Email Software

  • Active Campaign – It’s the one I use. It has a 14 day free trial but no free tier. But if you’re serious about email (it’s my favourite marketing method), it is the best value for money of the paid options. Great deliverability (your emails don’t get sent to spam), and easy to set up automations and tags.

Graphic Design

  • Canva – The best image creation site if you’re doing your own designs. They have templates for every platform and for a million other things. The quickest and most straightforward way to make eye-catching visual content for your brand.


  • Pexels – Tons of royalty free stock images. Free to use and plenty of images to choose from.
  • Pixabay – Same kind of deal as Pexels. A lot of the images are the same as Pexels but still worth checking out.
