Business Toolbox

At Bloomdocking we strongly encourage people to use technology and services to make their businesses super efficient so they can spend more time on growing their business rather than running it.  We also believe that continually educating yourself will help you be more confident and successful in a shorter amount of time.

The trick is knowing what to use at a given stage of your business development so you aren't spending a ton of money on something that has features or information which isn't relevant to you. Whether you are discovering if an online business is right for you or you're in the startup phase or your ready to grow your business... you don't want to implement something that will end up being super frustrating and a drain on your efficiency.

Below you'll find a list of tools and resources we have actually used and found to be an important part to the overall success of our business.  

Many of these links are affiliate links, which means we may get a commission if you purchase through our site (look for ($)). However, none of the fees of these resources have been increased to compensate us.

Please reach out to us if you have questions on any of what you see below.

WEBSITE / COURSE & MEMBERSHIP PLATFORM / EMAIL MARKETING / WEBINARS

There's a reason Kajabi is known as the best platform for online course creators and membership sites.  It's SUPER easy to use and EVERYTHING is integrated already.  We use it for our website, email marketing, and the blog posts for our podcast.  We'll also be using it for our online courses, membership sites, payment processing, webinars, and so much more.  It's a little more expensive than some other options but the time savings will more than make up for it.

TASK MANAGEMENT / PROJECT PLANNING

Asana is a great tool for managing tasks, project planning, and communicating with your team. We use it for keeping track of everything we are working on as well as those great ideas on the back burner. We also assign tasks to our external service providers and they update us on their status via Asana. The FREE version works for us but there is also a paid option that has some additional functionality.

The 5 Second Rule Book

The 5 Second Rule: Transform your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage - Mel Robbins

We love this book because Mel is very good at pointing out - regardless of your excuses, you just need to do it. Her techniques help you immediately change your behavior so you can take action and get results. She gives you inspiration to get some courage to start and the discipline to keep going. Oie has colored place markers all over her book and is constantly referring to it for inspiration!

"There is greatness inside of you and it's on the other side of your excuses." - Mel Robbins

Podcast Recording Device

Podcast Recording Device

Our podcast setup includes a portable recording device so we can record from anywhere! We love this little device because it allows us to record episodes when we are traveling.

Also, this device has multi-channel capabilities which allows us to record our voices on separate tracks so we can control the volume for each person since Darren is much louder than me!

This setup has a studio quality mic and a mic which is meant to use out on the field so its versatility allows us to not be confined to our home studio.

We had to buy an extra set of mics since since there are 2 of us recording together and the bundle includes one of each kind of mic.
