I often recommend tools that help me run my business efficiently to my clients and to other people I meet. My top five are my favourite tools that I use most regularly in my business (and wouldn’t be without). I use them daily (and multiple times per day in some instances)
There are free versions of some of them and others are very reasonably priced for what they allow you to do.
- Bit.ly shortens links
- Snag It for taking screenshots and recording videos
- Evernote for note taking and organizing – basically replaces sticky notes and a lot more!
- Hootsuite for managing and scheduling social media
- FreeAgent for sending invoices to clients and keeping bills and expenses and you can also submit your UK tax return
I will do a separate, detailed blog post for each tool showing you how to use it.
My number one tool is
Essential for shortening links for sharing articles and posts online. It’s free to use and allows you to see how popular your links are.
