    What tools like hootsuite do you use?

    I'm now on Buffer since I find it more appropriate for social media. I tried 2 SW in the past but I think Buffer seems to be the one I can lean on at the moment. However, if you are looking for more options, maybe this list could help. It's a Google spreadsheet of over 20 tools along with its...

    LinkedIn Invites

    At a first glance, you wouldn't really understand the buttons on Linkedin since they are quite different compared to other social networking sites. For instance, when you are editing a page (adding a member to become and admin) on Linkedin, you will not see a "Save" button, instead what appears...

    Anyone else use Trello?

    Actually, everything boils down to your preference and "wants". If all the features of the software are beneficial to you then go for it. Personally, I haven't used Trello but I heard it's a good software for project management. In my case though, I use Basecamp for over 2 years now since...

    Question Recommendation for Billing Clients

    I use Paypal to take payments from clients as it is the most trusted payment gateway ( I think) today. However, if there are problems with their service (PayPal) I use CC as my secondary option. But if you feel like you need more options other than using PayPal or other services out there, I...

    Buffer vs Hootsuite

    I've tried both software but I've had so much satisfaction with Buffer App. Although I'm not saying that Hootsuite is not a good one to try but I think it depends on how you want to use the app that makes you more satisfied with all its features.

    Has anyone used the website FreshBooks?

    Hi ekassistant! Freshbooks is actually a good software for invoicing but I'm not really sure if their 'time tracking' is quite as good as those programs that are meant only for time tracking. In my case, I've been using Time Doctor software for almost 2 years now and I would say that it's...

    Wireless Headsets

    Same here. I had a wireless headset before but I have used it for just a week. The battery life isn't much a benefit if you are using this kind of headset.
