Accounting/Invoicing

FRESHBOOKS –

This is by far my favorite cloud invoicing system. I can keep detailed records of my clients information, notes, projects, time tracking, estimates, expenses, and reports. Additionally, I can assign staff to manage and use these wonderful features as well. Your invoices can be sent out directly to your clients via email or postal mail and there are several options to use for payments like PayPal, Google Checkout, Checks, and so much more.

On their free plan, have up to 3 free clients or pay a small monthly fee for more clients. Join Freshbook and start billing clients accurately!

Social Media Management

HOOTSUITE 

Hootsuite is a centralized dashboard that allows you to manage up to 5 social networks, schedule your status updates, track analytics, manage contacts, and view your social media accounts all on one dashboard. That is all on a free plan! Can you believe it? This is something I use on a daily basis, and I find it highly beneficial for all my needs and my clients needs too. If you would like to explore your social media potential in the near future then hop on over to HootSuite and see how your social networking will become more manageable. Add staff to your account for $10.00 a month.

File Sharing

DROPBOX 

With Dropbox, you can share files with not only with your clients but with family and friends as well, which is an added bonus for me. You can share pictures, spreadsheet, documents, and many other files too via this cloud storage system. Dropbox allows you and your client to have access to the information that you are collecting or using for client projects. It is free and with referrals you get bonus space for even more storage. So, to start sharing your files with co-workers, clients, family and friends Sign Up Here. As a bonus for you, use this referral link and give us both 500MB of additional storage.
