I'm a fan of working smarter, not harder.  You will be amazed at the tools available to help you build your brand for little or no cost (Yep, most are FREE!).  Take a look at some tools I use in my business and to help clients improve their brands.


17 Hats

17 Hats is the CRM system I use to manage client data and information. It allows me to send professional invoices, quotes, questionnaires, contracts, emails, and more. I can also keep up with bookkeeping, payments, time logs, phone calls, notes, and workflows. It costs $37 per month or $199 per year ($17 per month) and is worth every single penny. Try the free trial first then use this link and PROMO CODE htskdvgxvv to receive a discount... because I know you're going to get it!



Asana is a lifesaver for automating my tasks and keeping up with my personal projects internally. All of my product launches, courses, and events are planned inside of Asana. My team can log in on the desktop or mobile app using their own accounts to see tasks, deadlines, files, and notes so everybody knows what's going on. The free version is good by itself, but for $9.99 per user per month you can get even more tools.



Buffer is the best tool for small businesses to automate social media. The interface is easy to use, the analytics are straightforward, and the mobile and browser plugin makes it accessible no matter where you are or what you are doing. Even better than the tool itself is the Buffer Social blog and The Science of Social Media podcast that it publishes to teach you all about social media on a small scale and large scale. This comes in a free version and paid version starting at $10 per month. Either way, it's a win for you!
