“Ummm, what do you use for…?” These are the tools I use and recommend when running a digital business:
For email marketing
I’ve used ActiveCampaign for years. It has powerful automation features (including a visual automation builder) and good deliverability rates. Plus, it’s very reasonably priced.
For Invoicing + Accounting
With Quickbooks and my Monthly Accounting Routine, I know exactly how profitable my business is on any day of the year. Plus, you can send e-invoices that can be paid online.
For Landing + sales pages
Divi is a visual drag-and-drop website builder that I have to create landing pages, sales pages, and my entire website. It’s really easy to use (for all you non-techies). The creators are constantly putting out updates and cool, new features.
for online proposals
Better Proposals helps you look even more pro. You can send online proposals that can be signed electronically. The layouts look amazing. And you can track analytics on proposals sent. I also rely the templates feature to save hours of time.
for Project management
Asana is the tool I use (and love) the most. I manage ALL of my systems, processes, and workflows inside of it. It has been a game changer for accountability, consistency, and time saved. I get more done in less time than ever before.
Use discount code “PaigePoutiainen” when upgrading.
for Web hosting
WP Engine is fast and reliable for WordPress sites. The feature I enjoy most is the ability to clone my site and make changes or update themes and plugins in a secondary space. That way, the live site isn’t affected if an update causes a crash.
for course hosting
I’ve tried a lot of course platforms, both as a student and as a course creator. I’ve been the most impressed with Teachable’s user interface and overall experience for the student and when creating new courses.
