My Software

Lyrical Host

My Hosting Company

Having had a website since 2010, I have used various platforms and hosting. At one stage I was paying hundreds each month for hosting alone until I came across Lyrical Host.

And thank goodness I did. They are hands down the best hosting company I have ever had. I now also host my domains with them.

Gone are the days of technical difficulties as they actually help with WordPress issues and questions. Plus they have amazing ethics, a fantastic Facebook community and training resources available.

MailerLite

My Email Tool

I started building an email list in 2020 even though it had been on my radar for a while, I felt overwhelmed with where to start and how.

I used to use a different platform which I found clunky and tricky to use before I started using MailerLite.

It’s got so many great functions which are simple and easy to use and set up. I use their form builder, their automation option to send welcome sequences and their intuitive email builder.

Dubsado

My Client Management System

I am a fairly new user of Dubsado, but it’s AWESOME. It’s a CRM (customer relationship management) tool where you essentially manage your whole business.

It’s changed the way I work and onboard clients. It means I can send invoices and contracts straight from the Dubsado dashboard with ease.

They also have automated workflows so you can let your business tick over even when you are out of the office. Plus there are proposal templates, a calendar for arranging meetings and client portals to name a few.

I’ve not even dived into setting up half of the functions yet, but I can’t wait to delve into how else I can improve my daily workflow with Dubsado.

Planoly

My Instagram Scheduling Tool

I have been using the Instagram scheduling tool Planoly for a number of years now and it’s great.

I can plan my Instagram feed with ease, schedule my Instagram stories ready to alert me via my phone and use the auto-post function. It also gives me the analytics to see how everything is performing.

Simple and easy to use, it gives me all I need to plan my Instagram strategy.

SocialBee

My Social Media Management Tool

I am new to SocialBee and haven’t uncovered most of the features as of yet. But so far I am LOVING the evergreen content scheduling the most. It reposts evergreen content to your social channels which is so useful.

It also has great scheduling options for all your feeds, with content folders and helps to mix up your content ideas to keep your feeds fresh. I can’t wait to experiment further with this great tool.

My Office Equipment ⚡️

 

2021 Apple iMac (24-inch, 256GB) – Pink

I recently upgraded my desktop computer, I have been using Imacs for around 10 years now. I went from the 27″ screen down to this beauty of a computer which is 24″ screen size. I was worried it’d be too small, but I was wrong, it’s perfect.

Not only is it pink!? I mean, come on! But it’s speedy and has a great webcam.

Apple Magic Trackpad

I switched to the trackpad a few years ago after suffering from an aching wrist. It sorted out my ache and I now couldn’t go back to a regular mouse.

Apple Pencil

I love my new apple pencil, which I use with my iPad for note-taking and playing in Procreate. It’s fun, but really intuitive too.

2020 Apple iPad

I recently upgraded my iPad as my old number wouldn’t allow me to update a fair few apps and I love it. It’s a great size, is really useful to use on the go. I use mine for notes when doing live sessions online as well as productivity planning in Notion.

Olympus PEN E-PL8 (no longer available)

Try The Olympus Pen E-pl10

My go-to camera. I used to have a DSLR, but to be honest, I didn’t use half the settings. I switched over the Pen and it’s perfect for me. I use it for family shots and for client campaigns teamed with a 14-42mm EZ Lens, it’s pure magic.

I also wirelessly transfer images to my phone where I can edit and upload. It has a cool selfie flip screen and video recording too.

Ipad Case

I always have cases for my devices and so far I am loving this mint green number. The hand strap really saves my wrists and it’s super protected.

Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Green

I try to keep up to date with my iPhone as I use it extensively for running Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. Mostly for Instagram posting and the larger screen works well for this. But it’s not so big that I can’t fit it in my pocket or bag.

Phone Case

Green again, can you see a theme?! Again, I always have cases for my devices and after much searching and looking at reviews I went for this one. So far, so good in protecting my phone from bumps or knocks. Plus it looks cute!

Ring Light

I didn’t have a ring light before but this is great. I mainly use it as a stand for doing Instagram live sessions so I don’t need to hold my phone. My only reservation is not being able to have my phone in vertical with the light at the same time.

Roberts Radio

My trusty Roberts radio keeps the tunes flowing. I connect it up to my iMac to listen to Spotify or tune in on DAB for Radio X. I am all about indie tracks.

USB Adapter

This is a little technical divide to ensure I can hook up everything to my iMac. I’ve not used it much yet, but I am sure it’ll prove very handy.

Water Bottle

It’s important to get my 2 litres a day. So I always use a water bottle to ensure I keep hydrated.

I just bought this smaller version of my usual Camelbak (we all have Camelbaks in the Hollis house as they are amazing) so that I can take it out and about in my rucksack.
