SmarterQueueSmarterQueue is a social media scheduler that I highly recommend. I use SmarterQueue for scheduling Facebook posts to my business page and Facebook group as well as Twitter. The main thing that I love about SmarterQueue is that the pricing is just right for my budget, it helps me save time by posting content when I want it to post so that I'm not spending time online all day.


TailwindTaillwind is a Pinterest scheduler that I absolutely LOVE. Since using Tailwind I have grown my Pinterest account, created a community on Tailwind via Tailwind Tribes and my page views have tripled. It's super simple to use and I highly recommend it.


ConvertKitConvertKit is an email marketing service provider and I highly recommend it if you're wanting to grow your email list and deliver opt-in freebies. Since using ConvertKit I have been able to grow my audience, speak to specific people on my list, make sales and grow a community. I have used other platforms in the past but nothing compares to ConvertKit.

Zoom: Zoom is a video conferencing tool that I highly recommend! I use Zoom for sales calls, client sessions, course office hours with students, group masterminds and virtual coffee dates. It is also another tool to use to record your screen for screen casting. It's super affordable, $14.99/m BUT if you want to try out the platform you can use it for FREE for 45 minutes which I LOVE and recommend to my audience if they aren't ready to commit to paying for it yet. I'll definitely have to do a video or blog post on it soon because Zoom is a super useful for business owners. 


Dubsado: Dubsado is a client management system and I recommend it to anyone who is working with clients. My favorite thing about Dubsado is how I can use one platform for my client workflow. I can get leads, send emails, send proposals/contracts, send invoices, receive payments, use project management and more. I also love that they offer a free account for your first THREE clients. I was able to test their platform for MONTHS before deciding if I wanted to upgrade to a paid package.

Cost: Free trial for your first three clients

 

Squarespace: When I first started blogging, I used Wordpress but with all of the different plugins, hiring people for coding.... I just needed something that was a little bit easier to manage. You don’t have to know how to code to set up your Squarespace website! I love the drag-and-drop features and overall clean look of my website. I can edit my site all by myself and don't ever need to pay extra money if something isn't working, and if I do need help Squarespace's customer support is AMAZING! 


Cost: Free Trial, (paid plans available, as low as $8/m)

Trello: Trello is an organizing tool for anyone who wants to keep lists all in one place. I used to be really into bullet journaling and while I still enjoy writing things down, Trello is now my go-to tool for task management. The best part about Trello is that it is free. I keep my weekly task list, editorial calendars, business workflows, YouTube scripts and so much more inside this tool. 

Cost: Free (paid options available)
