When it comes to running any business, a good rule of thumb is “Work smarter, not harder”. Over the years we have tried (what feels like) all the things. Some of them worked great, while others didn’t. However, we have now found and rounded up the Best Apps for Wedding Pros to help you run your business!

1. Front Email Management
If you have a team, Front is an amazing tool. Our favorite features include: The comment section on emails for team members fo updates, assigning emails to team members, email tags, and if you are an “inbox zero” person- this is also amazing because your emails can be tagged & archived and they disappear from your inbox (but aren’t deleted!)
We use Asana for back end tasks regarding everything from client management, blog post schedules, and random to do’s that pop up. Each member of our team has a “To Do” list that we can all add to when needed. It’s a great system to keep on top of small tasks that can often be forgotten or fall to the wayside.
We use Slack for all of our team communication. We have a team thread that we use most for overall updates, but we also have more detailed threads relating to certain projects. Slack is great because you can set your own boundaries on when you want to receive notifications & for keeping work chats all in one place.
4. Tailwind App
If you aren’t planning your Pinterest pins yet.. DO IT NOW. Not only does it save a ton of time, but it gives you time to really think about what your keywords will be & makes sure that the content you are putting out there is worthwhile. We plan out our blog posts and Pinterest pretty far in advance to make sure our content is consistent & valuable. We love using Tailwind to help us plan out our Pinterest content. They have a direct partnership with Pinterest so it's the only app I trust for it! Need a little help with your Pinterest? Check our our free Pinterest mini class HERE!
We use Canva for everything from creating Instagram stories, Pinterest posts, YouTube thumbnails, and even our client mood boards. Canva is a great way to integrate your brand and create consistent marketing for all visual aspects that you use. You can use the free version or upgrade to access more images and cooler fonts.
We use a lot more than just these 5, but these are some of our favorites and the most versatile for anyone one that runs a business. We would love to hear if you use any of these or if you have other systems that work great for you!
