When you first start your business, your main focus should be on building a foundation. You will need website hosting to keep your site up and running, a great CRM to help manage client relationships, a great invoicing system (because you need to get paid!), a password system (to save your memory!), project management and document storing systems to keep your projects organized, and a scheduling system to get clients on your calendar!

When you hit this stage of your business, the next step is to move from trading hours for dollars. Now is the time to start thinking of creating an online course, program, or product with integrated shopping cart functionality to scale your business quicker! That means you need some amazing landing pages to build your lead magnets and pop-ups on, a robust email marketing system, a social media scheduler to get your message out to the masses.
