Running a small business isn't easy. Luckily, there are plenty of tools that can help your office life to run much more smoothly. The trick is just knowing what those tools are.
That's why I've compiled this list of essential tools that any and every small business needs. Oh yeah, and did I mention that these tools are free to start? Talk about getting the most bang for your buck!
A business is successful when everyone is on the same page. How do you get on the same page? With calendar and organization apps of course!
Take a look at Google Calendar. It has become the standard for Web calendars because it allows you to share any event with co-workers, employees, friends and family, making scheduling events with co-workers a breeze.
You can manage your calendar on any gadget, as well. Unlike other calendars, you’re not locked down to your email program or a website.
Now, I understand that not all employees and co-workers will have a Google account. That's not a problem. Google Calendar allows you to import events from other popular Web calendars and apps.
Project management is by no means easy, and the folks over at Basecamp know that. That's why they created a service to help project managers get everything organized and to get everyone on board and on the same page.
