Essential Tools for Running a Business

How we collaborate, develop and promote our product, support customers, and stay productive

About the Book

Read what tools we use to design develop, collaborate, support customers, and market our product - all illustrated with plenty of screenshots.

As a software company, we need tools to collaborate, code, promote our product, and support our customers. This book lists every tool we use and how it helps us. 

The list is a result of running a business for over 9 years. We started off with only a few basic tools, mainly for coding; as we grew, our needs grew with us: we needed to improve how we track our marketing campaigns, create designs and content, organize our work, and automate repetitive tasks. 

We hope you find something that’ll help you with your particular challenge, or just inspire you to try out a few new apps.
