top 4 tools I use to run my online business
  • Twitter

When you start your own business, you’re highly likely to be doing everything yourself.  It can be super hard trying to juggle all aspects of your business, that keep things ticking over.  And if you’re not a naturally organised person (🙌🏻 yep that’s me), things can start to get pretty crazy quickly.

So, to reign things in you have to have a few tools by your side, that you can utilise.  In this post I’m going to go through the top 4 online business tools that I use each + every day, that make my biz life that little bit easier.

 

ClickUp – Project Management Tool

Ok, this is my new best friend!  ClickUp keeps everything to do with my business organised.  It’s an awesome alternative to Asana + Trello (I’ve tried bot in the past), but it seems to have way more usability.

You can time track, add due dates, plus make them recurring, checklists, save templates, track goals… and so, so much more.

You’re able to create sections for each area of your business or life, +  invite clients to their own project, so they can stay on track with their own tasks, which is awesome.

I’m still getting my head into it, but it’s definitely a keeper.

 

Later – Instagram Scheduler

If you’re trying to be more consistent with your social media, then you need a scheduler in your life!  

I use Later for scheduling my Instagram posts, which has really helped me focus on getting content out. Every Thursday I batch create my posts, and use the preview tool in Later, to move the tiles around, so I have cohesive look. I have the free account, which lets you schedule 30 images a month, which for me is just perfect.  

You can write out your post content, and set a date and time for them to go out. Install the free app onto your phone, and then have the ability to either send out posts automatically, or (my preference) have the posts push notified, so you can go in and copy them into IG, it doesn’t take long, and then I can go straight in + add the hashtags in the comments.  If you use this link when you sign up you’ll receive an extra 10 posts per month.

 

Dubsado

This is a real game changer, + I don’t even use it to its full potential.  

Dubsado enables you to send online proposals + contracts, and have them signed, easily. Set up workflows, and lead generating forms that can be plugged into your website.  Manage your accounts and set up appointment scheduling! It has so many tools rolled into one, and the fact that you can use it for free on your first 3 clients or leads is awesome.

 

G Suite

I use G Suite each and every day within my business.  It’s an affordable option at under £5 per month for the basic plan. G Suite enables me to have a personalised email linked to my domain, plus a host of other features.

Google docs, and Google sheets are used almost every day, share documents and give multiple people access to the working document and you can also use them offline which is super handy.  There is also Google Slides, which is perfect for presentations.

So there you have it, my top 4 business tools for day to day running of my online business.

Do you have any go to tools that aren’t listed?  I’d love to hear about them, drop a message in the comments!
