Running a business is becoming somewhat easier and easier by the second. You can now hire staff online that works virtually, send invoices from your iPhone, and so much more. Making my business run smoother is something I am always trying to do. Here are some online tools that can help you grow your business while saving you time.
This is an online photo editor that you can do everything in one place versus going to multiple places. If you are familiar with Picnik that Google closed in 2012 you will be able to use this program with some ease. The online photo editor is a free tool to use and very similar to the other tools we shared in the Online DIY Graphic Design Tools article. Check out Ribbet.
I discovered Creative Market mid last year when I was looking for beautiful styled stock photography to use with my digital products. This is a small business owner goldmine. For awhile, I only shared it with two other people. Isn’t that what women do, we hoard our sources not wanting to share the good information. The great thing about this platform is, if you are creative you can list your items in the market place. If you are a consumer looking for fonts, photography, templates or more this is the market place to shop. Check out Creative Market.
Has been something I was aware of for a very long time. The premise of the tool is to unsubscribe you from newsletters, campaigns, and much more. Ones that you signed up for and the ones you never knew about. This is one of my favorite online tools to use. For some reason by mid year my inbox is full of emails I never signed up for. Check out unRoll Me.
Is a startup that launched to help users claim their spots on new social media platforms. It’s a badge of honor to have your exact user name when you join a platform. More and more platforms are launching each day and claiming your name or business name is getting tougher. With this app you can make sure when a new platform launches you are the first to know and claim your name too. Check out EarlyClaim.
Is a highly recommended SEO company that helps your company gain visibility online. They produce great content on their website to help give you insight on how SEO works for big and small companies. They specialize in several areas of SEO, such as technical SEO, User Experience search strategy, link-building, local search strategy, and international search strategy. Check out Portent.
States that they are a free, flexible, and visual way to organize anything with anyone. They truly do live up to the hype. It was a great way to help organize my business from emails with editors, graphic designs, and much more. Very simple to use. You create boards, add notes, photos and collaborate on it. Check out Trello.
Makes creating contracts and legal documents accessible to small business owners. This app is for the person who needs to draw up a quick legally binding document versus seeking out a lawyer and to do everything. They are adding new types of contracts daily. This happens to be one of my favorite apps and online tools. You can sign and send the contract all within the app. Check out Shake.
