Work at Home Resources: Massive Quick List - Work at Home Trust


If you're in the process of setting up your work at home business or blog, chances are you are also looking for the best resources you can find to get the ball rolling. That are many free and paid resources on the internet, but finding good ones that work for you can be a challenge sometimes. This is the reason why I've decided to introduce to you a list of resources. Some may be useful to you, so feel free to browse through them and make your own decision.

Blog 
Blogger is totally free with no ads. You can buy a domain name and attach it to your blog for free. You can also get free stunning templates on third-party sites such as Gooyaabi.





Free to use, but you won't be able to attach a domain name unless you upgrade to a monthly payment.





WordPress.org
This is a self-hosting platform. 





Free, has ads, and you won't be able to attach a purchased domain name unless you upgrade to a monthly payment.

Blog Templates




You will find many free templates that work well on Blogger.



It has many free templates for Blogger.


Affordable Web Hosting





BlueHost
One of the cheapest and most loved web host in the blogging world. It's normally $7.99/month, but it has been reduced to $3.95/month. For the Black Friday sale, you receive a discount to only $2.65/month if you use the link above.





SiteGround
This one is also one of the cheapest web hosting. It's currently $2.05/month.





GreenGeeks
This one provides unlimited space and package starts from $3.95/month.





MaxBounty
Package starts at $3.95/month.


Domain Name





This is the domain hosting that I use. It's very easy to use and you can host many domains and sub-domains. It's very affordable too! I spend less than $10 a year to host a single domain.





GoDaddy
This is a very popular one. You can find affordable domain names.


Social Media Management





Tailwind
Manage your Instagram and Pinterest accounts in one place.





BufferApp
Manage all your social media accounts in one place. You can schedule posts as well.





HootSuite
Manage all your social media accounts in one place. I use this one and find it user-friendly. I initially found it very confusing, but it was easy to learn. It is free, but you can upgrade to more features. You can even include your RSS and have your blog posts automatically posted to your social media accounts. Schedule posts.


Editing



It will edit everything you write online for free.


Email Marketing




MailChimp
Free up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month.





Mailertlite
Free up to 1000 subscribers and unlimited emails, MailerLite is more than just an email marketing tool. It comes with landing pages, pop-ups, and email automation.





GetResponse
This is also more than just an email marketing tool. It comes with webinars, landing pages, and marketing automation.





Aweber
This one is a little bit on the expensive side because it costs $19/month for only 500 subscribers. It does come with many features, so you can try the free 30-day-trial and see if it's for you. You can also get a free guide on What to Write in Your Email.


Newsletter Optin Form



MailMunch
This is the optin I use to make my newsletter pop up on the side. It is free and email marketing tools can be integrated into it.






SumoMe
This is a multi-purpose WordPress plugin (also usable on Blogger and other platforms) that has email generators with popups, phrase highlighter that asks visitors if they would like to tweet it, share buttons/widgets to make sharing your content easier, and more.

Similar to the above two, OptinMonster allows you to collect leads (emails). Here is a message from the site, "OptinMonster is the #1 lead generation and email list building tool. Our WordPress plugin allows you to create lightbox popups, floating footer bars, slide-ins, and other highly effective optin forms. OptinMonster also comes with built-in A/B testing functionality, robust analytics, and powerful exit-intent technology."
Image Editing




PicMonkey
I've used this one a lot. It used to be free to use and download, but now you'd have to upgrade before downloading. It is easy to use and you do not have to be a designer. I really love PicMonkey. It's by far one of my favorite image editors. I wish the free download was still available.





Canva
This one is stunning! It is easy to use and images are available at your fingertip.





Desygner
This one is very similar to Canva. I love it too.


Cloud Storage





My all-time favorite cloud storage. You get 15GB free storage.





The basic free plan comes with 2GB of space. You can upgrade to more storage space.


Collaboration/Productivity



Asana
Collaborate with your team and schedule your work for free. There's an option to upgrade to more features. I've used Asana before. It was nice for a free tool, but it is very limiting if you plan on expanding your business.





Trello
Help your team stay organized for free. It is easy, simple, and very visual!

Voice/Video Conference



Skype
Make free calls, group calls, voice and video calls. It's now owned by Microsoft.










Google Hangout
Make free voice and video calls.







Join.me
Host free meetings and conferences.



Learning Resource




Udemy
You can take whatever online courses you want or teach courses. For Black Friday, courses are only $10.





Transcribe Anywhere
You can find free general and legal transcription courses here.




Teachable
This is a very popular course creating tool. It can be a bit pricey (£39/month), but it comes with many features such as reaching many potential students, website creation, domain name integration, sales pages, and more.





Alison
There are over 1,000 free courses to learn new skills.

Payment Method




PayPal
Get paid in a secured way.


PayPal.me
It provides a quicker way to get paid.






Payoneer
Don't have PayPal? Not a problem! Payoneer makes it easy to send and receive money from anywhere in the world. The exchange rate is also much cheaper because it is calculated based on the true market price. Sign up and earn $25.


Ads





MediaNet
This is my favorite so far. It is very simple and easy to create ads. Ads are relevant to your blog, although... you wouldn't want to send your blog readers elsewhere. Media.Net doesn't require publishers to have a huge audience before being approved.







AdSense
Monetize your blog through traffic and ad clicks. It is easy to join and get approved. But if you violate any of Google's terms, your application may get denied or take much longer than it wouldn't have otherwise. Usual waiting time is 1-2 days.





Revenue Hits
This is another alternative to AdSense. It has an immediate approval system, so you aren't required to have a huge audience before applying.





Infolinks
This is also an alternative to AdSense.


Affiliate Marketing 
Earn commission when you commander products
Read e-book for more info




This is hands down one of my favorite ones. So far, most of my favorite work at home tools are under ShareASale. You can also earn a commission by referring the network to other publishers.






MaxBounty has many companies under its network that you can get automatic access to. It also has a web hosting program and a referral program. If you like MaxBounty, why not refer it to others and earn a commission?




This is a very popular one. It has thousands of businesses registered. This gives you the chance to apply to multiple affiliate programs.




After getting approved, you will see a list of companies with the percentage in commission they offer. Some offer a flat rate (example: $50 per sale). You must apply to each company and qualify for their affiliate program before having the change to earn. Some companies automatically approve each application; that’s rare.






CJ Affiliate byConversant (formerly Commission Junction)
This is also a very popular one. CJ is one of my favorite affiliate networks.






If you’re not new to the online world, you’ve probably see Amazon products under many blog posts. Amazon Associates is an affiliate program that gives publishers the opportunity to earn a commission from Amazon products when a purchase is made using unique links.
