The Software I Use to Run My Business

Behind the Scenes

I've had an online business for almost ten years, focusing on e-commerce. I wanted to share some of the software I currently use (as well as what I've used in the past) in case you were looking for recommendations or just curious! I'm fully immersed in the world of creative arts and the world of nerdy computer stuff, lol. A lot of this software isn't just dang useful and efficient but also either fun to use or has fun results. (Case in point: Woocommerce isn't fun to use if you're not super techy, but it looks pretty once you've customized it!)

Some of the links on this page are affiliate links. That means I get a small commission if you purchase through this link. However, I make it a point to only share tools and resources I truly love and use.Β
