The tools I use to run my business

Welcome to the Project Risk Coach Resources section, a curated list of the tools and websites I strongly recommend for building and optimizing your business. Occasionally, people ask me about the tools I use to run my business. So, I decided to create this page.

Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust, an important disclosure:

Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

Toggl

togglimageI wanted a simple tool to track time for my Project Risk Coach projects.I signed up for the FREE version (the basic plan for teams of 5 or fewer is always free). I soon discovered the simplicity of Toggl.

You can quickly start the timer for activities and associate activities with projects. I love the dashboard, reporting, and tagging capabilities too. Check it out.

ConvertKit

I’ve tried different email list management and building systems. ConvertKit is the most intuitive.

ConvertKit makes managing your email list and setting up autoresponders so easy and user-friendly. Segmenting my email subscribers into groups so that they get content specific to their individual needs has never been more simple.

Bluehost

trusted-logos-bluehost-1My website — The Project Risk Coach — is hosted on Bluehost. Why? Because they make it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation. Bluehost is an easy-to-use and extremely affordable hosting platform.

You can use your Bluehost account to host multiple domains so there’s no need to pay more for hosting when you’re ready to start another website. Also, they provide outstanding customer service!

I highly recommend using Bluehost for your first website, and you can get started now at only $3.75/month.

Clicky

Clicky Web AnalyticsWhen I started blogging, I wanted an easy way to monitor, analyze, and react to my blog traffic (Google Analytics was more than I wanted to deal with). I have been using Clicky for four years now. There is rarely a day that goes by that I’m not looking at my Clicky Analytics which makes it easier for me to better understand the interest and needs of my customers.

OptinMonster

OptinMonster is my favorite tool for easily creating opt-in forms so visitors can quickly take advantage of my weekly tips, tools, and techniques as well as periodic series that I offer. The back-end environment is fantastic making it easy to connect to your favorite email service provider.
