Building an Online Business

Siteground: I currently host this website with Siteground, which has tremendous support and is fast, safe, and more powerful than many other hosts. It is the host I currently recommend for any WordPress website.

Bluehostimgres: I used Bluehost for many years to host all of my WordPress websites. It’s a great and inexpensive option to get started with, and highly recommended. Learn how to start a website in 5 steps.

ConvertKit-logoConvertKit: If you’re looking for a modern, simple, beautiful way to build an email list, educate your subscribers, and sell your products and services, ConvertKit is my new favorite option. It’s an email service provider built for bloggers and integrates with my Teachable courses seamlessly. Get started now


ThemeForest: Once you sign up for a Bluehost account, you’ll need a beautiful and responsive theme to use. ThemeForest is the perfect place to find one. They have thousands of wonderful themes for everything you could imagine. I’m using the Avada theme for Video School Online.

 Video Creation

Adobe Creative Cloud: When it comes to video editing, graphic design or any other creative project, I use the Adobe suite of applications like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Lightroom. They are the industry standard applications, and you can get them all as part of your Creative Cloud membership. If you need to stock footage, motion graphics, or video templates for any of your video projects, this is the place to go. If you need to learn how to use After Effects templates purchased from VideoHive, take this free course.

AudioJungle:audio-jungle-logo Finding music for video projects is often a pain. Songs sound too simple and digital. Or they sound like every other video you’ve ever seen. AudioJungle has thousands of options for an affordable price. It’s my go to site for purchasing stock music. The YouTube Music Library is also a growing source for free music.

screenflow_icon_finalScreenflow: This is my favorite screen recording application. I use it to make 90% of my online tutorials and courses. You can bring in music, photos, and other media to add to your videos. You can add graphics and titles.

Online Teaching Platforms

Udemy: This is my main platform for selling online courses. It’s very robust and easy-to use. They have the largest student-base with millions of students taking online courses.

Teachable: The easiest way to start selling online courses on your own website. I use their professional plan, but you can start for free!

imgres-1Skillshare: This is another site that I host some of my courses. There are also a ton of other great skills to learn here. It’s very heavy in creative courses but is currently expanding.
