When shopping around for businesses that can help bring your brand to the next level, it’s important to know that they have the tools in place to ensure the entire process runs smoothly. At Kait Studios, we’ve worked to finesse our business structure so that we can bring our clients quality service. However, we want to share the love to other businesses alike, so today we are spilling our secrets.

Here are our 5 MUST HAVE Apps for your business:



Clickup is an all-in-one worksuite to help manage your team, projects and everything else you may need! They operate on a cloud-based model that works toward assisting you (and your team) in keeping emails organized, tracking goals, collaborating on documents, and so much more. They offer really cool features like activity streams, filtered searches, recurring tasks, app integrations, and an amazing way for everyone to work together. 

By using Clickup, nothing goes missed and our clients are kept happy-happy!



We’ve gushed about Planoly before, but there’s a lot to love about this little social media marketing app! Planoly makes it easy to plan and schedule your content across all social platforms, but it also links to a great application called Sellit that allows businesses to turn any social platform into an online storefront! Planoly is also super versatile for any and all business owners thanks to it’s cool features like IG Story customization tools, data analyzers, and link integration.

So if you’re a social guru, this app is going to be your best friend!



Dubsado does business differently. It aims to cut out busywork and help you build relationships with your clients, all while streamlining your workflow. We use Dubsado to create client intake forms that are easy and intuitive for new and returning customers. However, beyond effortless form building, Dubsado also allows up to track leads, create email workflows, take payment and more. 

The best part is, it’s super affordable and saves us so much time in the long run.



Not only does Stripe integrate with platforms like Amazon, Shopify, Instacart, Zoom, Google and more… Stripe brings businesses together by enabling online and in person retailers, marketers and service providers a way to accept and collect payment! They also focus on features like streamlined invoices, protecting your company against fraud, managing your money and more. They cater to businesses of all sizes and are there to offer the best support to businesses that are running on an online economy. 

So if online business is your jam, you aren’t going to want to pass over this app.



Do you like gifs, fun conversations and a space for team building… then quit slacking and download Slack. Slack is a conversational HQ where teamwork happens. Unlike email, slack allows you to make calls, share files and connect with additional applications that make your workflow easier. You can create conversational channels to not only manage your team, but also your clients and other companies. And Slack also allows you to see and search through your projects and conversations so everything is very easy to locate in a pinch.

So you’re in need of a comprehensive messaging tool to replace your current, all-over-the-place communication methods.

We hope these tools can help you out and make your work-life easier. Remember – it’s all about balance, and these apps will surely help you feel more in-control!
