Everyone has heard about the cloud I'm sure. Even if you don't understand it, it's likely that you use it or tools that are within the cloud daily. I use HubSpot daily and I have for the past several years. HubSpot is sales and marketing software — actually a full platform — that helps me manage my online activities for my clients. These activities include website updates, social media creation and distribution, blogging and much more.
Recently I was reading the Forbes Cloud 100 list and discovered several other online tools that I can't live without.
I am all about to-do lists. But I'm even more about completing things on that list. Checking a box or crossing out a line gives me major satisfaction. I also love a good list to refer to when I have to perform something that I don’t do that often. It’s like a set of directions for me. I don’t know how many times a month I think, "Ah! We need a list for that!" Recently I was talking to a coworker about a client who's going to change their contract with us, which meant a change in the services we perform for them each month. We were spewing off all the things that needed to take place in the next 2 months. Just thinking of the tasks and figuring out who would do what was taking productive time away from other clients. So, we had that a-ha moment: we need a checklist for when clients shift from one set of services to another.
I get this question from clients on a regular basis. And by “regular basis” I mean … EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It’s a pretty simple fix that more often than not launches people into a panic because it’s kind of a big deal and they have no idea how to fix. Fear not, for I am Google Certified and I’m here to walk you through the Google Maps abyss.
