September 29, 2020

5 tools you need in your business now!

Trust me I know running a business can be overwhelming, I totally get it because I run three…ekkk! I have found the tools that work best for me in my businesses are the ones that help me stay organized and require little from me after I initially set them up. I mean who wants to be constantly updating ALL THE THINGS all the time?!

Below I am sharing my favorite five tools that I use in my business. 

Dubsado for business

Dubsado is a CRM that I use for my wedding photography business. I have high volume inquiries and this is a huge help in organizing all of my prospective clients. I also use Dubsado to send out contracts, organize all the emails between myself and clients as well as vendor communications and to send timelines and updates.

Planoly for business

Planoly is a fantastic visual planning tool that allows me to create calendars to plan my Instagram content, curate the content, schedule posts and analyze my engagement.

Acuity for small business

I have three businesses, a wedding photography, branding and social media coaching business and I keep two of my businesses (coaching & branding) all organized under Acuity This is a super awesome scheduling tool that my clients can book a call with me, find session times and book a session and pay all in one. Heck to the YES!!

Canva a great tool for small business

Canva is probably one of my most used business tools.  I use Canva daily to create Instagram Stories, Reels, Facebook templates, Client boards… you name it!. I have the pro account and it is worth every penny. I pay around $120 per year.

Flodesk for small business

My client emails…yep I made them in Flodesk! I am simply amazed at the ease of using this email marketing tool, and it is SO PRETTY! Flodesk is  giving their beta members (that’s me) a chance to offer you 50% off of your subscription so you can lock in your rate at $19 a month. And that is FOREVER!! https://flodesk.com/c/AMALIE  Code is AMALIE
