3 Things Every Business Needs


Are you a side hustler? Do you have an online business on the side? Or are you planning to start your dream business?

If so, you know that it's not always easy to keep everything running smoothly. Juggling a day job and your business can be tough, but it's important to remember that there are three things every business needs in order to thrive and succeed. 

In today's blog post, we're going to take a look at those three things, and we'll also give you some apps and websites that can help you with those needs.

1. Create your website.  Your website serves as your go-to place for potential clients who would like to know more about your business. It also represents your brand and most of the time can help you manage customer inquiries, partnerships, and purchases all in one place. As you know creating and maintaining your website is costly and time-consuming because you would need to hire experts and website developers/designers. However, there are no-code websites (just drag and drop) that you can utilize if you are still starting out your business. Some of these are, Milkshake, Squarespace, Mailchimp and WoCode. Most of these are free website-builder and some might ask you for additional fees depending on the feature you would like to unlock. 

2Graphics for social media and branding. As important as your website, having a social media graphic representation and branding go-to is essential. In this era, where your social media presence is one deciding factor for purchasing your products, having aesthetic and well-put content in a visually appealing way is necessary. Whether you are selling, working with brands, apps/websites like Canva (free and paid version),  Pexel and Unsplash (royalty-free stock images), StencilVisme, and Vista Create can do the ultimate job. 

3. Finance and accounting. Let’s face it, most of us consider bookkeeping and accounting as not our cup of tea. If you are just in a constant fight with numbers, website like is an all-in-one financial toolkit that can keep your taxes to bookkeeping on track. Plus they are running a free trial, no credit card is required! 

And there you have it, 3 things every business need. There could still be a whole lot more that you will need while you grow your business but it is just as important to know the essentials when starting up.
