Here’s a few great tools I couldn’t wait to share with you that I’ve fallen in love with.
Sure spell check will catch when you seriously screw up, but I’ve got a tool that shows when my sentences are too complex or when I’ve used passive voice. Check out Hemingway to make your writing bold and clear.
If you use a Mac and cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, etc., you need to check out Found. It’s what Spotlight should be but focuses on your email and cloud services. Plus it’s silly fast.
If your team is drowning in email, you need to find a task management system fast! We started with Producteev and then switched Asana recently. I’m thrilled with the amount of insight I get into each team member’s workload and accountability that the tool drives. I don’t spend hours asking people for updates and trying to remember tasks, a task management system does that for me.
If you use Gmail’s web interface, you need to check out Rapportive. Next to every email you receive, you’ll get the sender’s picture, location, and social media updates. Makes it super fast to connect with them through other channels or just see what they last tweeted.
