PLANNER
RIFLE PAPER CO

Time after time I always go back to Rifle Paper Co planners. It’s my go-to planner that never leaves my desk.

NOTEBOOKS
KIKKI K

Who doesn’t love notebooks? I use them for my business in different ways and love Kikki K ones!

BUSINESS MGMT
ASANA

I rely on Asana to organize pretty much every detail of my business from content calendar to client workflow templates. It’s an absoute must-have for me!

CRM
DUBSADO

The best CRM for service-based businesses (it even has a built-in scheduler *bye-bye Acuity*) and my holy grail! Read more here and use code junglesoul to get 20% off subscription.

GROW YOUR EMAIL LIST

_______

LEAD MAGNET QUIZZES
interact

Lead generation quizzes are the most fun way to attract your audience and grow your list. Interact is my preferred quiz builder. Take my Pinterest quiz HERE & read the post HERE.

_______

SCHEDULING
TAILWIND

The holy grail of Pinterest marketing equipped with scheduling, looping, tribes, analytics and more.

PIN OPTIMIZING
TASTY PINS

Plugin that specializes in optimizing for Pinterest – my preference. Features include disabling certain images for pinning, hiding multiple alternative images to your post and more.

pin looping
TAILWIND SMARTLOOP

Smartloop is part of Tailwind but deserves a separate mention. For those looking to reshare their best content automatically at optimal times, this is your solution!

SOCIAL MEDIA

_______

INSTAGRAM
LATER

Later makes planning and auto-publishing posts so easy. I especially love the preview function and hashtag collections.

FACEBOOK
FACEBOOK SCHEDULER

Did you know Facebook has a built-in scheduler? It’s actually pretty good and my posts are now doing better than before.

LONG-TIME FAVORITE
BUFFER

Buffer is just an all-around great social media scheduler & although I don’t use it on the regular at the moment, I still stand by it.

CREATE BANGING PINTEREST GRAPHICS

_______

pro software
ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE

With Adobe’s subscription model you can access your favorite programs without breaking the bank. My choice is the photography plan including Lightroom and Photoshop (plus 20GB of space), and it’s one of the subscriptions I’ll happily pay for.

QUICK & BEAUTIFUL
canva

Even though I’m a Photoshop fan, the beauty of Canva is that you don’t have to be creative or good at designing. You can whip up worksheets and social media graphics in minutes! Plus, the bulk of Canva’s functions are completely free to use.

canva alternative
easil

Easil is a drag-and-drop visual design tool very similar to Canva. It’s intuitive, has more advanced templates and layer editing. It’s more similar to Photoshop than any other DIY design tool. I also like that they offer a huge selection of stock images even in the free plan.

PROTECT YOUR BIZ

_______

PASSWORDS
LASTPASS

I use it to store and keep my personal passwords safe and collect passwords from clients. You only need to remember one password – the master password as they call it – to access the vault where passwords are saved.

SITE SECURITY
WORDFENCE

Protecting your website is about preventing and monitoring – that’s why installing a security plugin is so important. Wordfence is one of the two big security plugins and my personal favorite.

SITE BACKUP
UPDRAFTPLUS

 I love UpdraftPlus because you can set up automatic backups or do it manually, save them to your computer or to the cloud and restore right in the plugin (here’s to hoping you don’t have to).
