At a recent networking event I was asked about what my favourite tools of the trade are. In the interests of sharing I’ve detailed five free resources below. They save time, money and sanity!
Register for your daily or weekly digest of cutting edge cool. ProductHunt rounds up the best new products, mobile apps, websites and tech creations on a daily basis. Although it’s aimed at product-loving geeks, it still keeps the average tech-simpleton, like me, updated.
A genius of an app for turning your photos into scans. Simply download the app, take a photo with your phone and it’s converted into a document. The digitised document can be emailed or shared using one of the many integrated apps. Expenses are made easy using GeniusScan combined with Expensify.
Keeping on top of your inbox and shortening your to-do-list tend to be tall orders, however this email reminder service is a big help. You can set a specific time for following up and then forget about it!
For example, you’re waiting for a client’s decision which they’ll make in 2 weeks. You can reply to them and add firstname.lastname@example.org in the BCC field. On 21 May you’ll receive an email with the email chain attached, reminding you of what’s been discussed so far.
I expect most of you are aware of Canva, if not let me introduce you. This handy site enables you to create useful graphics for social media purposes. There are standard size options for Pinterest images, Facebook covers, Twitter headers, etc. Tutorials help even the least creative types produce amazing designs.
A brilliant resource full of beautiful hi-res photos, all free from royalties and restrictions. When you’re on a tight budget sourcing images for social media is a challenge. Hey presto, this site takes that headache away!
