PLANNING & PROCESSES
The Complete Blog Management Planner
Every blogger needs a process in order to nail down routines, eliminate distractions and get into solid work flows that produce results. Kim shares her very own system in this workbook including:
ConvertKit Email Marketing Service
Email marketing is every pro bloggers key to success. Having an email service that was designed with bloggers in-mind rather than every business under the sun makes your life easier and more efficient! I've been using Convertkit for years and they just keep getting better!
Starting at $29.00 per month!
If I could turn back time I would have started off on my own self-hosted WordPress.org site. Instead I was on a free blogging site and had to move everything over. Paying for hosting is a small price to pay to actually own your website. If you use free blog platforms it's like building your house on someone else's land and if they decide to boot you- you lose years of work.
For only $3.95 per month you can own your own website and domain!
