  What You Need for This Mini Course

As you work through this course, you may be wondering what resources, software, and tools you'll need to put my technique into play. So here is a list of what you need, what I recommend, and what is optional.

What You Need (And I Assume You Have) For This Course:

  • A self-hosted WordPress or SquareSpace blog and admin privileges to it
  • A way to create PDFs (there are free ways, like Canva and Google Docs)

What I Recommend:

  • A mailing list platform like ConvertKit *. You could use another mail marketing platform, such as MailerLite or Drip, if it does the same things as ConvertKit. I do NOT recommend MailChimp.

TIP: If you need a new mailing list platform, I was granted a special 30-day free trial ConvertKit link to give my students (instead of the usual 14-day trial). To get the 30-day trial, use this link: http://mbsy.co/jhsmd *

What is Optional and Recommended

  • The Adobe suite (for more advanced file creation -- I use this because I am more familiar with it than other software)

What is Optional and not Needed

  • The Essential Grid plugin

What I Do NOT Recommend

  • Thrive Leads -- students in our course have reported that opt-in forms made with Thrive Leads DO NOT WORK ALWAYS on Pinterest Mobile
