TOOLS OF THE TRADE

Searching for tools, software, and resources can be painstakingly time consuming when you have a business to run!

Having the right set of tools for your business is of huge importance to enable you to get more traffic to your website, gain new leads and turn those leads into sales.  

I've put together here a list of my favourite tools you can use in your business to get you started!  Some of these I use in my businesses and others I know are great from people in the industry I speak with.  Some are free tools and other are paid but costs are listed clearly on their website.

Please note that some of these tools may be affiliate links, which means if you purchase them by clicking on the links, I may get compensated (and at absolutely no extra cost to you) - which means I can keep the Academy running at our amazingly low prices for you!

 Another great email management software, but not as easy to set up as Mad Mimi.   However , it does have some great resources such as segmentation & groups so you can really tailor your marketing emails.   Mail Chimp  also lets you create Facebook & Instagram ads right from the Dashboard, which is really helpful!  Again there is a  free trial  or paid plans.
