These days we spend most of our time on our phones. For work and play, your phone is where it all happens; you’re probably on your phone right now! But being connected and being on top of our game doesn’t have to drag us down. It’s important to prioritize and maintain a healthy balance of your time while effectively reaching your network marketing goals. The best way to do that is by leveraging the tech already at our fingertips!
There are millions of apps that promise to help you be more efficient but trying to pick the right ones can feel daunting. That’s why we’re doing the hard work for you! Here are a few of my favorite apps to make networking much easier so you can take back life… without sacrificing your business goals.
These Apps and Tools Will do the Heavy Lifting for You
Setting up your business to work efficiently takes effort, but it doesn’t have to look that way. Being able to work on the fly and minimize the amount of time spent on menial tasks are key to making your network marketing business shine.
If you can only download one app, choose Evernote! If you’re like me, your mind is running a mile a minute and ideas are always flowing. Evernote is the best way to capture your lightning when it strikes. This app keeps all your thoughts in an organized, easily searchable platform.
The best features of Evernote come in the labeling and categorizing aspects. You can easily keep your blog ideas separate from your dinner party planning notes or your ongoing list of hot new places for drinks. Get started with Evernote for free and upgrade to Pro or Premium based on your needs.
Now that you’ve captured your network marketing ideas with Evernote, it’s time to make them POP! It’s a competitive world, and people are out there trying to steal your thunder. If you’re posting bland, unprofessional looking pictures or videos, you could be losing potential sales. Canva will help you make simple drag-and-drop graphics that you can use all over social media, and even in your freebies, eBooks, or emails. Don’t let all the options overwhelm you, though. Start small and get a feel for what Canva offers before you really dive in.
Smart, stylish templates take the guesswork out of creating the perfect post, and with the numerous fonts available, you can choose the perfect look for your brand. You may be using Canva to increase your efficiency, but the true upside is not having to sacrificing style. All the handy options they provide allows you to remain consistent in content and message. I call that a huge win!
Being consistently present on social media and in your follower’s feeds is vitally important. It can be time consuming, though. Buffer is a great option to manage all your social media accounts from one site. See who is locked on your thread, determine what type of posts get your followers excited, and watch your potential customer base grow.
When you want to show up online as an ever-present social media guru, Buffer, is the app you need. Scheduled, cross-application updates put you in front of your followers while you’re spending time with your family or at the gym. Does your most recent blog post need some attention? Post it to all your accounts at once in Buffer, and with their helpful reminder settings, you’ll never feel disconnected.
Before you hit post, you should always be checking for typos! Imperfections can be charming and show that you’re a real person, but there’s a big difference between the occasional error and a post littered with misspellings and grammatical errors. With Grammarly, you don’t have to worry about spelling mistakes or incorrect grammar ever again.
Grammarly might not be new to you, especially if you wrote a lot of papers in college, but when was the last time you used it? It’s not just for students or full-timers in an office. It’s for everyone! The speed and ease-of-use alone justify adding it to your web browser. You might not be able to spell “bananas” without singing Hollaback Girl but only Grammarly needs to know that.

At the end of the day, we all want to be successful. The difference between someone who is handling it and someone who is frazzled is access to the right support.
