These are the tools I use everyday that keep my online business humming..

So many people ask me which tools I use and so, here they are. I have tested every recommendation here and use them today to run my business.. 

 

Website

I created my first website from scratch on Wordpress.  It was great putting my html and css skills to use.   However, once I needed a website for Splendid Circle, I went with Squarespace.  It's easy to customize, has tons of cool features and it's actually fun to use! I highly recommend it.


Building Email Lists

Email marketing can be a headache but it's essential to growing your business. I've used other tools in the past. What I've learned is that online tools that can do several different things well can be game changer.  If it's also a pleasure to use, then it's a no-brainer too! 


Automation

No matter what type of business you run, you need a sales funnel with landing pages, order forms and more in place to attract new customers and sell your products and services. ClickFunnels is my go to for profitable sales funnels that are automated.  Get your free 14 day trial here.


Scheduling Online Appointment

This is a great productivity tool that lets you connect with leads and potential customers you encounter online either through your website or social media.  There are many out there that work well but I use Calendly. It's easy to use and has a feature that asks them specific questions when they make the appointment.


Surveys

No matter what stage of business you're in, surveys are a powerful way to understand customer needs.  Creating and running surveys can be a great way to do routine market research and learn about the specific needs and pain points of your target market.  I use them all the time! I know most people use Surveymonkey or google typeform, but I really enjoy Surveygizmo. It has a clean interface, great functionality and an amazing data analysis feature!
