Hey everyone, I made this list of quick and free/cheap resources to use to help establish your brand and start selling.

I recommend these over SquareSpace and other robust site builders, due to their simplicity and Pagespeed. Here's an article on the importance of Pagespeed.


“Build one-page sites for pretty much anything.”

Used widely by BLM and other cultural movements to disseminate information quickly. Very robust and simple editor even with the free package.

Offers better site-metrics and pagespeed than many other “linktree” type sites.

Pro plans start at $9/year: Use my referral if you want:

“Less distraction, more writing.”

Great for quick notes and longer posts, and allows submission from people outside of your blog.

Can just start writing with the free but posts are anonymous.

Paid plan starts at $4/month. referral-link


Alternatives to Venmo and Cashapp, that make inventory and invoicing easier.


“Creators deserve to get paid for their work. Gumroad makes it easy.”

Free to setup Easy and great for listing products in minutes and start selling. Inventory tracking and preorders.


  • 8.5% + $0.30 (USD) per sale.


“Tools to run your business—even when it’s not business as usual.”

Point of Sales, invoicing, and online store. Free to setup.
