Are you looking for productivity apps that will free up your time?

In recent months I’ve been recommended some really cool free sites that will make any business owner a happy camper.

 

EMAIL OVERWHELM?
Are you like me in that you get way too many emails? Adding to that you may have multiple emails and that’s when it’s easy to get to miss the emails that matter. What to do? Get this free app UNROLL ME and start breathing. You have the option to select what emails you receive directly to your inbox and which ones you wish to include in the daily digest, and you can adjust that any time. In my case, I now get 1 email per day instead of the 50+ and with that a peace of mind (thank you Jacq for this one).

 

ONLINE IMAGE SIZE OPTIMIZATION
Do you work with online images and struggle with sizing them correctly? Trick #1 is to make the image double the size of what the recommended field is, for example, the image box is 100x100 px, you make the image 200x200 with a 72dpi resolution and now have an image that will be crisp and clear on retina screens.

I recently learned that the ideal image size for online images is really 100-300 kb, using the trick above there is one more step you can take to minimize the image without losing quality. Go to KRAKEN and try their free service (for images smaller than 1 MB), drag and drop your images and see them shrink as much as possible without losing quality. This is a really cool app.

And if you’re looking for royalty-free and free images and haven’t heard of UNSPLASH you’re in for a treat. I’ve used images from this site for a couple of years when I don’t have the images myself. Amazing pictures are shared on all kinds of topics. Check it out.

After taking the above steps to optimize my images my website loads much faster and with that more people hopefully stay on the site and browse it, instead of clicking on to the next. As many of you know we have 6-10 seconds (max) to make a first impression online so load times count!

 

SOCIAL MEDIA BLOG POSTS
Do you blog and want to be more visible on social media but simply never get to it? If so, check out MISSINGLTR. What’s so cool with this program is that they pull quotes from your post and create a campaign that is spread out throughout the year. No more trying to figure out that you don’t replicate your posts. There’s a free version that offers two campaigns on one platform and paid options for more campaigns and social media platforms.

 

Do you have some fun apps to share that save time and increase your productivity? Then please share below in the comments section.

 

Have an awesome day!

Guest on Unchained with Becky

Guest on Unchained with Becky

Earlier this summer I was invited to be a guest on my friend Becky’s show “Unchained with Becky” on A2zen.fm (now called “Inspired Choice Network”). The topic of the day was about having more fun, in other words, “Stop being so darned serious”. Wow, has this been an intensely productive summer or what?

Check it out if it speaks to you! I personally love the invitation Becky is in this world, the conversation topics and content that she offers on her show. You can also subscribe to the podcast in iTunes.

Guest on the Erica Glessing Show

Guest on the Erica Glessing Show

Last week I was a guest on The Erica Glessing Show and had a fun chat with Erica Glessing on her podcast show. We had so much fun and one thing that got created out of this call was an invitation to write a chapter in a new book, which I accepted, that is being published soon and I finished writing my chapter today! Today I am reminded of all the fun that gets created from having fun once again.

We’re talking about the nobility of poverty, money, living large, what luxury is and more.
