Fill In The Gaps With Apps

Freelancers are basically solopreneurs. Like all entrepreneurs, freelancers need to run their little company as efficiently and effectively as possible or work dries up. Most freelancers work from home and don’t have access to the type of resources available at a larger company; like an accounting department, tech support, operation, communications or human resources. Instead freelancers often turn to technology to help them around these obstacles. There are many apps that help freelancers fill in the resource and skills gaps they need in order to provide services that are at the same level of an established company.

Top 8 We Can’t Live Without

We have compiled a list of 8 apps that help freelancers run a professional service:

1.Evernote. So versatile, so helpful. There are numerous ways evernote can be used to help freelancers in many different industries. From planning blogs, to collecting research, Evernote has a plethora of free features that are cloud based.

"Capture a note once, and it’s instantly available on all your devices. Never worry about where you saved something because it’s in Evernote, and Evernote is wherever you are.”

2.GSuite. GSuite refers to the myriad of Google’s intelligent apps; including Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts, Chat etc. With Google Pay and a host of other Google apps, you can build an entire small business using Google apps alone. It has done tremendous things to help freelancers communicate with their clients in a professional manner all for free.

3.Harvest. A time tracker and invoicing tool. Both very important for freelancers. Although not free it helps kick your professionalism up a notch.

4.Freshbooks. Another expense keeper, freshbooks is like an accounting department in your pocket and very easy to use.

5.Dayboard. One of the hardest things for freelancers is actually staying focused. The best part is that it has a Chrome extension that helps you keep your to do list front and center.

6.Time Doctor.Time tracking with screenshots, web and app usage monitoring. It measures keyboard activity, mouse movement, and websites visited alongside time tracking. Perfect for keeping you focused and accountable.

7.Trello.Many freelance jobs have some sort of creative element, and Trello allows you to keep all the elements organized and syncs with a number of different platforms from Google Drive to IOS.

8.Bonsai. This one every freelancer should know about. It is made for freelancers and takes care of one of the most important parts, the contract. It helps you take care of the legal aspects of writing your contract, invoicing and sending out payment reminders so that you can have peace of mind.
