10 Tools To Improve Your B2B Small Business
It takes a lot of courage to start your own B2B company. Even the faint of heart will be scared away by the prospect of being your own boss and all the responsibilities that come with it.
You, on the other hand, were up to the challenge, and now you're awash in work and leads! That is both a good and a negative thing. You must preserve the business that has already grown, but you must also continue to expand in order to avoid stagnation. It's now or never to be organized!
With that in mind, I've compiled a list of some of the greatest B2B small business apps and tools. You may utilize these tools to improve your B2B business whether you're just starting out as a small firm or have a few years under your belt.

As a B2B business owner, you're probably well aware of the value of social media marketing. Finding the time to publish, remark, and see if your efforts are paying off, on the other hand, may be on the back burner.
You may schedule up to 350 posts across 100 platforms with Hootsuite. It also provides you with improved analytic reports so you don't have to guess whether or not your efforts are paying off.
You've certainly discovered as a B2B business owner that a significant portion of your time is unaccounted for. You've had a full day ahead of you, but how much of it is billable? On both your desktop and mobile device, Toggle allows you to track your time by customer and project.
You can also add team members to your projects so that they can keep track of their own time.
Without a doubt, one of the most outstanding organization apps available. The Berlin-based startup understands how to manage your life and is much more than just a to-do list.
As a result of Wunderlist's recent acquisition by Microsoft, only time will tell what this means for Wunderlist users. However, I can assure you that without Wunderlist, my personal and professional lives would be in disarray (much more so than they are today).
Do you have a hoard of notes stashed in your car, at your desk, on your bedside, and on your kitchen counter? Evernote, on the other hand, takes care of everything.
It's a one-stop shop for storing all of your ideas, articles you'd like to keep for later, and so much more. You may collect and sort all of your thoughts by topic by arranging your notes into notebooks. You can also contribute and share your ideas with others. Evernote also works on a variety of devices, so you can use it at the office (which could be your garage) or at home in your favorite armchair.
You can save internet articles and information to a notebook of your choice using the Evernote webclipper plugin. You can even move emails to a notebook using it!
Quickbooks is a classic, but it's still a goodie. This accounting software is now available on mobile devices, allowing you to monitor balances, send invoices, and receive payments from anywhere.
You can also provide them the opportunity to pay you online using Quickbooks. However, I would advise caution when using this service. The quantity of money you can get is limited by Quickbooks. They may also withhold funds if a transaction appears to be suspect. Within 2-3 business days, cash should be deposited in your account. Allowing payments through Square, which is now connected with Quickbooks, is an alternative. There are no deposit limits, and funds are deposited into your account the next working day.
Do you think you're wiser and more capable now that you have more tools? More importantly, I hope you'll be able to put them to good use in order to make your life easier and your business thrive!
You've probably heard me rave about Canva before, but it's well worth repeating. It doesn't get much better than this free online graphic design tool. Templates are frequently priced in the hundreds of dollars by graphic artists. Canva, on the other hand, allows you to create your own for free!
Sortd is a beta version of an email management program. However, after utilizing it, you'll find it difficult to believe that this tool isn't on the rise.
Sortd is similar to Trello but for email. Create custom columns like "To-do," "Follow Up," or "FYI" — the options are practically limitless. Then, whenever an email arrives, simply drag it to the proper column. You can also add notes, make reminders, and edit the email's title. Individual emails can also be set to "snooze," relegating them to the bottom of your list until the snooze period expires, at which time they will reappear at the top.
Sortd is only available on Chrome right now, and it only works with Gmail.
Knowing how to handle taxes is maybe one of the most intimidating elements of operating a business. And, in particular, sales tax.
This is where TaxJar can help. This application works with your existing platforms, such as Square, to generate automated sales tax reports that break down your totals by city and state. If you like, they can even file your forms for you automatically!
Insightly is a software that combines CRM and project management into one package. All of your contacts, leads, and tasks are kept in one place. For sole proprietorships, there's good news: Insightly has a free version if you just need 1-2 members.
Ahrefs can assist you with the SEO portion of your marketing efforts. You can conduct keyword research, track rankings, uncover backlink opportunities, and research your competition with this B2B marketing tool. Ahrefs provides actionable insights to help you outrank your competition in searches.
The nice aspect about this software is that it also assists you in determining which material ranks highly in your niche. It also includes a web monitoring tool that allows you to keep track of your internet remarks.
