It is a good free platform to jot done ideas, draft blog posts,  daily to do’s or you can use it as a clipboard to write anything you want; personal or business.

 

You can also store pictures, screenshots, webpages, and even voice memos, just like using the notes on your phone.

 

This is similar to Google Keeps, Samsung Notes, iPhone notes, but unlike your phone notes, Evernote & Keeps is accessible on all devices.

Trello is a nice project management system that allows you to organize and prioritize projects, store and share your “chicken scratches” ideas, lists, etc to keep you and your business organized.

 

With Trello you’ll be able to assign your projects and keep track of all open projects, but more importantly, stay on track with your team.

Asana is also a nice project management system that allows you to organize and prioritize projects, store and share your “chicken scratches” ideas, lists, etc to keep you and your business organized.

After 19+ years in business and testing various hosting and domain companies I have to say this is one of my favorites.

  • Low cost
  • Fast & prompt service
  • Fast & Expert Technical support
  • “unmatched security
  • 24/7 assistance

As for domain purchase, you may still want to use GoDaddy.

MailChimp is an “all-in-one” marketing platform it comes with easy to use landing pages, CRM tools to help you grow your business start+grow…but, more importantly, comes with a FREE PLAN!

 

I’ve been using Mailchimp for years and so far it’s been the best platform for me.  But as your business grows so does your cost in doing business and therefore the next big thing is Convert Kit or ClickFunnels

Faviola the CEO Hustler

Convertkit is an easy to use- email service provider that was designed specifically for bloggers, podcasters, and businesses looking to build an audience.

  • Great automation builder and editor
  • Simple segmentation emails
  • Auto resend broadcast to un-open emails
  • Lead magnet

But compared to Mailchimp, Mailchimp is still the popular one

ClickFunnels is an easy to use; system to Market, Sell and Deliver your products all online!

 

However, this system is a “high-priced” system and usually not recommended for start-up businesses. 

 

I always recommend starting with Mailchimp, as your business grows to upgrade to Convert Kit and once your “email list” has grown you can upgrade to a Top-Notch platform such as Click Funnels or LeadPages.

If you have WordPress, this is (my), Faviola the CEO Hustler’s FAVOURITE!!!

 

I love the plugin and all the pre-built templates that help you build your  website and create beautiful landing pages. 

 

If your like me someone who loves change and wants to be unique (without breaking the bank and with some time on your hands) then this might be for you!

 

This is literally a drag and drop page builder it’s been a game-changer for me and I know that It will be a game changer for those on a limited to no budget and even those who can’t afford a fancy lead gen software.

 

Now I do recommend upgrading to the $50/year plan to unlock additional and better features for your site.

Want to create a website using amazing templates and you can customize it to your needs then I also recommend this platform.  It’s easy to use and cost-effective.

  • Low cost
  • Free hosting
  • You can connect your Domain
  • Excellent storage
  • Google Analytics
  • Point of Sale
  • Email Campaigns
  • Appointment Scheduling

All these features are important for your site.  Similar to Wix, but it’s completely up to you and your preference. (I personally used this when I first started my business from 2000-2003)

For any business, you need to have online exposure and if you’re a start-up business using a user-friendly platform is super important, but also using a Free platform when you first start is even better

  • Low cost
  • Free hosting
  • You can connect your Domain
  • Excellent storage
  • Google Analytics

All these features are important for your site.  (I personally used this when I first started my business from 2003-2007)

WordPress.com

Create a free website to promote your business or blog  It comes with 100s of plugins, customizable mobile-ready themes, it also has free hosting very easy to use platform.

  • Free to Low cost
  • Free hosting or connect your domain
  • Auto resend broadcast to un-open emails
  • Lead magnets and so much more.

After struggling with web designers I decided to create my own website using WordPress and I love it! Easy to use, so many plug-ins, so many tools and I’ve been using it since 2007.

When it comes to building a website whether your doing it yourself or hiring someone to do it, it can be very stressful and overwhelming; however, if you have the right platform (DIY) it can make your life so much easier, right?

Now, I’ve never used this platform before; however, I’ve heard wonders about the platform.

 

  • Built-in Editor
  • Drag & Drop features
  • Auto resend broadcast to un-open emails
  • All-inclusive; Lead magnet, Quiz builder, membership platform, landing pages, online courses, etc

We all need a great accounting program to keep all our expenses centralized, but more importantly have access to:

  • Invoicing
  • Estimates
  • Jobs
  • Payments, etc

What better platform than an online platform to take with you EVERYWHERE!
