Building an email list is essential for everyone who wished to communicate and build relationships. Every itinerant, apostle, prophet etc. is in the relationship business and email is a straightforward way to stay in touch with everyone you need to. I have tried two others programs before settling on Convertkit which has been amazing! Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
On-line video content is a supreme way of building an audience, making an impact, and earning income. There are a few options out there but Thinkific is my hands down favorite. Click below to find out more.
So, receiving money is not as easy as it should be. Doing it on line, accepting credit cards etc. should be a one vendor thing, but I have not been able to find that one vendor at an affordable price so here is what I have found useful.
Paypal is the defacto method of eBay and many online stores. That means a lot of people already have a PayPal account which is great. Their fees are not ridiculous and the offer free invoicing which is great. Their invoicing system needs an overhaul but way better than spending $30+ a month on other platforms. Payouts take 1 day when done before 7pm.
Stripe is one of the easiest to integrate into your website and works seamlessly with platforms like JotForm. Again, fees are not awful. The biggest downside is that it takes days to withdraw money. The other downside is that apart from basic payment acceptance online, everything else costs money.
If you travel and sell product or want to receive payments on you phone or tablet, Square is what you need. Set up an account, ask for a free Square reader and you are set. Fees are higher than everybody else, payment is a couple of days but it really is the best option for on site payments.
Wordpress is REALLY customizable but prone to crashing, Wix is super easy but a little clunky. I use Squarespace which is a compromise between the two. Find one that works for you.
Pablo offers SUPER easy content/quote/graphic creation. It is free, my favorite price.
Canva gives a lot of creative options. There is a monthly fee if you want to make the most out of it. It is fiddly and does take time to get used to. It is what I use almost 100% of the time.
