Don’t spend even one more moment trawling the Googs for another save-my-bacon app, downloadable, tutorial, or guide.
Because I’ve done that (for years) for you.
Part of the joy of being mates with a tech nerd is I always know all about all the game-changing resources available – what’s incredible, what to avoid, and – if I’ve spotted a gap – I’ve created something to fill it.
These resources are curated based on over a decade of business-owning experience and I only shout about what I’ve tried and loved. They’ll build your profitability, make life easier, and tick the boxes of the trifecta – health, wealth, happine
what I’m reading
in the home
01 : Siteground
Oh, have I been through some website hosts!?! Where you host your website is almost more important than its design. Hosting on a bad server can have huge consequences for your website now and in the future. Google will hate you, for starters, if your host is slow.
It’s why I love Siteground; that and their great customer service and rather enticing sign up packages.
03 : Canva
I spent hours trying to learn all the Adobe Suite when I started out thinking that I needed this to create beautiful and high quality graphics.
There is a much easier way, Canva is a online graphics website where you can create beautiful graphics by simply dragging and dropping your content. There is a library of customisable templates available in Shop Lauren June to get your started.
02 : Elegant Themes
I believe that you should be able to make changes, updates, and maintain all your website. Once my team build a website we want to hand it over to clients and allow them to continue to grow. (Although we are always available to help!)
It’s why I love Elegant Themes, the builder element is easy to edit and add content as your business grows, no CSS knowledge required.
04 : Membervault
If there is a course platform I’ve tried it! Build your first course can be expensive, especially when it’s not a tried product. I love that MemberVault offers a free account with up to 3 products and they don’t take away any of the functionality.
Membervault also has expcetional community support both within their FB Group and direct from the MV Team.
05 : Asana
You might have heard me talk about Asana if you’ve been around here for a while….. or actually a short time!
Asana is my first love, it keep all the moving parts of my business, well moving. I use to be that person that would be awake at 3am worrying about all the things I had forgotten to get done. Now I have Asana setup to be my brain, it’s more than a to do list it’s a full project management system and as an added bonus it’s free to use.
05 : Active Campaign
I actually had my business on a very expensive platform before I found Active Campaign. When you can get plans for as little as $9 USD per month and still get access to all the amazing features this product has to offer, there is no other choice.
AC has the best features that bigger names like Infusionsoft offer, but without the same price tag.
06 : ThriveCart
When you are a sales funnel lover like me this cart is it – ThriveCart is sexy as heck.
It allows you to integrate your cart into multiple platforms and do some serious strategic selling.
The best thing; it works. I’ve lost a lot of money in the past through other carts not remembering to bill clients!
08 : Dubsado
If Asana is my first love, Dubsado is my second. Dubsado is your client management system, this is where you can automate your client onboarding, payments, contracts, reminders and most importantly see what you need to be working on. It gives you back time!
This has actually saved me money because, after the one-time setup, now I don’t need my VA send emails back and forward to clients on my behalf.
09 : Planoly
I’m often asked how I get everything done in a day and the answer is block scheduling.
Planoly allows you to create your IG Posts and Stories and schedule them to automatically post. You can create a library of hashtags so you don’t have refer back to your Google Docs to find all your research. I also love that you can visually see your feed enabling you to create a beautiful layout.
11 : Social Bee
Invest in apps that give you time! It’s the only thing you can’t buy!
Social Bee does what I can’t, it’s consistent on socials for me. I’ve tried for a really long time to to regularly post on my social platforms then I realised I need help. Rather than outsourcing I choose Social Bee, it’s really easy to get along with….. and does my socialising just how I want.
10 : Tailwind
I’m pretty new to Pinterest, for so long I thought it was too hard to be creating all the pins and loading them to the right boards.
Tailwind makes this a dream, now it only takes about an hour a week to create and schedule all my pins so I get traffic back to my freebies, blogs, podcast, and YouTube channel.
12 : Leadpages
Getting your next offer live can be stressful but then to add into all the tracking and analytics you need to make smart decision can be another level.
Leadpages make this easy, in a short amount of time you can create a beautiful new page and link to your Google Analytics and FB Pixel so you can track your conversion and make smart decisions with your marketing strategy.
