Hi Gwen! What is your favorite tool for business? (Productivity or Marketing)
Thank you for submitting a great question here! I am going to hand over my pen here to Stephanie, the expert in this space to advise.
Finding the right tools and software is essential in streamlining your processes and as a result becoming more efficient! For productivity, we recommend Asana – a project management tool that allows you to track progress on goals and stay updated on your team’s progress. This tool has especially proven essential to us as we pivoted to a fully remote workforce. Slack has also been a great tool to maintain flowing communication with the team! For social media marketing purposes, we love Sprout Social and HeyOrca. Both provide you with all the tools necessary to get content approved, schedule social posts in advance and access detailed reporting. We also use JazzHR to streamline our hiring process, and Insperity to manage all things HR and onboarding. Both platforms have made it easy to seamlessly onboard new team members after going remote. Finally, we recommend Electric for virtual IT support, they have been incredibly helpful in solving all types of IT challenges from a distance.
Hope this is helpful Ledrew!
