DAILY BUSINESS TOOLS

I have tried lots of different software, tools and plugins over the years. Consider this my curated version just for you. This page does contain affiliate links. This means I receive some coffee money for recommending these rad companies cause I love them, use them and adore them.

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. 

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.

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.

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!

CREATIVE MARKET

My go-to place for buying fonts, stock photos, icons, graphics etc. It’s a haven for all kinds of digital goods that you can use on your website or in social media.

MAILCHIMP

Hands down the easiest marketing platform to start using. The tutorials are super easy to follow and you’ll be shooting off marketing newsletter emails to clients & customers in a jiffy!

QUICKBOOKS

Perfect option for small businesses – this accounting software is easy to set-up and use and syncs to your bank account. My clients can pay invoices using bank transfer, PayPal etc and the reporting is great for my accountant!

SENDOWL

This eCommerce platform makes it easy for you to sell digital products and handles affiliate / referral programs to your customers. It has amazing features such as upsell, cart abandonment, and more.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

It’s important to track who, where and how visitors are using your website. Connecting your website to Google Analytics will provide you with all the insight you need.

LOOM

A FREE and super helpful tool for screen recording + sending videos. Great to use when collaborating with others, recording your screen or showing a client/customer how to use something online. This is what I use when teaching my clients how to use/do something in WordPress.

LATER

My favourite tool for pre-planning and scheduling my Instagram posts. Simply upload your image, drag into the calendar and schedule it to post on a certain date and time. You can also drive traffic and track sales made. It’s a winner in my books.

STOCK IMAGES
