Whether you’re a joiner, plumber, electrician or anything else, here’s a bunch of business resources that you might find useful. I’ve run my own businesses for a long time and know how hard it is to find good services that you know you can trust. Also check out my Small Business Toolbox site for a bunch of useful information all dedicated to the hard working self employed.
Extra Stuff on Patreon
Over on my Patreon I publish a whole load of extra stuff, especially aimed at small businesses. Detailed job pricing information, SketchUp tutorials, exclusive behind the scenes updates and access to all exclusive content published on the Small Business Toolbox Patreon – so you don’t have to support me twice! This includes invoice templates, quote templates and a bunch of other useful stuff. Access from just $1.
iZettle for Card Payments
iZettle has changed how I do business – most transactions are face-to-face credit card payments now. No more chasing customers, no more cheques, no more banking cash. Receipts are automated by e-mail or text, I can take all major credit cards including Amex at no extra cost – it’s professional and zero hassle. At the moment you can get the card reader for just £19+VAT. iZettle take a small cut of each sale, normally 1.75% to cover their costs – this is absorbed in to my daily rates. Just use the link below for more info:
123-Reg for Domain Names
I use 123-Reg for my domain name registration and they’ve always been awesome. Great customer service and UK-based.
SiteGround for Ultra-Fast Web Hosting
You can use 123-Reg for web hosting AND domain names but I like to keep things separate. SiteGround provide awesome web hosting services – ultra fast and ultra secure. Fantastic support too.
