5 Online Tools That Every  Business Owner Needs.

Are you looking for online tools to help you take your business to the next level ? Here are 5 online tools that will keep your business thrive by helping you connect with new and existing customers.

 

 

1) Wave apps: Wave apps is an all in one accounting solution that any business can use. The software is free cloud-based accounting software that helps you track your profit,  expenses, create and send unlimited invoices, scan receipts, and more. Its features include unlimited income and expense tracking, recurring billing, and a mobile app, which are also free.  The only thing you have to pay for is the Payroll feature, which costs $20 per month. It’s hard to believe that they offer so many cool things for free.

 

2). ClickUp: ClickUp is a project management tool that allows teams to assign specific tasks and provides status updates of tasks. It also has docs, reminders, goals, calendars, scheduling, and even an inbox. As a fully customizable software, ClickUp works for every type of team and business size, so all teams can use the same app to plan, organize, and collaborate.

 

3) MobileMonkey: Have you heard of Facebook? I am sure you have. One of the hidden secrets of Facebook is the ability to set up a chat that will automatically respond to people that visit your page. If you are looking for an easy to use Facebook messenger, then MobileMonkey is for you. The chatbot training process is simple. You can easily build your chatbot to respond to general inquires, book appointments, provide your client with documents, and much more. One of the excellent features I like about MobileMonkey is that you can also set it up to respond to clients on your website.

 

 

 

4) Shopify: Next on our list is Shopify. Shopify is an E-commerce platform that allows anyone to sell online, at a retail location easily, and everywhere in between. If you are looking for an easy to use online solution for your business, this is the solution for you.  Shopify offers a professional online storefront, a payment solution to accept credit cards, and the Shopify POS application for your retail sales. With Shopify’s eCommerce software, you use one platform and a single sign-on to help run your business.  Shopify also recently signed a deal with Walmart. That means if you have an e-commerce store, you can also list your products on Walmart’s website. Shopify also has thousands of apps to help you take your business to the next level. From a Store Pickup and delivery app to a restaurant menu app.  They have it in the app store. 

 

5) Mailerlite: I am always surprised when I notice a business that is not using email marketing as part of their marketing plan. One of the main benefits of email marketing is that you own the list. On social media, your followers are owned by the platform you are on.  There are a lot of great options on the internet to help you with your email marketing.  My personal favorite is Mailerlite. If you are just getting started, they offer a free plan if you have 0 to 1,000 subscribers.  They also provide a variety of business features like a landing page builder,  popups for your website, and the ability to set up automation for different lists.
