5 Tools To Get Your Start-Up Off The Ground

5 Tools To Get Your Start-Up Off The Ground
  • Opening Intro -

    If your business is still in its infancy or is just an idea on a notepad, then it is time to get things moving.


You are going to have a heavy workload but don’t think that you have to do everything yourself. Many programs and services can make your day-to-day tasks a lot more manageable.


Does your new company need a professional website but you don’t have the funds or inclination to hire a professional developer? WordPress allows almost anyone to create a high-quality website with minimal technical skills.
Start off by selecting a professional looking template to base your site around. Once that’s completed it’s easy to use WordPress’s platform to upload photos, landing pages, and other content.

Hosting is also taken care of, and you will be assisted with selecting a domain name.

Microsoft Excel

To keep track of your initial expenses and income, you will want to use an Excel spreadsheet. You will also want spreadsheets to keep track of your clients, your employee information, work that you have delegated, and a range of other information.

Now Excel is a very flexible program that not only stores information but can also help you edit and manage it. If your skills are a bit rusty, then it may be time for a refresher. Take a look at Excel Semi Pro to learn how to sort columns and manipulate data.


If you need a company logo or some other graphics, then Fiverr is the site to visit. The platform is an online marketplace where designers showcase their work and offer their services. Now, as the name suggests, basic services start at $5. However, many people offer bonus and add-on services that can increase the price.

Consider hiring three different logo designers and then sending them all the same brief. You can then pick the best result for your company logo.


To get your business off the ground, you will need to market it effectively. You will already be aware that social media is King when it comes to marketing and this is likely where most of your efforts will lie. To help streamline your social media marketing strategy consider getting Hootsuite. This program allows users to manage all their social media accounts and communications from one simple dashboard.
You can even access reports that show who is reading and reacting to your posts.


If you plan to sell products via your website, then Shopify is an effective service to get your online store running.  The service is user-friendly and will allow you to integrate a storefront directly into your company website.  By signing up, you will be assisted with inventory management and payment processing.


These tools will help you get organized, develop a strong online presence, and help minimize workloads. There will still be a hard grind ahead of you, but remember, it’s important to work smart as well as hard. Good luck with your start-up and future business endeavors.
