TpT Tools I Use and Recommend

Thanks so much for visiting my page! I am excited you are here.  Throughout the past several years on TpT, I have collected a few amazing tools to stick in my TpT toolbox.  I have listed them here for you along with links to any blog posts that do further explanations.   Be sure to take a look around and contact me with any questions!

Social Media

Tailwind
Tailwind is an amazing service for scheduling pins on Pinterest.  When I started using Tailwind as part of my social media marketing, my sales skyrocketed.  Though it is a bit pricey ($100/year), I find it worth every. single. penny.  You can read all about “How Tailwind Made Me Love Pinterest Again” here.  I also want to point out that their customer service and willingness to grow is unparalleled.  I use this to manage pins for Pitch Publications.
Smarterqueue
I love Smarterqueue for scheduling Facebook posts!  In the future they hope to add Pinterest and Instagram to their line up.  I can create my own library of posts as well as browse for new content to add to my library.  Facebook lets only a fraction of my followers see content so this allows me to post it more than once so that my followers will eventually see it.  They are a lot like Meet Edgar, but they are more affordable!  Also, they are constantly updating and it and adding features!
Facebook Tabs Addition
I use a cool app called https://fbapp.us. There is a paid version, but I use the free version to add Pinterest, Twitter, and YouTube links to my Facebook profile.

Website

Privacy Policy Creator
If you ever run giveaways or collect payment for services or products, you are probably going to need to legally have a privacy policy on your website. You can see mine here.  I don’t feature it prominently on my website, but I do link to it as legally needed.  To help me with the scary mumbo jumbo, I used a Privacy Policy Generator.  It was super easy to use and I just clicked through answering the questions and copy and pasted the text.
Dropbox
I use Dropbox to provide files to clients and to backup every. single. thing. on my computer.  It has saved me so many times with computers have failed.  Read more about Dropbox here!
Social Warfare
I use the plugin Social Warfare to show social shares and to put in custom pins, facebook and twitter images.
Real Favicon Generator
You need to have a favicon uploaded to your site.  I love this site for creating all the options!

 

Divi Website Theme
I love the Divi theme!  It creates building blocks (called divs, hence Divi) that you just put together to create gorgeous websites!  I design exclusively with this theme!
BigScoots Hosting
I exclusively use BigScoots hosting to manage all my websites and my clients’ websites.  You can read about my hosting services here or visit BigScoots and sign up for your own account!
Essential Grid Plugin
The Essential Grid plugin is AMAZING! I use it on the front of my website to scroll through products and blog posts, and I also use it to create a custom Instagram Link In Profile!

Courses

Smartphone Marketing School
Smartphone Marketing by Tabitha Carro is a course JAM PACKED with information.  This is the course you MUST get if you have an iPhone and need to find a way to maximize your time when on the go or away from your computer.   You will learn how to organize, create videos, images, and more.  I have been in the course 3 years and still am getting new information from her all the time!  More importantly, I’m learning how to maximize the time that would have otherwise been totally lost time (doctor’s waiting room anyone?).
Pinning Perfect
Pinterest is truly a game changer for getting the word out about your products. However if you have no idea what you are doing other than using Tailwind of course, check out Pinning Perfect.  I first took this course 2 years ago and have been so pleased at how the authors update the course based on the ever changing Pinterest best strategies. Pinning Perfect walks you from the very beginning of Pinterest (so 0 experience needed), but also provides advance strategies for those that have been around awhile.  The course also comes with a private Facebook group that has been invaluable in getting questions answered quickly by people who have direct contact with Pinterest.

Organization

Airtable
If you use nothing else from this list, use Airtable.  It is truly unbelievable for organizing information.  I use it to keep a master list of my products, to plan my week, track updates, track purchase orders, and more!
