Track Your Visitors
First thing to implement once your website is live, so you can start analysing your users and serve better your visitors and customers.
Even if you don't have a clue about how to use Google Analytics, you need to have it implemented on your website. When it's time to analyse your data, improve your performance and collaborate with a digital marketer or web designer, you'll thank me later.
Besides being a link shortener, Bitly also lets you analyse the performance for each link you create. Their handy reports give you lots of great info, including which social media platforms were used to share your links.
Hosting & Domains

Amazing places where you can learn new skills.
Even though you should keep them to a minimum, there are some plugins that can save you lots of headaches.
Books that have inspired me somehow.
In Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, considered by Washington Post one of the books every leader should read, Adam Grant shows us how helping others drives our own success by dividing the world into three types of people: takers, matchers, and givers.
