CRMs & Organization

Dubsado is LIFE for getting your client list organized.

Email marketing? Here’s our #1 <3

We’ve been using Dropbox since the beginning! Highly recommend for file storage.

Google is the powerhouse of organization. Sign up for G Suite to keep everything in one place.

Shift allows you to use many (if not all) of your apps in one place. It’s a dashboard to replace all of the dashoboards and consolidates your 8,000 browser tabs that are open at once. 

Airtable is an amazing tool for organizing data if you need something way more visual the Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel. Highly recommend.
