Tech, Tools & Resources I love
These are all the tools, and businesses that I highly recommend. Some of these links are affiliate links, which means if you decide to sign up for a service, I may get a small commission. I only recommend businesses services that I have used myself in my own business or for a client.
I hope you find this helpful. I will add more to this as I discover new great tools and services (which feels like all the time!) Jump on my list for more insight into what I get up to in the world of nerdy business stuff.
Email Marketing Tools
I also use FloDesk for FAB which I love for this side of my business – Check it out here and get 50% off.
Graphy was easy to set up initially. I have it hooked into to a ThriveCart checkout via a Zap so that when a member joins they get added to Graphy straight away and recieve the welcome email from the ConvertKit connection to ThriveCart.
I can add my course content really quickly to both of these which is ideal when
Social Media Marketing Tools
I was using Social Pilot pretty much since they began and it was my absolute favourite tool to run all of my social media accounts from. It was especially helpful with #bigartboost so I could really keep on top of the community. I would still be with them if I hadn’t found Publer. I got a deal through AppSumo so I made the switch as of course, it meant one less business expense with the then lifetime deal. I also use Planoly in tandem with Publer.
I also recommend Hootsuite as a second choice to Social Pilot or Publer.
Client Management – Contract & Invoicing Tools
Dubsado – It’s love. This makes my life so much easier and cuts out a shit ton of admin.
I used to spend way too much time onboarding and prepping monthly invoices, and now Dubsado does the lot. – It’s like having a team member who does all the things I’d rather not be doing so I can crack in with the good stuff.
If you use my affiliate link and drop me an email with the details, I’ll give you $30 to spend on templates.
17hats – Used to love it before I met Dubsado. A great option if Dubsado isn’t for you.
Checkout / Sales Platforms
ThriveCart – The highest converting cart for marketers. Create high converting cart pages, upsells & affiliate campaigns with ease. I use this with for a few of my clients and the integration and set up is fast, smooth and I just bloody love it. I also use ThriveCart for my planners, courses and templates and I am currently working on my affiliate program which is exciting as I have put this off for years.
StudioCart – A plugin that allows you to offer one-time payments, instalment plan, subscriptions, coupons, order bumps and 1-click upsells right inside your WordPress website.
Project Management Tools
Asana – Honestly, this one is my favourite but I am always tinkering around with other new apps that I discover. I pay for the Pro version because I love the rules and dependencies features. They help me stay extremely organised. ClickUp is a great alternative. Trello is a great too but I don’t recommend this for teams – Use it for yourself or for very small projects.
Airtable – I love using Airtable in combination with another project management tool like Asana. It saves me so much time.
Website Hosting Services
As I am based in the UK, I wanted to move to a UK based company so I chose Guru Cloud Hosting which has been absolutely brilliant. – I’m very happy with my decision to move. If you are in the UK, I highly recommend them. They are so on the ball. 🥳
