My Favorite Apps for Running a Business
Do you currently run a business and find yourself feeling a little bit overwhelmed? After a TON of trial and error, I have rounded up the best apps for running a business with ease. Keep reading to see them below…
This is hands down my favorite app. I couldn’t do Instagram without it. It is game changing if you run your own business or do social media for a company. It schedules out your posts for you so you can plan them all, see what they look like on your feed, and then it will either notify you when it is time to post, or will auto post for you if you aren’t a crazy controlling person like I am. I love that I can see what my feed looks like and can write and save captions ahead of time if needed.
This is an app on your phone as well. I love that I can make story images from it, pinterest images, and so much more. It has so many different layouts that you can easily choose from and it is really user friendly when you get the hang of it. I love that I can make my graphics from anywhere that I am whether it is at home on the couch, watching Netflix in bed, or in the preschool pickup line.
This is the way I communicate with everyone on my team, it makes it so easy to communicate and to chat. I love that we can all listen to our messages when we have time to and we can go back and listen to messages if we need to also. It is the best thing ever.
I am obsessed with Lightroom, it is how I edit all my pictures with Emmy Lowe’s presets. I love that I can snap a picture really quick on my phone, edit it, and post it to my Instagram within just a few minutes. It has been game changing not only for my Instagram pictures but also any pictures that I take.
Stories edit is an app that you can download if you are a Planoly member. It lets you make the cutest story templates that not everyone has. It is crazy user friendly and allows you to change the colors and such to match your branding which I think is amazing!
Tailwind makes it really easy to schedule out your Pins for Pinterest and I love it from my computer. The app on my phone isn’t as easy to use as the computer but also let’s me check and make sure everything is scheduled right and I can add other pins as well if needed.
Trello is what organizes my entire business. It houses literally everything for every post, collaboration, etc. Each member of my team can comment and we can all stay on the same page together. I love that everything for my business is in one place and easy to find with how you can organize the boards on Trello.
If anyone in this day and age can live without Google Calendar then I want to know your secrets…Google Calendar is my sanity. THE END.
