Strikingly - Easy Website Maker
Strikingly brings beautiful mobile websites to everyone.
I use it to make this and the website that you are on. It was a simple plug and play format. It took me less than an hour to have something ready to go. There were no headaches to navigate to building my website. The customer service is friendly and efficient. I should add, 4 months of full features free with a university ID.
This is where you go when the limitations of Mailchimp let you down. I spend a ton of time during the fall of 2019 working to use this software to automate workflows for my social media education business. It blows my mind all the things you can do with it.
Also, they are local to Chicago! I have gone to their office for a lot of events over the years. They are fantastic hosts and are constantly hiring!
Consultants: learn how to get more business via LinkedIn
I coach Leah Neaderthal's clients in her Pack Your Pipeline course on how to step up their game with their LinkedIn profiles and home feed post content via 1-on-1 calls, group implementation calls, and profile reviews. I engage her online community with regular social media content and support.
This is a competitor of Upwork and Fiverr but is highly selective of who they let on the platform
You can hire people from all around the world at various price points. I like that they make personal introductions to people who are good fits for my projects. The customer service is awesome and so is the founder. Within a day or two of signing up, the founder called me out of the blue to just say hi and see how I was doing. You can even book a call with him if you want.
I have been getting t-shirts, mugs, calendars, magnets, and business cards from them for over a decade! I was using them when they gave away 250 free business cards to everyone. The quality of the experience has gone up and so have the prices. I appreciate that they now offer design services for almost no money to their clients.
They also shipped another set of cards when they did not arrive in time. They definitely try to make things right when they can.
Selling: I have been selling on here for quite a few years. I have gotten to meet a lot of cool clients from around the country helping them with motivation, marketing, studying, and beyond. It's been an awesome platform to beta test business ideas.
Buying: You can hire people for all kinds of cool things. I hired two teenagers to make a rock video for my friends B-day! I hired a guy in south America to do admin work for me for one of my clients and it was a huge help.
Find tutors locally or online through this platform
Teachers: I think they tend to rip off tutors with their crazy fees but if you need to get experience working this new clients, this is not a bad spot to start if you are willing to work for very little.
Families: This is a great way for you to find and vet tutors in a range of subjects.
