There are lots of great resources out there for Entrepreneurs, however sometimes you don’t hear about them until another business owner mentions them.   Hear are some of the best I’ve found.

1. Hootsuite

You might have heard of Hootsuite, but if you haven’t heard about it then you should definitely go and check it out.  It lets you log in to multiple social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc and post to all of them.  It’s great for scheduling content so that even when you’re away your social output keeps flowing.  It’s available on the web and as an app on most smartphones.

2. Toggl

Toggl is a great web-based tool for tracking the amount of time you are spending on projects.  You can even produce time sheets for invoicing your business clients.

3. Wordswag

Wordswag is an amazing little app on smartphones for producing word-based graphics on the move.  It has lots of built-in backgrounds or you can import your own.  Add text from a range of fonts and you’re good to go.  Recommended if you like posting out inspirational quotes.

This highly regarded book is a must-read for people starting out.  The self-help book teaches people how to be productive through periods of personal change.

5. Mailchimp

Mailchimp is available on the web and also as a smartphone app.  It lets you create and manage subscription lists so that you can send out emails and newsletters.  It also integrates well with websites to help with gaining subscriptions.

6. People Per Hour

This website is a great resource for two things.  If you need a creative person (web, marketing, graphics) for a task then you can post a job and wait for the replies to roll in.  Secondly, if you are a creative person starting out in business then you can reply to ads and post your own ads showing off what you can do!

7. Google Analytics

This handy service shows you exactly what’s going on with your website.  It tells you when people are visiting, how long they stay for, when they leave and where they are from.  It helps you focus on when to advertise and who to market to.

8. Entrepreneur Handbook

This website is all about helping out budding and existing Entrepreneurs.  It has lots of articles and advice to give and also a jobs board!

9. Last Pass

So, you have your website login, your social media logins  How do you remember them all?  Having a post-it note isn’t the most secure way, this website is.  One login, one password.  Sorted.

10. Dropbox

If you’ve never heard of Dropbox before, it’s a cloud-based storage space.  You can transfer any file over the internet and download it from anywhere.  Very handy for collaboration and sending large files to clients.
