For the last several hundred Saturdays I’ve run a blog post post called Weekend Favs. The post consists of three finds I’ve made during the week that I like to share. I always get lots of positive feedback on this feature and consequently get lots of questions from people looking for resources and tools for running and growing their businesses.
So, I decided to collect what I think is the best of the best of the key resources every business needs and categorize them by key areas of business. I’ve used all of these tools at some point and feel good about recommending each. The list does contain a few affiliate links with companies I’ve had a long standing relationship with, but that certainly was not a factor in the list’s make-up. In fact, many of the resources on the list don’t even have affiliate programs.
The primary reason I’m sharing this list is to act as a resource for those that have asked. On the list you’ll find entries for customer targeting, CRM, email marketing, graphics and design, content creation, SEO, advertising, PR, video tools, social media, WordPress, web hosting, web tools, customer service, tracking, virtual assistance, online communications tools, finance and project management.
