Resources

Setting up a website like Chantahlia Design takes a number of resources and recently I have been asked about how Chantahlia Design was created. This is a list of resources I use to make Chantahlia Design the amazing site it is.

This page contains affiliate links which means if you click on a link and make a purchase, sign up for a program or download a free resource, I may receive a payment at no cost to you.

Hosting

To create any website the first place to start is with hosting. I chose to use First, Second, Third, “>Bluehost, but my experience has only been positive.

WordPress.org

I use WordPress.org for Chantahlia Design. It is free and I combine it with the free WooCommerce theme. WooCommerce is generally used for selling goods but I use it for my free downloads. I do this by combing WooCommerce with the Free Downloads WooCommerce plugin. It is quite easy to follow the set up and if I get lost I just google what to do next.

Design Resources

The main font used on Chantahlia Design is called Berrylicious. This is a free font you can download HERE
The fonts I use to make my alphas are generally fonts from Font Bundles or Creative Fabrica.


Both sites provide free fonts on a regular basis but I also have a subscription with Creative Fabrica. It makes life easier for me to save time finding something I like to use.

Font Banner - Free Fonts


I created my own logo and banner. I use Photoshop for all my design work.

Social Media Scheduling

Social Media is an essential part of marketing Chantahlia Design

Pinterest brings a lot of traffic to my website and I use Tailwind to schedule my pins. I started on their free 100 pins a month plan but upgraded to a plus plan for more pins. It is a life saver for me helping me organise my time better. If you click HERE you can receive a month for free on a plus plan and I will also receive a month free. I suggest you try it on the free plan first to get the hang of the program and if you upgrade this link will give you a month free.

For Instagram I schedule one post a day which I do through Hootsuite on their free plan. That allows 30 posts a month. I have not upgraded as yet.

I hope this list helps you a little and I would love you to use any of my links. My affiliate links help pay to keep the site online.
