Oct 28, 2016 | tools for creatives, weekly links

Hello there, dear friends! How was your week?

Mine was pretty busy, trying to schedule my tasks and my projects to fit them all in a 10 hour workday. 

Anyways I gathered a few links that really helped me since I started freelancing and working solo on different SEO and design projects. These websites are basically what I use regularly for my freelancing gigs but also for my clients.

1. I can’t work without having my Google Drive opened in my browser at all times. I use Google Sheets to keep track of different emails, I also use Google Docs for my basic SEO reports (which I transfer to my Evernote account – long story for another time) and I use Google Drive to keep an extra backup of my current work flow.

2. I would like to add one more Google product to this post. In the past I used to use the Sunrise app and it was amazing. Ever since the developers moved to Microsoft, they stopped updating the original app so I gave up on it as well. Enter Google Calendar. It’s great, it does the job and my weekly schedule usually looks like this:

3. A piece of software that I recommend my clients all the time is LinkInProfile. Link in Profile lets you add links to your Instagram images and send your followers to where you want them to go. It is such an effective tool to promote your blog posts or your products on instagram! The service is $9.99/month but if you run an ecommerce website and you promote individual products via instagram, this is the tool for you.

4. Last link for you guys – this one is for creatives who who want to learn more about the structure of their favorite websites. This tool is called BuiltWith Technology Profiler. BuiltWith is a web site profiler tool. Upon looking up a page, BuiltWith returns all the technologies it can find on the page. BuiltWith’s goal is to help developers, researchers and designers find out what technologies pages are using which may help them to decide what technologies to implement themselves.

Hope this week’s links are helpful to you!

Talk soon, xo!
