Don’t you just love finding out about great business tools and resources that are awesome AND FREE?
In this post, I’m sharing 10 free tools that are broken up into 4 different categories including Organization, Video, Stock Photos & Graphics and Email Marketing. These are all tools that I’m either currently using or highly recommend based on feedback from other coaches and colleagues, so I hope you find them helpful too.
One of the best all-in-one organizational tools for your coaching business is Practice Better. This software allows you to save time and streamline your coaching business by having everything in one place. You can use it for your one-on-one clients, and also use it for your online programs. The free version allows you to get started with three 1-on-1 clients, which is an awesome way to try it out.
I love using Trello to keep tasks and projects organized. You can create boards for all different topics. For example, I have a board called “Tools and Resources” where I keep a running list of things I know I want to check out, use and/or recommend to people. You know how it is – you think you’ll remember that great website or resource later, but if you’re like me, you forget!
I also have a boards that I share with my team, so I can assign tasks and keep track of the progress. I have over a dozen boards so far and they each serve a different purpose and help me stay more organized.
Trello can be used for so many things, including managing projects, keeping in touch with your VA, assigning tasks, client management, and so much more.
For taking and organizing notes, creating outlines and other projects, Evernote is a winner in my book. The free version will sync across 2 devices, but if you need more, you can upgrade to the paid version.
There are several free options for communicating with your clients, your tribe, and your prospects. Here are just a few to consider:
Zoom is free for calls up to 45 minutes (paid plan starts at $14.99 per month). With the paid version, you can also host webinars (starting at $40 per month, in addition to the $14.99 plan).
Facebook Live, Instagram Live and IGTV – This is a not only a fantastic option for communicating with your followers, but it’s an easy way to do mini trainings and Q and A’s.
TIP: You can repurpose your live videos by downloading them, and uploading them to places like IGTV, your Facebook page, Facebook group, YouTube, podcast, etc.
#3. Graphics and Stock Photos
Stock photos are great to use for blog posts, social media posts, eGuides, and more, but they can get pretty pricey. If you’re looking to get great images for FREE (that are also copy-right free), check out these 4 sites:
For DIY graphics, Canva is my top pick. The free version gives you plenty of options to get started, plus it’s another resource for finding stock photos.
#4. Email Marketing
MailerLite is the best free option I have found for email marketing. The free version is good for up to 1,000 subscribers, and it includes automation, PLUS landing page templates.
There are other email marketing services that offer free versions, but I have found that MailerLite offers the best features and integrations for a non-paid option (and it’s very user-friendly).
So, there you go – 10 free business tools for your wellness business. TIP: Keep a list of some of your faves in Trello, so you can refer back to them at any time. You can also create a card on one of your Trello boards for some of your favorite blog posts 🙂
