My Resource Library
Here is a list of resources that I absolutely love and cannot possibly run my creative business without. I use each of these tools on a daily basis and highly recommend them to anybody wanting to start their own creative business.
Squarespace is the platform that hosts my website, and I couldn't have chosen a better company to back me up for it. I'm sure you've heard this a thousand times before from so many other people, but there are a hundred different reasons why we love it here. They are an awesome company, first and foremost, that make it their mission to bring the very best to their customers. They have so many different templates to choose from, their websites are easily customizable to your own taste, and the SEO is super user-friendly (As long as you follow their tips, you get found on Google in their first couple pages - tried and tested as a new blog).
Creative Market is my all-time favorite place to simply search around for awesome designs, fonts, photos, art-mockups, illustrations, and logo elements. Seriously, they have everything there at very affordable prices! Plus, whenever I buy a product from there, I am supporting other creatives doing what they love - And that is a sort of business practice I am all for! If you like all the little finishing touches I've added to my website, this is the place where I got it. Highly recommend.
Boardbooster is my favorite automation tool for growing my Pinterest. Since I've started using Boardbooster, my Pinterest followers have been growing faster than ever, my Pinterest profile views have skyrocketed to the thousands, and the majority of my website's traffic has originated from Pinterest itself. It's definitely one of the best investments I've made so far in my creative business, especially since it's only $5 per month. Definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to delve into growing their Pinterest. You can try it out here for one month free as well.
Canva is a FREE website where you can easily create layouts for your graphics. I love the wide range of templates they have on there so you can pick and choose, whichever different theme or look you are going for next.
Unsplash is a website that showcases amazing FREE stock photos from talented photographers around the world. I constantly browse around their site, looking for and saving new photos that I may need in the future for whatever project I have next in mind.
