With the abundance of productivity tools available, it’s easy to get confused and end up with too many apps for many related tasks. If you want one centralized app that helps you to remember everything you need, from to-do lists to images of your business, and makes it easy to search for these notes, then you should check out Evernote.
Evernote offers subscription plans for personal and business users but you can get by on a free account just fine. If you feel like it’s greatly improving your efficiency then you should definitely upgrade to get the perks (offline viewing on mobile, higher monthly upload limit and more).
Here’s how Evernote can help you manage your business:
1. Have notebooks for everything you need.
It’s important to stay organized when handling a small business. With Evernote, you can create notebooks for categories like clients, ideas, receipts, to-do’s and anything else your business needs. You won’t have to go through physical notebooks that run the risk of being lost, changed or destroyed!
2. Research and find your notes efficiently.
Entrepreneurs are constantly researching and learning about their industry to help their business stay current. With Evernote, it’s easy to create notes filled with related text, images, charts and other objects and collect them under specific notebooks. It’s easy to search for them using tags that you add to these notes and it saves you a lot of time compared to saving them in separate documents on your computer.
3. Saving information online is as easy as using Evernote Web Clipper.
It can be a bit of a hassle to save information found on the web, like blog posts, reviews or images. Using Evernote Web Clipper, it’s easy to clip and save them under your notebooks.
4. Share notebooks with your team for efficiency.
If you have a lot of meetings or need to inform your team of company news and updates, inviting them to a shared notebook is a great way to keep them in the loop, ask for feedback and make sure they have the latest information.
