Apps make life easier.

When you’re a one-man band, you need all the help you can get, so today I want to share with you 5 of my favourite FREE apps to help you to run your business…

1 – Trello

Trello is a virtual To Do list.
You can create ‘boards’ where you can list tasks to be completed, assign tasks to other people, set deadlines and add attachments. Boards can be shared with members of your team, or with clients, so everyone knows what is expected of them.

2 – Canva

Ahhh…my favourite app of all time.
Canva is a design app which allows you to easily create graphics for social media, flyers, posters, invitations…basically any document you can think of!
There is a paid version which gives you more options but with the free version, you get plenty of photos and graphics to choose from and can set your brand colours to quickly create branded items.

3 – Later

Later is a social media scheduling tool. Again, there is a paid version which gives you access to analytics and insights.
But, if you’re just looking for a simple scheduler, Later is a great option!
For those who like an aesthetic Instagram feed, you can preview, and click and drag your posts around until you get a beautiful grid!

4 – Google Drive

Google Drive is fab for storing documents and photos. You can create documents (using Google doc), spreadsheets (Google Sheets), presentations (Google Slides) and forms (Google Forms) and store and share them all from Google Drive.
Files and folders can be made private or can be shared with other members of your team, or even with clients.

5 – Hubspot

Hubspot is a great CRM to store contacts, create landing pages, set tasks to follow up potential clients, track deals…the list goes on!
The free version is perfect for anyone just starting up in business who wants to keep their leads and sales organised and in one place.

So, there you have it! 5 of my favourite free apps to help you to run your business.
