The Magic Business Toolkit
Here are a sample of the Tools that I use every day in my business of being a freelance independent Entertainment Professional.
They help me organise my schedule, connect with my clients, maintain my website, drive traffic to my website and much more. Some are free and some have a small cost.
A lot of the traffic that comes to my sites is via YouTube.
I have built my YouTube subscriber base up to over 4,000 ( June 2018) and nearly half a million views, which is not too bad considering this is a very small niche.
The Tool I use the most is TubeBuddy, it saves me time and gives me great insights and SEO advantages. Plus it’s free to install! DETAILS
WebHosting – SiteGround
I’ve tried most of the major Hosting companies over the years – GoDaddy, Blue Host, Host Gator. SiteGround are Faster, offer better Support, are more Secure and cost about the same as the others!
WP Themes & SignUp Forms – Thrive Themes
Awesome tools and Content Builder for anyone selling or promoting their services online. The yearly “get everything” membership option is a really good choice. You also get access to their Thrive University trainings. You probably used one of their forms when you signed up.
WordPress Themes – Thesis
While I am a fan of Thrive Themes mentioned above, I tend to use them for their other tools. For websites I like Thesis. Plenty of built in SEO features.
I love ActiveCampaign. I’ve been using it for over 2 years now, automating different aspects of my business!
If you use MailChimp, Aweber etc this really is the next step forward and allows you to do incredible things.
There is a free trial, great support, great community. I can’t recommend it enough.
Another must have. I keep my current Office & Project Files here. A great backup and way to share larger files with others. Dropbox details
I don’t know what I’d do without this. But sharing notes, reminders and clipped webpages between Desktop, Phone and Ipad, it is a lifesaver. I also know I don’t use it to it’s fullest potential, but I love finding people who have never heard of it and watching their faces light up when they see just some of the things it can do.
