No matter your business size or the stage you are at in your business journey – implementing and using the right tools can allow you to:
There are literally thousands of tools on the market for all areas of business – ranging from simple screen snapshots to complete robust funnels (in-depth marketing workflows).
It takes a little bit of patience and a strategy to ensure you are using the right tools for what you need, and the stage you are at. After all, you don’t want to end up with a load of tools that you don’t use and paid a lot of money for.
With the tools that I feature, I have tried and tested and believe that they are an asset for most all business types. These tools (or alternatives) are the CORE tools that a business needs to get started, maintain or scale.
There are so many other programs for different operations that I can promote, but this list is to get you started!
Tip: if you are committed to a tool and know it will be one that you’ll use consistently in your business (and complements your other tools), take a look at platforms like AppSumo – who partner with brands and developers to release lifetime, one-off payment tools with added features.
Main benefit: No more monthly or expensive annual fees. [I have a number of tools that I use and have lifetime premium features for a one-off fee (most deals are US$49).]
Bonus Tip: Don’t stress or rush and sign-up for new tools without researching.
It is essential to have good tools, but it is also essential that the tools should be used in the right way.
