In today’s solocast, I’m going to be talking about tech tools that will help you work smarter. There are so many tools that you can now access to make your business run more efficiently than ever before. I use a lot of the tools that we’ll be talking about today for my own business, and with the tech tools that I have at my fingertips I can’t imagine how I would get by from week to week.
In this solocast, I’m going to talk about eight of my personal favorite tech tools.
Some highlights include:
One of my favorites is an accounting tool called FreshBooks, an application that can help you track time, create invoices, make payments, report expenses, and more. I used it when my business was very small, and I’ve yet to outgrow its usefulness. (minute 1:00)
A business marketing platform that I love is Ontraport, a service that allows you to publish websites, manage email marketing campaigns, sell your products, and more. It’s been designed with entrepreneurs in mind. (minute 3:00)
Asana is a great tool for project management. We all know how quickly projects can become disorganized if we aren’t careful, and Asana is amazing for organization. (minute 6:00)
Do you spend too much time on social media? Do you feel unorganized? If you’re not yet using Hootsuite, you really should be. It allows you to post to all of your social media accounts at the same time, saving valuable time that you can spend elsewhere. (minute 9:00)
A service you can’t afford to live without is Dropbox. Uploading your files is safe and secure, and it’s smarter to not have them taking up space on your computer. Your computer will run faster if it’s not bogged down, and you’ll be prepared if your computer crashes. (minute 10:00)
