As advocates of efficiency, Riselabs uses a number of great tools that enhance what your team is capable of. Here’ s some readily available tools that offer a helping hand in your business day.
We utilise all of the below tools to improve our productivity and ensure there’s no delay in communication or action we can take. Note, the tools mentioned below are tools we use daily and links are provided without affiliation.
For teams with multiple projects, Slack is second to none at keeping everyone in the loop. You can set up groups specific to projects and invite who’s needed, ensuring you can keep updated on the ‘need to know’ conversations within the business. What’s more, files can be shared directly, and you can also integrate third-party services directly into the feed, such as project management tools. You can even provide guest access for collaborations with freelancers or other businesses.
With the likes of 1Password, the ill-advised passwords written on post-it notes can become a thing of the past. 1Password is a place to centrally store passwords in folders where they are relevant, using a complex master password for access. You can also ensure your team has access to specific credentials depending on where they are stored. Need a new password? 1Password can also generate passwords directly from the app that are exceptionally secure.
Adobe Spark is a brilliant tool for creating web pages, graphics and videos to enhance your business’ branding. Spark allows you to either create material from scratch, or leverage a host of typography and image templates – you can also directly access royalty-free images, too. In fact, this article’s post title was created using Spark in a matter of minutes.
It also has predefined template sizes, which makes light work of creating slick marketing posts without the headache of working out whether things will fit appropriately. Following that, you can share them anywhere or download for later use.
Nibbler offers website audits, letting you know what’s working well on your website, and what requires improvement. By simply running your website’s address through Nibbler, you can receive a breakdown of the performance factors that affect your website, from marketing and user experience through to code quality. If you need to know a little more about the changes you can make following an audit, then Riselabs are happy to talk with you about the best course of action.
Milanote is a new tool allowing team collaboration to create visual idea boards and store all the notes about a project. It’s great for branding projects where team members can contribute their ideas and leave comments for others. We’ve used it for sharing ideas with clients so that they have somewhere to see all of the parts of their project come together.
Note, Milanote was also nice enough to upgrade our account to a Pro version for our mention here on this post – but our unbiased opinion on the app remains the same.
Check it out – it’s like Pinterest, but far more powerful!
