I'm always interested in awesome (time saving) apps that other business owners are using, so today I thought I'd share with you a couple of my favorites!
1. Pages- This app gives you a shortcut directly to your businesses’ Facebook Page. You can quickly check notifications, respond to messages, pre-schedule posts, and see how well your ads are performing (without getting distracted by your newsfeed)! I use this multiple times a day!
2. Groups- If you’re like me, you are in many Facebook groups (and many you manage a few, too!). This app allows you to easily check on just your groups and the recent activity on every post (SUPER helpful if you’re the Admin!). Use this shortcut to get to your favorite groups (your favorites can be sorted to be seen at the very top). Not-so-favorite groups (like Garage Sale sites) can be hidden in your Newsfeed, but you can pop into this app and catch up quickly on everything you missed!
3. Evernote- I use this app every day, multiple times a day. I can easily search for my favorite book lists, resumes submitted via email (you’ll receive an Evernote email address which means you can send info to Evernote by just forwarding it from your inbox) with the notes you made during interviews, shared notebooks with your staff so you’re always in-the-know, favorite recipes, and user names and passwords! Hands down my favorite way to stay organized!
4. Our Groceries- My husband and I could not live without this app! Forget the grocery list in the kitchen or wandering around the store aimlessly. If I’m out and about or in my office and my kids tell me they’re out of toothpaste, I can quickly add it to the list. When I use up the last of the mayo when making supper, I quickly add it to my app, since my phone is always on me. If my husband is the one who runs to Target, he consults the list and grabs whatever was added by me! (Or vice versa.) Our apps are synchronized so we both have access to the list wherever we go!
Our team LOVES using Todoist to share tasks and sequences for various projects. You can assigns pieces of the project to various team members and get alerts when they are due or done.
This is totally just a fun app, but I love seeing pictures and posts from the last several years. I look at Timehop every morning and it's always fun to see what I was doing last year or 3 years ago!
What apps do you love? I can't wait to hear!
