List of little-known tools but very necessary for entrepreneurs




The work schedule of an entrepreneur is 24 hours a day and that most entrepreneurs performed exhaustive searches of the best productivity tools to grow your business, organize and to be able to expedite its work and thus be more efficient with your time.

Many times we spend enough time in search and try different tools to see what where we best fit according to our work and budget. There are many tools of productivity free, but sometimes worth it penalty invest a small subscription monthly and devote our time to it really important and not wasting our time (that to your time is money) in do tasks daily that us carry it half of the day, what us makes less productive.
At the speed that is Internet and technology, thus also will develop new solutions that facilitate us every day. We become accustomed to using only Excel (for example we all know) and ourselves we limit the possibility of learning tools are often fast, useful and often impressive and visually most beautiful results.

ACA les bring a list of tools really useful to improve our productivity and that the result of our tasks not only is better, if not that is make of way more efficient and productive:


It is becoming more well known, but I realize that there are still many people who don't know it, so included it. It is ideal to unify communications working groups and companies that have teams all over the world (or not) and it is super simple to use. It's amazing to see how some companies today use their Skype Messenger or Gmail so all equipment is connected and communicating, mixing the personal with the professional, using tools that do not give them even half of what you can give them Slack.
Everything communicates in slack is in the cloud (information is not lost and is recorded). You can chat, send files, photos and best of all is that you can have several open channels. I.e., in your control panel you can have a channel to your sales department, one for your Marketing Department and another for your Networking Group with whom you meet Thursday and they do not work in your office all in the same place!


So if you're self-employed or company, delivering content of value to others has many advantages. If you want to create and deliver your own courses live online, webinar, or hybrid courses (live video+sesiones), you'll love ClassOnLive. Unlike Hangouts or gotowebinar giving you just the video conferencing platform, ClassOnLive gives you everything you need to avoid having to deal with plugins or with various tools at the same time it includes you all in a single web: the landing page of your course, automated reminder emails, forms registry, platform and payment management , etc.
It also has a Marketplace where you can publish your courses and access to its community, which serves as additional channel of promotion. It is very simple, easy and flexible to use. You only have to worry about creating your content and deliver it. Also in ClassOnLive you can create your own Academy with your logo and just customize your environment with a few click, without technical knowledge.

Pushbullet notifies you of things like incoming calls or SMS messages or whatsapp, which you can see and discard from your computer and which are deleted on the mobile. Although it has features of payment that are very well, the part that provides free will also help you to be more productive.

All the material has been created by designers who then put it on sale. Creative Market is like having a designer template J there are designs for all tastes, but in general everything is done with very good taste and quality.
I use it a lot for when I have to do presentations. I don't well design for what I personally love the ability to enter a Creative Market, find a presentation that I like and then just add the content. Before it took hours to make them and now I use one of their templates and now do not care about design. In the case of the presentations you find them for keynote or PowerPoint.

Since I discovered Momentum, the truth is that it is a pleasure to open a new tab in my browser. Now whenever I open a tab in my browser displayed a magnificent photo which covers all my screen and that refreshes me eyes, gives me the time and weather, and even the good days.
Momentum has 4 essential parts: the first, there is a photograph that is used in a fund that emphasizes calm and changes automatically every day. It is usually beautiful and spectacular landscape. The second is his inspiring phrase. A phrase that motivates you and that is changing daily. As a third element is the time and the time that updated them every time you open the browser and also gives you good morning or good afternoon as applicable. The fourth element help with your productivity. Consists of a main task that you fill daily and a list of outstanding that you can go off to measure go doing them.
All this Momentum gives it each time that you open the browser. Does not help you just to be more productive, if not that calm you and inspires you to be more creative.






We have all heard and most likely that you already we have used Google Drive and Dropbox both personally and professionally, so are no longer non-novelty to save and share files of all kinds, especially large, those who weigh much.
The primary disadvantage of these tools is that you must upload it to the cloud to be able to then share it. According to what is good, but there is a tool that simplifies it even more and is called Wetransfer.
Sometimes all we want is to send the file by email without having to upload anything to the cloud, but email is very restrictive for sending large files and often freezes up. Wetransfer is for that. Wetransfer you only have to put the email (s) recipient (s), attach the file and give the Send button and now! The person receives an email with a link to the file you need to download. You must not register which sends him nor he who receives it, everything flows smoothly. The best thing is that you can send up to 2 GB free and doesn't take up space in your files that you have in the cloud.


