Day 11 of Halloween GoodiesAs a “company of one” there are so many things to manage, so many hats to wear. Whether it’s raining money or not, I’ve always been budget-savvy when it comes to business expenses. Here are five online resources, I use and the best news, they are free! Woo-hoo!

FYI these are not affiliate links – I truly believe in these resources.

For bookkeeping: Wave was built for businesses with 9 employees or less and can help manage your financials aspects, (integrate with your etsy and paypal for instance to invoice and watch receipts) for free.

For photography: My first stop for free photos I know can be used on my site without an issue is Pixabay. I also receive the awesome emails from DeathtoStock and Unsplash of their beautiful work.

Task reminding: I’m great at creating my to-do list and now I can remember and manage on-going ones better with Remember The Milk.

Appointment scheduling: If you would like potential or current clients to schedule time with you, you may want to check out Calendly.com. I’m just looking into this myself so I may post about my experience in a few months. Looks promising.

Website grading: Need a second opinion on your website? How about a professional one? The Website Grader from HubSpot is easy, fast and results are brief and understandable so you can make changes today. Awesome tool. I just did some of my client sites and my own (all did well but I want As) – improvements on the way! WooRank.com is also amazing and provides additional insights about traffic getting.

P.S. If you get results you need some help with – contact me at jeny@whitebearmarketing.com. $75 for an hour of tweaks is easy peasy and that’s one more thing not to worry about during this important time of the year!

Planning on “reverse trick-or-treating” tomorrow? Here’s a sweet little gift bat bag (free printable!) you can wrap up goodies in and include a business card.
