Tools and Resources

Here’s the list of tools that we’re going to need on this journey

WordPress Themes

If you’re building a local service business, there isn’t a better collection of themes out there than these.  From home cleaning, to lawn-care, to moving service, to painting, to car detailing, and on and on.

Launch27 Software

For local services, this is what I use for each company we do.  Launch27 handles your online booking form, your scheduling, your credit card processing (with a stripe integration), your recurring services…it’s basically the Shopify for local service businesses.

This is the conversion optimization suite of tools to increase conversions on your website.  Basically for every 100 people that come to your website you want at least 3 people doing business with you. These tools help you get to that number and beyond.

Groove Learning Forum

This one is coming soon but it’s going to a sort of mastermind group that folks can get together and learn and stay motivated and take their businesses to the level.  October 1st Launch!

So that’s it so far. We’re building a one-stop shop to make it as easy as possible to build a real solid business while skipping the usual technical hurdles.

Thanks for joining us on this ride!
