Dubsado* is the hottest business tool in the freelance world right now. I get a LOT of questions about it. So in this video, I'm sharing what Dubsado is and how to use it.
If you're scratching your head, wondering what the heck Dubsado is then here's the lowdown:
Dubsado is an all-in-one business management tool that allows you to send contracts and invoices, handle project management, create questionnaires and other forms, manage bookkeeping, track your time, send and receive emails and SO much more... all from ONE app.
And guess what? It's only $35 a month. That's a suuuper sweet price for a tool that does SO much and saves you so much time.
(If you can’t afford Dubsado right now, I recommend sticking to free tools. My course, Organize & Automate, helps you streamline your business using free tools only.)
Watch the video below to see a quick and simple Dubsado* walkthrough! In the video, you'll see exactly what Dubsado looks like, how it works, and the features it includes.
If you're not a video lover then don't worry, I've got you covered. Read on to learn of the main Dubsado features...
A financial overview - This shows how much money you've made so far and how much your clients still owe.
Recents - This section shows recent activity.
Monthly calendar - This shows all the tasks you've scheduled for the week. You can sync Dubsado* with your Apple or Google calendar so it automatically imports your tasks!

A list of all jobs with the same features I mentioned above.
The invoices, contracts and forms you've sent to your clients.
Appointments you've scheduled with your clients.
Dubsado's bookkeeping is quite basic so if you need to do in-depth bookkeeping then I recommend using Quickbooks. Dubsado* syncs with Quickbooks and they will also be syncing with Wave Apps and Xero soon.
