Crafts & DIY Blogging Resources
MailerLite – Email marketing service that helps you get subscribers for your business, manage sending email campaigns and automated campaigns, all that with detailed reports and super helpful customer support. The thing I love the most about it is that is totally free for the first 1000 active subscribers and without limits. Means you have access to same all features as the users with tons of subscribers that are paying for service. That is why I opted in for MailerLite at the first place.
Sticky Blogging SEO – A lot of blogging courses don’t deliver, but I can vouch that this SEO course is totally worth your time (and money). When I start blogging I’d heard about SEO, but I never really understood how to get my posts ranked on Google – or why it was supposed to be such a big deal. But then I took an SEO course designed just for bloggers and it changed my traffic forever. I took this course more than a year ago and doubled my organic traffic in just two months applying simple strategy. What I love about it, it is simple, not science as I thought SEO is, and it is designed for bloggers.
Canva – photo editing tool that I can not live without. I still use free version which allows me import my own photos, edit, make collage, create overlays, design pinnable images plus I can find free photos and illustrations I need to. With free account you also can import up to three brand colours you use and save them for a quick selection.
Etsy – marketplace where I first started to sell my quiet books (and still sell them). I just love the whole idea how they promote handcrafted work. How it works, you pay small fee for each listing plus commission when you sell a product. That is pretty fair and reasonable if you take in to account this is ‘plug and play’ and does not require any investment from your side. If you open store using this link you will earn 40 free listings.
