All my favorite tools - what I really use in my business

TOOLS I USE EVERYDAY

asana

PROJECT MANAGEMENT Asana

I start and stop my day with Asana. I learned that it doesn't matter which tool I use, it's more important that I stick with the tool I actually use it. I've tried others (Basecamp, Process Street, Trello...) and they have merits. If they work for you, great. For me, Asana was the easiest and I LOVE the smartphone app.

book like a boss

BOOKING+SALES Book Like a Boss

I use Book Like a Boss to manage my online appointments. I also use it for selling some services, especially the lower-tiered ones that don't require a proposal process. I often recommend it to clients who offer 1:1 coaching both by the hour and in packages and who don't need a full-scale shopping cart.

canva

DESIGN Canva

I use Canva (I have the Pro account) more than any other tool on this page. Sure, some projects require Photoshop and Illustrator, but for 99% of the social media graphics I create for my business or a client's business, Canva works best.

dubb

VIDEO Dubb

I like showing clients how to do things on their own. I used to provide "training" calls. Now, we have strategy calls instead. In between calls, I use Dubb to create "how-to" videos that my clients can watch (over and over if necessary!).

FAVORITE DIY RESOURCES

DESIGN TEMPLATES Basil&Bark

I love shortcuts. I recently admired a PDF one of my friends designed for her freebie. A fellow web designer, she admitted (secretly) that she used a shortcut - one of Alysha's templates. One look at Alysha's line of templates and I was sold. You can't go wrong with any of the templates on Basil&Bark. I personally invested in the lifetime membership.

LEGAL TEMPLATES Bobby Klinck

Ever wondered how people write their Privacy Policy, Disclaimer, and Terms of Use pages? Or, maybe you wondered if you needed those pages, too? (Hint - you do!) Bobby's Website Policy Pack is the easiest way to make sure your website has all these legal pages. (I loved it so much that I invested in his complete library of templates.)
