Organise your Clients (or Team) with this Free Resource

Organise your Clients (or Team) with this Free Resource

Back in January 2012 I wrote Get Organised with this Free Resource. So today I decided I would write about that same resource, but from a slightly different angle. How you can organise your clients or team with Asana. I've been using Asana for some time now, and it's made my working days so much more productive. I go over the basics of Asana in my previous review of it, so if you don't know what Asana is and how it can help, then pop back and read that post first. As an entrepreneur who works with a number of different clients, sometimes it's very difficult to manage tasks effectively. Emails popping into my inbox 24/7, a never-ending stream of tasks to complete, and possibly all coming in to different email … [Read more...]

Free WordPress: The Benefits


Guest Post What’s so great about FREE WordPress? Not until very recently did I discover WordPress. I am a new writer and I wanted to get my work out there to the world and fast. With this in mind I was ecstatic to learn that not only is WordPress a wonderful piece of software, but also you can obtain it for absolutely nothing! However, there is so much more that meets the eye with this product and with this in mind I wanted to share the advantages of obtaining free WordPress for you and your business or blog. You can use your own Domain Name Unlike other publishing platforms where you can only use a sub-domain on their server, with WordPress you can use your own domain name as the software is hosted on your own … [Read more...]

Resource Review: SocialSafe What you post on your social media networks like Facebook and Twitter is not legally yours. At anytime these huge social media networks could close down and take everything with them, your photo's, your interactions with your friends, messages etc... Last year I came across SocialSafe and was really happy to be able to start backing up my social media networks. I started out small and just added my Facebook and Twitter profiles, but recently I have added my Google+, Pinterest, Facebook Pages, LinkedIn and my blog RSS feeds to SocialSafe. Each morning when I switch on my Mac it pops up and starts syncing with all the content I posted since the previous back-up. From the SocialSafe … [Read more...]

Review: TwentyTweet


4 out of 5 Stars★★★★ As you may know, I like my social media monitoring tools having written a few posts about different tools and websites I use in the past. TwentyTweet was something I had heard of but not tried before, so I thought I would give it a go and let you know how I got on. I have spent quite a bit of time this week going through the features, and from what I can gather it's a very good tool to analyse your competitors on Twitter. Here is the official text all about TwentyTweet: What is Twentytweet? Twentytweet is an analytic tool for twitter users, who wish to understand better the impact of their own twitter campaign strategy, compared to their competitors or friends. Twentytweet provides powerful … [Read more...]

The 5 Applications of Christmas (I can’t live without…)

The 5 Applications of Christmas (I can't live without...)

It's that time of year again, yes, Christmas is coming and being self-employed you have to try and juggle work around family life and celebrations and try to get things finished before taking time off work. This year, in my wisdom (not!) I decided to take a trip to the UK the week before Christmas to see family and friends. When I decided on this break I didn't really think about the consequences for my work. I am technically taking a week off and then Christmas, so I've been working really hard this week to get all client work finished and to ensure that I have lots of things in place for when I'm away. I decided that you may need some help too on how you can organise yourself before you take any time off, so I … [Read more...]
