BEST ONLINE CALENDAR FOR CONSULTANTS & COACHES (AND OTHER SERVICE PROVIDERS)

Many of my clients and class participants have asked me what I think is the best online calendar to use to book appointments with their clients.

I recommend vCita’s online calendar for service-based businesses as I’ve tried several online scheduling tools, but have found vCita to be exactly what my business needs. It’s made it much easier for me to manage my calendar, and much easier for clients to reach me — especially this time of year when I am extremely busy.

I’ve been using vCita since 2014, and I tell you, when I realized how much vCita was benefiting my business, I was hooked. I became a partner and began helping my clients to start taking appointments from their clients as well.

4 WAYS TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS WITHOUT USING SOCIAL MEDIA

In November, I wrote a blog post based on a 2021 prediction that I read stating that one of the tech giants was going to take a huge hit. The person that made this prediction said that the tech giant would go down. I never published the post, because I was not familiar with the gentleman making the prediction. I will, however, update it and post it.

As you can see, right now there are some things going on with some social media channels that I won’t get into here. What I will do is help you to prepare if any or all of them should go down for any length of time.

YOUTUBE TV PRICE INCREASE: HOW TO CANCEL YOUR YOUTUBE TV MEMBERSHIP (+ WHERE TO FIND & WATCH FREE MOVIES)

I have been trying to decide whether to cancel my YouTube TV membership for about a year now because I just simply don’t watch TV much. I only had it because I love the old, black, and white movies on Turner Classic Movies and King of Queens reruns.

I was trying to decide whether watching these shows once or twice a month was worth the $49 a month fee.

Well, today’s news regarding the YouTube TV price increase to $65 has helped me make that decision. As a current YouTube TV subscriber, it kind of feels like a slap in the face for them not to allow us to continue paying our current price, but it is what it is.

HOW DO I BUY A DOMAIN NAME?

Disclosure: Some companies that I mention are my marketing and training partners. I am an affiliate of others. I get commissions for purchases made through affiliate links on this page. I only recommend products and services from companies I trust, tools I’ve used, and those that I highly recommend and feel may be of value to you and beneficial to your marketing efforts.

Are you thinking about creating a website for your business, but don’t know where to begin? Well, here’s where you start.
