I was inspired by my entrepreneurial friend Daniel Irmler who runs ChurchHacks who recently shared a list of things he uses for work. I thought it would be good to list out the things that I use in my daily routine.
Here is a list of services I use for various workflows and business processes:
Feedly = news and blogs
Slack = docs and inner office chat
Trello = project and task management
Groove = support desk
TimeTrade = appointments
LastPass = password manager
HootSuite = scheduling social media
Adobe Spark iOS app = social media graphics
FreshBooks = invoicing
Zoom = video conferencing
MindMeister = brainstorming
Dropbox = file storage
MemberPress = reccuring revenue
WordPress = blogging
ScanBot = PDF scanner
Typeform = surveys
Hired a Designer = for design
Hired an Accountant = book keeping
I am always testing out new things, but most of the tools listed above are things that I have settled on and are pretty much rock solid solutions for each purpose.
Evernote continues to be an elusive tool. I have dabbled in using it a couple of times over the last decade or so, but I’ve never really figured out how to integrate it into my routine so that it really becomes a productivity turbo charge for me. If you personally use Evernote, please comment or reach out to me so that you might be able to persuade me or even give me a mini tutorial to get me kick started in the right direction.
It is always interesting to see what other people do and use. Feel free to copy paste my list above and then simply replace with what services you actually use for each task.
