Why you should use these free tools starting today! There are apps and tools that just add clutter or, you have been told they are useful but all they do is slow you down.
These three free tools are important to me. They speed up what I am doing in an efficient manner.
Notepad: a very basic text editor that I use to “clean” text from code before pasting it into WordPress. Guest bloggers might use a different text editor or a different version of the same editor. Take a (credited) quote from an article and it might include some coding. I copy & paste into notepad et voilà! Clean of all coding and ready to work seamlessly with WordPress!
Camscanner: if you download one app on your phone this should be it! Camscanner makes instant PDF files from anything. The app takes a photograph. Then it makes sure that the object is centered and asks you to approve the image. The image is converted to PDF and it is ready for you to use. You can upload it later on your computer in Adobe Acrobat and save the picture in jpg format as well. If needed, I use Adobe Photoshop for cropping, etc.
Smore: this one is courtesy of Victoria Moffatt. Victoria pointed out that some services I have are better communicated in a flyer. Her company uses Smore as well. I tried it and am very happy with the results. Smore is easy to use. They have a whole range of templates and colours to make brochures. After you get 30 views the analytics become available. Smore has so many templates and colours that you can tailor each service to personalize your online brochures. Save it and attach it to email messages to promote your business tactfully.
