Being an online entrepreneur requires handling many tasks in one day. That is the reason why it is important to automate as many tasks as possible so that your days do not become too overwhelming. I personally use a few online tools that allow me to run my business on automation and allows me to spend only 2-3 hours maximum per day to manage my business.

Here are below my top online tools I'd recommend to any aspiring online entrepreneurs.

Marketing

Clickfunnels

ClickFunnels is an online tool, that you can use to easily create series of web pages that people have to navigate through in order to purchase a product or join an email list, or a webinar, and you don’t need to know a single line of code. I have used it for over a year now and this has helped me a lot in setting up my business on automation.

Facebook ads

Love it or hate it, advertising is powerful when you know what you do. It can seem pretty overwhelming in the beginning but once you learn the basic advertising techniques, this will boost your business.

CRM

GetResponse

 This is a very versatile newsletter service that supports some email automation features. If you are looking for a marketing automation platform and don't have the budget or skills to afford the top tools. GetResponse is the tool you need.

Manychat

Messenger bot us becoming more and more popular and it is now very easy to set up. No need to learn how to code, their user interface is very friendly and easy to navigate. Not only this can be used for CRM purposes but also for marketing. Rather than doing all the manual work, all you need to do is set up your automation and let it do the work for you anytime someone decides to use it.

Analytics

Google Analytics

 All you need to do is install a piece of code on your website and Google Analytics will do the rest of the job for you. It is a good way to track the traffic on your website and see what type of content your audience like.

Bitly

 this online tool will allow you to shorten your links and even customize the links with the keywords of your choice related to the piece of content you are redirecting the user to. It will help you also track the number of clicks over time, where does your traffic comes from online and from what country.

Content creation

Canva

Awesome tool to create graphic designs even if you are not a professional. They offer everything a content creator needs. You can join for free and use thousands of free elements like photos, text, shapes, graphics and more. They also have paid services but I personally never used it.

Adobe Spark

I am using it more and more lately. Pretty similar to Canva with great templates to create not only graphics but also videos. 

Social Media Management

Hootsuite

 if you need to schedule your content for many platforms under one roof, this is what HootSuite can do for you. I have been using it since 2015 and I am loving it. not only can you schedule your content on several platforms at once but also offers reporting on your social media campaigns and helps create customize feed to see the content you are only interested in.

IFTTT

Great app to automate actions you do regularly. The acronym stands for " If This Then That". Very easy to setup and works for everything.

Copywriting

Grammarly

 this is an add-on you can install on your web browser to correct your grammar. Very handy tool, especially as .a blogger or journalist writing content every day. The last thing you want is lose credibility just because of grammar mistakes. That's personally something I cannot stand. So if tools can help you, why not use it.

Hemingway

The app highlights lengthy, complex sentences and common errors; if you see a yellow sentence, shorten or split it. If you see a red highlight, your sentence is so dense and complicated that your readers will get lost trying to follow. Try it yourself, you will love it. Especially if you are just starting blogging and have no experience writing.

There you go. With all these tools at your disposal with most of them being free, you will be able to be better organized and more efficient on handling your business activity on daily basis.

What about you? What online tools would you recommend that have helped you run your business successfully?
