What Tools Do I Need To Bring My Work Online Fast?
I have been asked this so many times...
And I understand...
The online world brings its own complexity. We're looking for freedom and we can end up buried in a mountain of overwhelm.
So the tools will depend on your selling process...
Having said that, and because I don't know what your sales process is exactly, I will answer this for people like us - service professionals, coaches, trainers, consultants and other experts.
So I'm assuming that what can move the needle the fastest online is to bring clients.

Not all tools work together happily. (Ask me how I know...).
So these tools all play together happily...

I do have a website built in WordPress but if I didn't I would start with LeadPages.
Online Tool # 2
Social media is a place where you can start building an audience for your business.
In the resources, you get the platforms I use and love as well as how to choose the best platform for your business.
MOMENTUM - Instead of starting accounts in every possible platform, choose one and build there.

Another essential is the ability to send emails and to build what people call an "email list".

So I've tried several options and I've fallen in love with...

One of the best ways to build an audience of people who want what you offer and get clients is to host an online class (sometimes known as a webinar).
You can try it for free here...
You can also do paid classes.
Online Tool #8
However you invite people to a conversation with you, a great way to avoid the back and forth of trying to find a time to talk is to have an online scheduler or calendar.
Till next time, remember... your awesomeness is portable. You can take it with you anywhere and everywhere.
