If you're enjoying this site and the Monday Medley, there are a few ways you can help me continue to put so much time and energy into this site.
The easiest and most direct way to support this site is through a contribution at this link.
Anything you donate there will go straight to me, and you'll get a shoutout in the next Monday Medley!
If you’re running a company that wants to get more organic traffic, you can always hire my company Growth Machine to help you out. I will warn you though that our packages start around $6,000 per month, so this is targeted more at businesses already doing over a million a year in revenue, or who have raised some respectable amount of capital.
If you’re not at that point yet, you can also buy our course “Build Your Own Growth Machine,” which will show you how to create a content marketing machine of your own, based on the processes we’ve used to grow our client sites.
There’s also the Brain, my collection of highly annotated notes on 235+ books. I’ve been working on it for 5 years and it brings me an insane amount of value every week, and you can buy access to it as well.
And if you want to start a blog for your company but don’t have any writers for it, Growth Machine has a writer finding service you can use to find the perfect writers for your site.
This one is super simple. Before you buy anything on Amazon, just click this link.
It won’t cost you anything else, but Amazon will give me a 4-7% commission on whatever you spend on anything over the next 24 hours.
There are also some specific products and tools I regularly recommend that give me a little kickback when you buy or sign up for them after clicking through my link. Here they are in no particular order.
Webflow is like WordPress but better and prettier and easier. It’s how I built this site, the Growth Machine site, the Cup & Leaf blog, and I recommend it for pretty much everyone. You can read more on why I like it here, or just click here to sign up for it for your next website.
Aside from Webflow, I use Teachable for hosting the online courses I’ve done in the past. It’s a fantastic platform for creating and hosting courses, and I can’t really imagine using anything else.
You probably already know about Shopify, and for good reason. It’s the best way to create and host an online store, and we use it for Cup & Leaf. It’s wonderful, and if you’re not already using it, you can sign up here.
I don’t like to think about investing, so I don’t. I just toss it all into Wealthfront and let their systems do the rest. It’s great, easy, and they keep improving it.
Fomo adds an unobtrusive notification system to your online store to show other shoppers what people have been buying recently, which I rather like for giving the store a bit of personality.
Incorporate.com is by far the easiest way to create a new business. Skip LegalZoom and just use them, they make it very painless and very fast.
Personal Capital is the site I use to monitor my financial standing, make sure I’m not spending too much, and track my investments. It’s kind of like Mint for people who want to build wealth as opposed to focus on budgeting.
Of course it always helps to send more people to this site any way you can.
