I was speaking with a client the other day, and we were discussing blog posts and how to keep track of all of our posts and what we’ve written. I was telling her about an IFTTT recipe I use to send every new blog post to Evernote. Which started me thinking about IFTTT in general.
It’s been a while, so I thought it was high time I wrote another post about how to get more out of your work day… aka: how to be more productive. And since I think we can all agree social media eats more of an online marketer’s productive working time than any other activity, let’s focus on that.
Working from home comes with great rewards: flexible hours, zero commute, and complete freedom over our own schedule.
But, the work-at-home arrangement also comes with a few challenges: inability to leave work behind at the end of the day, temptation to do housework during business hours, and a constant struggle to achieve work/life balance.
How many balls are you juggling right now? Never mind the things going on in your personal life. I’m talking about work commitments. The day-to-day things that happen in your business to keep clients happy and things running smoothly?
Back in 2012, Hubspot reported that “there are 3.4 million emails sent every second.” That was 4+ years ago, I can only imagine how many emails are sent ever second now.
After viewing my Inbox post on Black Friday, Cyber Monday and then Green Monday, I can totally believe that.
Email and inbox clutter is something many business professionals struggle with on a daily basis, so I’m always interested when I see an app or program that claims to tame our email inboxes … especially when I see others commenting about how much they like a particular app or program. SaneBox is one of those programs!
Gmail initiated their new filtering system – priority email, social and promotional, but a lot of people didn’t like it, and it didn’t really help; so many of us still ended up with inboxes that look like the Wild Wild West. The idea behind SaneBox is to prioritize important emails and summarize the rest in an effort to save us from the drowning feeling we get every time we open our email inbox.
