These are the tools I actually use to run my business. 

Good tools are the backbone of running a successful small business.

 

When you use my link, some of the companies do provide little kick-back to me like a free month (woohoo!), but feel free to just type the URLs in the web browser too.  I share because I love, getting a free month is just a little icing on the cake.

Dubsado

Dubsado is a client management and invoicing system.  My Contact form is an embedded Dubsado form that automatically adds my new customer's information and sends them an email based on why they wanted to contact me.  I also use it for invoicing, payments, contracts, customer portal and workflow. With payments, you can allow your clients to use their bank and save on credit card fees.

Content Snare

I use Content Snare to gather all of the images and text needed to build a beautiful website.  It makes the process so easy for both the client and myself.  It divides everything down to bite-size pieces and let's me share examples and helpful suggestions. I don't have to send any reminder emails because Content Snare automatically sends emails when a submission deadline is on the horizon.

I know, you're not a web developer, so here are some other great ways you might use Content Snare beyond gathering documents, images and text from your clients. Think RFP gathering, social media content gathering, collecting speaker info for a conference, podcast guest info and files, documents and contracts and more.

Squarespace

Of course, Squarespace is my website platform of choice.  I've written an entire blog post about it

My new web design clients get 20% off their first year (woohoo!). If you want to design on your own, use the Squarespace Discount Code GIMME10 to get 10% off your first year. Win-win!

I don't get a kick-back either way, just the joy of knowing you are going to have a website that looks great and is easy to maintain!
