Tech does not need to burn a hole in your budget

There are so many things to think about when you are starting out 

The cost of your the Tech that you use does not have to be a worry 

You can create a complete FREE  setup – yup I said FREE


I would suggest spending a small amount on 2 things that will help you in the long term. Costing you no more than £100 for the year

1. Buy your domain – once you have picked your business name and checked that you can get all the socials media handles are available.

 Purchase that Domain – Trust me

This can be done places like Bluehost, Fasthost etc. This can cost from £1 – £20 depending on many factors. But once you have purchased that space there are things you can do including point 2. Plus even if you are not setting up a website to start with having that for when you are ready is a massive advantage.

It is also going to potentially cost you a lot less than having to redo all your branding if you need to do a name change

2. Get yourself a business name email address and storage.  Firstly, this will be good as when sending and receiving emails as you will look professional and you won’t need to worry about migration later.  Secondly, you will be able so send out downloads as a shareable link. Thirdly, it will be more authentic when sorting out your email marketing 

Once you have done that you can use the following.

These all have free for life plans with basic features to get you going  

Payments – PaypalStripe (these do share a free per transaction)

Video – Zoom 

Graphics – Canva 

Calendar Scheduler – Calendly 

Task Management – Trello/ClickUp

Email Marketing – Mailerlite 

Connection Service – Zapier/Integromat

Post Scheduling – Planoly/Later

CRM – Dubsado

Learning Management Systems  – Thinkific

If you want to you an all in one system from the start that is also absolutely fine 

The only thing left is for you to choose where to start
