I have a small business too, so I understand.  Sometimes cashflow might restrict the assistance you can get, and you try to do what you can yourself.  So I’ve created the range of packages – courses where you can learn basic search engine optimization for a small business; or you can hand it all over to me; or somewhere in between.

And because I believe in giving you will also find a raft of free articles, videos and suggested resources.  And all I ask is that you help others learn about my resources and Autom8 Now.

Finding the right tool when you start up your small business can be difficult so I have listed some of the tools and links that can help you along the way.

I’ve got you covered!

Recommended Software and Tools

Click to go to these supplier pages.  Please note that some of the links on this page are affiliate links and if you go through them to make a purchase I will earn a small commission (which allows me to produce free tip videos that I produce on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn). But I want you to know that I link with these companies and their products because of their quality and not because of the commission I receive from your purchases. The decision is yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you.

Canva Tool - Graphic Design Tool

Canva – Graphic Design Tool

As a new business you will encounter a number of times that you need to do some graphic design, whether it is for business cards, logos, marketing flyers, social media posts or ads. If you don’t have the budget for a graphic design artist then consider using the free tool Canva and their wide variety of professional templates. It is extremely easy to use and yet immensely powerful. You can achieve a lot with the free version, but I recommend the pro version because:

Upload your own images, fonts, branding
Folder organisation

Siteground Hosting

Get a Website Up and Running

Siteground is a hosting company that can help you do it all – buy your domain name, set up a wordpress website, set up a blog site, set up an woocommerce online shop. I host some of my sites on SiteGround and have found them to be cost-effective, fast, secure and have fabulous support.

Camtasia - Video recording and editing tool

Camtasia – Video Recording and Editing Software

If you want to be able to create videos like mine in YouTube or want to extend the video editing capabilities beyond Canva’s capabilities then consider Camtasia from Techsmith.  It is particularly good for training videos based on recording your computer screen.  It is also a once time payment not a subscription service, so can be more economical for many (but you can buy maintenance packages to get any upgrades if you wish as well).

Great links useful for small businesses

Here are some handy pages that I suggest you look at as well.
