Canva 

If you want to update your business’s branding, but don’t have the budget for a full-time designer hire, test your skills with Canva. Canva is an easy-to-use online graphic design tool that helps businesses create stunning visuals without prior design knowledge or experience. This beginner-friendly platform has a library of professional templates that make it simple to design everything from logos to flyers, posters and more. Plus, with its drag-and-drop features, you can create beautiful designs in minutes and from your phone or tablet. 

Airtable 

Acting as essentially a hybrid between a spreadsheet and a database, Airtable is a cloud-based collaboration platform that allows you to easily organize, store, and access all your data in one place. It has a straightforward, user-friendly interface that makes it easy to manage and track information. 

Airtable is an invaluable resource for any business — new or established — making it easier to stay organized and on top of everything. Plus, you can customize it to fit your business’s unique needs.

Dropbox 

Every successful business needs to stay organized. And while file management isn’t exactly a sexy part of managing a company, it comes with the territory. Dropbox makes organization a dream with cloud storage that allows entrepreneurs to store, share and access their files while collaborating with colleagues from anywhere and on any device. With remote working being more prevalent, this is a fantastic tool to keep everyone on the same page.

Sending large, complex documents is no longer a complicated process. You can easily upload and share them, track who views them, and even get notifications when they are opened. You can also password-protect files, set expiration dates, and hide download links. This way, you can ensure that your documents remain secure and confidential while still seeing how many people have viewed your documents and how long they spent looking at them.

Quickbooks 

Keeping your books clean, accurate and up-to-date is important, so you understand your overall bottom line and financial outlook. Luckily, there’s a way to manage money without breaking out into hives. Quickbooks is a cloud-based accounting solution for entrepreneurs that makes it easy to keep track of income and expenses, create invoices, manage payroll and generate financial reports. 

It is a stress-free financial management solution that automates accounting tasks, including invoicing, bank reconciliation, payroll and financial reporting. 

Quickbooks also offers budgeting, forecasting, and cash flow management tools to help entrepreneurs plan and manage their finances more effectively. Have a bookkeeper or accountant? You can designate them via email within Quickbooks, so they manage invoices, contractors, tax forms, and more. 

Zapier 

Zapier is an automation platform for entrepreneurs to streamline their workflow. It lets you connect different apps and services to quickly and easily complete tasks. With Zapier, you can set up automated triggers and actions that will help streamline your business processes. 

With Zapier, you can save time and focus on more critical tasks for your business. For example, if you receive a new customer order in your online store, you can set up a zap to automatically send an invoice to your customer. This way, you don’t have to send invoices every time you get an order manually.

Google Analytics 

Every entrepreneur should be using Google Analytics to understand their business better. Google Analytics is a powerful tool that helps companies to gain insights into their online presence. It provides valuable data about website visitors, including where they came from, what pages they visited, and how long they stayed on your site. This information can help new businesses determine how to best optimize their website and reach their target audience. 

With Google Analytics, businesses can also measure their success with campaigns, track conversions and gain insights into how users interact with their websites. With this valuable data, companies can make informed decisions to grow and succeed.
