Last month I wrote about productivity tips for small businesses and I wanted to dive in a little deeper and help you with some tips on how your can use apps to help improve your productivity withing your business, and automate some parts of it.
There are so many different ways to go about running a business today. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting your online business or looking into getting one set up, even if you’ve got your business up and running already, it can still be so overwhelming with the amount of information available online.
I know from experience that it can be hard to switch platforms or try to set up a new app or tool within your business that has a different system to what you’re used to using. You might end up not liking the interface, or find something small that just really, really bugs you.
Why you’ll want to use apps:
Apps can help you save time, money and a little bit of your sanity when you’re running your business. They can help you do less work, faster.
Where & how you can save time with apps in your business:
There are almost endless ways you can save time with apps to help you with your spelling & grammar, to convert speech to text, to create your own “short-hand” on your computer, to eliminate writing distractions, even to do the writing for you. There are apps to help you with your focus, to save notes, even to stop you using your social media! There’s amazing team management and business systemisation apps, as well as communication, planning and scheduling apps. When it comes to social media, you can easily end up wasting so much time, so (of course) there are apps to help you schedule your social media and create content faster. Even digital marketplaces can help you out with templates, graphics, and stock photos.
If you’re now convinced that you need to get some apps in your life… I’ve made something just for you! I’ve compiled a list of my favourite apps that I highly recommend, most of them I use myself, and if not, it’s because I’ve added some similar apps to the list for you to check out and decide for yourself which is going to work best for your business. I use apps in my business on a daily basis, a lot of them are free, super easy to learn and use in your business and will save you so much time and effort. Sign up below to get the list.
