7 Must Have Apps Both Personally And Professionally
The Remote Control of Life
Your phone is your life — you use it for everything from your Social Media consumption to your Camera to your primary email outlet. But it could also be so much more than that, if only you have the proper tools in your utility belt. So be sure to add these apps to your arsenal.
If you really think about it. Your smart phone is the remote control of life nowadays. What are most people doing when they have a spare moment. If it’s in a line up at the coffee shop or when a commercial comes on their tv, and most of the time even while they are watching their favourite shows. Most people at this point are on their phones all the time.
So let’s talk about that for a second. If most people are on their phones, doesn’t it make sense that as a Realtor or Entrepreneur you should be focused on making the best of it. That’s where the world is going. Your newspaper and tv ads are marketing dollars being thrown in the garbage. It’s now time to focus on being on the go and using your phone as it’s now meant. That’s to be your computer on the go. You need it to manage your notes and draft your blogs, vlogs and marketing content.
I’ve put together a list of the most useful apps every modern Realtor, Entrepreneur and Anyone should have on their phone.
- Facebook – When it comes to all your personal and professional needs, Facebook is a must have. Not only can it help organize your life by keeping you updated with things like friends birthdays. It also is a must have tool for your business life. Being able for such a small amount to market to your exact target audience. Facebook is killing it in this aspect. As a Realtor you can spend hours walking door to door and dropping off flyers or you can spend minutes setting up a marketing campaign for less money. It will reach way more people too, up to thousands of people a day. Try walking to a thousands houses a day…Good Luck!
