The life of an entrepreneur is undeniably hectic. At Centerco, we often see the struggles business owners face when juggling the responsibilities that come with running a business. That is why we wanted to provide this list of tools to make your life a bit easier.
Do you ever notice that built-in spelling and grammar tools are not catching all your mistakes when you write? Grammarly solves this problem by being your new, accurate built-in grammar check. This grammar tool comes as a Google Chrome plug-in. That means that every Facebook post, email, article, comment, etc. you type is checked by Grammarly. This tool is equipped with everything you could possibly need. It includes a thesaurus, explains why a sentence is structured incorrectly, offers suggestions and much more.
Project management is something that many struggle with as their business grows. With Asana, you can easily manage your team from one central location. This is especially helpful for those working with virtual teams.
Are you starting a business but feel lost in the paperwork and options? LegalZoom is a great resource for your legal needs. They have excellent customer support and provide the legal documents required for your business at a low cost.
Handling expenses can become a tedious job when you have a lot on your plate. Expensify makes expense reporting easy for you and your team. It has a mobile app and is cost efficient.
Getting feedback from your clients is extremely helpful in growing your business. You need to know what is working and what is not working to be successful. SurveyMonkey is a free tool that allows you to quickly and easily create surveys and get the valuable feedback you desire.
One of the best ways to stay on top of your social media game is to take time out of your week to schedule content. Buffer easily connects to your business’ social sites and allows you to create set times you want content to be shared on each site. Buffer comes with a link shortener, displays images from links you post and much more.
7. Google Drive
This is quite possibly the best resource an entrepreneur can use. Google drive allows you to upload and save just about any type of file you can imagine for free. The amount of space you get for free is unbeatable. Combining drive with other Google apps such as docs & sheets makes perfect sense for collaboration with your team.
Is an employee having trouble locating a file or completing a task on complicated software? Join.me is an easy way to share screens when working virtually. This site also comes with a variety of features to make meetings easy as pie. Did we mention it is free?
