I love Ally – it is the perfect place to hold some emergency money in case you need it (while earning high interest!)

Personal Capital

The best way I have found to keep track of all my accounts while seeing the big-picture view of my savings. 

robinhood financial app | compoundingjoy
Robinhood is another fun financial app – and definitely another place to store away a bit of money with boundaries to “play” if you feel the need – I love where the different categories lead your personality to a type of investing that best suits you.
Join Robinhood and we'll both get a stock like Apple, Ford, or Sprint for free.

BLOG TOOLS

Divi WordPress Theme

I use the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes for my website.  I started out with another WordPress Theme and had many issues and glitches that nobody could figure out! I'm soooooo happy with how easy and clean Divi is.  It's very intuitive.

BUILD YOUR LIST!

I use Convert Kit for all emails, for building my subscriber list, for segmenting and tagging members – This is by far the best email list building system I have seen. It's intuitive, yet powerful.

social warfare plugin | compounding joy

Social Warfare

You know what they say… sharing is caring! This is a great plug-in to use for optimization and customization of your sharing buttons. I love how you can make the buttons the colors of your brand.

Jennifer Cohen | Virtual Assistant

I use Canva for all of my images that I create for my website, for Pinterest, for Instagram, for Facebook, for Twitter… you get the idea. I have owned and used Photoshop, and Canva by far has everything I need and is much simpler to use, without being “dumbed down” (if you know what I mean). I personally use Canva for Work, however, there is a free version that many people use and are very successful with.

Web Hosting

SiteGround is where I purchased my domain name and where my site is hosted. It has yet to go down, and the speed is always solid. I have ONLY heard wonderful things about this company, and I can attest to the compliments!

Tailwind Visual Marketing Suite

Tailwind can save HOURS AND HOURS of your time! This is the greatest scheduling tool (I use both Tailwind and BoardBooster – I will tell you that Tailwind is an “official” app to be used with Pinterest.) AND… Tailwind is now an Instagram scheduler as well. Tailwind Tribes, which you have access to via your membership, has increased traffic to my site ten-fold! Tailwind is now giving members 30 days of analytics instead of only 7!

board booster logoBoard Booster is the scheduling tool I use for looping pins, random campaigns as well as scheduled campaigns.  I also use it for the pin mover and pin doctor abilities. It has boosted my traffic – and the analytics to prove it! Get the free trial.
