I use this ALL the time. The minute I press the Print Screen button on my keyboard the world of screen capturing is at my fingertips. Then what makes it funn is I can annotate and add arrows, circles, text and more on the image. Then I can copy and paste it into an email or save for a tutorial, etc. The uses are endless

Similar to Canva. Super easy. Lots of stockphotos, background removing tool and robust editor. The graphic on this page was made with Crello.

Calendar Booking Systems
Over the years I’ve tried so many systems. Most are REALLY good. I’ve landed for myself at the moment on this first one:
Book Like A Boss
I must confess I waited a long time to set up my account for no good reason other than avoiding what I thought would be a complicated system to learn. Low and behold, it was SUPER easy and the more I set up, the more features I wound up using. I LOVE…
- That I can set up both appointment booking calendar and “product” that people can buy
- The SMS reminders it sends out
- The integration with email marketing tools
Check out BookLikeABoss
I love that they have a free verision. Try it out at calendly.com

Social Media Management Tools
You’ve heard of the common names Hootsuite and Buffer, but I have some additional tools I use way more than these
Got a team? Need to manage posting and commenting on social media. Need reports? Yes, you can post directly to Instagram from this one. This is a great tool when you have a team. No text/notification involved. Yay.
This one offers some AI that will pick stock photos and suggest emojis. That’s cool! But not direct Instagram posting. There’s a work around.
Another cool kid on the block for social media management. You can even publish to YouTube.
Email Marketing CRM System
I recently did the trial and I’m impressed with the quality of this system. It is perfect for a serious entrepreneur or business looking to leverage marketing technology. Yes, there is a membership platform built right in. They even are launching shortly their own calendaring tool. Smartest marketing system I’ve seen in a while
