How do I make running my business easier?
The answer is outsourcing! But I don’t mean I’ve hired someone, that was definitely way out of my price range. No, what I did is super accessible and something you could do too.
By using the following services, brands and tools to help with my social media, design and marketing I’ve not only got super quick and professional results, but the whole process has been amazingly stress-free too.
On this page are all brands that I use myself. And I know they can not only save you a whole heap of time, but also GET YOU RESULTS.
(Full disclosure… I do get a small commission if you sign up to some of these brands using my link. However, I recommend tools and brands I use, trust and that I believe you’ll find useful in your business.)
Want to know how I manage my social media content, so it doesn’t overwhelm me? Well, it’s pretty simple I batch create and then schedule, using Plann (along with my tried and tested strategies, of course).
It’s super intuitive and easy to use (I LOVE the easy drag and drop feature) and you can schedule content to Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and LinkedIn – all from the same place!
If you’re serious about growing your social media audiences (without spending all your time there) then Plann is a must and you can get your FREE TRIAL if you click here. (If you upgrade within 30 days of the trial, we both get $10! )
Email marketing is absolutely crucial in this day and age. But man, the tech can be time consuming on some platforms!
So would it shock you if I said I can write an email newsletter in half an hour…and they look beautiful?!
Flodesk is a brilliant new platform that I absolutely love because it not only makes creating super beautiful emails a breeze. It also makes collecting customers’ email addresses really easy too, with a range of optimised forms (including pop-ups).
Beautiful graphics are a must for any business these days, and with Canva you can create them really easy and for FREE!
Canva is the best graphic design tool for non-designers out there, in my opinion. There are beautiful templates to create all sorts of social media, website and printable graphics so so easily.
If you don’t have Canva you’re missing out big time!
Need an email for your website domain? (yes I’m talking to you if you’re still currently using that free Gmail account for your business!)
Then you need to sign up for a Google Workspace account. Using a free email address will mean your emails will often go to spam instead of your customers, but for less than a fiver a month you can get your own customised domain address with Google Workspace.
Not only that, you also get a whole office system in the cloud, to create and store all your work documents!
