Infographic: 10 Apps Every Small Business Owner Should Have
If you manage a small business, it’s a good idea to draw upon all the help you can get. No matter how self-confident you might feel, you can’t do it all on your own, so any assistance that can be acquired from human or technological sources should be accepted gladly. In this era of widespread smartphone usage, there are dozens of apps that can be of great use to a small business owner, helping them to manage everyday tasks more efficiently and easily.
Trying to select the best of the bunch is another matter, but some of this work has been done for you by All Finance Tax (http://allfinancetax.com/income-tax-return-service/), who created this infographic profiling 10 of the best apps for small business owners. Better still, the creator also happens to be a small business owner, so they are speaking to like-minded individuals with their recommendations. It includes some names that are familiar to people all over the world, such as Skype and PayPal, as well as some which may have slipped under the radar, like My Minutes and IFTTT (if this, then that). Indeed, we were especially taken by that last one. It’s an app that can use one program to automate actions in another. For example, you can automatically post all of your tweets to other social media profiles, or even switch off certain electrical items as soon as you set your Skype status to offline. Multi-tasking at its finest!
Another great feature of this infographic is that the apps are nicely divided into sub-categories based on the functions to which they are relevant, e.g. time management, project management, team communication. Of course, trying to include every singly managerial function into the one infographic is rather difficult; this one features a few of the more prominent functions that a small business owner carries out on a day-to-day basis.
If some of these apps aren’t already in your collection, be sure to add them without delay. Before long you’ll begin to wonder how you ever managed the business without them. Check out the full selection in the infographic below.
