SMART TOOLS

Get those pesky tasks done effeciently and effectively

 

Sometimes, even as an experienced business owner, I find myself on the Struggle Bus with certain tasks and projects.

I don't know why, but I can spend days on something that should only take minutes.

So that feeling of discovering a tool; a website or an app, that allows me to fully complete a task efficiently and effectively, well that feel feeling is amazing!

I have gathered up some of my favorite smart tools here for you and hope that they can help to reduce stress and move the needle in your business, allowing you more time to bring in new clients and take care of them.

ACUITY SCHEDULING

EVERY LEGAL CONTRACT YOU COULD EVER NEED FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND CUSTOMIZED TO THE LAW IN YOUR STATE

What time works for you?

Tuesday. 

I'm busy Tuesday. How about Wednesday?

I can do between 10am - 11am and 3:15pm and 4:00pm.

Which time zone?

NEVER do the appointment scheduling dance again! Setup an availability calendar where your clients, suppliers, and vendors can make appointments based around both of your availabilities. You can even schedule reminder emails to reduce missed meetings. Plus you can embed the calendar right there on your website allowing you to wake up to new meetings!

POSTABLE

A SMART WAY TO LOVE ON YOUR CLIENTS!

Create and curate a secure address book for your clients to impress them with mailed out postcards and personalized messages.

By collecting their anniversary date you can also plan ahead to the big milestone celebrations that deserve a memorable vacation!

It's free to setup and will really build that Know, Like and Trust factor quickly.
