These are the tools, apps, programs, + software I use to grow my business (and keep it functioning).

*This page does contain affiliate links, but I would only recommend resources I know + love!

 
 

Creative Market*:

Great resource for fonts, patterns, and other design needs. Super inexpensive and lots of variety!



Slack:

I love Slack as a tool for communication with clients, especially when they are a part of a larger team. It's so easy and quick and doesn't keep me bogged down in my inbox.



Tailwind*:

I finally made the switch over to Tailwind and immediately saw a huge upswing in my website traffic. It's simple to use and will definitely bring in results.



Zoom*:

What I use to host meetings. It's simple, straightfoward, and has a free version! I use the paid version so that I can record videos and host webinars!

 
 

Hellosign*:

A professional way to send contracts to clients that is easy to use (perfect for starting out - it's free!)



ConvertKit*:

Hands-down my favorite tool. Perfect for emailing your audience with newsletters, sales funnels, and more. Learn more here or here.



Google Apps:

Necessary for so many reasons - your email, Google Docs, etc. This is great for storing things like blog posts on the cloud!

Bench.Co*:

Working with this company for bookkeeping is a legit DREAM. My link gets you an additional free month on your trial! (AKA 2 months of bookkeeping fo' free!)



Squarespace:

My preferred platform for my own site and for building out client sites. Simple to use and to teach others, and a stellar support staff.



Kajabi*:

How I distribute digital products. A great platform because it can grow with your business - offers memberships, courses, and digital delivery. Fully integrated and easy to work with, plus a great support team!



Styled Stock Society*:

A great resource for beautiful, unique stock photos for your business. (Plus Elle has amazing related resources + templates to use!)

 
 

The Contract Shop*:

Protecting yourself and your business should be a pretty high priority. Literally so many contracts here for whatever your business venture may be.



DropBox:

Where I store my whole business. Inexpensive for a ton of storage and easy to use on a Mac. Makes sending files to clients a breeze!



Ultimate Bundles*:

An affiliate program that I have worked with for over a year and highly recommend.

 

Essentialism by Greg McKeown*:

A legiiiit game changer for my business. I highly recommend to anyone that feels stressed trying to do #allthethings and wants to get back to doing what they love.



The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg*:

A book I read recently that has be re-evaluating the habits I want in my life and my business. This is great if you're ready to start thinking of your business as something bigger than just a one-person show!



Building a Storybrand by Donald Miller*:

This is a fantastic book if you are struggling with marketing, reaching and talking to your ideal customers, and your overall message. I can't recommend it enough - it even has an interactive tool that goes along with reading that is going to make marketing seem WAY less scary. A must read!
