"One easy way to stick out answering questions in Facebook groups - shoot a video answering the question - you'll stick out like gold in a bucket full of lead. Answering questions is your branding." – Ren Jones


Trainerize (Price varies) -

It’s very easy to set up and user-friendly. You can add videos from YouTube or your videos if you have your own recordings. The visual component is key for clients!

ProCoach ($99/month+) -

This is more of a longer approach (a year-long program) as this gives daily lessons. Each day sets behavioral components to build habits that your clients need to keep up with.

Canva (Free version available) -

It’s the poor man’s Photoshop. Make photos magical without the expertise of a graphic designer! You can generate testimonials from your clients using their templates.

Facebook (Free) -

Don’t underestimate the business opportunities here! Ren got a job because people saw his content. You can build your brand by answering questions on fitness groups.

Tripit ($50/year) -

Forward all your reservations through this app! Hotels, flights, Airbnb, including necessary addresses and numbers, are all organized for you.

Evernote (Free version available) -

Besides being a note-taking app, you can use it to pull articles off from the internet to save them for later.

LastPass (free version available) -

Never go through the nightmare of remembering your complicated passwords. Additionally, you can let other people use them without them seeing it!

Hubdoc ($20/month) -

Automatically integrate all your credit cards, statements into a central filing system and take photos of receipts for your bookkeeper!

Skitch (Free option available) -

A simple app on your phone that allows you to crop and annotate pictures quickly!

TunnelBear ($9.99/month) -

This app is crucial for protecting your information when you use public networks. It’s a VPN (Virtual Private Network) that cloaks your IP address, so you don’t get hacked.

SelfControl (Free) -

A productivity tool keeps you away from procrastination. You can set a timer to block you from apps and websites, then restart your system to get access again after working!

Backblaze ($6/month) -

Save your data on this cloud software to give you peace of mind from data loss. Don’t let your precious photos and irreplaceable work files get lost forever!
