Running a small business is a bit like being a carpenter. To create something great and achieve your desired outcome, you need certain tools—and you need to know how to use them. You have a limited budget, so the tools you pick have to be the essential pieces that will help you get your work done efficiently.

There's no need to worry about finding the perfect platform that will solve all your worries. Choose the apps that work for you and your budget, and connect them using simple business automation. Connecting key apps to each other through automation grows your business efficiently without wasting time on extra back-and-forth work.

And you are freed up to focus on what matters most: Building something that will last.
