Episode 34 – FREE TOOLS TO RUN YOUR BIZ. Having the right tools and resources to run your business is essential. Leslie is launching her online business and looking for free tools to run her business better.
I’m just starting my online business. I’m a marketing strategist, and I will be offering 1:1 coaching session to women managing their online businesses. I’d like to know what FREE tools are available to help me manage my business. I’d love to use free tools to avoid spending extra money since I’m just starting. Thanks.
Here are some free tools to run your business.
I love using Google Docs for file storage because it lets me create and format documents and work with others. Google Docs allows for real-time collaboration when working with employees or consultants. Everybody has access to the latest version of all our documents.
Zoom provides easy-to-use video communications. Zoom’s Basic license gives you unlimited time for one-on-one sessions, but group meetings are limited to 40 minutes. I love using Zoom for meetings with clients and with my team.
Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. It’s like a whiteboard filled with notes, each as a task for you and your team.
I use it to keep track of my Q&A Video Series, Blog posts, and social media posts. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in process.
Another tip: CANVA: CANVA is a free graphic design platform that makes creating custom graphics quick. I love to use Canva to create posts, lead magnets, or slides for my online programs or masterclasses. In addition, they offer a PRO version, but you can do many things with the free version.
Remember, as Richard Branson said, a big business starts small.
