Tools & resources
Below are some of my highly recommended tools and resources for small business owners & freelancers! *Please note that many of the links below are affiliate links, but I honestly wouldn't feature them here if I didn't use and love them myself!
File Storage & Backup
I make sure to backup everything onto Dropbox cloud storage. It also means I can access my files from anywhere, or on my phone when I'm out.
Google Apps & Gmail
For a professional email address using your domain I always recommend getting Gsuite, as it lets you use Gmail for your business, and gives you unlimited access to the Google Docs & Drive etc.
I love this software so much! There are so many great features such as automations, sequences, tagging and landing page builders.
As a designer, using Adobe Illustrator is part of my everyday work, so this is a necessity! I also use Adobe Photoshop for photo editing too.
All the magic happens on my trusty Macbook! It makes designing a dream and I love that I rarely have to worry about updates or security software (I'm too lazy for that!).
On the Awesome Plan (£8~ per month) I schedule my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. It's super easy to use on desktop & mobile.
This is my secret Pinteret weapon! I'll be explaining exactly how I use this for scheduling & looping in my Pinterest Marketing course.
Quick & Easy Blog Graphics
For my blog graphics (and creating social media post templates for clients) I use Canva, because it's seriously quick & simple to use. I also talk through how to use this in my Pinterest Marketing course.
