We tend to work at a desk less today than we did 10 years ago. Which is awesome, but we have to create ways to keep the work flow progressing. This is where apps have made our lives easier, more efficient and better! Below are the apps that I use regularly to keep my business moving, educated and ahead of the curve.
This app makes your social media post quick, easy and they look fantastic! But that’s not all. This is a design platform for most of your marketing needs. It offers a drag-and-drop feature and layout to design, share and print business cards, logos, presentations, slicks and more!
Need a better way to communicate with your team? Slack is the answer. They offer a nice design for individual and group messages. You can add, workspaces for specific teams or projects, add attachments, etc… This is a great way for quick communications, updates and check ins.
If you are sending emails out for your company then mailchimp is a must. This is an easy to use, edit and send right from your phone. This app has made it easy to send email blasts out from a baseball practice, waiting for an oil change or anywhere else!
4. Google My Business:
If you want people to find you have to have a google listing. This is app helps you add photos, edit your listing and most importantly it notifies you when someone leaves you a review on google. When someone leaves a positive review you can thank them with a reply to the review and if someone leaves a negative review you can address it right away by writing directly to the review. No one wants an unaddressed negative review left for the world to see.
5. Google Primer:
This is gold! Primer is full of mini lessons in several areas of business. It’s great for all the times in the day when you are waiting or have a few minutes before your next meeting. As much as we’d like to know everything in business, we don’t. Primer helps you stay in the business know.
Of course these aren’t the only apps we use but there are the ones that we highly recommend when we sit down with a company. The goal is to work smart at all times! These apps certainly help with that!
