Here are some very useful tools I've come across or built myself that may help you develop your business and consolidate its longevity. Some of them have been very handy to me and in various areas other than web development, such as branding and marketing.

I only list resources that I've personally used or believe would be beneficial to my followers, and doing so really helps monetise this site and is much appreciated. Please don't buy them unless you would benefit from them.

Get a BIG DISCOUNT on web hosting by clicking the 'see more' button, or by visiting this URL:


I've made a deal with GoDaddy meaning my audience receive an introductory discount. This discount works for any country and also applies to everything, such as web hosting, domain names, customised email addresses, SSL certificates, WHOIS privacy, and more.


Having used many web hosting providers, I switched to GoDaddy because everything is easier and cheaper; their back-end interface is intuitive, Wordpress-installation is semi-automatic, their servers and plentiful, customer service is instant and they offer great value for money.


You might want to write down the above URL for future reference.

A beginner-friendly website builder and content management system to allow people to build their own websites easily & at little cost. WordPress can easily be installed with GoDaddy. Note: is different but better than the limited!


My recommended eCommerce solution, especially for sole traders and small businesses. WooCommerce is a FREE & easy WordPress plugin that allows sellers to sell on their own websites.


Royalty and copyright-free images are very useful for all websites. Pixabay is a great place for finding images for your website without having to worry about copyright infringement.


As one of the best sources of free images with no copyright issues, Unsplash has some of the best images available although they may need compressing due to their large file sizes.


Pexels is another website for getting copyright-free images with no attribution as a requirement - for both personal and commercial purposes.

Tiny PNG

When you need to compress images for your website for SEO purposes, Tiny PNG is a useful tool that does this without any hassle and is free.

A useful tool usually for developers, allows you to draw up a mockup website in a web browser before building a website and can be saved as a URL.


A handy tool that allows you to quickly fiddle with some HTML, CSS & JavaScript code - probably best for developers.


Use Gimp - a free alternative to Adobe Photoshop - to manipulate images for your website.


Download copyright-free videos for your website from Coverr and display them in the background.

Photography Tools & Resources

Photography Cheat Sheet

My own guide typically for eCommerce sellers who want to improve their product photography and avoid buying expensive unnecessary tools like cameras if they don't need to.


For Images


Positions and stabilises the camera. Consider buying a phone mount if using a cameraphone.

For Videos


Records better sound. Use one that either mounts above a camera, is standalone or clips on to a shirt. Consider buying an extension cable to ensure it's long enough!


Stabilises footage while moving a camera or cameraphone, producing smoother footage.



Ideal for optimising sounds: remove background noise, increase the clarity, adjust the bass, etc.


If using a cameraphone, its in-built camera app might not allow you to adjust fundamental settings like the ISO, white balance, frame rate, resolution, etc. Download a professional app that allows you to take control.
