My lovely assistant Angela introduced me to Trello last spring and I have fallen head-over-heels! Trello is a web-based list making application, so naturally, I was resistant at first. I’m a pen & paper girl at heart — give me a ballpoint pen over a keyboard any day! BUT, it has truly been the most versatile tool to help organize multiple brands & projects. Now, it’s my go-to place to “download” my ideas and organize them, assign due dates, and so much more! Did I mention it’s also FREE?

A year ago, I knew ZERO about Pinterest for Business. I had a personal Pinterest account for recipes + home inspo, but that’s it. After learning about the power of Pinterest for business at one of our TuesdaysTogether meetups last year, I started an account for White Spruce Market. Right out of the gate, we used Tailwind to schedule + optimize all of our pins. In just a few short months, we’ve reached over 80k monthly views, which recently started converting to shop traffic. Pinterest is a long game, and does require some consistency + patience, but it can be SO SIMPLE, especially if you use a program like Tailwind (pictured below).

Canva is a web-based drag & drop graphic design program. I’ve known about Canva for years, and used it briefly a couple of years ago (but only on the phone app), and I had NO idea how much easier it could make my life! Last year, I started using the desktop version of Canva, and it has literally revolutionized my content creation process.
Free: for individuals and small groups working on quick projects
Pro: for individuals and small teams who need more customization and productivity (this is my plan! It’s only $10/mo and great value for money).
Enterprise: for larger teams who need advanced brand and collaboration control
