When you run your own business, every minute of the day is precious. Time equals money and this is why maximising productivity is so important. There are a few apps that have really helped us out, we thought we would share for those who may not have heard of them before!
This is a social media scheduling tool that allows you to plan and post content on up to 3 platforms for free. Unlike other scheduling apps, Buffer is simple to use and a fantastic way to stay on top of posting on your business social media channels.
Slack is a great way to communicate and send files to team members. You can create channels by team, project or clients. You can also direct message contacts or even video call. It’s a lot better than endless, irrelevant email threads!
Not a photoshop expert? Canva is perfect for quickly creating images with text, infographics or brochures. Especially handy if you are not ‘arty’ or skilled when it comes to graphic design.
There’s a time and a place for stock images. But sometimes when you’re a start up and you require a high quality photo, you simply don’t have the resources to get an original. On Unsplash you can get free unlicensed stock images. If you can’t find what you need on Unsplash, there’s another app called Pexels which is worth a browse as well.
Cloud-based storage is THE best. Access files from any computer, and have piece of mind that your docs are safe if you spill your morning coffee on your keyboard! With Google Drive you can store up to 15GB for free.
