My Business Tools
LIke all business owners, I have a lot of different tools that I use to run my business.
Over time, I have come to realise how difficult it is to find the right tool for you and that getting a recommendation from someone can make a huge difference. To this end, I started thinking about affiliate programmes.
I'll be honest, I used to view these with a high degree of skepticisim, however after some investigation, I know know that - for the most part - they are mutually beneficial. The person recommending gets a thank you, the person using the recommendation finds out about a tool they may not have known aobut and, depending on the tool, may even get a bonus and the company itself gets a new customer.
My fears about the affiliate links meaning the user was charged more are unfounded - or at least for any that I have chosen to be associated with.
What you will find below are the tools that I use. If it is a tool that for some reason I only use occasionally - for example, some project management tools are not suitable for my purposes, however I have evaluated any on here - that will be made clear.
Acuity has made my life so much simpler by allowing people to book directly with me. I use it all the time!
I use a couple tools for video, depending on what I am trying to achieve. Animoto is briliant for structured, fantastic looking videos. It is quick, easy and surprisingly powerful!
I use Thinkific for courses and downloads. I like the functionality it offers to course builders and the ease of use for students.
Demio is a webinar tool that I use extensively both for debinars (webinars by debra!) and for my podcast interviews.
Their support team is amazing and the tool itself fabulous.
