Design Tools & Resources

Themes, Templates, & Page Builders

ThemeForest has tons of website templates and themes for HTML, Email, WorPress, landing pages, sales pages, PSD, Joomla, Magento, and more.

WooThemes for HTML, WordPress, and landing page themes. WooThemes even has a few of their themes for free, check them out!

TemplateMonster has themes for WordPress, HTML, Joomla, PrestaShop, Magento, OpenCart, Moto, Muse, Unbounce, and Drupal. They also have formats for Photoshop, landing pages, newsletters, Facebook, and more

LeadPages provides templates you can customize in minutes with your own text. Add drag-and-drop elements, brand them with your own colors and images—and feel secure knowing that the landing page you’ve created is based on a template that has been tested as highly-converting. I also use it for their “Leadboxes” feature – connecting an image to a pop-up opt-in. Connects to all popular autoresponders, too.

Graphics / Video

CoverActionsPremium are Photoshop Actions that are great for ecovers, binder graphics, and doo-dads.

Flocksy is an on-demand graphic design service that has different tiers of support. I use them for ecovers, social media graphics, templates, logos. I don’t recommend for the occasional graphic design job as their lowest plan is $199/month, but if this is something you need on an ongoing basis, highly recommended.

Design Pickle is a flat-rate email driven graphic design service built for marketers. They provide unlimited revisions and do everything from brochures to web graphics to banners.

VideoMakerFX creates the fun animations, whiteboard presentations, and videos set to music.

Online stock photo sites:

  • DepositPhotos
  • iStockPhoto
  • Canva (YES! Not only is Canva an online design tool that allows people to easily create beautiful designs using ready-made, highly customizable templates, but they also have an extensive collection of stock photos.)
