6 Free Apps for Business Owners

by Amanda Prischak on April 4, 2017

Payroll, taxes, operations—there are lots of details to stay on top of when you run your own business.

Fortunately, today’s evolving technology makes it easier than ever to be organized. And small business owners rely on it: A survey conducted by the National Small Business Association revealed that 70 percent of small business owners said that technology is key to their success. 

Of course, more complex technology solutions can cost quite a bit. But many others charge only a modest fee—or are even free. That’s the case with the six phone apps below. They can help you get the job done at no extra cost. Read on to see how.

The app: Google Keep

Best for: Creating lists

What it does: When you need to offload an idea for later use, this is the app you’ll want to use. Google Keep lets you create notes and lists, set reminders, loop in a “collaborator” and more. Even better, it automatically syncs to your devices. 

The app: Wave

Best for: Staying on top of accounting

What it does: Whether you want to create and send an invoice, scan a receipt or create an accounting report, Wave has you covered. The free version offers a surprising number of services—and more complicated functions like paying employees are available for a fee.

The app: Send Anywhere

Best for: Sending large files

What it does: Few things are more frustrating than being unable to send a file to someone because the size is too large to email. That’s when Send Anywhere can come to your rescue. It gives the recipient a six-digit code to download virtually any size file you send.

The app: Buffer

Best for: Managing your social media presence

What it does: Social media can give your business a big boost. But managing multiple accounts can be time consuming. Enter Buffer, which lets you post to the five most popular networks at scheduled times throughout the day. The app also gives you analytics reports so you can see which posts are performing the best.

The app: SignNow

Best for: Gathering signatures

What it does: How does signing a document or getting someone’s signature with no need to mail, fax or scan anything sound? SignNow makes that possible with just one simple finger stroke serving as your signature. The free version gives you five signatures a month—after that, it’s just $6.99 a month for the service.

The app: FocusZen

Best for: Gaining concentration

What it does: Feeling distracted? If so, plug into FocusZen’s specially created audio tracks to help you concentrate. There are a variety of tracks to fit whatever task you’re working on as well as a variety of time increments.

Be a Boy Scout

If you were ever a Boy Scout as a kid, you know how important it is to be prepared. Prepared for what? For anything that life throws at you. It’s true when you’re camping in the woods, and even more true when you’re running a business.

 

We really hope that your business is never affected by an earthquake , tornado, freak meteor from the sky or other natural disaster. But these things do happen, and an ounce of preparation before the unexpected can make picking up the pieces much easier.

 

  • Back up your data early and often at an offsite location. An external hard drive won’t help you if it is damaged or destroyed in a storm. Consider offsite data storage or storage in the cloud.
  • Make a comprehensive list of all of your equipment, furniture, and fixtures. It’s much easier to file your claim with a full list of your property. Pictures are even better!
  • Have a disaster preparedness plan. Do your employees know what to do and where to go in case of an emergency? What if you have customers in house when disaster strikes? Click here for more information on creating a plan, and make sure to store it both on and offsite. It’s estimated that 40 percent of businesses never reopen after a natural disaster. With a little planning and some help from an Erie property insurance policy, you’ll be back on your feet before you know it.
