Resources To Run Your Freedom-Based Business From Anywhere
Don’t fall for slick marketing on over-priced highly hyped online tools and resources!
Tools are important to run your business, but some companies are so good at marketing that you start believing that you NEED their tool in order to succeed in online business and attract clients.
This is totally not true!
The tools and resources won’t matter if you are out of alignment, your core messaging is off, and you don’t know how to market and sell your products and services.
However, once you have these other pieces in places, basic tools and automation can support your business without having to outsource to humans.
Outsourcing to humans and having a big team can be highly expensive and a headache to manage.
Erica always tries to automate before resorting to outsourcing.
Remember it isn’t the money you make – it is the money you keep that makes a difference in your lifestyle.
So don’t fall for over-priced online tools and resources… but don’t play small and be cheap with your business either.
Erica has over 20 years of research – a never-ending quest for the best tools to support, run and automate your freedom business.
Erica cuts through all the marketing hype and looks for functionality, productivity, a friendly user interface, and a great value for the price.
She is constantly testing and evaluating tools and resources to help you run your freedom based business from anywhere.
Here Are Erica’s Current Top Picks Of Tools and Resources…
Your Website Needs A Nice Place To Live
Erica and her team have spent YEARS trying to find a hosting company that had both the technical specifications needed AND amazing customer service.
We switched hosting companies every few months for years (always in July for some reason).
July 2018 rolled around and our current hosting completely failed us in customer service and the technical side of things.
We didn’t want to go through moving yet again… but we had no choice.
Then one day Erica heard a whisper while running… “Dreamhost”.
Dreamhost has certainly lived up to its name!
Create, Collaborate, Share… and Then Share Again
CoSchedule is an easy drag-and-drop marketing calendar that allows you to plan, create, and promote all of your marketing and content all in one place.
It saves you time and helps you grow your audience through smart marketing plans and efficient team collaboration.
Just get this. You’ll thank us later. ;)
The Money Is In The List
Don’t chance your number one company asset to a free email marketing service provider.
On the flip side – don’t over complicate or overspend on this part of your business either (don’t fall for Infusionsoft).
We use Aweber to run our email marketing and sales funnels.
Accounting Built For Entrepreneurs
If you have a real business and not a hobby you need a legit accounting software.
But most accounting programs are written for accountants, not entrepreneurs.
Freshbooks has the entrepreneurs needs in mind and created a system just for us.
It is in the cloud – so you can access it and use it from anywhere and track your receipts on the fly instead of carrying around all that receipt “trash” with you.
Way More Than Just Scheduling A Scheduling Tool!
