[1:03] - Intro

A little update on what I've been up to recently including my first networking hike and what I'm discussing in this podcast episode

[4:08] - Tool 1: Calendly

This tool was an absolute game changer for me for booking in calls and converting leads, so find out more!

[8:15] - Tool 2: Flodesk

This is my email marketing platform, I moved over from Mailchimp as I just couldn't get on with it plus it cost me a fortune. It's so much easier to use and the price is so cost effective!

[13:09] - Tool 3: Dubsado

This is a CRM platform that I use for all my clients for project management including contracts and invoicing. It's a brilliant platform that can be automated as much as you want and can be linked to Stripe and Quickbooks for payment.

[15:52] - Tool 4: Aisle Planner

Another CRM platform but specifically designed for the wedding planning industry that I'm in.

[18:26] - Tool 5: Canva

A design platform to help create all your graphics and thumbnails for anything you need, we use it all the time and it's a fantastic platform.

[20:14] - Tool 6: Trello

This is my favourite tool ever!! If you're a list lover (like me) then this is for you! You can create boards and To Do lists for everything and anything to do with your business and honestly it's a game changer.

[22:58] - Tool 7: Tube Buddy

This is specifically to use alongside YouTube and helps with your SEO for videos. It's brilliant for helping to make my videos get the views and noticed!

[25:19] - Tool 8: Stripe

A money taking app/platform which is really handy and really quick.

[27:08] - Tool 9: Zapier

A really cool and helpful tool that can link platforms that can't usually link together.

[30:22] - Tool 10: Epidemic Sound

Is a fully licensed music platform for use of music on videos, I used this all the time for background music on my YouTube videos.

[31:26] - Bonus Tool: iMovie

Another tool I use all the time and is completely free for editing video is iMovie and I use this for all my YouTube videos.

[31:55] - Conclusion
