There are so many free resources business owners can use to get an edge. We make use of many of these tools around the Projext X office every day, and we’re always ready to discover more. These are a few of our favorite valuable resources that are available at the touch of a button:
• Evernote: This is basically a digital file cabinet, and it’s one of the most popular apps in our workspace. Evernote allows us to take and organize notes, make easy to-do lists, and save our favorite websites. It’s almost like a second brain, loaded up with all kinds of thoughts, web clippings, and fresh ideas.
• Google Alerts: These are great for keeping an eye on what people are saying about your business online. You can set up alerts for any keywords, which makes Google Alerts an ideal tracking tool. We monitor Projext X’s online reputation as well as various trending industry topics.
