Tools and resources for women therapists and coaches.
I’ve tried countless apps to find the ones I like and worth the investment! It’s very stressful for me to waste time, especially since I started my own business, so I wanted to find tools to help me get organized, save time and make my business more professional. “What do I need to start my online business?” is the question I ask myself most often. Well, here’s a list of my favorites that I can’t live without!
*Some of the links on this page and on my website are affiliate links, which means I might get a small commission when you buy something using my link.
I only recommend resources and tools that I use and love. I hope you enjoy these recommendations as much as I do!
Cloudways is one of the most well-known, trusted hosting companies I’ve tried. Not only do they have very good customer service, but the performance and speed of the site hosted with them surpass the rest. This is my number one recommendation for clients for hosting their WordPress website.
Hosterion is my recommendation for women entrepreneurs that have a business in Romania. Most of the clients with whom I have collaborated to create websites use hosting and domain from Hosterion. They have very good and fast customer service, the hosting is reliable and you can buy domains with a variety of extensions from them.
Elementor is one of the most popular page builders for WordPress. Since I started working with clients, I’ve tested quite a few themes and page builders, and I can confidently say that Elementor Pro is the most affordable, intuitive, and complete option. It’s a great choice if you want to build your own site.
The top place where you can find and choose premium WordPress themes is Themeforest. It has a wide range of premium themes for all kinds of niches and website types. You can find professional WordPress Themes & Website Templates for any project.
WoodMart is a premium theme optimized for creating WooCommerce online stores that provides a super-fast interface for the ultimate user experience. It doesn’t require tons of plugins to run your online store. The most important features come out of the box and you don’t need to purchase anything extra.
Mailerlite is an email marketing service that helps you manage your email list, write newsletters, automate lead generation processes, etc. It’s very easy to use, has a free version up to 1000 subscribers – perfect if you’re just starting out. And in the free version it has a lot of options that other email marketing services offer for a fee.
Astra is a very popular WordPress theme, it’s fast and gives you the ability to customize it very easily. Together with Elementor Pro, it gives you unlimited options to create anything in WordPress (online shops, business websites, blogs, etc.). It’s my recommendation for anyone who wants to make their own website and has no technical knowledge.
Creative Market’s community members buy and sell creative assets for use in design and marketing projects. Assets include vector graphics, website templates, stock photography, document templates, fonts, and miscellaneous creative goods.
Creative Market is a massive online library of graphic resources, templates, fonts, patterns and so much more you can use in your business!
Canva is a DIY graphic design platform that helps you keep your brand aligned across all the different platforms you communicate in (website, social media, physical materials, etc.). They have lots of designs to choose from or you can create from scratch what you want using thousands of photos and elements.
MemberVault is a platform where you can host the courses that you sell on your website. While I can help you with setting up a course platform, I understand that you may not have a budget for this, not sure if it will be profitable, that you want to try making courses. For all these situations I confidently recommend MemberVault with the cheapest plan.
Calendly is an app for scheduling appointments, meetings, and events. Its goal is to eliminate the problematic back-and-forth when trying to nail downtimes. Rather than email chains and phone tags, you can send your availability with a Calendly link (even if the people booking time with you don’t use Calendly).
Skillshare is an online learning platform with thousands of creative courses and classes taught by experts to help you learn new skills. Their membership pricing is affordable and you have access to courses from different areas and topics like marketing, SEO, social media, Pinterest, illustration, design, photography, video, freelancing, and more.
