The best of the bunch

While I’ve not tried all of these platforms I have tried a number of them and these are mytop 3 recomendations:

Frase is my top pick for the AppSumo Black Friday selection, it’s a content research tool that helps you generate well research content briefs. They have a content editor that allows you to write content on the platform with research directly available in the same window and, if you outsource content writing, you can generate and export a research document to send to your SEO writing team.

My advice, go for the 2 stack. This is a fantastic opportunity to grab a tool that will help you with any topical research you’re doing and it’s already received a ton of updates following user feedback and shows no sign of slowing down.

Another website based deal, this time for a WordPress based email managing platform. MailPoet gives you the power of platforms such as MailChimp directly in your WordPress website. I’ve used this on a a different website and found it to be an excellent plugin, it’s easy to use, easy to create great looking emails and your get good stats to show opening and click rates.

Already got a MailChimp account? No problem, you can import your existing email list into MailPoet, which can potentially end up saving you a monthly charge.

With the world constantly in and out of lockdown now’s the time to package your talents up into an online course to sell. There are a lot of platforms available to help you do this, Teachable, Thinkific etc, and they all have a monthly charge.

FreshLMS might be the new kid on the block but if you want to launch a course this is the ideal platform, offering many of the same features as other platforms for a single one off charge.
