Believe it or not, having solid software in place is one of the driving forces behind the success of your business. 

As you continue to plan for all of your 2020 aspirations remember that focusing-in on your business data is key if you want to seamlessly move in the right direction. 

That’s just one reason why I’m excited to share 6 amazing tools that can eliminate headaches and hiccups in your business. 

1. Nutshell 

There are dozens of CRM systems out there! However, Nutshell delivers in a unique way. It allows my team and I to not only manage all of our leads but our clients as well. The system is adaptable to your needs. Changing the workflows to specifically cater to my business is a game-changer for me. It allows me to keep up with clients in different phases of the onboarding process.  

Essentially at any moment, I’m able to tell how many clients I have in the trademarks clearance phase or in the waiting phase. It takes all the guess-work out of my day! 

Additionally, there are plenty of integrations that come with Nutshell that enable great communication with clients and team members.  

2. Zapier 

Who doesn’t like automation? Zapier is a powerful automation tool that connects many of your favorite apps and tools that are used on a daily basis. If you don’t want to feel weighed down by your business, Zapier is a perfect choice. 

It’s important to note that in order to run an efficient business and in order to spend less time in your business, especially if you’re a solopreneur you need to automate as many tasks as you can. 

Time is money!

If you’re losing leads because you’re stuck trying to figure everything out manually – you’re losing money. 

3. Office 365 

You may think of your basic tools like Microsoft Word or Excel when you think of Office 365. However, it has so much more to offer! I love it because of OneDrive. OneDrive is similar to Dropbox and Google Drive. Instead of having different providers, Office 365 was the better choice. It allows me to share folders virtually and connects with tools like Zapier. I personally use it on my computer, my iPad, or on my phone and have access to all of my information.  

4. ActiveCampaign 

ActiveCampaign does more than your average email marketing system. In addition to collecting emails, it allows you to send targeted emails to visitors who have viewed specific pages on your site. Amazing! Right? 

ActiveCampaign is the perfect example of keeping up with your brand’s data. For instance, I’m able to see when my students enrolled in the Launch Legally Blueprint land on a page or click on a link. If you’re looking to truly engage with current customers, potential customers, or students enrolled in a course, you should definitely give ActiveCampaign a try.  

5. Google Analytics 

Google Analytics is perfect for setting up conversions and goals. It tells me not only how many people are coming to my website but also how I’m converting those people. 

For example, if my goal is to get people into a freebie, I can see how many people who are coming to my website are actually signing up to my freebie, how they actually getting there, and how many people from those freebies are being upsold to the next product.  

6. Thinkific 

I use Thinkific to host my courses, programs, and products. While it is great for those 3 things, it is equally great for all of my training videos for my team. 

As you already know, having systems as a solopreneur is important. However, it’s also equally important to have systems in place when you’re growing your team. Thinkific works great in this phase of business as well. If you’re working alone right now, it’s time that you start recording and documenting your processes, so when you do start growing a team, you have something to show them. 

The best thing? You don’t have to get all fancy with it. Simply take out your phone and hit record! 

This month, I encourage you to take a look at your systems. Think about your priorities, how you want everything to be done, and see if the tools that you’re currently using accomplish that. 

If not, now is the time to switch. 

Be mindful that when you do switch, that things take time to grow into. Don’t get impatient and switch back to your old tools or a totally different tool. Remember that you would rather grow into it than grow out of it.
