WEB HOSTING

FLYWHEEL

My favourite web hosting provider. Flywheel offers managed WordPress web hosting for websites of all shapes and sizes. The monthly fees are affordable and the customer service is fast and reliable. 

BUSINESS MANAGEMENT PLATFORM

DUBSADO

This CRM system is what runs my business. Paperwork is a thing of the past (hello, saving the environment) and all of my contracts, invoices, proposals, emails, calendar, projects, tasks etc are kept in one online space. It keeps me organised and allows seamless communication between me and my clients. Anyone in a creative or service-based business could really benefit from using a system like this.

ESSENTIAL LEGAL DOCUMENTS

LEGAL 123

Lots of people wanna skip the legal mumble jumble but you need to protect your biz lady. If you don’t have the cash to hire a lawyer, then head on over to Legal123 and buy the Website Legal Pack – includes a customised Privacy Policy, Disclaimer and Terms & Conditions.

FILE HOSTING SERVICE

DROPBOX

The perfect place to save, share and store your files securely. Every day I’m receiving content and images from clients. I use to save them to my hard drive until I discovered Dropbox. Now my clients upload their content and images to a shared Dropbox folder that we can both access and everything is so organised and easy to access. It also syncs with my phone, desktop and laptop!
