Free Tools That Make Working Remotely Easy

by | Web Design

Can you imagine yourself as a successful, confident business owner?

One who knows her value, sells sincerely, and consistently hits income goals while at it?

It’s not as far fetched as it may seem to you right now.

In fact, NOW is the perfect time to go all-in and launch your business.

Right now there are fewer social obligations than usual which means more time on your hands to chase your idea and start that side hustle.

Not sure where to start?

Today I’m sharing with you the tools I use to run my 100% remote and online web design business for the past 4+ years.


Cut down on the back and forth what time works for you? emails when scheduling a meeting, and check out this time-saving tool that integrates with your calendar platform and automatically displayed available time slots. You can block off time blocks, make yourself available only certain days of the week, gather information before your meeting begins, and so much more with the custom options.

Price: Free with upgrades available.


Doing a walkthrough, sharing a presentation, or giving feedback can be tricky when you’re not in the same room together. That’s why I love doing screen recordings to share exactly what I’m looking at and thinking about with a client as I’m walking them through their new website design. Loom is great when demonstrating something visual or when you want to record a how-to.

Price: Free with upgrades available.


You may have heard of Zoom as their platform has EXPLODED with millions of users on their platform using it to continue learning online, connect with family members, and run their business.

Price: Free with upgrades available. The free plan has a 40 minute meeting time cap.


Communicating with your audience is crucial when you aren’t able to physically connect in person and having an email list is one great way to do that. I’ve tried MailChimp and Aweber, and I gotta say that Convertkit has been the most effective email marketing software I’ve ever used. They make automation easy and their opt-in forms are beautiful and easy to customize.

Price: Plans starting at $29/month

How are you adjusting to working 100% online? What tools do you use to work from home?