When someone mentions us in your web and put our link in your article, our link within this website may be considered "do follow" or "no follow". If you are "do follow" is that this web site has been generous and gives us part of his 'authority' which adds points to our page Rank. The "no follow" links are the opposite, i.e., are those in which the web that we mentioned does not give us some of their authority. If you get a link "does not follow" don't get discouraged because with just mention you are advertising you J
If you want to know quickly, simple and permanent type of links you have a web, use the NoFollowSimple extension. You will frame each link in those red dots that are "no follow" and if they are not marked that they are "do follow". It may sound all very technical, and only for companies engaged in online marketing, but the truth is that it is not. Although we are not experts in SEO, as entrepreneurs or leaders of teams it is good to have some basic knowledge to determine how it affects us advertising which are giving us on the Internet.
To mention one drawback is that whenever you see a link on a website you'll know that type is, so from now on every web page that you access will see red dots everywhere!


The moment email is not going anywhere and we will continue to work with him for a long time more. Therefore, that Mailtrack is really useful because informs you when the emails that you have sent has been read. I have worked with other similar tools and what I like about Mailtrack is that it is very simple to use. At the moment it works for Gmail and you can use it free of charge and without limitations.
The best is that it uses the same system with the "checks" whatsapp. for the verification of who has read your posts. As a "check" whatsapp is that email has reached the recipient and 2 "checks" is that you have to read it. You can also login to a control panel where you know that messages have not been read yet. Very useful to track your clients, to know who opened an email and simply decide not to answer.

Since installing this tool I can't stop for different uses. It is very simple and allows users to make screenshots of parts of a web page or web pages of complete (for very long to be!) to save them, write comments and even share them with other users or social networks.
It is very practical and easy to use. We should install the extension that will then appear on the toolbar. Having it so accessible, you'll find yourself using it for many things. You just click the icon and it will give you several options:
-If you want to make a copy of the visible part of the screen
-If you want to make a copy of the web whole
-If you want to choose you (customized) section
We choose what we want to and you're done! We can then write on the screen and save it as image. If you previously used the "print screen" button, once you pass to Awesome Screenshot will not return back.


Showbox is a tool that gives you everything you need to create your own video and results of high quality, all from your browser. The best thing of all is that it's free and fairly simple to use and its aim is to guide you through the process of editing without having to learn complicated techniques and still get a result that look professional since they provide you many resources to achieve them (pictures, gifs, etc).
Showbox is created for those who want to create a video for your social networks or your own website without much budget and without having to complicate your life much.
Showbox can come in very handy if what you want is to make creative videos but if what you want is to record a presentation from your computer there are simpler tools such as Techsmith Jing that not even 5 minutes you take to begin to record your computer screen.


Today it is nothing new that you know many tools to organize and post automatically to social networks and possibly already use one. But MeetEdgar is something different and more complete since it is the only allows you to organize your posts by theme. I.e., through MeetEdgar can organize and schedule your posts by "inspiring phrases", "what's new in your product", "third party advertising", "your market statistics" etc.. and also assign a picture to each.
Once you already have everything organized and planned, you have your created library and MeetEdgar sends it to you according to the days, hours and social networks that you've assigned to it. What is different about MeetEdgar is that as well as you post the photo with the text, you can choose every Monday send a post about inspirational phrases. Now, imagine that you have just been heavy @ and not have been able to add to your library nothing new. By means of an algorithm, MeetEdgar takes a phrase that days ago not you post library and uses it to post it.
At the beginning we can believe that posting repeated messages can be counterproductive, but quite the opposite! Experts recommend using that content that most successful have had 80% of the time once again to have the same positive impact.


It's a web site where you can create sounds easily super simple! It is completely free, original, and you don't need to sign up to start creating music simply by drawing or scrawling. No matter if you have no musical knowledge, this won't be a hindrance so that you can create your own music in this tool and then be able to record the audio on your computer file.
Just choose the note that we want to play and drawing with the mouse in the center of the page to make the note sound with the frequency and style that we indicate in the top menu. "Music" you've created starts touching and may include new notes.
It is an excellent tool for creating sounds for your web, application, presentation, podcasts or videos, as well as the possibility of creating them in a very original way. You can create from soothing sounds to create percussive sounds whether things work or simply use it to relax a while.


I don't know if many of you know it, but when you are looking for a hotel, a plane ticket or other purchase online, Web pages have to identify (through cookies) if it is your first, second or third visit to your website to compare prices, so as part of its strategy of selling more expensive prices between more visit them and do not buy.
All this artificial intelligence knows that if you enter several times looking for a Madrid-Milan ticket and the second time you realize it has the price is a bit more expensive, well, your impulse to buy is greater (of course, before that continue to rise in price).

One way to avoid this to happen is to go "incognito", without a trace. The duckduckgo search allows you to just this. Browse privately, without that we are tracking every second as does Google or Safari. While they are seekers extraordinary, when you have to go on vacation, now you know as sure that they are not changing you prices and confirm that offer good luck!
