Boudica Marketing - How to work from home

Tools to help you start and grow your online business

If you are looking for ways to work from home and be your own boss, or you have already started a business, but you want to be more organized, check out this list of my favorite marketing, advertising, and business-related tools that will help you get more exposure for your business, brand or products—enabling you to earn money from anywhere with a laptop, camera phone, and internet connection!

I use most of these tools daily. Some are free tools, and some are paid, but they are all very affordable and pay for themselves with increased productivity and organization.

Some links on the page are from my affiliate partners; they will reward us both if you sign up using them.


WordPress is one of the most versatile website-building tools you can use to create your internet home base.

The danger of building your following and audience on other platforms, like social media, is that your page could be shut down anytime and lose all your followers.

That's why building an email list to share content produced on your own website is crucial to growing your online business.

This helps you reach people who want to hear from you and enables you to earn money through blogging, affiliate marketing, ads, or selling your products and services.

Want to get started with WordPress? Click the green underlined link to sign up now for WordPress, and you'll get $25 off!


Collect Money

Collect money online with Square! Square is dependable and offers a way to process credit cards and send invoices for payment.

They have great tools to keep track of all your incoming revenue. It also integrates with Shippo to help you ship, and print shipping labels for your orders.

Use my referall link to sign up now online to take payments with Square and get your first $1,000 in processing fees for free.


Sales Funnels

You can easily make forms on Hubspot for marketing and tracking your customers. Best of all, it's a free customer relationship management tool useful for all-sized businesses.

Ad design tools 

Canva.com creates brilliant ads, flyers, business cards, videos, and custom-branded content. Upgrade to Canva Pro for even more features to make designing anything a breeze.

Trello.com is my favorite organizational tool. You can keep track of everything you are doing, make checklists, collaborate with others to show them your boards, and view your cards if they need to be involved. It's been a lifesaver for my business, and my clients love it because they can see what I'm working on and communicate there with me. 

Midjourney.com lets you use descriptive text prompts to make beautiful AI art whenever you need something original. You'll need a Discord account to use it. There are also monthly fees to use the content commercially.

Google Workspace

Get a Google Workspace for 20% off when you sign up using my affiliate link.
