in celebration of labor day here are some tools i use to help make working online and in the creative world easier.
first off, joel & leo from buffer are awesome and nice. when they come to dallas we are having coffee! haha. buffer allows you to tweet it up and buffer will automatically schedule your tweets out over time. very easy to use, and useful.
for my photography business i’ve used this service to create a short video explaining my pricing. with screenr you can capture your screen and do tutorials with a voiceover. whenever someone ask me about my pricing i send them this short video:
i love love google, and google reader is one of my favorite services from them. it’s a rss reader. if you consume a high level of online content managing your content is a must. instead of visiting tons of sites everything is all in one place. and as a blogger feedburner (another google service) is a must, keep track of people who are subscribing to your content. thumbs up to all the people who subscribe to my blog by rss, the number is inching closer to 100!
if you don’t know what rss is read up here about it.
if you have an ipad and don’t have flipboard downloaded…what are you thinking?! download it now and enjoy moments of bliss. it’s an app that pulls feeds from different sources, such as facebook, twitter, google reader, etc. and displays the content in the most beautiful way. and you just use your finger to flip through it all. amazing stuff.
i heart music and i heart spotify. i got this perk through klout (another great resource) but i think anyone can sign up for it now. you can listen to any kind of music you want anytime you want, just have to contend with a few music commercials in the free version. with the paid version you can take your music with you on your smartphone. when i work on the computer i listen to music…well, i listen to music…when i live! ;) my point is that i love music and spotify is awesome.
been using google notebooks for years and was relentless to transfer all of my notes over to evernote but a couple months ago i took the leap and spent a great deal of time transferring my google notebooks notes over to evernote. i believe it was worth it. keep track of all your little thoughts, and keep them neatly organized. i can take and make notes anywhere, it syncs all of my evernote apps (desktop, iphone, ipad, and online). do away with all those mad scientist scraps of papers. digitize and tag all your thoughts.
if you look into only one link on this list i encourage you to consider using google reader.
