Products discussed in today’s show
HUBSPOT:
So right out of the gate is my favourite CRM, Hubspot. You can grab a FREE version of this or the paid version comes in at $50 a seat. The $50 is worth every penny for ambitious growing businesses, but certainly start with the free version, you will not find anything better on the market.
MAILCHIMP:
Email still rules, with the average open rate still being close to 20%, email dwarfs social and pretty much any other form of outreach. Mailchimp is the way forward for me in 2018 and frankly has been pretty much since its inception.
ZAPIER:
Remove double entry with zappers automation tools, add your date in one place and let Zapier fill in the blanks on all your other platforms or software.
ZOHO SOCIAL:
Be sure you have omnipresence, with Zoho Social. This super smart and sleek social media management tool is a must, and compared to most other platforms leads considerably in usability.
TODOIST:
Never miss a beat with the ultimate To Do list app, I have mine hooked up with another automation kit called IFFT. So I can tell Siri on my iPhone to remind me to do something, and IFFT will ensure its added to my to-do list and reminds me until it is completed.
ASANA:
Planning your social media and marketing content shouldn’t be left to scraps of paper, with Asana you have a really great piece of software that can help to give you complete clarity over the coming week, month or year. Also great if you collaborate with teams.
GSUITE/GMAIL:
I’m a big fan of Google for business, it goes where I go and never fails you. Power up your email with Gmail for business and dial into Googles bulletproof email, the app is pretty sweet too.
QUICKBOOKS / XERO:
You’ve gotta to stay on top of your numbers, and a good accounting piece of software is the way to go. I am however considering making a change back to Xero. So check them both out…
Also, I cant forget important kits such as Google Drive and Dropbox, Calm the meditation app I use daily, seven for my 7-minute workouts, and things like booking.com app and Uber.
