5 Amazing Tech Tools for Catholics


Over the years, after writing three books, a thousand blog posts, and speaking to thousands of people about new media, by far the two most common questions I receive are:

“How are you so productive?”


“What service do you use for [activity]?”

Almost everyone I meet has big goals. They want to promote their projects, launch a blog, write a book, or simply accomplish more in less time. But they don’t know where to start. They don’t have the time or expertise to find the specific tools they need.

That’s why I created my new Resources page. You’ll find it up at the top menu:


It’s a one-stop collection of all my favorite tools and resources, everything I use to stay productive each day. Whether you’re looking to create a website, master social media, start an online business, or create awesome videos, you’ll find what you need.

Below you’ll find a sampling my five favorite tools. But when you click over to my Resources page you’ll find several more.
(Disclosure: Please note that many of the services on my Resources page are free, but some require purchase. And among those, some of the links are affiliate links which means I will earn a small commission if you decide to make a purchase, but at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these tools, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.)

On this page I’ve listed dozens of helpful resources, but these are my five favorites. I recommend them almost every time I speak and I use them personally.

When you start a blog or website, you need two things: a domain address (like “brandonvogt.com”) and a hosting service. Bluehost is my favorite hosting service. I use it for the majority of my websites and the websites I run for Word on Fire. Why? Because it’s incredibly easy and they have phenomenal customer service.

Would you rather have 1,000 Facebook Likes, 1,000 Twitter followers, or 1,000 email subscribers? I’d take the email subscribers any day. If you really want to maximize your web presence, you have to build your email list. There’s simply no better way to directly connect with people who care. Although there are many good email services, like MailChimp and ConstantContact, I prefer Aweber and it’s what I personally use.
