When it comes to owning your own business, your to do list is normally a mile long and your brain is running a mile a minute. From client meetings to studio sessions, I feel like I am always on the go! Within the last few years, there have been a lot of amazing new tools that have come out that have made running my business a bit easier! Being able to automate things and have things be so accessible makes life so much easier. Here are a few of my favorite tools:
If you are a visual person, Trello is the perfect tool for you. It lets you lay out your to do list anyway that you want! I've always been someone who loves to write my to do list down on paper but Trello has made me a digital list lover. You can create different tasks and checklists and even check them off when you are done. If you have any employees, it's a great way to give them tasks to complete! You can always check on if they have completed the task or not by looking at their board. It's great for business and home life because you can create as many boards as needed. And best part, it's free!
Tave is a personal favorite of mine. You can create automated emails to clients which is great for welcome emails, questionnaires and more. Not only can you email straight from their but you can send invoices, create contracts, and create different different forms for clients. There are many similar sites available, but Tave is the one I have found to work best for me.
If you are on social media at all, I highly recommend checking out Later. Not only can you schedule Instagram, but you can also schedule posts for Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest! Being able to plan out your social media ahead of time lets you focus more on your clients each and everyday! I love batch working my social media for a few weeks on one day.
These are just a few of my favorite tools out there. There are so many other great tools for keeping you organized and automating different tasks in your business. What are you favorite tools?
