The Tools We Stand Behind...
Build Complex Apps Without Being a Coder
The Ultimate Web Application Builder
Check out Bubble - this is an amazing tool that allows you to build complex web and mobile apps. Bubble is perfect when WordPress can't quite cope with that amazing new idea you have. Beware though - it has a steep learning curve and best suits teenagers comfortable with technical concepts.
Properly Organise your First Business
Airtable is Awesome
Get your new business organised! Prettier than a spreadsheet and perfect for uploading bulk data directly to WordPress for Directory websites and bulk blog posts. Or list all your business ideas in a table and list the pros and cons of each one!
Find Content Ideas for your Blog or Business
Never Be Short of Ideas
Content Marketing (writing about, photographing, or videoing things your customers are interested in) is a very effective way to market your business but from time to time you can get short of ideas. Answer the Public has a cool interface that gives you writing ideas for your specific industry.
Compress your images to make your website run faster
Tiny Tool. Big Impact.
Tiny PNG is the easiest way to compress your .jpg, .png, and animated .png images so that your website runs faster. There is no change to the quality of your image. Just drag your image onto their site and download it to get a massive reduction in file size. For graphic savvy teenagers, there is also an awesome Photoshop plugin.
Promote Yourself Over and Over
The Social Media Time Saver
So you've written your latest awesome blog post. Now what? Promote it of course! But not just once - hundreds of times. Missingletter pulls out all the good bits from your blog post and schedules it for you throughout the year. Push a button and set and forget. We love it!
Want to Try Adwords?
Run a Successful Campaign using Yalla
When advertising using Google Adwords, your advert keywords are very important. They dictate whether your advert is successful or fails! This free tool from Yalla allows you to generate a list of keywords with any broad, broad match modifier, phrase, or exact match type variations. A massive time-saver for all teenager entrepreneurs who are testing Adwords.
Sell your Amateur Videos
Shoot Video. Get Paid.
Want to make some Teenager side money? Sell your videos to Newsflare. They buy a wide range from extreme weather videos to life hacks to funny animal clips. My brother sold a video about his cat and was paid $130 AUD.
Look up any Social Media Image Size
The Ad Size Dashboard
Find all the recommended header, advert, and video sizes for all Social Media platforms on this cool Dashboard from adJelly. Everything from Facebook Desktop News Feed size to Pinterest Promoted Pins size. Never get a blurry image again because you had the size wrong!
Easily Sell PDF Guides Online
Forget the Rest. This is the Best.
We searched high and low for decent software to sell and deliver PDFs - you name it we tried it, from Easy Digital Downloads to the WooCommerce add-on to Gumroad and many more but none of them can match SendOwl for speed of set-up, simplicity, security, and UI design. They easily won by far and we strongly recommend them for teenagers selling PDF Guides.
Use Voicemail to Connect with Customers
The Cold Calling Machine
Too shy to make a cold call? Supply Drop Cowboy with a .csv of mobile numbers and your recorded message. They send your recording directly to the voicemail of those mobiles. Fantastic for giving a quick intro of your start up and your reason for calling, and as reminders that your SaaS customer's subscription is about to expire.
Produce Professional Ebook Covers Yourself
You CAN create Covers Yourself
As a graphic designer, I highly recommend this software for teenage non-fiction authors. I basically get down on my knees and thank Cover Action Pro for existing. Yes there is a teeny, tiny learning curve if you haven't used Photoshop before but they have heaps of tutorials and their cover quality is so awesome, you'll be very pleased you used them.
Speed Up Your Website
Speed it Up.
As anyone in the game knows, speed means money. View these 5 minute video tutorials showing you how to improve the speed of your WordPress site. Website speed is so important that I typically do this myself over 2-3 days for each of my websites ensuring all of them can load within 1.5s (1s is the holy grail). If you have intermediate technical skills, you should do this yourself, because 3rd party speed services often fail to check your site after their changes.
