Welcome to my toolkit!
These are the tools I use on a regular basis for my websites. I’ve tried hundreds so this is my list of those I find truly useful.
Yes, there are plenty others out there – but I’ve not listed them. A lot of these tools are free, some are free with an upgrade and others are paid. Where possible – I have included a free version as an alternative as I used mostly free when I started out.
Where paid, I’ve included a link. Some of these are an affiliate link, some I’ve just linked straight through. Just being honest here, I like to make sure my sites fund themselves – what I’ve not done is added a list full of affiliate links or those that give a bigger commission. If it’s good, if I use it, if it’s worked for me – it’s on this list.
Some of these tools involve web browser plugins. I use all of these on Google Chrome. I’ve no idea if they work on other Browsers, but if in doubt – stick to Chrome.
This page is likely to change over time as I refine my tactics, so check back!
