Here’s a list of the software that I use to support my business.
I want things to make my life easier, not give me a tech headache – so they’re all pretty intuitive and easy to use.
💻 Asana – day to day project management + bigger goals.
This is my business brain. It has every random idea I have, as well as tasks, templates, deadlines and general biz processes.
If I was starting again? I’d use Notion but I am in too deep with Asana now.
💻 Jotform – I securely send my podcast release and consent forms, gather guest bios and photos in the one place, as well as contracts that need an e-signature.
💻Podia – The platform that changed the game for me. I sell courses, classes and all my circles through this site.
I also run my affiliate program through here.
💻Convertkit – Email marketing software that has segmentation and automated sequences I can set up.
I spent hours researching and decided this was the best one for me when I switched from Mailchimp (which is super expensive now!)
I’m sad CV doesn’t have really beautiful templates (honestly they’re a pain in the ass) but the analytics are great.
It also talks / integrates with Podia though there are some kinks I’m ironing out.
If you’re after pretty plus decent functionality – Flodesk was my second choice.
💻Zoom – for hosting calls and classes. For running podcast interviews.
💻Buzz sprout – Podcast hosting and distribution.
💻Calendly – for scheduling podcast interviews, 1:1 mentoring sessions so I don’t have to go back and forth on email. I have automated reminders to avoid extra admin and this eliminates no shows.
💻Voxer – communicating with business mentoring clients throughout the week. I have the paid version so I can save messages but I started with free.
💻Gsuite – my email addresses and business admin and documents are hosted here.
💻Xero – accounting and Bas submission. Amazing reporting.
💻Descript – podcast and video editing, transcription and captioning.
💻Canva Pro – for social media templates and tiles.
All up, I pay around $3,500 AUD annually on tech.
