If you had to pick one free software of site to recommend to new people what would it be?

There a lot of members that are on the journey of learning more about computers and how to use them. That is part of what is taught here at Wealthy Affiliate is how to use technology to help you build a business and make money.


If you could recommend just one free software or site for new people to use what would it be?

You do not have to be super tech savvy to answer this. No matter your skill level what would you recommend?


The one I would recommend is Ccleaner by Piriform!

GIMP for photo editing. A bit hard to learn tho. But once you get used to it, you'll realize that it has lots of flexibility that other free web-based image editors can't give.

The ones that I am familiar with the most are:

Wealthy Affiliate keyword tool.
Jaaxy, this one is technically not free, other than your first ten.
Grammarly would be great, but is definitely not mobile friendly.

So for me, I'd have to say, "Its the Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool." Hands Down!

Thanks for another helpful post question. I'll be saving this email alert for sure.

Building a site to be proud of!

Hello, Abdul. You can go to site support and ask them for help. Go to site Rubix and in the upper right corner, you will find it.

I would recommend Bracket. It's a text editor tool. It helps cut your time down while writing code. It has a feature that will complete all of the beginning must have tags, and it come with the Lorem filler text. Great for when I'm building my portfolio websites.
