Freebies / Tools + Tech

Tools and technology are the life blood of any online business. They allow us to systemise, to automate and save time, energy and heartache.

Over the 6 years of running my online business, and helping over 1,000 with theirs, these are the tools and tech I swear by.

FYI I’m an affiliate for some of these, so if you sign up I may well receive a commission. But rest assured, I only ever recommend something I love myself.


KAJABI

This HAS to be the top of my list. Kajabi is a phenomenal all-in-one solution for online business owners as it gives you:

Course/Membership/Program Software
Landing Pages
Checkouts that integrate with Stripe and Paypal
Funnel system
Email system
Affiliate system
And so much more

I literally run my business on here. In fact I was one of the founders and have seen it grow from strength to strength over the years.

Bonus offer: If you sign up to Kajabi through my affiliate link up there, I will run a live session with you and show you how I structure my back-end in Kajabi and advise you on your first steps. Just email us here with the email address you signed up with and once we’ve verified that you’re part of our affiliate list, we’ll fix up a time.


MEMBERVAULT

Now, although I fully recommend Kajabi as it’s an all in one solution, if the price tag doesn’t work for you right now, do check at Membervault as an interim solution for courses, programs, membership sites etc.

THRIVE CART

Although Kajabi has a checkout option, those in the UK will need to have VAT options which aren’t yet included in Kajabi.

Enter stage left, Thrive Cart.

This awesome checkout software integrates with Stripe and Paypal and includes all taxes, including VAT and EU VAT. They also send VAT invoices.

ACTIVE CAMPAIGN

This is a great email system that has both funnel, automation, and CRM options. I run all of my funnels through it, in a much simpler way than a lot of the other email software on the market.

STREAMYARD

I adore this tool! It allows me to run livestreams directly to Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn, plus I can go live simultaneously in my Facebook Group and Facebook Page. It’s fab for interviews, panels and has branding options to go-pro.

TYPEFORM

I use this SO much! Typeform is a platform for creating surveys, and I use it for a number of purposes. Firstly, these surveys are a great way to carry out market research or interview people for your blog posts. I also like to create intake questionnaires for my one-on-one clients and masterminders – Typeform is the best way to do that. It’s ridiculously easy to use, it’s easy to customise, and it’s easy to review your responses.

MOONSIGHT

So this one is GENIUS! If you’re anything like me, you’re affected hugely by the moon and planets. Well this amazing tool gives you two digital 2020 calendars that you can add to both iCal and Google Cal with summaries of activity and advice on what you should plan in on those dates, and what you should avoid.

Buy it. It’s brilliant.

TRELLO

Trello, like Asana, is a project planning tool that can be used for just about anything. I like to plan launches in Trello (both for me and for my clients). It’s also really easy to create planning and project management templates to share, so I often use it as a resource in my mastermind.

GOOGLE DOCS

Google Docs is essentially Google’s version of a cloud-based Microsoft Office. You’ve got the documents, you’ve got the spreadsheets, you’ve got the presentations, you’ve got the forms, the drawings, and more.

You can create and share these files with whoever you like. You can brand them up. You can collaborate in real time. It’s a one-size-fits-all kind of tool.

CANVA

Canva is a brilliant resource to create stunning images, even if you have zero design skills.

Bonus: If you’d love to create beautifully designed, viral imagery for social media, then this package will be perfect for you! 100 pre designed images you can edit and put into your own brand colours inside of Canva.

AMAZON S3

Amazon S3 is the system I use for storing all the PDFs I create. So any freebies, training materials and workbooks are all stashed there. Once they’ve been uploaded, I’m able to generate a download link, which I would then send to my subscribers, or my students, or whoever, so that they can access that particular resource. Plus, it’s FREE. Bonus.

XERO

We all need a robust bookkeeping and accounting system and Xero is it. I love how I can keep track of my finances, integrate with Stripe, Paypal and my Bank and create reports on the fly.

Bonus: partner it with Receipt Bank to upload all paper and email receipts automatically into Xero. 


DEADLINE FUNNEL

When you’re running evergreen funnels with special offers, you need the funnel to automatically end the offer when you said it would run out. Otherwise, you’re marketing lacks authenticity – which will damage your brand. Deadline Funnel solves that problem by integrating with your pages and emails to ensure when you say the time is up, the time is up.
