Tools for Small Business Owners

Posted by Insightlink on 12/16/21

It is no secret that owning and operating a small business can be tedious. From having to promote and market the products to managing clients and customer service, there are many hats that small business owners wear in order to make the business run smoothly. Luckily, there are also several tools and resources that managers and business owners alike can take advantage of to improve efficiency and make their business operations function without much additional work. This is a great way to avoid having to hire more people, and simply let the tools make the business run better. Below is a list of some of those tools and resources. 

  • Canva. Canva is a great tool for graphic design and marketing products. From creating social media posts to even designing logos and business cards, Canva is a great resource for beginners and seasoned graphic designers alike to build and create aesthetically pleasing content and marketing material. This is a free resource, with a premium option for access to more design content and features.
  • Wix. Wix is an online website builder that helps small business owners build and create their own business websites. From online blogs to digital shopping sites, Wix has the capability to make any website come to life. The tools on this resource span outside design, with the potential to purchase domain names and even plan and automate social media and blog posts. Wix gives small business owners the tools to customize and market their brand. This is also a free tool, but has the option for add-ons like domain purchasing, website management, and SEO tools. 
  • Unsecured line of credit. Much like a line of credit people use to borrow money based on their home's value, small business owners can borrow on an unsecured line of credit to make purchases on behalf of their business in moments when cash is needed. Need to replace a piece of equipment or remodel a part of the storefront? An unsecured line of credit is the perfect tool to allow small business owners to borrow funds when needed.

From marketing tools to small business financing options, there are many resources that business owners can take advantage of to make their company run efficiently and automatically. While there are a myriad of other resources to get a small business growing and thriving, this shortlist is a great place to start.
