LOVE YOUR LEGALS
DIY LEGAL DOCUMENTS & SMALL BUSINESS LAWYER
Every website needs to have a number of policies in order to protect your business, yourself and your website users.
Depending on the type of website and business you have, you could be required to have 1, or multiple policies on your website.
Some of these include:
Cookies Policy, and more
You don't necessarily need to hire a lawyer to and pay thousands of $ for custom policies (lots of "it depends" here) - my friend Shalini from Love Your Legals provides some super easy to use policy templates which I myself have purchased and downloaded for my own website to make sure I'm protecting myself and my business.
These templates are customisable and you're given a guide in each template on what you need to tweak so that it fits your business.

MY GO-TO SEO TOOL FOR ALL BUSINESS TYPES
SE Ranking is an all-in-one SEO software made simple.
SE Ranking has become my absolute favourite SEO tool - it covers it all, from:
Website auditing tool
Google rank tracking, and more.
I use SE Ranking for all of my SEO clients and the reason I love it more than any other (and trust me, I've tried a lot of them!) is because of the user-interface.
It's not confusing to find certain features, there are explanations for every little feature and tool, the accuracy of the keyword research tool is 100%, and their program is suitable for one-person businesses and small businesses like you and me.
And, their subscriptions are AFFORDABLE, starting from $31 per month. SE Ranking is now the only SEO tool that I pay for and use as there's no need for me to use any other program because SE Ranking has it all.
