There are so many software tools out there - how do you know which ones to use?
On this page, I've listed the software and tools I use and HIGHLY RECOMMEND...
(this list was originally created for #Parentpreneurs who are online coaches and consultants, but the software can be used with any business and not just for the purposes listed)
I've also broken the list down into free software (or ones that have a free version) if you're starting out and paid ones that provide even more efficiency and allow you to build that "semi-retire" lifestyle so you have more time to make memories with your loved ones.
(for more information on the softwares and how to use them, you can take a look at this document here)
RECOMMENDED FREE SOFTWARE
Video & Screen Recording / Creating Your Course
Save & Deliver Your Program
Easily store and share files and folders. You can create your program or course as a Folder and then when someone signs up for your program, just give them access to the folder with the various modules or milestones. When you're starting out, the value and transformation are much more important than fancy software and membership sites. Sign-up here.
I've started writing and drawing in my presentations and have found them convert much higher. Drawing on the iPad makes it more interactive and keeps someone's attention better than staring at a static slide. I've purchased multiple note taking and drawing apps for my iPad and none of them are better than the free OneNote app. Sign-up here.
Stripe is a great way to take payments when you're starting out. It connects to thousands of softwares, is quick and reliable. As you grow (or if you have a higher than 1% refund rate), you'll want to use something different. But this is by far one of the best payment processing platforms for new businesses. Sign-up here.
Client Support / Interactions
Facebook Groups are a great (and free) way to interact with your clients. Facebook allows you to create Guides, go Live, upload files, and like and comment on each other's posts. The only issue with Facebook Groups is Facebook doesn't show your post to everyone in the group. You need to make sure they turn on notifications. Sign-up here.

RECOMMENDED PAID SOFTWARE
Internal Communication & Project Management (combination of Slack, Trello, UpClick/Asana)
Nifty has replaced Slack, Trello, and Click-Up/Asana for us for internal communications, project management and organizational things. It's a powerful software that we have absolutely loved and has allowed us to be more efficient by having all internal company-related things in one place. Sign-up here.
We needed a platform to house our courses, a place where members could communicate and engage with us and each other and where we could help hold them accountable and track their progress. UpCoach is a single software solution that we are absolutely loving. UpCoach replaced having Slack, private Facebook Group, and Kajabi to fulfill on our coaching programs. If you signed up for our free mini-course, you saw the power of UpCoach. Sign-up here.
Audio, Video & Screen Recording & Editing
Professional Email Account
All-In-One Marketing/CRM/Sales Platform
The best all-in-one marketing platforms. We replaced ClickFunnels, ActiveCampaign, Kajabi, Calendly and JotForm with Fractal-CRM... giving us a single platform to run our businesses and saving about a thousand dollars a month. Unlimited funnels, websites, calendars, team members and more. They really are the only "Infinitely Scalable" marketing platform. Sign-up here.
Automated Facebook Prospecting & CRM
Content Creation (Text)
Another awesome content generation software. In fact, I started with Jasper prior to finding WordHero. Jasper has lots of templates, a better community, more users, and amazing training and value videos. I have found it also produces a little bit higher quality content than WordHero. The downside? It is quite a bit more expensive. I recommend you check them both out and sign-up for the one that most aligns with what you're looking for. Sign-up here.
Images & Graphics
If you can upgrade to the paid version and get the additional features, I highly recommend it. Not a day goes by that I don't use Canva. I use Canva to create 95% of my graphics and images. I also crop photos, create logos, make YouTube thumbnails and a whole lot more. Very easy to use and highly recommend. Sign-up here.
There you go... the software that we personally use and recommend.
These platforms help us run our business, create content, provide value, go live and deliver our programs.
If you're a #Parentpreneur looking to build that "semi-retired" lifestyle, you need to learn to leverage your time. These software help you do just that.
