Additional Resources/Tips from Robert
Capitec Bank as backup for First National
Google Newsreader for world news highlights
Tapatalk for joining online expat forums (it makes reading easier)
Install YouTube Kids on a tablet or laptop; it is the safest option and our four-year-old has free rein on it, he ends up choosing alphabet songs all by himself.
Settle into a routine and meet up with other nomads with kids his/her age and let them play, you get to meet others like you and it is amazing. 🙂
Gmail account as backup—I have a forwarder on my domain that sends a copy to my Gmail
Extra Gmail account for registering on websites, to avoid spam
Search “hosting discount coupons” and use that to choose your hosting since they also give free domain names for your website
Install WordPress (free)
Theme: generatepress (free or paid version)
beaverbuilder page builder (free or paid version)
WooCommerce shop (free)
I use WPcourseware but there are free platforms for selling courses
I use MemberPress but there are free membership plugins
Mailchimp’s free plan includes automation now so it’s the best low-cost service for creating autoresponders and building lists
Mautic is a powerful automation system with a learning curve (free)
