There are thousands of apps in the market today and sometimes it can be overwhelming just browsing through them. If you’re a business owner, we give you 5 cool apps that can help you with your business. Best of all, they are all for free.
So you’re thinking, why Facebook? What does that have to do with growing my business? A lot, I would say. If you haven’t used Facebook to promote your business, you are losing a lot of potential customers. Make a fan page of your company and spread the word. By having access to Facebook wherever you are, you can announce new products or campaigns to your clients as soon as they happen. You can make an announcement or give your clients an update any time of the day. The best thing is they can react immediately.
Like Facebook, you should take advantage of this social networking site to announce promos or new product launches. Use Twitter to remind your clients about sales happening in your stores.
If you want to try out a new product or service but are not sure if it’s right, ask for your clients’ suggestions. Just tweet and wait for comments to pour in. This way, you can avoid a major investment disaster.
As a business owner, you deal with a lot of files. If you are like most people who access these files on their iPhones, the Dropbox can give you some organizational help. Dropbox allows you to transfer content between your iPhone and your computer. It’s easy to use. You just dump files you want to sync to a folder in your computer. You can access them later or download them.
Free Skype calls, is there anything better? With Skype, you can talk to other people who are not using iPhone for free. You can talk to anyone anywhere in the world at a fraction of the cost of an IDD call. You can keep in touch with the office, with the suppliers and take conference calls while commuting.
5. Around Me
If your job entails a lot of travelling, you might find the Around Me app quite useful. It shows you the location of hotels nearby, gas stations, pharmacies, restaurants, etc. This app tells you where you are and where to access stuff. It relies on Google Maps so there are still some areas that can be improved but it’s a pretty good app to have when you’re in a new, unfamiliar place.
Not all business apps should be boring. Add a little bit of cool and a little bit of fun to your everyday work with these apps.
