In this following list, I am sharing my most favourite blogging, biz and writing tools & tips I use daily (or almost every day) in my freelance creative business and blog. For affiliate details, see my Disclaimer.


BLOGGING

Domain Purchase: Namecheap: A reliable platform to purchase affordable domains (website addresses) and site security licences (SSL).

EMAIL MANAGEMENT & MARKETING

Email Marketing: Flodesk: An intuitive, user-friendly email marketing platform where you can create visually beautiful emails without needing any coding skills whatsoever. Take their free trial out for a spin, or receive 50% off the paid plan using my code: ARIETTE.
