People always ask for my recommendations on business tools. Or when something looks great, they ask what I’m using. So I made this resource page to tell you all my secrets!
Smoothest and Sleekest Way to Make a Website: ShowIt
I was pretty fed up with having to do a lot of customization and coding for one design. I would also get a lot of problems if the coding was sloppy on Wordpress. So I switched to ShowIt and now my site always looks professional and is so easy to update.
Themes, Templates, Graphics and Fonts: Creative Market
I am obsessed with Creative Market. Many designers use this for passive income, and it’s also an amazing source to find everything you need for a beautiful website. They have affordable fonts too, for that extra touch of personalization.
Email Marketing & Automation: Convertkit
Once you’ve outgrown having a free email service like MadMimi, you’ll want to leverage your email list. If you want a smart way to send opt-ins to your readers, segment them so they only send content that’s relevant, and have great lead captures, Convertkit will have your back.
Pinterest Automation for More Exposure: Tailwind
It’s hard to maintain a Pinterest account when you’re hustling! Tailwind will pin your blog posts either randomly or with a schedule. And the Tailwind Tribes will help you reach more people easily.
CRM for invoices, proposals, workflows, and scheduling: Dubsado
I save a ton of time with the back and forth of proposals, contracts, and invoices through Dubsado. It is so intuitive. It also comes with a client portal and cool features like forms and questionnaires. Which are super helpful for the client homework I give during my brand design projects! I can also capture leads and schedule phone calls all through one place. Get a discount if you use my link!
Professional Email Address using Gmail: Google Apps
Have a professional look by getting an email address with your domain name. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org. I had one for a while but hated the free email apps I had to use with it. I was so used to Gmail’s interface, I decided it was worth it to have it through there. Now I can even share Google Docs with clients under my professional email instead of seeing an email from “@gmail.com”!
