TOOLS + RESOURCES
Welcome to Pet Marketing Unleashed's curated list of tools to help you grow your pet business. These tools are ONLY ones that we use or use with our clients and absolutely love.
While we're here, we wanted to mention that we're affiliates for some of the below, too! This means we may earn commission whenever someone uses our links to purchase. But, don't worry, it doesn't cost you a penny! In fact, in partnering with some of these brands in an affiliate relationship, we're able to offer some pretty awesome deals and/or extended trials. Details are below. Enjoy!
BUSINESS & MARKETING TOOLS
Using GSuite is an affordable and efficient way for all businesses to have a professional email address domain. Plus, almost everything syncs and integrates with Gmail! Not to mention it allows you to connect your website to Google, letting it know your website exist!
Wix is an affordable and user-friendly website builder that works wonderfully for small pet business. I use it to build websites for my clients, which allows them to maintain and edit their website long-term. No more stagnant websites that you can't edit instantly and easily!
Bank Novo is the absolute best business checking option there. Better yet, it's all online, completely free to use, and built for online entrepreneurs! Sign up for an account and use code 'MikaelaVargas' to get $40 back!
If you're on our email list, you get emails from Convertkit! If you're wanting to dig into true email marketing outside of just newsletters, Convertkit is a wonderful platform. Plus, they now offer a free plan to get started!
Canva is an insanely valuable resource for pet business owners. You can create anything you want from business cards and flyers to social media templates and icons. I create templates in the shop using Canva (like my Welcome Packet templates), so you can easily customize them to your own business!

The PMU Shop, our affiliate program, our courses, and payments all run through Thrivecart! The two best things about Thrivecart? 1. It's just a one-time payment and you never have to pay again (no monthly payments!!) and 2. The features are so freakin' out of this world. This is a robust software for real.
