There are hundreds of online tools on the market and, of course, choosing the right one sometimes becomes a difficult task for most entrepreneurs.
The drawback that many entrepreneurs find is that given the large number of tools, they do not know which one can best adapt to the needs of their company. And they waste a lot of time testing and researching.
But don’t worry, I’ve also gone crazy trying tools. I have discarded those that do not add value to me and those that have not been useful to me. For this reason, I have created a list of tools, divided into different areas, so that you know the ones that have made my life easier when managing my company.
Keep in mind that each business has its peculiarities and needs, but in general all these can be perfectly adapted to any project, whether in one sector or another.
Next, I am going to name some tools and resources that have helped me optimize my time and improve my work performance (and that of my employees).
These are some areas that I have focused on to classify all these tools: business productivity, project management, presentations, communication between teams and email marketing.

These three tools are essential to be more efficient in your work:
How many of you are to write down in a document, on paper or online, the pending tasks to be done? And not only yours, but also those of your employees … Many of these tasks fall into oblivion, which prevents you from reaching your goals.
For this reason, I recommend these online task managers, ideal for working collaboratively through intuitive dashboards. These are structured in columns and each one represents different states: assigned to someone, pending, in process, completed. The cards go through the different columns until they are completed.
One of my favorites is Ora , a task management tool that is especially relevant when there are several departments in a company and the members of each have to communicate to carry out certain actions. Other similar tools are Asana and Trello .
A good entrepreneur will also need to have basic design notions. Although the normal thing is to delegate this task to a designer, sometimes you need to create something quickly, be it for networks or email marketing , and you need to get out of trouble.
To do this, there are three tools that you should know and that will save you on more than one occasion:

Communication between teams is key so that you all go in the same direction and meet the established objectives. For this, I recommend that you know:
Undeniably, one of the most effective ways to communicate with your customers is still email marketing . Email, although many of you deny it, is still a powerful communication channel with which you can maintain a medium and long-term relationship with your customers.
So choosing a good email marketing software to correctly manage your emails will be key to your strategy. To choose one or the other, you must take into account aspects such as: quality-price, customer service and that it complies with data protection regulations.
My favorite is Mailrelay for all the features it offers and especially because it has a free version with many advantages. With the free version you can reach 15 thousand contacts, sending 75 thousand emails per month for free. There is no limit of shipments per day and you have support included.
To start this software is great. Afterwards, you can contract another paid version if you need it. It offers you tutorials, autoresponders, easy scheduling to make your shipments, statistics system, advanced subscriber management and A / B tests for your campaigns.
I hope that all these online tools for entrepreneurs are useful to you and that you can get the most out of your project with them.
Did you know all these tools? What others would you add to this list?
