Starting an online business can be daunting, especially if you aren’t equipped with the essential tools. Having the right programs, applications, and other tools can help with the productivity and management of your work. Here are a few essential tools for starting an online business:

Getting started
  1. My favorite tool for forming a business in any state is Legalinc. It’s a super easy, convenient, and affordable way to form a business online in any state.**
  2. For banking, I prefer Novo. They’re a 100% online bank, and better yet, 100% free.**

Now you’ve started your business, formed your entity and opened up your business bank account. What’s next? You need to promote your business, of course! Here are a few ways to market your business.

Promoting Your Business
  1. Create a beautiful website with WordPress. It’s my favorite place to create a good website since there are endless options. However, I have heard great things about Square Space as well. Or if you’re selling a lot of products, I’ve heard Shopify is a great option. If you’re unsure how to create a site, watching a couple of tutorials on YouTube can be a good starting place.
  2. Additionally, there are times when you have to hire someone for the things you can’t do alone. My favorite platforms for finding temporary or contract work are Fiver and Upwork. For instance, if you need a design or logo, you can head to either platform to find someone to create it for you.
