Running a service-based business? Doing it alone, or with a small team? WorkWeek is the extra hand you've been looking for.
With WorkWeek you'll spend less time focusing on paperwork and more time growing and running your business.
Who is WorkWeek for?
Most businesses fall into two categories: they either sell things or do things. If you do things—be it house-cleaning, plumbing, tutoring, or painting—you're a service-based business. And because WorkWeek is purpose-built to help you run and grow a service-based small or microbusiness, it's meant just for you.
We really care about the small shops, the family-run service providers, the mom-and-pops of America. You may not even know just how many of you are out there.
A microbusiness is a special kind of small business that typically has no payroll, no employees, and is owned and operated by just one or two people.
Take note: There are more than 24 million microbusinesses in America, and the number keeps on growing. Does that sound like you? Boy, are you in the right place.
I'm a small business, but not that small
We have you covered. WorkWeek is software built for all small businesses. We just have a special place in our heart for the micros out there, who have been left behind by other tools for way too long. Rest assured, we have the tools you need to make running a small business with a partner, small team, or a handful of employees much easier.
Okay, this sounds like me, but my business does a special thing ...
Here's a list of just a few of the types of folks that use WorkWeek every day to manage their jobs and get paid for their work.

What can WorkWeek do for me?
Running a small or microbusiness is hard. We come from families of small business owners, and have spent years working in and with small, local businesses—print shops, remodelers, landscapers, cleaners, bookstores, coffee shops, and more. While every small businesses tackles unique problems that only it can solve, much of the headache everyone deals with is the same. You want to find work, get it done, and get paid on time. WorkWeek was built to help you spend less time worrying about how to run your business, so you can spend more time growing your business.
By now, most folks expect businesses of all sizes to have a website. It's become part of what people think makes a business look professional. But how do you tackle that when it's not what you do?. Traditionally, you'd hire someone to design a site (or maybe get your nephew to do it). Now, more than ever, small business owners like you find a service that lets them use a template to build web pages. The problem with all of these options is there's a lot to learn in just getting a website setup on your own—and there's even more involved in keeping it up-to-date so it's valuable for your customers.
WorkWeek takes care of your website for you. It's a "Set it and Forget it" kinda deal. You just do your jobs, and call it a day.
We give you a website that stays up-to-date automatically as you do your jobs. When customers give you positive feedback, we'll show it on your website. When you do jobs, they show up on a service map so potential customers can see that you work where they are. If you take pictures of your jobs, we help you share them on your website, as well as Instagram and other social media.
A website can help you get jobs and make you look professional, but getting the job done is where WorkWeek really shines. Once you create a job, WorkWeek gives you the tools you need to stay on top of things and get jobs done.
Schedule an appointment
No more keeping up with a day planner filled with chicken scratch notes that only you can read. WorkWeek includes some great, easy-to-use scheduling tools that help you make appointments and see exactly what you need to do today. Just schedule an appointment for a job, and we'll take care of letting your customers know when they can expect to see you. We'll even help your customers let you know if they can't make an appointment and need to reschedule.
Getting paid online, on-time
It's a fact of life that most people carry cash and use checks less often these days. Expecting your customers to always pay in cash puts a burden on them to go to the bank to get enough money to pay for your work before you ever show up to do the work. Accepting checks places you at risk of dealing with a bad check. We make it easy for your customers to pay you online with their credit cards, and see that money deposited into your bank account in just a couple days.
There are even more helpful tools waiting for you at WorkWeek. From creating estimates and invoices, to tracking notes about the progress of a job, to mapping out your jobs so you know where you're going (and so customers know you work in their area), we've made building, running, and growing your service-based business easier than anything you've tried.
WorkWeek is there helping you the entire way, from taking on a new job to getting paid on time.
The key to finding work as a small and microbusiness owner is to make sure people know you are there so they can find you when they need you. This is where marketing comes in.
Starting out, if you're like most small business owners, you're going to rely heavily on word-of-mouth from friends, family, and others you may know who can recommend you to people who are looking for the services you provide. Once you've done a few jobs, however, you'll have a customer list and a selection of work you can talk about to help spread the word. WorkWeek helps you reach out to past customers to offer promos, discounts, and reminders for repeat service (if you do that sort of work). This can really help during slow seasons, and also helps you maintain a good relationship with your customers. It can even help you get referrals that will grow your business.
As you get into the swing of running your business and doing jobs, you're going to start looking at growing your business. This is where learning all you can about marketing, and having solid help along the way, is going to really help you out. We've got some great guides coming to help you better understand advertising of all sorts--print, billboards, business cards, online ads, and more.
Logos, business cards, shirts, and more
One of the most immediate and frequent challenges a new small business faces is establishing and communicating a professional image.
WorkWeek takes all the hassle out of making your small business looks as professional as the big guys.
We've partnered with some great folks to help give you that professional touch. We want to make sure that if you don't have a company logo or you're just looking to update an existing logo, we can help, and it's all handled online with a smooth process. The same goes for business cards, flyers, t-shirts, and any other needs you have for marketing materials and office supplies. We'll even help you figure out what kind of marketing and image needs you have, removing all the guesswork in what helps make your business look professional, and helping you save money by avoiding unnecessary spending.
