Find and Use the Best Free Tools
When you have a small business you can delegate and distribute the work load among your employees.
When you are a solo entrepreneur you do not have any such luxury because of course, you have to do everything yourself. It kind of irks me when solo entrepreneurs act as though they had all the time in the world, and waste their time. These are some suggestions that can help overcome this problem.
1) Find the best free business tools you can and take advanatage of as many of them as you can.
Here is a website with over 40 free business tools and more.
2) Find tools that can automate mundane tasks such as your efforts on social media. Social Media can be a huge waste of time if you are not careful. For example, I am very active on LinkedIn with 16,000 1st level connections. (This represents better than the top 5% on LinkedIn). I also have a group on LinkedIn with 1500 members that is growing on a daily basis. Without some kind of automated method of contacting and inviting on LinkedIn I would have spent thousands of hours trying to accomplish this, but I now spend only 15-20 minutes per day. If you visit the following link you can find free tools to automate your social media activities.
You will notice it is the same link. There are both free social media software programs to automate your social media efforts as well as many free business tools. So what are you waiting for? Just use your cell phone number and you will be given a text message with a code to login.
Be smart and take advantage of these free tools. Be patient, this is a brand new site, and there are only 40 tools there now, but soon there will be over 100, and training as well.
Best of success in all your endeavors.
