Why I’m Not A Fan Of All-In-One Systems

Written by Samantha Pointer

On January 22, 2018

There are ton’s of new software popping up offering the glorious one stop shop for your entire business. You’ve seen them. They promise to handle your invoicing, billing, content, website, and on and on. Being a solopreneur this may be very tempting to get right away.

But STOP!

Before you shell out that monthly fee and start putting your information and trust in these systems I want you to think about a few things.

1. What is your business or companies long term goal?

You won’t always be a solopreneur so you want to make sure that you don’t get stuck with something that won’t grow with your business or that will keep you limited.

2. Think about your team members or future team members.

Do you really want to be sharing one login or worse paying for additional users on these platforms that will cost more in the long run? I wouldn’t.

3. What happens if they go out of business or hike up pricing?

At anytime these companies can close up shop, raise their price or change the direction of their business and offerings all together. And with that you are at THIER mercy. Why waste time or be in a position of panic if that happens.

I suggest instead to pick 3 to 5 tools to automate and run your business. I myself use 3 to 5 platforms. And I also use Zapier to make them all talk.

So before you jump on the all in one bandwagon make sure you really think about the long term game instead of instant short term gratification.
