Many will take this time and build side hustles or online businesses as the changing climate of our world becomes more solid. As online business owners, it’s our responsibility to guide them!
Here is a list of (free, discounted or inexpensive) tools I’m currently using to communicate, teach, and organize online:
Membervault: this is my LMS (learning management system). I love them for many reasons, and one is that they don’t hide behind a corporate veneer. They’re real people. You know who to go to with questions. AND their free version always includes 50 users but they’ve doubled it to 100 right now. So you can have 100 students in there for free!
Zoom Cloud Meetings: I’ve used zoom for years. It’s free for two-person meetings and up to 40min meetings with multiple people.
Active Campaign: this is my ESP (email service provider) and can also be a CRM. They don’t have a free version, so if you want free to start try ConvertKit or Mailchimp.
Loom: I use this for screen recordings with my video thumbnail in the corner. They have cut their prices significantly for the pandemic response and many can just use the free version like me.
Planoly: scheduling for Insta and Pinterest, though I only use it for IG. Free version totally enough for beginning businesses!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
