There's a good Beatto video on all the chords that a songwriter should know. If I can find it I'll post it up. Basically explains where and when you can do chord substitutions like if you're in C you can choose to use a III instead of a iii, or when playing something like an F#Major can be used. I found it quite interesting anyway.

Was actually 2 videos.

This one covers stuff like borrowing chords from the parallel minor* and secondary dominant chords (basically on any degree of your key you can substitute a chord a perfect 5th above the degree, so if you were in C, you might play a A maj instead of a Dm)


Then this one, the second half of it talks about using flatVI chords etc


* you find that a lot in Otis redding songs apparently, he used to tune a guitar to an open major chords and then just move his barre up and down the neck to come up with progressions, hence he ended up with using III or VI chords unexpectedly.
