Domain & Hosting
All of my clients websites are hosted on Bluehost – unless they have something else set up. It by far is my most favorite provider I have seen. Besides providing an affordable plan for hosting for as little at $2.95/month, you also get a free domain (if you don’t already have one), and even at the basic plan you get 5 free email addresses!
All of our sites built (Even this site) is built using Divi by Elegant Themes. This drag and drop designer theme makes designing a site very interactive, and gives us the ability to see exactly what we are designing, and we able to tweek little things along the way.
I was spending more time trying to schedule consults and brainstorming with clients, rather then doing them. Acuity has GREATLY helped me (in just a week) make times as to when I’m available, and clients can go in on their own time and choose which works best for them.
CRM & Management
I was going between MULTIPLE websites just to maintain my clients, their invoices, emails, where they are at in their desing/site, then I was introduced to Dubsado. This LIFESAVER of a website has it all in one place, and allows you to do a lot of automation with prewritten emails, and autofilling contracts.
