In this discussion, I’ll show money-saving hacks using free or single-cost plugins to create free or low-cost versions of premium services promoted to bloggers as the “end-all, be-all” solution to their blogging problems.

First, we’ll talk email list: how to use Mailchimp for free (or $9/mo if you’re willing to invest a little bit) rather than the more expensive options like ConvertKit (which starts at $29/mo). Then we’ll go through how to spend $20 one time to grow your list with fake Leadpages popup boxes and landing pages (normally $25 per month or more!).

Next we’re going to create an editorial calendar for your WordPress posts and email list. We’ll talk about free plugins you can use rather than CoSchedule ($15+ per month).

Finally, we’re going to discuss design. We’ll talk two money-saving solutions: how to use free programs or Adobe Creative Cloud ($50 per month if you want to invest) rather than hiring a graphic designer, and how to use a $20 plugin to customize your WordPress web design rather than paying hundreds for a custom site!
