It takes a team to successfully grow a business, but for many creatives, it’s only a team of one or two. By leaning on high-performing tools, everyday tasks will be made simpler leaving you to focus on what you do best: creating. The following are five of my favorite business tools for creative entrepreneurs that I use constantly.
The biggest gripe with most email marketing services is the lack of creative freedom. Flodesk is a game-changer in email marketing because their elegant deigns are made with brand-customization in mind. Amazing! Marketing is so much more effective when its on-brand.
To get you started, Flodesk has a library of stylish templates to help you welcome, nurture, and convert subscribers into customers. With built-in partnerships with other successful entrepreneurs, each template is designed to help you up your email game. Plus, and customizing them is simple. A few clicks later and the templates transform to match your brand’s unique look and feel.
