7 essential apps that make running a small business look effortless

Evernote writing and organising app

  1. Evernote – A handy tool that allows you to organise online articles, blogs and content.

Social media scheduling app

  1. Hootsuite – It’s been around for years, but Hootsuite remains one of the best out there for managing multiple social media accounts. Instant access to multiple accounts across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Foursquare can save you an endless amount of time and with Hootsuite Analytics, measuring the success of your social media content has never been easier.  Write a post, let the app know which channels you want to post to and hit send!




  1. Mint – One of the original and best-known personal finance sites, Mint still manages to stay ahead of the competition with its engaging user experience. Of course what has attracted users to Mint for years has been the ability to gather all your financial accounts in a single place and monitor your financial health. This luxury extends to include business accounts as well.



Financial app

  1. BillGuard – This app does a lot of the nice things that the Mint app does, except it specializes in something important to all small businesses: fraud.

 2Do List making app

  1. 2Do– To do lists are ten a penny on apps stores, many paid and many free but 2Do offers an optimal balance of features and versatility. The user interface may look dated (well, it is), but according to the developers there’s an overhaul in the pipeline and from their screenshots it looks awesome. 2Do allows you to create alerts, tag items, set due dates and above all schedule your busy life. If, however, you want a very simple and uncluttered list-making app then check out Clear.



Event organising app

  1. Eventbrite -If your company offers seminars, workshops or even teaching then Eventbrite should already be on your list of event marketing tools. The website easily allows the user to setup an event, take payments and even helps with promoting it. Eventbrite’s seamless integration with MailChimp means that you’re even able to distribute mass email to your subscribers. Events, whether free or paid, allow you to open yourself up to your surrounding community so it should always be a part of your total marketing plan.
