Maybe 50% of my clients are also running small businesses or "companies of one" and many are just starting out on their journey. Over the first few years of my business I used allll the systems and have gradually whittled it down to a handful that I LOVE. If you're new to biz systems and tools, send me a message as I'd be more than happy to chat about my experiences to help you pick the right ones for you.

NOTE: Some of the links below are affiliate links (meaning I may get a small commission if you decide to use them too), but they never cost you any extra and I only recommend tried and tested tools that I love.

FOR CLIENT EXPERIENCE

DUBSADO

FOR SIMPLE CLIENT BOOKINGS

ACUITY SCHEDULING

For an incredibly easy to use platform to send beautiful emails to your community, Flodesk is the best I have found by far (and a startup by womxn!). Get 30 days free and 50% off for life.

To create a gorgeous and simple experience for your clients my answer is Dubsado.  Takes a bit of setup, but once you're up and running it's fantastic. First 3 clients free and get 20% off your first month or whole year.

I don't use Acuity anymore but it's a brilliant and simple place to start when you book clients in your business. There's a free plan but I had the $10 a month plan which is awesome. Slick and easy.

CANVA

FOR ALL MY CLIENT CALLS

ZOOM

Trello has simply been a life-saver for me! I have tried ALL the ways of organising my life and my work, lists, software, notes apps, your name it and keep coming back. I bloody love Trello and use it daily!

I've been a Canva user since the get-go and I love it just as much now as I did in 2015! Easily customisable templates, upload your brand fonts and images and so flippin easy to use. 10/10 recommend.

I started my business using Skype but soon discovered that Zoom was easier to use, more reliable, has the ability to (easily) record calls and is great for group calls. I haven't looked back since.

Not only does G-Suite host my email domain (linked to my biz URL), I also get the full suite of Google cloud-based apps and 1TB of Google Drive storage. I couldn't be without these apps now.

Yes I can't help myself, I've been a Microsoft Office user for soooo long (I even taught it years ago), that I can't let it go. Google Docs are brill but sometimes you need something more!

I love Moo.com, their stationery quality is without doubt the best around for an "off-the-shelf solution. I especially like them for those extra touches like stickers and branded envelopes.
