Opening the episode, Corinne and Christina showcase two services that assist them in keeping track of their data and information, primarily through emails.
First, they discussed ConvertBox, which helps to make one’s website more navigatitable and it specifically allows one to easily switch between email providers with ease.

One of the most important jobs of many of the “optimization” tools is the construction of a strong link network and programs such as Link Whisper and Thirsty Affiliates help The Smart Influencer Podcast to achieve that.
The episode touched on plugins like WP Recipe Maker, which is a template made by bloggers for bloggers and Yoast, which assists in search engine optimization.
A huge benefit of WP Recipe Maker is that posts can be edited through the template without affecting one’s ranking within the Google algorithm.
Last but not least, Corinne and Christina outlined two programs that serve them in promoting their content to their viewers and potential viewers.
Smash Balloon is a program that essentially creates an interactive Instagram feed allowing users to easily access more information about a certain post. One Signal is a service that provides a user with the ability to send subscribers customized push notifications.
