trial.
