This is a resource page where you can quickly find all the recommended services, products, and companies that I recommend and/or use myself.
I created this page so that everything will be in one place and easy to navigate.
Disclosure- some of the links below are affiliate links. I would never recommend a product or service that I have not tried out and find worthwhile.
Websites that Will Save You Money
Ebates is a free site where you can sign up and shop through your special ebates link where you will earn cash-back for purchases you make. Four times a year or more, they will mail you a Big Fat Check, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you’d prefer. Or you can have the money sent to your favorite charity. Ebates get a commission from the stores when you make a purchase. Instead of keeping that money – like almost all other sites do – they share it with you!
Ibotta You will start with $10.00 in your account if you sign up through my affiliate link. Ibotta is a phone app that allows you to scan your store receipts and get cash back for purchases you make. One nice thing about Ibotta, a lot of their rebates are for “any brand” items. So if you buy milk, bread, eggs, bananas, etc. from almost any grocery store, you can earn cash back. They also have some pretty nice cash back options for stores like Sephora and Target.
Swagbucks is an all-in-one money-making machine. You can take surveys, shop, play games, watch T.V. and more, all while earning “swagbucks.” You can turn your Swagbucks into gift cards or have the money deposited into your paypal account. See how I use Swagbucks here.
Bluehost I use Bluehost as my private domain host. They have excellent customer service (I know, I’ve contacted them a few times), and their hosting rates are super cheap. Plus you can get a private domain name and a corresponding email account with them.
Board Booster I have increased my page views fast by using Board Booster for pinterest. You can start with a free trial and plans start at just $5 a month. This tool is well worth the investment if you are serious about driving traffic to your blog.
Beautiful Dawn Tiffany over at Beautiful Dawn is such a sweetie. She designed this beautiful site for me and her customer service is superb. Check out her pre-made website templates, most only at $39!
Tailwind I use Tailwind to schedule my pins for my Pinterest boards. Tailwind lets me schedule them weeks in advance and it chooses the most popular times for my pins to be seen. Or, if you prefer, you can schedule them on your own timeframe. The best part? TAILWIND IS FREE !! 🙂
PicMonkey photo editor: this is your photo on awesome juice I use PicMonkey to create many of my Pinterest pins, Instagram posts, graphics for the blog, YouTube thumbnails, and other photo editing needs. PicMonkey is free to use, although I upgraded to the deluxe version for more fonts and photo options.
Creative Market I use Creative Market to find high quality stock photos. I’ve tried taking some myself but find that professionals do it SO MUCH BETTER! I guess that’s why they are professionals! haha. My favorite Creative Market sellers are Dear Miss Modern and Floral Deco. There are also a ton of free downloads here too like stock photos, pretty fonts, website layouts, and more.
Ways to Earn a Side Income
The Selling Family Jessica and Cliff Larrew created the ultimate selling-on-Amazon guide. I’ve sold used books on Amazon for years but when I was ready to dive into selling FBA (Amazon ships it for me) on Amazon I used The Selling Family training course to ramp up my business. They have broken it down into easy sections and saved me a boatload of time figuring out the complicated process of selling FBA on Amazon. Jessica and Cliff make 6 figures selling on Amazon FBA and they teach you how to do it to. I can already see that by following their advice, I’m well on my way to making some serious income there too.
