    I love starting and running online businesses.

    And since I have been doing it for close to a decade, I have a handful of tools I use over and over again. They have become part of my daily habit, and I recommend them to anyone and everyone.

    Here are my favorite tools for your online business:

    1. Ontraport: This is the engine to my entire online operation. It handles my CRM, my landing pages, top-of-the-line tracking analytics, member’s area, email marketing, super powerful automations, payment gateways, and a long list of etceteras.
      This is the only tool you’ll need to start your online venture. It is beginner friendly, has great support, grows with your business, and won’t break the bank.
    2. Vidyard: This is my not-so-secret weapon for landing consulting and coaching clients on LinkedIn, Messenger, and via email. With a simple Chrome extension, I can fire up my webcam and begin recording a personalized video in seconds. At just $15 per month, it’s a steal.
    3. Calendly: Scheduling made easy. I allow my clients to self-schedule consulting calls, meetings, podcast recordings, or anything else. It checks my availability in multiple calendars and each meeting type has its own settings. It integrates with Stripe and PayPal so clients can book and pay all within Calendly. If you’re starting out a coaching or consulting business, this is a must have!

    If you end up using these tools, let me know what you think!
