Resources for Course Creators & Online Biz Owners
Some links may be affiliate links, all are resources I currently use or heartily recommend because I’ve used them at other stages.
Learning Management Systems
A learning management system can be used for anything from housing courses and online programs, all the way to organizing your digital assets.
MemberVault – a fantastic community, really engaged owners always working to make it better, and free for the first 100 users so you can get a good feel for the service before investing.
It’s not secret I’m a fan of WordPress. Having a great host is a must!
Siteground – my current host for all my sites.
WPEngine – this is who I used to use when my sites had a lot more content. Not cheap, but top notch. This gets your first 3 months free!
GoDaddy – I’ve never used their hosting (that I remember!) but do use them for some of my domains. I’ve heard their bookkeeping is decent, too.
Design + Branding
Adobe Creative Cloud – I’m a long time user. There’s nothing better. I currently use Spark and Rush every week and for more intense projects, Photoshop and InDesign.
Canva – not wanting the full power of Adobe? Just a dabbler? Canva is your new best friend. All my templates are Canva friendly!
Backblaze – my entire computer/hard drive is backed up everyday. Should it blow up, be stolen, have a massive hard drive failure, they can overnight a new hard drive asap. You can also download files when you’re not at your computer in a pinch.
