Tools of the Trade

Get the software and equipment you need now, what to add to your wishlist for later, and how to know the difference.

No matter what stage you’re at in your biz journey, the right tools can:

notebook, cup of coffee, and laptop on a desk
  • Save you dozens of hours per week and a whole lotta stress (more time to do what you love = a HUGE win!)
  • Automate key marketing activities like email marketing, list building, and showing up on social media.
  • Save you thousands of dollars on pricey freelancers and doing things the hard way.

 

The trick is knowing the right ones to use at the right stage — because there’s nothing worse than software sitting unused on your digital desktop, am I right?

My commitment to you is that I will always go first.

I experiment with what works and what doesn’t and then report back with honest recommendations on what you need (and when you need it) so you can create a profitable business you absolutely love.

Amy’s fave at any stage STARTING A BIZ

Two Weeks Notice

Go from feeling stuck and hopeless to confidently handing in your Two Weeks Notice and running a freedom-fueling online business on your terms.

Amy’s fave at any stage List Building

Free Masterclass

In my FREE masterclass, Inbox Money: How To Monetize An Email List In 4 Easy Steps, I’ll show you how I add 1,000+ new subscribers to my email list every single week.

Amy’s fave at any stage LANDING PAGE SOFTWARE

Leadpages

This single tool has saved my entire team literally hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars per year. Leadpages is the perfect resource to help you scale your business, because it allows you to confidently roll out lead-generating campaigns in record time.

Amy’s fave at any stage EMAIL MARKETING

ConvertKit

ConvertKit is a powerful email service provider that delivers automation capabilities without the steep price. Try their free plan that allows you to make unlimited landing pages and forms and choose from multiple templates, add personalization and design, include an incentive email, create a thank you page, manage subscribers and send broadcast emails.

Amy’s fave at any stage COURSE PLATFORM

Searchie

Searchie is the most flexible, easy-to-use online platform to create, organize, and sell digital courses and memberships. You can create beautiful, tailored content experiences that serve your students at a much higher level. Searchie has saved us SO much time and energy with automatic transcriptions and captions, and seamless integrations with Facebook, Zoom, and many more. Plus, our students LOVE that they can search inside all of our audio and video content by keyword—they're able to find exactly what they’re looking for in seconds!

Amy’s fave at any stage COURSE PLATFORM

Kajabi

Kajabi contains all the features you need to sell, market and deliver your content. Because they make it incredibly easy to turn your knowledge and content into products you can sell, I am a huge fan of this powerful tool. Inside my business, we specifically use Kajabi for our course platforms to highlight and showcase all of our paid content.

Amy’s fave at any stage SHOPPING CART

Spiffy

I love this tool! Spiffy has all the features you need to grow your sales and manage revenue. Not to mention, I saved thousands of dollars in development fees. But still, my favorite thing about Spiffy is that it seamlessly integrates with all my other tools and their incredible team that supports with everything you need. Spiffy allows me to launch my courses faster, with the confidence that all the pieces of my funnel will play nicely together.

Amy’s fave at any stage Podcast Course

Amy’s fave at any stage BUSINESS ORGANIZATION

Full Focus Planner

The Full Focus Planner helps you take control of your day and start living the life you desire. Built on the science-backed Full Focus System, each page is intentionally designed to increase your focus, eliminate overwhelm, and accelerate your goal achievement. And it’s not limited to professional growth. Features include ten life domains, daily rituals, and self-care exercises that serve as needed reminders for any achiever who struggles to unplug from work. As you produce your digital course, the Full Focus Planner will help you achieve more by doing less. This is how you win at work and succeed at life.

WEBSITE HOSTING

SiteGround

If you’re starting from the very beginning, I recommend creating a website with wordpress.org and hosting it with SiteGround. It’s an effective and affordable way to make sure your site is always up and running.

POP-UP OPT-INS

PopUp Ally

In my opinion, list-building should be a primary focus on your website. This is even more important when you're just beginning to build an audience. PopUp Ally will help you maximize your site's list-building potential -- in a non-spammy way. This tool is a popup plugin that actually improves the user experience on your site. Its smart technology anticipates people’s needs as they browse around your site, making PopUp Ally far more effective than a lot of the other “in-your-face” popup options.

NOTE APP

Evernote

You may already be familiar with this wildly popular tool. Evernote is a crowd favorite among entrepreneurs and marketers. It’s great for taking notes and brainstorming -- especially on-the-go. A big bonus for me is that it's almost impossible to outgrow Evernote. You can start with the free version as a beginner, and level up later.

FILE ORGANIZATION

Google Drive

Accessible from anywhere with internet, Google Drive is a great collaborative tool for teams to use when you’re working with content, files, or images in tandem. Unlike DropBox, multiple parties can be in a file at a time manipulating data or text without having to download and re-upload the file.

FILE ORGANIZATION

DropBox

In my opinion, the key to minimizing stress in business is staying organized. Dropbox is where I store and systematize my files so that everything has a “home.” You can start using this tool for free and upgrade as your library of digital assets grows.

PASSWORD SECURITY

Last Pass

If you’re still committing passwords to memory (or worse -- using the same password for most of your major accounts), it’s time to geta password manager. My personal favorite is LastPass. I love that it allows me to securely share sensitive information (such a social media logins, etc.)

VIDEO COMMUNICATION

VideoAsk

VideoAsk is a platform that scales, tracks, and personalizes video communication. You can upload your videos, create them using their library, or make one on the spot. It can be used for virtually anything: lead generation, lead qualification, reviews/feedback, testimonials, the possibilities are endless!

GRAPHIC DESIGN

99Designs

This crowd-sourcing tool is a great way to get professional, affordable design support.

SOCIAL MEDIA SCHEDULING

MeetEdgar

Here's your Friday reminder that entrepreneurship isn't just about success – it's about embracing the journey, bumps, mistakes, and all. 💯🙌

Here's the thing I've learned over the past 15 years, it's OKAY to stumble. Every misstep is a chance to learn, grow, and come out on the other side even stronger. 🙏

Now in my business, I intentionally welcome fear as a sign that my team and I are pushing boundaries, taking risks, and paving our own unique path to success.

So embrace the journey, my fellow entrepreneurs, and remember, it’s always better to make a million wrong decisions and learn from them than to sit on the sidelines and never take action! 💫
Comment “656” to learn how I’m working towards making decisions for my business with complete confidence (even if they’re “wrong”)! 💯🙏🎧

Recently, one of my consultants gave me a massive wake-up call by telling me that I’m making all my decisions from a place of fear. 😔

At first, this was REALLY hard for me to take in, and to be honest, I felt a lot of shame. But then I realized he gave me this feedback so I could work through it and be the BEST version of myself possible! Which is, of course, exactly what I want for you! 🥹

So, in today’s episode, I share some strategies that have helped me understand the root of my fear, adjust my mindset, and make those brave unapologetic decisions!

Comment “656” below and I’ll send the episode straight to your DMs 💌🎙️
A quote I've always lived by, especially in my entrepreneurial journey has been, "PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION". 🙏💯

Don't be afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Taking action, even if it leads to some wrong decisions, is FAR more valuable than standing still. 🙌

Your biggest regret will always be the chances you didn't take. 💛
