Let me spare you the guesswork and show you the cream of the crop all-time favourite secret weapons. These will help you grow, scale and automate your business to the next level (you’ll almost feel like you’re cheating).
Here are my chosen few—these are the products that I have come to love and trust. There’s no hype, and no fluff. The WTF Property Investing brand is powered and built using these exact same tools. It has helped me start and build my vision whilst growing the business.
PS: Some of the recommendations are my affiliate links, which means I get a small commission for recommending the product to you. There are sometimes special deals you can get exclusively – so keep an eye out!
WPX Hosting is my go-to hosting for all my websites, including this one
I’ve used all the big names but nobody beats the speed of WPX hosting. They have shiny new SSD servers. They UNDER-load all their servers to keep them fast. You’ll get unlimited free SSL certificates and enterprise level protection against attacks on your website. Great for hosting a wordpress website. Best of all? They offer 24/7 support to help you with any problems!
This entire website was custom built using Elementor Pro – using NO CODE!
I’m not a developer, but I do have a design eye. Elementor Pro has helped me build a custom website EXACTLY how I want it. It’s incredibly powerful and light meaning your website stays lightening fast. It’s simple, powerful and you can build your website 100% visually using no coding. It’s far more powerful and easier than WIX or Squarespace.
Everything you need to organise and build better relationships in property
Tracking all your deals that you’re putting offers on has never been easier. I also store all my contacts that I meet through social media or networking. You can also add email conversations to deals to keep track of their progress. HubSpot is great for tracking your pipeline of deals and managing your property business.
Create a website in minutes with an easy drag and drop builder
Squarespace is the all-in-one solution for anyone looking to create a beautiful website. Domains, eCommerce, hosting, galleries, analytics, and 24/7 support. If you’re not confident getting your own hosting and using elementor then Squarespace have a fantastic drag and drop website builder on a monthly plan.
Create stunning logos, social media graphics, PDFs and more!
Originally being a graphic designer, Canva was a huge threat to the design world. It’s incredibly powerful and easy to use and means you can create stunning graphics and export them to the perfect size in minutes. If you’re not the best designer, select one of their thousands of templates to use and customise with your colours. You can also animate graphics for social media. It’s so powerful and I now use it for quick graphics over Photoshop.
Build up your investor list with the best email marketing platform
ConvertKit is a great contender compared to other platforms like MailChimp. It’s built specifically for small business owners and has a beautiful user-interface to create stylish, high converting emails. You can also segment your list to ensure your subscribers get targeted communications. I decided to use this over MailChimp.
Get your professional branded domain for less than £7 per year
Namecheap does what it says on the tin! It has cheap domains, I often find they’re cheaper than GoDaddy. It’s super easy to point your domain to external web hosting servers like WPX Hosting! You can also host custom email accounts and also buy cheap hosting from NameCheap.

Rich Dad Poor Dad
The book that inspired many property investors to get started, including me!
Rich Dad Poor Dad is about Robert Kiyosaki and his two dads—his real father (poor dad) and the father of his best friend (rich dad)—and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing.
You don’t need to earn a high income to be rich. Rich people make money work for them.
Beginners Guide to Property Investing
Rob Dix the ‘Property Geek’ wrote a fantastic book if you’re a beginner. Even if you have a few properties and looking to open your eyes a little more – this book is for you!
Rob runs a successful blog and property business in Manchester and has a genuine best selling book that dives deep into property investing strategies.
How To Be a Landlord
Another cracker from Rob Dix and another favourite of mine. This is the best book for learning all about being a landlord.
Rob goes through all of the requirements, licences, certificates and everything you’d possibly need to know to manage one of your own properties. Even if you don’t manage your own property, it will give you a good idea of what your agent should be doing.
Project manage like a pro. The easiest way to manage team projects and task. Boards, lists, assign users and organise anything in your business.
I use Asana to keep track of all the tasks whilst starting up a property business and the things I need to do.
Notion is like a mini-CRM. You create lists, kanban boards and even create mini-databases.
Or use it like a note tool!
Notion has endless possibilities and actually replaces a lot of tasks I do on Asana.
Social media scheduling like a pro. I use Later to manage my Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter automatically over the week.
