Before you get started in any online project
Whether you are working on an established website or starting up a new project, there are a few must-have apps and services.
Below I have collected some of the most powerful and important tools I use on a daily basis; from social media to project management to email marketing.
Monday.com has been one of my favorite tools I’ve discovered and used. It is a great way to organize files, ideas, progress, and more.

I use MailChimp for all of my email marketing. Regardless of what service you use, email marketing should be a big part of your digital marketing efforts regularly.
