Tools for Entrepreneurs
Building a creative business that I'm in control of has been one of the most challenging and rewarding projects of my life.
Here are the tools that I use to make it all work.
Some of the links on this page are affiliate links, which means that if you follow them and make a purchase, I get a commission at no extra cost to you.
The one you're on right now:
This is a good option if you want to take advantage of the large marketplace of WordPress plugins in order to customize your site's functionality to meet your needs.
That worked well, but when I realized I wanted more of a community focus to the online learning experience, I decided to shift to the Mighty Networks platform for that branch of my online business.
The course and community platform that I use:
For my online courses and community, I use Mighty Networks.
I used to host and sell my courses from this site, but there came a time when I wanted to focus on higher-quality engagement.
I wanted to interact with students more, and I wanted students to be able to interact with and learn from each other.
Since Mighty Networks comes at the learning experience from a community-first standpoint (with great functionality for stand-alone courses as well), it made the switch easy for me.
For my email newsletter, I use ConvertKit. About three years ago I switched from Mailchimp, and I've never regretted it. I appreciate the way they support the success of creators through their free publication (Tradecraft) and with built-in selling features coming soon (Commerce).
