Apps That Will Save You Time And Money In 2019
Happy New Year! The first quarter of 2019 is here and it’s time to get things under control before it’s too late.
Thought I’d start 2019 off and let you know what apps can save you time and money this year.
Social Media Scheduler- Social Report is a scheduler that you can use to schedule all of your posts for social media in one place. It’s $49 a month and it’s worth every penny. I even scheduled my email blasts for MailChimp through Social Report. Some of the platforms that you can post to and not have any problems: Facebook (Pages and Groups), Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Business, Pinterest, Yelp, Etsy, Shopify, Blogger, Etc. I LOVE THIS SCHEDULER!! You can connect a Google Drive or Dropbox folder with all of your content so that way you don’t have to go all over the place searching for content.
Content Creation- These apps have saved me so much time in just the past year. I was able to create content effortlessly. Here are some free Apps: PicsArt, Spark Post, Quik, Canva, PowToon (www.powtoon.com), and PowerPoint. Yes, PowerPoint! I created videos in PowerPoint for Instagram it’s not as hard as it may seem. Just have to play around with things.
Invoice/Payment- PayPal and And Co are the only 2 services I use that are free when needing to send invoices and receive payments. I also use Square but I mainly use Square on my website when clients purchase packages directly from my website.
Grammarly- This app is perfect for when you have to send emails on the go. It corrects your grammar and makes sure that there are no writing errors. It’s free and there is even an extension to add to Chrome to help you there as well.
Timer App- Every phone comes with a timer now. Set a timer to remind you daily to check your emails and notifications on apps. A lot of us leave our notifications on and respond to every notification as they come in. That takes away from your overall productivity. Set a time of the day that you will respond to: Text messages, Emails, Social Media, etc. This will enhance your life in so many ways.
The only paid one is Social Report but there are other schedulers out there that have free trials or the basic level is free. Learn how to disconnect and be unavailable to make sure that you’re giving your business the focus it deserves.
