HoneyBook is similar to Dubsado, but I believe it’s much simpler to set up and use. The layouts are user friendly and make it easy to find what you need.
I even became a HoneyBook educator because I love their system! (Get 50% off with my link!)
Zoom is the go-to video conferencing tool for online entrepreneurs. They have everything from free meetings to paid webinars. It also allows you to share your screen, which is one of my favorite features.
Measure + Maximize ($$$) is an 8-Week program that teaches you to measure your marketing and build gorgeous custom dashboards using free software. Start making data-driven decisions and stop guessing at your business!
Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing ($$) was created by a blogger who makes over $50,000/month from affiliate marketing!
This course explains all of the ins and outs, so you are never left wondering where to go next when creating and implementing your affiliate marketing strategy.
Sales Page in a Day ($) is my favorite and only resource for writing my sales pages. I’d be lost without these templates from Amanda Genther. She makes it sooo easy to create a sales page that it almost feels like cheating!
The Tripwire Training ($) from Elizabeth Goddard literally teaches you how to make money in your sleep and you can set it up in just a few hours. I made my money back on this course after only a few days!
Google Workspace is absolutely worth the bit of extra money. I wish I started using it as soon as I started my biz! Get tons of cloud storage, domain email address and aliases (like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com), and a ton of features for your biz.
ConvertKit is the Queen of email marketing. It’s intuitive and has excellent metrics to help you along. Also, it offers the most features for sales funnels and automations. This is what I use for my own email marketing.
ActiveCampaign is my favorite email marketing tool for business that need serious customization and analytics. I’m pretty sure AC can even make your breakfast while you send out emails to your list. It’s a bit pricey, so I recommend it for big businesses.
Wave is the perfect accounting software for beginners. It’s free to use and pretty easy to learn. It doesn’t offer as many features as it’s paid competitors, but you still get a lot of bang for your buck.
Canva is the only graphics tool I use. I’ve made everything from my logo, to Pinterest posts with it.
The pro version makes organization easy with the ability to save your branding elements and keep everything stored in folders.
Pixistock is fantastic for stock photos, but they also have a TON of Canva templates and one of the best social media calendars I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t manage my social media without their membership!
Trello is a visual organization tool. Think of it like index cards.
You can write stuff on the front, write more on the back, organize them, move them around, etc. Luckily for us all, Trello is much easier to keep up with than index cards.
Dropbox is a great all-around cloud storage system for everyone. There aren’t any bells and whistles (like the office suites available with Google Drive and OneDrive), but I love using it to store pictures and videos that I want to share.
SiteGround is the best website hosting with stellar customer support! I solemnly swear that I will never recommend BlueHost to you.
If you can afford it, sign up for 3 years at a time. It’s MUCH less expensive when you first join. I’ve been using them since 2017 and couldn’t be happier.
