When you’re in business, you know how tough it can be sometimes. You’re required to juggle work, accounting, marketing and all other things all at the same time and squeeze it within the day hoping for good results. The thing about multitasking is that in most cases, it doesn’t always pan out according to plan; there are always tasks that are overlooked and forgotten. Lucky for us, in today’s digital era, business apps make our lives a lot easier. We don’t need to hire a secretary anymore to do the planning and reminding. With these apps, you can plan, create, remind and communicate with just a few clicks. Here are some of the most helpful business apps every entrepreneur needs to know about.
1. Camera+(on iTunes) and Camera Zoom FX (Android)
A great camera application is essential in marketing. Our suggestion? Download Camera+ and Camera Zoom so you can take high quality photos for your social media pages and your blog. It doesn’t take a journalist to know the importance of having great images. Remember that people are easily attracted to good imagery, as a businessperson, you need to keep this in mind. This app offers a wide range of filters, frames, effects and cropping features so you can improve the look of your photos. The Camera+ app is compatible with iPhone while Camera ZOOM FX is compatible with Android.
2. Adobe Photoshop Touch
Not all photos are ready to be released; most of them require professional editing. Our suggestion is you download Adobe Photoshop Touch. It’s an amazing and brilliant app that offers incredible features. It’s also very user-friendly too so it’s not that overwhelming. They have this special feature called Scribble where you can actually remove a background on an image and replace it with a different background or you can even make it transparent. If this isn’t amazing, we don’t know what is. It comes with a price but if you are serious about your business then you’ll see this as a worthwhile investment.
Skype is old school but even though it has been around for a while, not many know about how cool this app is. Skype is a great tool when conducting meetings, contacting clients and discussing important business matters with mentors and partners. And the best part about it is that it’s absolutely free! You don’t need to spend cash to be able to take advantage of this app. All you need to do is to download it.
GoToMeeting is a web-conferencing app developed by Cintrix. This app allows users to conduct business meetings online. Wherever you are in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection, you can join any business meeting you want. And if you want to cancel, there’s a feature that allows you to conveniently reschedule a meeting.
This is a very helpful app as it allows you to work on a Word document in your iPad as if you’re typing from the keyboard of your computer. You can access files from Dropbox, Google Drive or SkyDrive anytime and them save them right back in their original folder. Before, editing was impossible and I was only given access to read it. With this app, you can edit all you want.
These amazing apps will without doubt improve your productivity and your sales. We know because our Brisbane marketing consultants use them with great success!
