Canva is a user-friendly graphic design platform that can help you to easily create social media graphics and many other content. To be honest, it was the one platform that changed my Instagram feed! Beyond social media, I use it for presentations, and anything else that requires images. There is a free and a paid version but I recommend the paid one, it is worth the price (under $15.00 per month). They have a free trial too.
Great tool to visually plan your posts, automatically post, save time by saving hashtags, and get analytics. There is a free and paid version. I also love their blog and newsletter, it has amazing content to move you forward in your social media expertises.

The Unconventional RD– How to start a website free tutorial*
After many attempts of starting a blog, following Erica Julson’s free tutorial helped me create this website in a very short amount of time.
Ready to get your website ready to start growing and monetizing? Katie Dodd’s program can help you do just that in only 2 months.
The first step into creating a blog is to find and register a name. There are many places to purchase your domain but this is the one I use. It is recommended that you purchase your name separate from your web hosting account, so it will be easy to move your website to a different hosting site in the future.
Even if you are not ready to start a website yet, I recommend you purchase your domain now. It will not be great to find out that your domain is taken when you are ready.
After the name, the next step to create a blog is to give it a place to exist, called web hosting. Site ground is easy to set up and provides good capabilities in terms of speed and security. Great for the beginner blogger. There is a monthly or yearly fee to use their services.
Now that you have a name and a webhost, you need a theme to create your website. Astra is a WordPress theme that is currently recommended. Astra is lightweight and fast. Overall I found it very user friendly. For this, there is a free and a paid version.
The last basic element to create your website is a tool to help you build your website. Elementor is very easy to use and helps you create a stunning and user friendly website. Again, there is a free and a paid version.
