- Acuity Scheduling. I think this is THE easiest, cost effective way to schedule appointments. If you’re a side-hustler, a full time entrepreneur, or you just want to get into the habit of using a scheduling system, Acuity can do it all. The two best features (there are so many!) is that the look is customizable so it can look exactly how you want it to be integrated with your branding. The other is that your client will never mess up a time zone. It’s worth it for that feature alone!
- Zoom. Video Conferencing tool to help you be more efficient than talking on the phone. The connection is more stable than Skype. You can screen share and record easily! It’s great for coffee chats, client calls or team calls!
- Dubsado. The mighty tool for small businesses! It helps you manage contracts, payments, your client pipeline (a CRM), sends questionnaires, manages and automates all your workflows.
- Thinkific. If you’re looking for an easy way to get your courses, subscription or membership pages, or freebie content out there, Thinkific might be the right solution out there. It’s intuitive and easy to use!
- Hello Sign. I use this software to get all of my legal documents signed. It’s simple. You can store a template if there’s a standard contract you have your clients sign!
- Siteground for trusty hosting that’s never given me issues.
- Mailchimp for getting started with email lists.
- Active Campaign for growing your email list and getting more strategic!
- Popup Ally
