Getting after grateful by sharing ten of the businesses whose products and services enable some of the main functionality features of the swHw ministry. What they do allows us to connect and serve you on the regular, so this is our way of saying THANK YOU to each of you for what you do! (Check them out – you may find something that would be helpful in your work too!)

#1: Basecamp

What they say: Basecamp is more than just a project management tool — it’s an elevated way to work. Teams that switch to Basecamp become better teams. They’re more productive and better organized. They communicate better and require fewer meetings. And they’re far more efficient than before. Being better is a choice — choose Basecamp.

What we say: Our team uses Basecamp daily. We have all of our months broken down into different projects with to do lists, docs/files, message boards, and group chats. You can set work hours so you don’t receive notifications during family time or when you aren’t working. This has been a game changer for us as a team!

#2: DropBox

What they say: These days, everything is smart—your phone, your credit card, your car, maybe even your house. But at work… not so much. Work is a mess, with documents and conversations spread across different platforms that don’t connect. It’s not your fault—technology at work just hasn’t caught up. It’s time for work to get smart. That’s why Dropbox is building the world’s first smart workspace.

What we say: DropBox Plus is our friend! With two terabytes of storage, we’ll never run out! We store all of our member photos from London Adelaide Photography, social media photos from photoshoots, past resources, PDFs, etc. It’s also super simple to share folders and send links to friends and co-workers.

#3: GivingFire

What they say: From the first gift to the final tax report, GivingFire’s online software perfects the art of accepting, tracking, & growing donations.

What we say: 
As a non-profit organization, donations are a huge engine that allow us to continue innovating how we meet and serve working women who love Jesus fiercely. We are so grateful GivingFire allows us to communicate our gratitude for the generosity of our donors as well as communicating with the donors about how to claim the tax benefits for their donation.

#4: Gmail G Suite

What they say: An integrated suite of secure, cloud-native collaboration and productivity apps powered by Google AI. Includes Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Meet and more.

What we say: We have our domain [] linked to Gmail so we are all able to have a email address. We use Docs and Sheets most often, and it’s super helpful to have any updates made in real time. Instead of sending a Word or Excel doc back and forth via email a bunch of times, look into Google Docs and Sheets.

#5: Adobe Creative Cloud

What they say: Creative Cloud is a collection of 20+ desktop and mobile apps and services for photography, design, video, web, UX and more. Now you can take your ideas to new places with Photoshop on the iPad, draw and paint with Fresco, and design for 3D and AR. Join our global creative community — and make something better together.

What we say: Erica, our Graphic Designer, uses Adobe Creative Cloud daily. From APP Devo images to monthly resources, Adobe is a game changer for the true designer at heart! We primarily use Photoshop (mostly photo editing as it suggests and some design work), InDesign (for layout publications; resources, Narrow workbook, Business Trackers, APP Devo Books, etc.), and Illustrator (for logos, illustrations, and everything in-between!)

#6: Keap

What they say: There are many ways Keap wins more business. Turning leads into happy clients is what Keap does. Here’s how: Organize all your info. All your lead, client information, and business communication, organized and segmented, in one place. Always follow-up. Use templated messages, reminders, and automatic emails to quickly follow up with leads. Close more leads. Create a repeatable sales process, from appointments to quotes, to win more business.

What we say: Keap is our CRM of choice. It’s where our email list is stored. We have campaigns set up to send automated emails when someone buys a certain product, signs up for a list, etc. But not just any automated email – every campaign is completely customized to start conversations with the woman who is engaging with a certain product or tool.  They also have incredible customer service.

#7: Vimeo

What they say: Vimeo is all about you and your videos. We build things that help you [CREATE, SHARE, SELL, DISCOVER] videos online and worldwide.

What we say: We use Vimeo to upload all of our swHw member class recordings. You can embed the videos anywhere; i.e. we embed them on our website and in the app. You can also upload videos with your logo on them.

#8: WishList Member

What they say: We Provide Easy to Use Tools and Training to Create More Impact With Membership Sites, Online Courses, and Communities.

What we say: WishList Member is our tool that turns our website into a member portal. We have it linked to our Keap credentials, so it’s easy to keep track of accounts. Without WLM, we wouldn’t have your member portal!

#9: WordPress

What they say: Meet WordPress. WordPress is open source software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app. Beautiful designs, powerful features, and the freedom to build anything you want. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

What we say: Wordpress is our website platform. It’s easy to use; and customizable with plug-ins, add-ons, and templates. They have great customer service and there are a lot of tutorials out there if you get stuck while building!

#10: Gravy Solutions

What they say: Gravy is the secret sauce to recurring revenue retention for businesses with subscriptions and memberships.

What we say: Anyone who has a subscription service or membership knows the runaround of failed payments, which is different than a cancellation. Gravy has taken a huge load off of our plate by offering incredible customer service to get payment information updated for our members whose cards expire each month. We genuinely don’t look at Gravy as a service, but an extension of our team!
