When it comes to running your business, the programs and software you use behind the scenes can be your saving grace! Whether you’re brand new or your business is well established, a business owner’s to-do list is never-ending. Programs to simplify your business, streamline your operations, and keep you organized can make all the difference between smooth sailing and total overwhelm.
Here are my top 3 program recommendations to help your business run as smoothly as possible so you can free up time to focus on all the amazing things you want to accomplish with your business.
Do you keep track of clients using a planner? Have you ever forgotten that planner on your desk and felt totally lost without it? Or, do you have client information scattered throughout notebooks and emails only to find yourself scrambling at the last minute as you try to find the information you need?
Those are just a couple signs that it’s time to use programs to simplify your business. Using a client management system will ease your worries and will help you present yourself as the professional you are!
When I started my business, I knew I needed a way to organize client communication, invoices, and other important documents. Enter HoneyBook, one of my favorite time-saving tools!
If you’ve ever found yourself flustered during tax season because you have scattered receipts and numbers written on pads of paper, then it’s time to use accounting software.
Having access to accurate financial reports is beneficial in evaluating marketing efforts and feeling confident about your business’ finances. QuickBooks is great to help you stay on top of your money and be ready for tax season.
Keeping up with the ever-changing algorithm on your favorite social media platforms can feel like a full time job. With email marketing, you can get your content directly into your client’s inbox without worrying about pleasing the algorithm.
Plus, communicating with clients (potential clients, current clients, and past clients) outside of social media is important in nurturing your client relationship. ConvertKit is my favorite email software because of its functionality.
