Whether your small business is running a blog or selling handmade jewelry on online, these apps are going to be a game-changer. All of them are available on both iOS and Android phones.
PLANN (Formerly Plan Your Gram)
PLANN is a great new app that allows you to curate and organize your Instagram feed .Not only can you move your pics around and really get a good idea how you want your feed to go, but you can schedule your posts within the app. It is an essential social media tool. If you have an Instagram account for your business (and you effin’ should!) then you need this asap.
Plann offers a free version and just recently became available on desktop. I like Plann because it has you look at the bigger picture when creating your IG strategy. You can research hashtag sets and schedule IG stories. Stats are great and you can reply to comments straight from the desktop.
It is a great tool to create stunning and clean designs that you can use for almost every social media channel you have. Plus it is super easy. Consistency is key in business branding and Canva makes it almost too easy for you. Seriously, you have no excuse.
It’s is free to download and use which is awesome but it is so worth the money to upgrade to a business account. You are able to do a hell of a lot more with a business account. You can save your images and resize them for Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook in seconds. You can store your branding colors and fonts so every image is consistent. You can also access your saved images on the app, and vice versa. Anything you create on the app saves to be accessed through their website.
A COLOR STORY
A Color Story is from the dream team behind A Beautiful Mess, so anything these ladies touch, turns to gold. Ultimately we want apps to make things easier for us and this photo editing one does just that.
Free to download, comes with some great filters already, but you can buy filter packs to add to your collection.
Spend less time waiting for files to sync and more time being productive. “Google Drive is a cross-platform app, so once you sign in you can use it across Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Linux. Creating or uploading a file to the service is simple, allowing users to create word documents, spreadsheets, slideshows, drawings, and more from third-party app integrations.”
Last but not least is Trello, the project management software. Trello makes it just a little bit easier to get a grasp on all the different projects and collaborations.
