As an entrepreneur or administrator you’re always looking for ways to improve your small business!
There are always new services or sites to try, new methods to implement, new ways to expand.
Often small business leaders end up doing a little bit of everything (marketing, sales, customer support, accounts receivable, etc.) out of necessity.
You definitely need some tools to help keep you organized if you want your business to grow and succeed!
Here are 6 tools you can use to improve your small business.
You probably have already heard of Stripe. It is an excellent service that allows you to track and process card payments.
Stripe’s code allows your developers to easily integrate with your system as well, and they have their own invoicing structure.
The price for Stripe is 2.9% + $.30 for each successful card charge, so while it can be painful to lose a bit of your profit on each sale it doesn’t break the bank.
Typeform allows you to create interactive surveys and track data from your customers’ responses.
It allows you to create different question workflows based on your customers’ responses and offers various integrations.
With ClickFunnels you can set up sales funnels to direct more people to your product or service and boost sales.
Although admittedly the user-friendliness may be slightly lacking, Customer.io is a useful tool for sending out automated messages.
You can create different campaigns and segment your customers so they receive the relevant information.
Their plans start at $150/month.
Pexels is a totally free site that allows you to search through a wide range of royalty-free stock photos.
No attribution is required for these photos, so you are free to use them for any purpose – whether it’s for marketing on your site or for putting images in your blog posts.
Every small business needs an invoicing software. Wave allows you to create attractive invoices for free. (They also have other features that we haven’t used.)
You can send these invoices to customers for check payments, or they can pay the invoice via card or bank transfer by clicking on the invoice.
It also allows for setting up recurring invoice and sending reminders for when payment is due.
Like Stripe, they charge 2.9% + $.30 per transaction for card payments, and 1% for bank payments.
If you’re looking for new tools to improve your small business, give some of these a try and see if they’re a good fit for you!
