In business, organization is a must! Unfortunately, not all of us are so inclined; in fact, many of us lack some of the organizational skills needed to be as productive as possible. There are some really great tools and platforms out there though that can help you significantly streamline operations and just create a more organized working environment overall.
Below are our top five recommendations for organizational tools to get your business running more smoothly and effectively:
Trello: As far as project management, Trello really can't be beaten. Use it to organize your to-do list. By creating cards, you can keep track of which tasks have been done, need to be done, or are in process. Everyone in your office has access to space and thus you have a much easier time of keeping your team on task.
Wordpress: Websites did right. With an array of themes and plug-ins available, Wordpress makes it easy to keep your site and blog updated and looking sharp.
Slack: A very comprehensive chat tool for businesses, Slack, like Trello, also allows you to keep projects organized, share files and even make video calls.
MailChimp: When it comes to email marketing, MailChimp is most definitely the way to go. It's really designed to let businesses manage their subscribers and the emails that get sent out. There is a free option as well as a number of package plans.
