We cannot recommend LastPass enough. This is a great way to keep all of your passwords safe and secure. It lets you easily share passwords with others and you can choose if you want them to see the password or not.
We love G Suite. It gives us easy access to team files and shared folders. I love that I can easily add emails for my growing team.
MailChimp is great for beginners. They have templates and it’s an easy drag and drop design. It’s free for your first few hundred contacts and reasonable after.
We use a mix of Dropbox and Google Drive. If you have G Suite, google drive is amazing. It makes it easy to share with team members. We use Dropbox for training videos and shared folders with clients
17Hats is my go to for CRM’s. Great for service providers. Some of the great features include: CRM, Leads, Questionnaires, Projects, Quotes, Contracts, Invoices, Online Payment, Bookkeeping, Time Tracking, Workflows, Calendar, Tagging, Automations and much more!
Slack has been a life saver for me and my team. We can collaborate on projects in real time from anywhere. It also has a search function to find any conversation you need. Don’t forget about the gifs though! Slack has a Giphy integration that makes it fun to use.
Asana has made it easier for my team and our clients to keep track of tasks. We can comment and add files so clients can see everything in one place.
This is what we use for all of our team, client and training meetings. Zoom has been a great addition to our programs. I have it on my phone for meetings on the go and on my computer. You can have up to 40 minute meetings with the free account. Zoom integrates with our scheduling app below and will automatically create a meeting with a link to send to the participants.
Canva is great for beginners when it comes to designing photos, social media posts, email headers and flyers. They have tons of templates that make it easy to drag and drop photos and elements.
Acuity has saved my calendar! There is a free version but you can’t connect a calendar to it. It is 100% worth the monthly fee to upgrade. I can make multiple service or meeting types and it integrates with my Zoom account to create the zoom link right away. It has reminder emails the day before.
We have always used GoDaddy for our domain. I know there are cheaper options but I have had great customer service with GoDaddy so I’ve stayed.
I made my original site in the GoDaddy website builder and it looked ok but it was clunky and hard to customize. WordPress has beautiful themes you can use and tons of plugins to help optimize your site.
This is a great option. We had been using Zoom to record our screens for training but we found it would lag sometimes. Loom is seem less and easy to use.
Zapier lets you connect programs that don’t normally “talk” to each other. It’s an amazing tool to help automate your business.
