Resources for Your Small Business or Non Profit

Sometimes the many hats we wear can be overwhelming, where do you even begin? I've listed some of my favorite low and no cost small business marketing resources below. I do not get kickbacks from these companies for sharing, but I do use these services in my daily work and they can help you too!

You don't have to do everything alone. Try these resources out, and if you need any help, give me a shout at lindseyroweparker@gmail.com

Website Mockup

WEBSITE

There are a ton of website creators out there, from Squarespace, Wordpress, you name it. If you are looking for easy drag and drop website with additional capabilities as you grow, Wix.com is a great option. This website is built on Wix. You can do this yourself!

Designer in Studio

GRAPHIC DESIGN

There are times when you need to hire a professional designer, and there are times when you just need a DIY FIX. You need something TODAY for social media, or a quick invite and Canva.com is your answer. Super easy premade templates, export and ready in minutes. Stop using word or powerpoint to create your graphics. Try it out, I promise you can do it.

EMAIL SIGNATURES

What? You mean those fancy branded signatures are not just cut and pasted into your email settings? Nope. You can get great low cost branded signatures for just yourself or a whole team that are interactive and designed - by YOU.

You got this.

VIDEO CREATOR

You've taken videos on your smartphone, but you need to cut them down a bit for your social media, or you need to add text or a logo? Enter WeVideo. Easy to use, add your logo, music, stock footage too if you want to get crazy. This video creation platform can be super simple, or if you want to max out its capabilities, there are some higher level functionalities available.  Video is not out of your reach.

EMAIL MARKETING

Everybody's doing it. Some better than others, but email is a great way to stay top of mind with your customers or donors. Mailchimp.com is a very easy email marketing service provider that is usable for the novice. Get your list off that excel grid and start sending branded messages to your subscribers! Plus when you really get the hang of it, you can promote your business across email, social, landing pages, postcards, and more — all from a single platform.

PROFESSIONAL PRINTING

There are a ton of inexpensive online printing companies out there, but there is something about opening a box of business cards, stickers or post cards hot off the presses from Moo.com. They just get me. With hundreds of templates to choose from, as well as the ability to upload your own designs, Moo is easy to use, has fabulous customer service (I've used it!) and while they are not the cheapest choice, my clients have told me they can instantly see and feel the difference in the quality. You will too. 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

I admit I learned about gantt charts late in my career, now I don't know how I functioned without them! If you need an intuitive online solution and visual way to plan your large projects, give TeamGantt a whirl. You don't need to be a data whiz to manage your projects with a gantt chart. Meet deadlines, streamline team communication, and keep everyone updated and happy.

We all love happy clients and customers!
